Dom will never be ranked. Just my 2 cents.

I strongly, strongly disagree with some of some of Patrick's assertions. Yes, there is always a god-tier of champions, but that god-tier is determined from queued play, not Tournament play. In fact, tournaments are one of the few places we consistently, regularly see people pick champions that never, ever get chosen in solo queue. Conversely, the champions that are very strong in the hands of an organized tournament team are often far, far weaker in a solo queue/partial premade situation.

And I don't know who you're talking to that said that Sivir and Sona are indisputably the best carry and support respectively, but that point of view is about two patches old, at least. If anything, at the time of this writing people are more worried about Urgot going pure tank/Frozen Heart and being tanky while still being able to fulfill the carry role.

Poppy is actually pretty dang awesome if you play her right in SR. Sure, she has a slow start and can be prone to harassment early on (especially from ranged), but once you get a few items (like a pair of upgraded boots and whatnot) as well as levels, she starts becoming a monster. Then she can push lanes/tower dive like crazy while a good number of champs learn to avoid her like the plague.

@Sorithal Poppy is one of the worst lane pushers, and even though she can dive and molest squishies, she's hard countered by tanky teams who just bait her ultimate then CC/kill her. You can put her top lane, but be prepared to farm under your tower all day. She doesn't really fit anywhere else...

She's a complete powerhouse in Dominion, but then again, so is every champion that normally shines late game because of the massive farm boost you get in that game mode.

Jungle Poppy solves the lane problems. I have played ranked games with a few good Poppy players who carried our team. Once they get mid/late game they can be absolutely devastating.

You're commenting as Xetelian.

End game champions excel
Anivia can counter Hiemer bottom
Janna can help counter Rammus's speed
There are people like myself who play it all the time now and would love to see it beta ranked then have ranked.

@(Unverified) You can keep playing unranked if there is ranked.
