I'm just looking for new ranged champs to play aside from the free ones each week. I like Ashe and Ryze but it seems like every game I start, Ashe gets picked instantly (as does Garen but I don't care about him)

he almost never gets banned, mostly because almost nobody plays him. watching pro streams can help you learn the game, i personally would suggest watching Wingsofdeath and voyboy because they commentate their games and what theyre doing and why. They both play top (the solo lane champs that are normally bruisers) so you wont see how to play every lane most likely, but you'll still learn about the game. another thing is to just play, and focus on 1 thing a week.
if you want to learn adc, i would say caitlyn and ezreal are the two best to learn from, cait's range is really good so you dont have to worry about kiting too much, and ezreal is just a slippery bastard you can never catch if you know how to play him. when you learn the basis of the roll, then you can start picking up draven, going straight at it you'll probably just think hes too hard and not want to play him again, although you clearly have seen how strong he is.

Don't let that discourage you though if you really like the champ, if you play him a lot while leveling you will get good with him (this holds true for any champ).
great advice here, vayne is also up there for hardeset adc. but picking up draven early if you can handle it will be a huge benifit because you'll see so many people not realize he has some of the best trade damage in lane and a crazy late game if you play it right, so not only is he stronger in lane, but people will still play hyper aggressive, and you can capitalize on that very easily and snowball. whether youre leveling up your account or at 30

I think camera lock os default off. Also many pros don't smartcast so it's preference.

Lol Ryze is a spammer. And I do smartcast every ability on every champ, active items, and summoner spells. It's just a matter of preference. Some pros normal cast all abilities or just specific ones like anivia's wall.

Mordekaiser is fun! He can be very dominant I see. Plus it's stupid how easy it is to farm with him

no they have to own the champ to be gifted a skin, the only way you get the champ from the skin is the special promotions. for ex. the riot graves codes they give out at events will unlock botht he champ and skin

Support fiddle with a 3 second fear is just too fun. The kass can't blink away with 4.2 seconds of no cast time.

Mord is a very snowbally champ, win lane and there's a high chance that's gg. It's also fun when the enemy adc is super fed and you just take him with your ulti and Face roll team fights

I'm surprised support fid isn't more popular, especially considering how long he can keep a bruiser off your carries in a team fight while having decent damage with a running ulti.

And smart casting helps but I wouldn't say it's an absolute must. It does give for faster reaction times and the ability to drop combos fast (veig, LB, Ryze) but you can always avoid those champs if it's that hard for you to learn (although ryze kills in this meta)
But not having your camera locked is a huge thing. To see the whole team fight is the most important part and you just can't do it locked in.

I forgot to bring this up earlier but on a reddit thread it was talking about the blue side having a 62% win rate or something like that and almost all the upsets came from the front runners playing purple. Any thoughts on this? Cause I feel like blue side does always seem to have an advantage for whatever reason.

Blue side has an advantage in professional play. In solo queue it's probably closer to 50% win rate. The reason it is so important in professional play is because of the first pick. There are a few in game advantages that coordinated teams can take advantage of.

Speaking of Fiddlesticks, played a game last night as Ryze and my team made me play solo mid against Fiddlesticks and Yi. Pretty frustrating getting silenced every time I went to harass. Then when I went to play bot, Fid followed me there. Very pesky

And what I peronally hate about purple side is baron fights. It's much easier to have vision around baron if you are the blue team. That curved bush that's impossible to ward is really annoying.
countering barons as purple so hard though without blinking in, such a pain.

10-1 anivia; they calling me articuno -.- did turn a 1v4 into a triple kill though with my egg, they burnt 3 ignites and 2 flashes xD

I don't see how HUD changes would impact map side advantages.
