Meteos sucks on everyone except Elise/Zac/Rek'Sai/Gragas. Rek'Sai is banned every game. Gragas was nerfed into oblivion. They keep running AP mid/top so he can't pick Elise or Zac otherwise they will be too AP heavy. So we get to see his terrible Lee Sin every game.

Pros really are on another level. Look how good Meteos got after only an hour of practice.

There is still other choices, Teams just suck at playing new things/trying out new things. I remember when I played Nidalee jungle like 1 month before she was played mainstream in the jungle. Then she got the buff that monsters could be hunted as well and suddenly everyone played her and realized how strong it is. Then after multiple nerfs she was still being played, at that point she was much weaker than she was before the hunt buff.

Re: Worlds 2016

TSM needs to move away from the Jhin IMO. Doublelift just does not look nearly as strong on it compared to any other ADC in the meta. They had Cassio/Sivir right there to take in their 2nd rotation, but didn't.

Love how everybody praised Smeb for that ult, it's just a move a bronze could pull out by pressing R if enemy team is packed without any way to peel an engage

Re: Worlds 2016

the kennen ult was like 15 seconds into the fight at the exact moment they grouped

also it needs a mega nerf, it's basically fiddle ult that you don't have to channel now

Also deals more damage, by quite a large margin. Fiddle ticks deals slightly more, but tick only once per second, which Kennen ticks twice a second. Fiddle's AP ratio is 45% and Kennen's 40% so Kennen gets a lot more out of AP.

Pretty weird it took so long since it's been a while since kennen got to his current powerlevel.

Seems it was in May when the ulti got an overhaul, in the past it hit targets randomly, now it hits everything.

Re: Worlds 2016

Well Kennen is strong, but it was also a teamcomp thing of G2. I think the last pick Gnar is horrible. The only thing they got to stop the Kennen is Nami bubble and wave once that's gone he can just run at them.

G2 Teamcomps have been awful for a long time and at this point I doubt they fix it.

He also went full AP, like no utility. Most people don't do that. Imho, iirc

A bronze player probably blows the ult earlier when the ulted Olaf runs in solo. Much of the strength of the play was having the patience to not use the ult for the first 10 seconds of the fight and then using it at the proper moment.

and uses flash doing so.

That's the thing with LoL, it's not a hard game in theory, after seeing something you are oftentimes like "hey that's not that hard".
