    well top is just full of op champs. though against good teams most tops can't hard carry outside of mid game. Irelia is a notable exception. I play every role with top probably just the most annoying. Wardings not a problem lanings not a problem its just an annoying lane. The game of top if u screw up if the other person isn't bad you lose. If you push top lane if the other person isn't bad you can't farm unless you're super overextended and can't harass because all you have to do is take 2 steps back into turret.

    Personally i enjoy mid and jungle most. adc is fun just gets boring after awhile with people just yelling at me too farm when i play aggressive on bot. mids almost always a rather aggressive lane with at 6 insta gibbing everywhere. Also a strong mid with decent move speed can snowball much faster than top. Top is usually just a 1v1 with jungle ganks all day and you don't leave much with mid you roam constantly applying pressure everywhere(same thing as a jungler basically) i feel mid is the best balanced of all the lanes. If you make a dumb mistake you'll be punished hard but even when behind if they screw up 1 time you can get them. Noones super tanky to just survive w.e and dive super early

    The role I prefer to play is ad carry, but unfortonately since my laptop is not exactly good, it's kinda old tbh, during teamfights my fps drop from like 24 to 10 and it's enough for me to not be able to move and attack at the same time, specially when I'm playing Vayne with ms speeds and with her ult up... I hate this since I think I'm kinda more than good at ad carry and I can't be better because of my fps going low in teamfights.

    I also love to play mid, but rarely I am aggressive, specially when playing champions like Kennen, I don't even want to auto attack them for w dmg, it just doesn't do much in my opinion and I'd rather farm fast and go gank lanes instead of being aggressive in mine. This applies to almost every mid champion, except for lb, veigar and cass(can't remember anymore now), with those I am a lot more aggressive since I have a good distant to poke them without taking much dmg in return.

    You know there's something wrong with your team when you get +4 honorable opponent votes and only +1 teamwork from your own team.

    Well, I'm noticing a definite difference in a lot of players attitudes since the Honor system. I didn't think it would be a huge difference, but I've just had probably the best game of my life. My team weren't assholes when it came to the others surrendering, no "gg easy" or shit like that. The enemy team weren't shitehawks about it either, they just said GGWP and picked out myself and a Malphite as the key parts of our team. Left with 3 honors, 1 for teamwork, one for helpful (gave our AD carry a lot of advice) and one for honorable opponent.

    Is there any particular role that's best for bot "lane" in dominion? Every game a friend of ours will just yell over and over how tanks/support are supposed to be bot lane while everyone else goes top. I know it's normally 1 bot, 4 top, but doesn't seem right that tanks should be down there, or support for that matter. I'd say tanks go top for the initial rush for the top base, while a good pusher or something goes bot to hold them back down there, but that's just my guess.

    So why does Xin Zhao not see a lot of play time? His burst consists of a gap closer, a AS steroid, knockup, AoE knockback. He has sustain and gets tanky with his ult too. Also the song "Be a Man" fits him perfectly. Only downside I see to him is that he will fall off when everyone has full item builds, but that doesn't happen a lot and many champions have that problem.

    He is amazing at 1v1 though so he seems pretty good for top lane. Burst and knockup seems like you would have an easy time winning trades against most champions.

    Oh there's plenty of Xins out there, but I think Kha'Zix and Rengar might have overshadowed him for a while. Also there are other viable picks for jungle (Amumu, Alistar, Shyvana, Udyr and much moar.)

    If everyone plays him, there's a problem. If nobody plays him, there's a problem, and with Xin it's in the middle, he's fine after the rework.

    He's still lacking in the escape department, and he needs to get fed/farmed at least somewhat, or else he'll be in trouble.

    Needs to be very strong at a few things:
    1) Pushing (see: Yorick)
    2) 1v1 (see: Jax)
    3) 1v2 (see: Heimerdinger)

    What exactly you put there depends a bit on what you want to do as well.

    There's several tier lists for Dominion. Take a look at those.

    I've seen a lot of Teemo's go bot in Dominion and do alright. Same with Jax and Olaf.

    Pre Jayce the best early bot laners out there were Riven, Malz and Urgoth. None of them are tanks/supports, your friend is wrong. There is NO sense in sending support to solo non-pooterss task, no sense at all.

    That's what I'm thinking. When I play janna, I'm great at getting points they ignore, but everyone runs off and I HAVE to get bot or we won't get it. Then the games I don't go bot, he yells at our tanks to go down there, seems like a complete waste. The entire enemy team's damage is going top, why would you NOT want the tank up there?

    Get Zilean for that task. You will be better both as roamer and botlane pusher (bombs>gale). Janna is more teamfight/counterroamer oriented.

    Getting some strong appreciation for Irelia again, going with a Tri Force build, armor boots, Maw and then stacking any AD I can. Hurts like a truck.

    I like to go tri force then mogs->atmas/frozen heart, both in the end, then get some mr and proceed to do something else.

    So far I haven't really had to, I've been up against fairly poor teams recently which is fortunate. I've just been making up builds as I go, basing everything on my top lane paring first of course then switching around from there. I had enough farm and gold saved in the middle of my last match I had the opportunity to switch from magic res boots to armor boots, seeing as their only AP was Kennen who was already being pounded into oblivion at mid lol.

    If you're snowballing hard, instead of going warmogs, I would probably go brutalizers or maybe wit's end, maybe wit's end, then proceed with mogs/frozen heart->atmas/mr.
