So lately I have been wondering about what people have been playing and what has been working for them. A lot of people have different opinions and ideas on what the meta is/be. Considering how different the game is I feel as if it should be disused and what has worked for you guys and what you wanna try! I personally think pretty much anyone can kill the ADC. I feel like he is one of the most valuable still, but the fact that he is an easier target since supports have gotten tankier, that maybe remove the jungler. That may sound crazy considering how good it is to have a jungler, but hear me out. I feel like it should be:

Top lane: Bruiser/ Tank support
Mid: Heavy roaming apc
Bot: ADC support.

How it would work is getting both buffs at the same time. Bot gets red (if starting blue side) and that support takes smite to make it go faster. This way you can still have someone with a smite steal possibility. Then mid and top help get mid blue buff. Mid will have blue and will be level 2. BAM. Advantage for what should be your strongest player. Then top will probably be a 2v1 or just getting the brusier fed. Both top and bot take relic shield for shared CSing. (SUPER OP RIGHT NOW BTW). Because mid should win lane because of level 2 and buff start he can roam pretty easy. I feel like someone such as TF would be a better choice since you can run him with TP if you really need to get back to lane. Kass, fizz, ahri, zed all work as well. This makes any losing lanes get back on track (even though every lane actually has advantage they shouldn't). Bot lane will have Red and golems as per usual. Mid will have Wraiths and wolves. Top will probably have big wraith or blue if they really need it. Preferably mid will have it since that is really the person that needs to snowball the hardest to really make this work. So if mid keeps track of blue timer and takes wolves/wraiths whenever he should just have a huge cs advantage overall. Top will have the 2v1 and have less to worry about in all reality. I think that top should have a good snowball champ like Riven, and have a tanky sup like leona. Leona of course will build tank and damage as well as buying wards here and there. Bottom will have your average (preferably safe) bot laners. I.E. Sona, Ezreal, Thresh trist, Corki annie.

Top will be the person who will probably help initiate a fight with top support (Leona, Alistar, Nautilis, Volibear, hell, even Gallio!). So by logic, someone like renekton, nasus, Shyv, Pantheon, Olaf, honestly anyone who can follow up.

Mid should be guarded by having good spacing in team fights and maybe someone with heavy peel as the bot support. Their job doesn't change as much besides having to roam more.

Bot
should have someone that can peel for the carries. I think the current bot meta works. Annie, Sona, Thresh, and Nami would be great choices.

I can see this working if Mid does not get fed and snowballs, but at the same time your other two lanes have advantages and can roam as well. It isn't just mid's job to roam!

This is a very high risk high reward idea, but if anyone would like to try this please let me know! Also comments are more than welcomed :D.

If I could do Ziggs Mid, I'd be down.
