There's 117 champions, it's not Riot's fault that 90% of their playerbase ... only play fotm champions.


Yes it is their fault. players want to win games so they can feel good about their rating. No one is going to pick champs that are under powered or don't perform. They will pick champs that can stomp games easily and consistently, also known as over powered (OP) champs.

Can we like stop referring to the top 3 of each role as the "holy trinity." Such an overused term.


Especially considering holy trinity generally refers to tank/damage/heal

To be fair 95% of the player base isnt plat or above, specifcally on NA

Generally only the high elos stick to a small pool of what wins games.
I'd say that most of the lower elos do have a LARGE variety of what they play/main.. Its just easier to win with the overloaded kits/get used to playing against overloaded kits.
So its what you see so often in high elo.

At least nautilus has a shot at getting some badly needed buffs to make him more intimidating and respectable on the team.

for patch 4.4 can we break up the holy trinity of each role?
Jungler: Elise/lee/vi
mid: Gragas/leblanc/ziggs
top: Renekton/shyvana/mundo
adc: Lucian/jinx/cait
support: Annie/thresh/leona

if riot breaks up the holy trinity in each role, i'd be satisfied with the patch.

If they did that... Would that make Riot the Trinity Killer?
