WHO TO BAN?
That is a very complicated topic to talk about. Usually people BAN champions that:
- Are stressful to play against
- Are very strong in the current meta
- Counter a champion they want to play
A typical example of a champion that it is stressful to play against can be Xerath. Xerath has a repeatable and long range poke which can make it really stressful to have peace on your lane. His stun has very long duration and he can recover mana easily just by auto attacking you. You can outplay him with ease. Quick Riposte can turn the fight around, but he is very annoying and thus ban-worthy for some players.
An example of a champion that is very strong at the current meta as for time I was writing this is Annie. She is holding a 53.04% winrate and her playrate is only growing up. She is powerful, popular and very effective at this time.
An example of a champion that counters AP Fiora can be Malphite. His poke is very frequent and hard. His engage is stronger then yours, it is almost impossible to trade into Granite Shield and his ultimate when paired with a jungler is just a GG. BAN him If you don’t want to fight your direct counter.
But If you really don’t have a champion to BAN, then here are my personal recommendations:
