Hello,
I would like to ask those who think of themselves as professionals in LoL, and have high elo and been playing since beginning. I can play some champions very well and do my job in team, and with some I am lame, but still, i get this feeling that some champions even if I dont try hard, are more useful than the ones Im pro with, and I try hard.
With this said, I think there are some funny champs to play , but not viable in high elo games, for example ezreal, cassiopeia, pantheon, etc.
So can you tell me for each role the best high elo champ which is most played?
please name a
1.tank
2.support
3.AD carry
4.AP
5. melee

Thank you for your opinions and comments

Ashe is considered THE best carry at high elo and you know why?

Her ult, her dmg is actually lacking when compared to say corki or MF BUT her ult (+ hawkshot's utility) make her one of the most useful carry's ingame.

Now consider if amumu (or another strong initiator) is in the team, why would you chose ashe?

Now her main strength her AMAZING ult is rendered (almost) useless,you could pick another carry with more dmg and/or utility like Cait for her traps,range and dmg or MF for her stronger early,dmg and better synergy with amumu with her ult.

My point is there is no TEIR 1 OMFG MUST HAVE TO WIN champion, only good team compositions

But thats my opinion im not exactly a high elo PRO

P.S By Melee i hope you mean JUNGLER ^^

Thank you , by a melee i mean, AD tanky dps, which i believe is a MUST in every team composition. like olaf,trundle,garen, u know what i mean, i dont think that a TANK and 4 squishy ranged are the best pick )

however, i agree with you that every champ is good and its about team combination, but I asked whether there is a higher priority among some champions in high elo, like for example, you got 10 AD ranged, but only 2 are played on ranked high elo, which are those? and so on...because i DONT believe that people in high elo ranked actually tanke PANTHEON or TWITCH or MUNDO, or do they?

Actually picks in high elo are pretty limited.

AD melee top lane best picks are prolly Jarvan (with gold per 5 item spam) and Warwick (don't actually play him AD lol, more like, dorans ring, sorc boots, wits end, spirit visage etc)
Ad ranged carry Vayne (bot with support)
And AP is Rumble (solo top)
Support janna, soraka, taric don't see much else

Basically all those are getting a nerf next patch i think. Just watch a few streams and u'll soon see.

Ok her's my opinion on the most desired picks

Atm there seems to be a 2 offtank metagame rather than a traditional tank so here's

Solo Top: Irelia/Jarvan/Rumble(maybe)/WW(FotM)
Mid: Malz/Annie/Anivia/Vlad (although he normally goes top and the tanky dps mids)
Bot: Any Support except karma (to farm dependant) + Ashe/Cait/Vayne/Corki/MF
Jungler: Nunu/Trundle/Amumu

These i would say are the most desirable picks for a "standard" team but as i said its all context sensetive

THats what I wanted to hear, I often see warwick, but is this true, that in high elo hes usually AP (magewick) isntead of standart AD tanky?

And about janna, do you recommend playing her for AP/HP (RoA+rabadon+soulshroud) or full support (aegis, soul, shurelia etc.) ???
