: Not banning a champion is a double edged sword. On one hand, it does expand the champion pool for the match, yet at the same time, that means the pool of champs is expanded for both team. To add to this, you can use it as a way to potentially make the enemy team show their hand first. How? Well, by banning champions you, to a small extent, reveal your lane. An example: people who ban assassins are either ADC's or a mid-laner that is countered by said person. Banning an ADC or Support typically means you're in bot lane, etc. I might be reading too much into it, but not banning can leave an enemy team guessing to your role, and could (in theory) make someone ask for their pick to be chosen from someone on the team to ensure they get who they want, but can lead to counterpicks. I always see the ban phase as a sort of mind game when it comes down to it.
i find it kinda absurd since im a support and i ban a jungle. means what? im a nasus and i ban vayne. you cant read anything from it
