In this episode, sOAZ provides an overview of how to choose your champions and playstyle for the top lane. Usually, mobile champions are perfect for Solo-queue as they tend to have more presence on the map. Champions that can move around wards and are fast on the map get more done. Bruisers like Irelia, Renekton, and Aatrox are very good in Solo-queue because they are strong laners and have the potential to carry in the later stages of the game. Any champion that can one-shot the enemy bot laners tends to be good.
