Remember, on GameFAQs only terrible players ever get hit by skillshots.


Yes indeed, they are easy to dodge, but also impossible to miss if you're the one casting them(and you don't suck obviously)

Gamefaqs logic seems to be no one should ever get hit by a Skillshot at all, but they should be getting hit all the time?

Riven doesn't shine top nearly as much as mid.


Riven is a great top, and IMO is the single best champion in the game (Truly the best level 1, and should easily be able to finish the game dominant and strong).

Riven just can do SO much more mid


Sorry, but Riven's level 1 isn't THAT great.

Gangplank just decimates Riven level 1, as does Darius, Nidalee, Teemo, Kennen, Udyr, etc. etc.

Darius level 1 > Riven level 1.

Riven truly peaks at level 3.

it's not sleeper op if everyone is talking about it.

j/s

but if we think about what makes a mid a mid, it's escapability (cause you can get ganked from multiple directions) and good damage to keep up with the enemy and some sort of sustain (i count shields), riven has everything needed to be a mid (generally any "caster" will be a good mid, riven = ad "caster")

so yeah...its' really just no one does it cause "OMG PICK AN AP MID"

Except she's melee, gets kited, and can get baited to go all-in (blowing her E + Q) and will be easily set up for a jungle gank.

When I'm going top as Singed, I like baiting out her level 1 Q, flinging her then exhausting her into our jungler.

that can be true for ranged champs too.

either way she's a good mid, and an ap mid should try to win early, whereas a riven would try to be cautious early (ie, not blowing their combo when they're pushed)

idk who i'd use her against tho lol, probably someone like galio.

Why would you use someone who counters AP, as a counter to an AD?

Comprehension fail. I thought you meant I'd use Galio against her.
