There's only so many ways to play out a 5v5 all melee match. There are currently 74 melee champions in the game
: Melee only game mode
In that scenario all 5 ranged champions are AP so itemization is generous later on but i agree that it isn't unwinnable have 4/5 melee champs. Ask them if they had any fun for the first 10-15 mins and theyl probably say no. I consider {{champion:126}} {{champion:150}} {{champion:76}} {{champion:60}} to be pretty much ranged champs who dive in when your within kill threshold. p.s. remove {{champion:126}} from the game <3
: Melee only game mode
Could always just introduce bans if certain champs are too strong cough trundle cough but generally I don't see them as an issue tbh like if your in a 1v2 scenario with sej and name champion here your probably dead anyways.
: Melee only game mode
well generally in lol ranged has an advantage over melee so all other game modes including SR pander to marksmen/zone mages anyway. I understand excluding a portion of player base who like ranged isn't ideal but I don't see much interaction in getting kited. additionally most of the skill involved in playing these ranged champions is merely positioning. One counter argument to this is the presence of assassin's which do deal with ranged champions quite effectively, until they build hourglass/GA or take a peeling support with them. Maybe my opinion is quite bias due to playing a lot of top lane as a melee champ
: Melee only game mode
I agree that 5 poke champs vs 5 poke champs is pretty dull, god forbid there's a single melee champ on each side and they don't do anything for most of the game. Ascension is actually my favorite game mode and if they ever did make a melee game mode i'd love it to be on ascensions map. Unfortunately the objectives made it kind of dull if someone just went shaco or something and camped a crystal.
