Are there any overpowered/terrible champions?

#1DonevenoPosted 5/25/2010 8:10:55 PM
I know that, like all games, X will always beat Y, like Kassadin has a big edge against Soraka. That's not what I'm asking. What I'm asking is if this game has champions that are just crap in any situation, or can beat basically any other champion. I've heard Evelynn is pretty much garbage.

The top tier include, Jax, Sivir, Fiddle, and Alistar.

Most of the "bad" characters are the melee only ones or ones without any ability to stun or be useful if stunned.

When it comes to ganking, Poppy is incredibly broken.

I have a friend who went 29 kills and 3 deaths on his first time playing as Poppy, and only on his 3rd match.

Evelyn dominates if no one on your team bothers to grab any Oracles.

Jax absolutely dominates 1v1 and holds up against 1v2 depending on his opponents. He's not broken per-se, it's just the rest of the melee champs suck.

Fiddle is only OP if you're unaware enough to catch the Crowstorm.

Sivir farms/pushes like crazy, and if built right, makes teamfights 10x easier because of her God Aura stacking.

Shen is 10x the tank Alistar is. You can't beat a global tele, 2 shields, an AoE taunt, and damage that scales with health.

Overpowered? Janna, Soraka, maybe Ezreal. First 2 for sure because they drastically improve your team's chances of winning and are easy as **** to play.
Terrible? Eve, Trynd, Teemo, Veigar. There's a couple other heroes that make me groan "Why," but those 4 are simply not viable right now.

That list seems to be causing a lot of uproar. Which to me is good. I'm a SSF4 player and, while there's always a few people saying "nuh uh the character I use isn't top tier because [crappy explanation]", there's a general consensus that some characters are flat-out better than others. Here it seems like most of this list has several detractors, suggesting the balance is more finely-tuned that in most games. Or I could just be wrong.

Personally, I honestly wouldn't say so.
Irritating? Yes.
Really bad in the wrong hands/Difficult to play? Definitely.
Completely and totally worthless? I can't think of a single one.

Regardless of tier, all champions can fit in somewhere - maybe they would require certain team builds and the like, but honestly, it really just comes down to what you enjoy playing. Sure, you could say that certain champions are much better than others, of course there isn't going to be complete balance, but none are incapable of being good in the hands of the right player.

Nah, the main reason is it's not a 1v1 game, the forums are filled with idiots who think their favorite character is not that bad, some champions synergize well with others, etc.

That list is *fairly* accurate.

While I used to promote Locust's tier list- it is now just plain bad.
