Honestly, the past couple of times I've played Swain I have been fed 10+ kills, but for some reason he just isn't able to carry your whole team as another major ap mid would, feels like he just doesnt do enough burst damage. I just don't feel like he does enough damage as other ap mids do such as ryze or karthus who will carry your team. just off experience
Hmm. Also, with his W vs melee/ junglers / gap closers.
Aaah, I liked it more when no one played him. Too hard to kill, you stick around him trying to kill him? Takes forever even with ignite and you lose soo much HP and his damage is AOE so he will get you down to like 75% all 3 of you.
I know, a simple trick, if he ults, cancels, go in during that 5sec CD on his ult.
