There are four streams of minions in the game, which dictates how players disperse across the map. Three travel through the top, middle and bottom parts of the map, and there’s another group that stand still in the jungle. Each champion has talents that better suit them to one of those four areas and that’s why the first three positions are called TOP, MID, and JNG. Teams usually start off with two champions on the bottom lane, which are called ADC and SUP
TOP – Top lane champion tends to be further away from the action. Because the top lane is easily flanked and there’s little backup from the team, the best top lane champions are more defensive. They tend to do well in killing minions but don’t get as many kills and assists.
JNG – This player kills minions in the middle of the map but the creeps in the jungle are more formidable so the best jungler champions can take more damage at the expense of firepower. They are close to the action and are the first to join in team fights. This position tends to perform below average in killing minions and is average in kills and assists.
MID – Mid-laners have less area to defend because they fight so close to the home base. The best mid-lane champions are more offensive, and the area is closer to any action that could occur. Mid-laners are above average in both minions and kills, so they make great captain/stars.
ADC/SUP – There are only four streams of minions so two players tag team the bottom of the map. Teams choose two champions that have complementary skill sets. ADC champions tend to be very heavily weighted to offensive ability while SUP champions are relatively ineffective on their own but have great synergy with the team. ADC characters kill most of the minions in the bottom lane while SUP champions must be effective without gold. Support tends to get few minions which puts them in the hole compared to other players on the team, but they excel at assists. ADC tends to get lots of minions and kills, so along with MID tend to make the best captain/stars.
