Cho gath is pretty good at solo top, however nasus is probably one of the champions who needs it the most. Irelia and jarvan is good as well, not to mention udyr and lee sin.

Silly question. This game is about counter-picking. You can't pick Udyr against Caitlyn, but you will absolutely crush Gangplank or Nasus. If the enemy team has Singed, you probably shouldn't pick Jax. And so on.

So champions are situationally strong. Nasus is a good pick if you know you won't get kited and you'll get loads of easy farm. Warwick and Udyr are great against anyone with low sustain and/or short range. Galio is not bad if they are AP-heavy and you won't have a real support going bot. If you don't know who you're facing, then Cho'gath is possibly the best universal, all-around solo-topper. He can farm against anyone and won't fall off dramatically even with poor farm. But I don't think Cho is the king of solo top: many champions can beat him with smart play, he has the bad habit of pushing the lane too hard, and it's not easy to pick up kills as Cho because he's quite predictable.

Picking the right champion is not just about who can win the lane, but also what your team needs. While Warwick is my favorite solo top champ, I can't really pick him if I'm the only tank in the team and the enemy is tanky and AD-heavy (my WW's core is optimal against AP, and he has a field trip on squishies). I may have to pick Malphite instead, even if I know I will lose a little in farm.

That said, I voted Urgot. He has pretty much the best lane control in the game. This also means you can put your bruiser/assassin bot with the support, and pick up some easy kills. Taric/Xin Zhao will be a nice pair against Ashe and Soraka, for example.

so mine question is:
1v1 or 1v2?
most people aswers are more likely 1v1 tops and some are better as 1v2

But the point about counter-picking is right. In blind pick, and elo with both tops, i recommend morde, chogath, jarvan and gragas 4 example.

Against melees, Olaf, Nasus and Warwick are solid choices, but they will most likely be slaughtered in a 1v2 lane.

All-in-all, my vote goes for Irelia, the queen of solotop.
