I have been playing League of Legends since the end of season one, back in 2011. In that time, I have Played a reasonably small pool of recurring champions. For a while, I just played Garen, before a long stint where I mostly only played support champions like Sona. Nowadays, I have around a dozen or so champions that I regularly play, and a few others who I go back to less often.
We updated our list of the best League of Legends champions.
But in the six years I’ve been honing my skills, neither I nor any of my friends have really subscribed to the meta - the unspoken rules of the game that define the best strategy according to factors like win-rate, which are most often shaped by the professional scene. That is not to say that we have never played champions that are strong at a particular time, but we all prefer to settle into champions that suit our personal style.
