Anyone that loves to carry the game is sure to love Fiora. There's very few champions in the game who are capable of running away with the game the way a Fiora can. Her combination of percent true damage and ability to turn hard CC back on it's source makes her any tank's ultimate nightmare. If you've always wanted to try out the top lane, but don't care for the tanks that tend to live there, than Fiora is your gal. Give her a shot this week!
If you like making melee auto attack champions miserable, than Teemo is the champion for you. He's the perfect counter to all the free week Fioras that you're likely to see, as Fiora can't do much of anything at all to Teemo. Be forewarned, though, as Teemo's only real function is as a lane counter. If you get ganked or forced out of your lane, it's often lights out, as Teemo is amongst the most useless champions in the game when it comes time to teamfight. Playing Teemo is all about shutting down the enemy top lane so hard that the game becomes a 4v4. If that sounds like your jam and you love making every other member of your game miserable, take Teemo out for a spin while you can!
If you, for some reason, love to lose at League of Legends, then by all means take Rek'Sai out onto the rift. The Queen of the Xersai is a shade of her former self, as her recent rework was, to put it lightly, a complete disaster. Rek'Sai has found herself without much of a role at the moment, as her damage scaling demands that she builds a heap of attack damage, but her kit simply lacks the tools to make that a good strategy. If you don't believe me, then feel free to try her out, but WWG refuses to take responsibility for any LP that you forfeit in the process. We warned you.
On the other side of the spectrum, we have Elise, who is the most powerful all-around jungler in the game at the moment. While other picks can certain outperform her when the situation is right -- Elise won't be able to compare to a Zac/Orianna combo, for example -- Elise's flexibility makes her a jungler without equal. She can itemize for any situation without sacrificing all that much, and her kit ensures that she'll easily slot into any team composition. If you're still not sold, then consider the fact that Elise is one of, if not the, best early game gankers in the game, a strength that you should have no problem converting into some sweet LP after a couple games on her.prevnext
Talon is in an odd spot at the moment, as he has been hit hard by the continuous adjustments to the lethality items, but he's still a fairly strong pick. In fact, a few short months ago Talon was such a dominant pick that he warped the solo queue mid lane meta entirely around himself. Unfortunately, that's not the case anymore, so don't expect free wins if you play Talon. He's an extremely difficult to play assassin that requires bot a strong understanding of how to roam out of mid lane, as well as a flawless sense of when to enter teamfights. If you want to practice those skills, that Talon is a perfect pick, because without them he's as useless as a champion can be. Once you master those skills, however, Talon will carry you far.
Speaking of hard to master champions, Xerath is one that will carry you far, assuming you can learn to hit his wide array of skill shots. Every single skill in Xerath's arsenal is a skill shot, so he's a great pick if you want to work on those. Xerath is an unusual enough pick that most players won't know how to appropriately handle him, but as you increase in rank you'll need to be aware of his flaws. Assassins, in particular, give Xerath fits, so he might not be the best pick if you're seeing a lot of Kassadin or Ekko. In any other case, though, he's a fun to play champion that's certainly powerful when played well. Definitely worth a game or two!prevnext
There's not much to say about Varus that his ubiquity doesn't say for him. If you've watched a game of professional League of Legends lately, then you know all there is to know about Varus. He has a great laning phase, a great pick tool with his ultimate, and has great scaling throughout the game. You can never go wrong with Varus, which makes him easy to slot into your champion pool. Not only is a he strong champion, he's also one who's gated behind a high IP cost, and thus one that many new players might be loathe to buy. If you play ADC and you're not sure who you should be picking up with your hard fought IP, then give Varus a spin. He's the gold standard for ADCs at the moment.
Draven, on the other hand, is a terrible champion to pick up and play. That is not to say he's not a strong champion. He is. He's simply so difficult to play that it's not worth bothering. Other champions can perform just as well as Draven in every level of play, but Draven's unique mechanics demand that anyone who wants to play him well spend a ton of games learning how. Give him a spin if you want, but be forewarned that Draven is not a champion that forgives mistakes. Playing Draven is all about riding the knife's edge form the beginning of the game to it's end, so don't get frustrated if you fall pray to his notoriously harsh learning curve.prevnext
Thresh isn't just any support, he's the support by which all others are measured. Thresh has been the dominant force in the support role for almost the entire time he's existed, as his kit brings such a wide variety of utility that he's simply impossible to compare to other champions in his role. If you like making clutch plays, then chances are you already own Thresh and play him every game you get put in the support role. Those of you who don't already own Thresh should definitely take this chance to try him out. He's one of the most meta-defining champions in the history of League of Legends, and he's an absolute blast to play on top of that. A great Thresh will carry games all on his own, and that's not an easy feat to mimic in the support role.
While Thresh is a great champion to pick up for all the playmakers in the world, Soraka is a wonderful one for all of the more defensively minded support players out there. Soraka is the closest you can get to a cleric in League of Legends. She heals, heals some more, and then when the time is right she activates her ultimate and heals her team for even more. Suffice it to say that locking in Soraka is volunteering to do nothing but heal your allies while placing wards for the next 35 minutes. If that along with an oppressively strong laning phase sounds like your jam, then give Soraka a try.prev
