Shen counters Tryndamere solo top!

#1Worm199Posted 12/17/2011 8:10:15 AM
Infact, he counters most solo top champs in the game.

His early level harrasment is insane! Tryndamere cant do anything against it.

Oh and he can help his team split push too.

Soooo why do people still think that Shen sucks?

Because champions get nerfed, and people just forget about them, and think they suck versus everyone. (Shen's early game was never really touched, and got buffed a while back)

because nobody plays him - thus the circle continues

I still find him more useful for a team than 50% of the champs in this game.

That is because he has hard AoE CC and can deal some damage even as pure tank.

His damage at lvl 1 isn't bad but Trynd just sustains through all of it while hitting him harder.

The longer the laning phase goes the worse his damage gets, at lvl 10 all he can do is sit back and last hit with Q.

Then teamfights start and all he can do is use his ulti that gets progressively weaker as the game goes on and use a taunt that is simply outclassed unless you're playing with baddies and they all group together for you to taunt them.

Shen's strong on top for the first few levels. That's it. Good Trynd will maul him.

That's why you build Tanky AP. Tryn's damage is wasted on Feint assuming he can even get to Shen through the Rylai procs on Vorpal Blade, and Stand United actually gets much better as the game progresses. A 1200+ HP shield lategame is a heck of a deal.

Well the point of a succesful solo top shen is to harrass the opponent out of the lane at the earliest levels. If you manage to do that, then congratz, you are gonna deny them.
