    "I can't truly attest for the content of this solution since I am not familiar with LoL, but the site they use to deliver the solution is quite possibly the best solution out there. Wikia sites based on games/movies/shows provide the absolute best source of in depth information along with supplemental information to fulfill the needs of anyone looking for knowledge."

    "A cool concept if only the game worked. Every time I tried to play it either froze up or didn't do what I wanted it to. It seems like they rushed this one out without proper testing. As a result, there are entirely too many bugs that should have been caught before roll out. Maybe I will give it a try in the future after everything is fixed but for now, I have to pass."

    "Unfortunately with the current meta Jarvan isn't anywhere near as strong as he use to be. His main utility was being able to create a wall around an enemy champion or champions allowing him to beat on them senselessly while they couldn't escape to the safety of the team. Currently however, the majority of champions have skills that allow for them to easily dash outside of the wall once it is erected leaving Jarvan standing around with nothing to do."

    "Yorick is probably one of the cooler characters in League of Legends because of his backstory and his abilities during gameplay. He looks like a giant medieval gargoyle mixed with a warrior monk which is definitely a pretty cool aspect of his appearance. His health level is pretty strong compared to other characters thought what really make him stick out his that he can basically resurrect mist walkers to fight for him. The League of Legends website does a great job of explaining his background and his abilities pretty clearly. "

    Written on May 25, 2017
    "According to League of Legends Wiki, Kayle is a great character to have in your entourage as her abilities amplify your allies and their vision. I like using her because her attacks are probably one of the strongest especially against large crowds and even individuals. She's pretty quick on her feet and is quick with her attacks though her health levels are okay so I use her sparingly. Her bio on the League of Legends is pretty awesome because it outlines everything about her in a really stylish and easy to use format. "

    #16Malphite - The Shard of the Monolith

    Malphite - The Shard of the Monolith

    There is a world of perfect harmony, where all are part of the whole. The Monolith is the essence of all creation, and its denizens are but singular pieces of it. It is beautiful in its symmetry, and in its almost complete lack of uncertainty. The rocky beings that live there know their place and work to fulfill their duties to the fullest extent, functioning almost as a superorganism or hive. Malphite has always strived to live up to his full potential, as his own personal part of the whole, serving the role of a distinguished creature questing to enforce his people's flawless vision of order.

    "Malphite is a slow, but dependable character in League of Legends. He has excellent shielding abilities, which make it difficult for him to be injured in combat. He deals a high amount of attack damage as well. However, his spells are limited to combat, which means there is not much ability to do anything other than simply plow through your opponents. This might get tedious after a while for more imaginative players"

    #17Kennen - The Heart of the Tempest

    Kennen - The Heart of the Tempest

    Kennen The Heart of the Tempest is ranged caster. His primary resource is energy, akin to Akali and Lee Sin. His passive, Mark of the Storm, is placed on a champion whenever they are hit by one of Kennen's spells. At three stacks of Mark of the Storm, the target is stunned. He can often initiate team fights by using his ability Electrical Surge and then casting Slicing Maelstrom. Kennen is commonly played in both Top and Mid lane. Recent competitive play in Europe has also displayed his capability as an AD Carry.

    Other

    Ann Carr
    Written on October 4, 2017
    "What most people don't realize is that Kennen is actually pretty mechanically intensive and requires a lot of ingame knowledge to be played correctly. He used to be a dominant pick a few times in the past, but that was almost exclusively in mid to high level play. Pros agree that he's borderline overpowered in teamfights, but he has a few hard counters (namely Lee Sin and Janna, their long distance knockbacks make his life hell). Running out of energy on him is also very punishing, because in order to replenish it he needs to chain combo targets all the time."

He seems to have a really cool ninja background though his bio seems so short and vague.

I've used Jayce and could never beat players that picked characters that did range or melee, he just does both not well. It would be better if he was a bruiser with a single style of attack. "

    #23Akali - The Fist of Shadow

    Akali - The Fist of Shadow

    Akali, the Fist of Shadows is an energy-based hybrid/AP melee assassin whose short cooldown skill-set excels at sticking to enemies and dealing massive singe-target burst damage. Akali can be extremely elusive in lane and during team fights through the ground-targeted AoE stealth of Twilight Shroud and the on-target dashes of Shadow Dance. Her passive allows her to be deceptively strong in one vs one engages, often healing enough to sneak out kills no other champion could get. She is typically found as a solo mid or solo side-lane carry.

    "I was looking into which LOL champion is the best, and this wiki article on Akali has shown me that this character is not the best. Because this character is difficult to use, the character won't help me win games. Also, because the character is a solo-mid, I cannot use this character for my play-style. "
