The power of each of the positions of League of Legends is a very common debate in the League of Legends community. A discussion that usually points out the medium and jungle roles as the most powerful and in which there are few doubts when it comes to doing otherwise with the shooters. During the past months, the ADC have systematically criticized Riot Games due to a minor relative power than Riot has tried to justify. A situation that was even ridiculed by the community but that, finally, has proven to be justified.

A miniature research that has yielded not too surprising results that place the jungle (23.33%) and medium (22.67%) as the highest positions of the classification.
The distribution, taking into account Europe of the West, North America and Korea is as follows:

A complaint for a good part of the year could only be based on sensations, but it shows that If Riot Games goal is the tendency to a statistical balance there is a lot of work to do. In fact, the most surprising thing is that the percentage of players who choose a handle as their main position in League of Legends has not been reduced.
