It’s no secret that League of Legends can be a frustrating game. Bronze players especially know the pain of getting reported and banned for doing something as innocent as accidentally clicking on an enemy champion. However, there are some bans that are so outrageous, they make you wonder what the person who reported you was thinking. Here are the top 5 best bans in bronze in Season 12.
Bronze is a weird place. On one hand, you have people who are just starting out and don’t really know the ins and outs of League of Legends yet. On the other hand, you have experienced players who can make your life a living hell.
Bronze players are often tasked with the uphill battle of trying to win games against opponents that are often far better equipped and more experienced than themselves. While luck and chance do play a role in any competitive environment, there are specific things bronze players can do to tilt the odds in their favor and give them the best chance at coming out on top.
In this blog post, we’ll be discussing the five best bans in bronze during Season 12. Hopefully this will give you a little more insight on who to ban and why. So without further ado, let’s get started.

League Of Legends Game:
League of Legends is a 5v5 online battle arena video game developed and published by Riot Games. The game is a free-to-play title supported by microtransactions. LoL is one of the most popular Internet games. According to Riot Games, it is played by 650 million people.
In League of Legends, players are formed into two teams of five players, with each player selecting a Champion to play. These Champions do battle on a variety of maps while trying to achieve an objective, such as destroying the enemy team’s base (in Assault) or collecting and holding ten items spread throughout the map (in Control). The Champions gain levels and power through combat and the collection of gold, which allows them to buy better items and equipment.
Players begin League of Legends by selecting one of the 100+ play-ble characters, known as “Champions”, and joining a match to fight against other players and computer controlled minions, using their skills and specialized attacks to earn gold for buying items and gear or defeating enemies.
The champion must traverse the map in order to attack other characters, which allows them to kill enemies, gain experience points (XP), and possibly capture more powerful items such as runes. If a champion loses all its health (referred as death) then they will respawn over a period time at the player’s base after moving through an environment that is designed to help you be able to level up your abilities without having too much danger; this gives the game a RPG feel.
The game is won when the enemy’s base is destroyed or when an imprisoned Baron Nashor (the strongest neutral monster on the map) is killed, and at that point victory is decided based on how many of the enemy team were killed.
Best Bans In Bronze In Season 12:
In Season 12, the best bans in bronze were definitely those that could completely shut down an opponent’s strategy. In the game, the character has to traverse through an environment full of enemies and level up their abilities without having too much danger; this gives it a RPG like feel.
Finally, you win when there are no more opponents standing, which means you’re able to take out any other opponent you want until they all die by your hand. Read More on Best Late Game ADCs in Season 12
When playing in such divisions as bronze 5, players should keep these things in mind when playing the game. If you play with a non-meta strategy, it might not be so effective and your enemy will most likely ban the champion(s) that is causing a lot of trouble in their team. Therefore this guide focuses on which Bans to use when going against these non-meta strategies.
Annie is an incredibly powerful early game champion, and her burst damage can easily take out enemies who are unprepared. She has a powerful combo of Summon: Tibbers and Disintegrate which can leave your opponent nearly dead depending on their health pool.
If you’re looking to shut down an enemy’s strategy, banning Annie is a great way to do it.Some of Annie’s popular character skins include Red Riding Hood, Prom Queen, and Super Galaxy.
Kassadin is a specialist champion who excels at dealing with mages due to his passive magic resistance and his ability to use his ultimate, Riftwalk, a few times before needing to wait for it to recharge.
Kassadin’s low cooldowns on all of his abilities combined with the mana cost refund from using Riftwalk makes him one of the highest DPS champions in the League against squishier targets. Some of Kassadin’s popular character skins include Deep One Kassadin, Harbinger, and Festival Kassadin.
Twitch is a champion that has seen meta play in the middle of Season 12, mostly due to his high damage output and strong assassination potential. He tends to shred quickly through the health bars of the enemy backline with his Expunge which can be combined with Ambush for lots of burst damage on an unsuspecting enemy.
Twitch’s weaknesses are mages who have enough range to keep him away from their carries. Some of Twitch’s popular character skins include Medieval Twitch, Kingpin, and Whistler Village Twitch.
Samira is an assassin with high mobility and good damage. Her ultimate, Sandstorm, makes her one of the most annoying champions in League of Legends to try and kill while she’s using it because of the knockup effect it has on enemies that are trying to attack her.
She also tends to do well against mages because of the magic resist she gets from her Siphoning Strike; however, if she gets behind or can’t get off her ulti before dying, then you’ll find yourself dealing with a pretty useless champion on your team. Some of Samira’s popular character skins include Djinni, Aviator Irelia ,and Kayle.
5. Lee Sin
Lee Sin is a very versatile jungler with an exceptionally high damage output. He has a kit full of crowd control and the ability to dodge all incoming abilities, which can make him difficult to lock down if you’re not prepared for him.
His ultimate Dragon’s Rage allows him to kick enemies back into your team, but he can use it offensively as well if you happen to be too close to a wall when he uses it. Some of Lee’s popular character skins include God Fist Lee Sin, Muay Thai Lee Sin, and Pool Party Lee Sin.

