Orianna?

Anyway, straight from Salce's stream:

Me: " Serious question, forumfags keep telling everybody to pick support, jungle and ADC first, and leave mid and top for last to avoid counterpicks, how come no top elo streamer does this?"

Mod1: "because counter picks aren't really an issue for solo queue.
you can outplay your way out of most match ups."

Random guy: "that's useful for ranked teams."

Mod2: " Solo queue is basically player skill more than anything"
"Also most people in soloq go by the "first come first serve" rule."

Me:"I see, ohwell, they also demand people do it even in soloQ
And don't forget the lane callers
last pick -MID MID MID MID MID"

Mod1: " ignore the forums, forums are dumb."

Mod2: " So if you're last pick then enjoy playing support!"

ori or anivia usually, and i've personally hard countered Ahri several times on brand to the point where she wasn't able to buy a deathcap.

Tanky AP Champs, like Cho, Mordekaiser, Maokai.

ori, anivia, and lux imo have very few hard counterpicks, if any unless the enemy laner plays kassadin

Morde is far from nonconventional, he's practically the definition of a hard lategame AP carry.

If you can E the enemy champ + the backwave minions, you just absorbed all the earlygame burst and won the trade.

But he's countered by dot/sustain mages like Brand, Cass and Swain.

Funny, cause I was gonna say Anivia too. I think Karthus does fairly well, but I don't know enough, especially since part of the reason for Anivia is egg. Really, we might be starting to hit new laning though, with how much the pros are doing it. I'm expecting to start seeing people start to move lanes around to try to counter each other more and more.

Well, I'd like to suggest Eve.
She has a lot of counters, but no super hard counters.
Even against things like Swain, Kat, Ori and Vlad, she can usually manage fairly well.
Of course, later she's going to destroy all of them.

What champion can I first pick every game and not get countered? I feel like Ahri and Kennen are pretty safe, as they can CC people who gap close on to them an safely farm in weak matchups.


Your two examples are such a funny thing to put as your example because... there is a champion that would like to meet you.. his name is Ryze..
