How come GP Top isn't very popular

#1wilmer007Posted 11/21/2012 9:01:59 PM(edited)
I rarely see it as he is one of the few top champs that have ranged abilities (Teemo, Jayce, Nidalle, Pantheon come to mind). Is it because noobs will use Parley on farming creeps? Because i don't farm a single creep with Parley in the laning phase and i end up with like a 2 level advantage against the opposing top and those Parley harasses force them to really fall behind in CS. Plus he has a speed up and slow downs to avoid getting ganked or chasing or escaping.


And sustain from oranges while at the same time removing CC.

I don't get it.

Because people who know not to trade with you at level 1 then come back around and kick your ass. Plus GP is actually weaker as a top these days because of the newer and FAR more powerful toplanes released, who also happen to usually have CC.

He used to be popular top and jungle pick until he got nerfed a bunch of times now he's a bit outclassed compared to many others.

Even if u don't try to trade with GP at level 1 GP still is leveling up his Parley when he levels up. Besides when u come up to last hit a minion your gonna eat a Parley therefore free dmg for GP.

I like using Bankplank and just ulting other lanes for that global ganking.

Urge to kill self rising.

There must be hope.

bankplank is the way to go

play him like you would nasus or ad sion

join your team mid game and proceed to melt everything

works best with a TF (and soon the new avarice blade)

it's only as serious as you want it to be

Had a simular question. Is Nasus outdated as a top now? People seem dissipointed when I pick him. How about Xin? Do I have to play one of the new or more established champs nowadays?
