Is Tristana bad or just unpopular?

She has arguably the worst mid-game of all the AD carries.

And her auto-attack feels incredibly unimpressive.

She's just weird. Incredibly strong early game and late game. Incredibly weak mid game.

Other than that though, she's probably tied with Ezreal for safest AD carry.

She's kind of sub-par. Sure, she has probably the strongest AS steroid, and a great range (At around level 9+ imo, i think thats where she starts beating cait) but thats about it. She has a E that doesn't do much for her if shes ad, her R while its nice is nothing to be consider better than say ezreal, graves, ashe, even sivir's ult or any other adc really. Its just more that she's not as good as the others.

One of the strongest early games, actually, with her level 2 burst being well within kill potential if you have a good support.

As said, her mid game suffers as her skill damage falls off and she becomes really item dependent.

Her late game can be godly. Massive Attack Speed steroid getting you close to speed caps with just a Phantom Dancer. Two repositioning tools so you can peel for yourself. Grievous Wounds so you can duel with anybody. Longest range in the game at level 18.

It's just that you have to get there first.

A lot of people don't really like to see Tristana on their team because a lot of baddie Tristanas tend to use their jump to initiate or secure a kill. Granted, it resets on a kill so you can get out just as easily if you play it perfect, but why take her incredibly long range and dive into the middle of a team? These are the kind of throws that Tristana players frequently make, making her seem like a not so viable carry.

She is just like all other ADCs. Needs at least two tanky bruisers with 180+ armor, 150+ mres, and 4k+ hp to tank and peel for her.

Honestly, something like Galio + Alistar for mid and support. Throw in something like Olaf + Jax for jungle and top. Easiast game of Tristana's life.
Just about no one can initiate on her. Galio's slows, speed up, and ult taunt means any initiation is lost on Galio. Olaf and Jax means the damage to kill anyone trying to get to Trist and to go kill enemy squishies. Alistar has boss mode peels for Tristana coupled with the rest of her team.

No matter which way you slice it you'll both be ending up in Hell!

Currently, the meta is very midgame oriented. Hint hint.

This is irrelevant to Tristana. This would be great peel for any ADC. What makes Tristana unique is that she has a long reposition jump and a huge AoE knockback so she can peel for herself if you DON'T have those tools at your hands.

She is just unpopular. Strong burst early. Best adc lategame, tied with vayne. awkward mid game. In theory you should be able to use her early burst to get fed and avoid that middle weak phase. Ultimately, she is best as a counter pick, and paired with an aggressive support. Pick to counter any dangerous aoe (kennen, fiddle, etc).
