I've noticed that in Bronze and Silver ELO (Specifically 1100-1400), certain champions are almost always banned. These include
- Amumu [tank]
- Malphite [tank]
- Shen [tank]
- Singed [tank]
Why is it that these champions are more likely to be banned than others? Also, why are tanks often banned in ranked play? I don't believe it's because the champion is overpowered.
This thread may be closed, due to Why are characters banned in tournament play for DotA-likes? but I really want to be more specific right now.
Also, these bans aren't very common in professional level play, so why are these champions so often banned at the 1100-1400 ELO? Please note I'm talking about a specific ELO so the answer would be different than the link above.
