An incredibly difficult topic of dicussion, because nobody particularly likes metas that much, but if you had to pick a meta relative to a season, which would you pick; Season 1, Season 2, or Season 3?
Further, I'll tell you that this is only on the heels of a HUGE argument I had with my friend - he looked me straight in the eyes and told me "the only characters that can play ADC are ranged." I laughed at him, he's literally only involved with the meta and doesn't seem to notice anything about the actual game as-is - frankly, it's an ignorant position to be in. Show him the melee ADCs(those both labelled as such by League of Legends and the ones according to the meta), and he will just look at you like you have three heads and tell you you're wrong.
It's downright ignorant - I don't hate him for it, but I do hate the meta for it. I think my favorite meta by far was Season 2 where I'm 90% certain he never thought that way before Season 3 itemizations.
It's no doubt that metas change people, but how do you think the meta changes you? Do you notice it? Do your friends notice it? Get into any stupid debates like mine?
I wanna hear it all.