Frequently Asked Questions
What does counter pick mean?
When you are in champion select, choosing a counter pick will lock your choice before the other players choose their character. This means that if someone chooses to play as Annie, you can immediately choose not to play against them and either dodge the match or wait for the next game before you get stuck fighting that person.
The same goes if your opponent bans Annie; then it is very likely they would like to play her so you should avoid playing against them too.
How do I report my opponent?
If you believe your opponent is cheating, disconnecting to avoid losing or mind gaming (for example: giving up first blood but still playing), there is an option under “more options” at the bottom of the “recent games” section after you’ve played a game with them to report them.
Please attach any relevant screenshots and information as well as the summoner name of your opponent for Riot to investigate and take appropriate action if needed.
What is ranked and what does it mean?
Ranked matches (previously called solo queue) allow skilled players to put their skills on display in five-minute matches where they fight against other similarly skilled players for rank placement. Each match has its own individual series of eleven tiers that one can progress through, or fall back from, depending on win/loss ratios.
If you want to be able to target your enemy team’s weakest links during champion select, this would be the place to do so because friends are not allowed. Ranked matches are automatically locked if you’re in a premade with anyone on your team.
Is it possible to lose LP by disconnecting?
If you leave or get disconnected from a match that is not considered “normal,” aka no leaver buster, and the result of the game has already been decided before you quit, then yes, you can lose some LP for doing so.
It’s best to not leave any games at all if at all possible and to play through even the most frustrating of games because quitting can cost you rating if there is no one else left in your team to take up the slack.
Do I have to play ranked matches? Is unranked matchmaking different than normal matches?
Both unranked and ranked matches function exactly the same way. Unranked gives you an opportunity to get familiar with new champions or test out different builds without having your rating affected in any way, while ranked locks you into playing only people of your skill level.
What does MMR mean?
MMR stands for matchmaking rating and is a hidden value that determines how good you are at LoL relative to everyone else who is currently playing this game. You gain or lose points based on either winning or losing a match and how many points your opponents have compared to your current rating, which allows Riot to rank players against each other more fairly than simply putting them all in one big pool together like they used to do before introducing this feature.

Bronze players are notorious for picking champions that they’re unfamiliar with, and as a result, their team compositions tend to be very weak. Because of this, it’s important for teams in bronze to ban certain champions from the game so that their opponents don’t have an unfair advantage. If you can keep these champions out of your opponent’s hands, you’ll have a much better chance of winning the game.
That’s it for now. If you have any comments or suggestions please comment down below. I’ll be happy to hear from you and will definitely take your thoughts into account when making future posts. Until next time, best of luck in Bronze and may the odds ever be in your favor!
