Is Yorick Top Secretly OP?

#1shutyourmouth03Posted 2/16/2013 9:46:15 AM
It looks like a lot of people on other sites are saying Yorick counters a lot. I haven't seen him very much so I don't know if they are Yorick fan boys or if he really is OP.

He has fallen out of favor due to recent nerfs and other tops have had buffs

It's not really a secret that Yorick is essentially a bigass wall in lane. You don't see him much because his entire job after laning ends is to ult the carry.

theres nothing secret about it >_> yorick is easily the safest top lane imho and his ult makes it a 6v5 so yeah

EDIT: id like to note that like others I don't think he's OP as a champion overall, it's just his laning is OP

they say his late game pays for his early game dominance... but i think its a matter of play style

the amount you can tank end game as a well farmed yorick is unreal, and dealing moderate dmg to boot (manamura really helps late game for a little extra power from its active) and people says his ult is dependent on adc doing well, which is the BEST option but having a fed dps junlger can really mess up enemy team

and because of the nature of his ult a fed ap mid can also benefit. the other day i was playing ranked with a lebonk that destroyed her lane, i held mine... but bot lost tower fast and jungler got counter jungled HARD

late game rolls around lebonk is still one comboing people, gets low, use ult... dies....


oh no... in the time it took for her to die her ult is back up....

lol she got a quadra kill.... there are other uses for his ult is what im saying

over powered? no... an amazing pick on certain team comps? yes

a lot of people are sheep so they won't believe a champion is strong until a pro says so

Don't forget ulting the Karthus. Bombs and Defile everywhere all the time.

I wouldn't say he's op in the slightest, He's a safe pick but he isn't without his weaknesses.

Yorick is ok when he's with really high DPS champions. Yorick works wonders with Vayne, Kog'maw, Karthus, Cassiopeia and similar hypercarries.

But, he's not the same top lane stomper he once was and his late game suffers. I'm not a fan of him myself, not even that scary in lane anymore.

You're just jealous because the voices are only talking to me.

Secretly? No. He's blatantly a hard counter to pretty much everyone, and is very difficult to counter himself. But once the laning phase is over he just becomes an ult-bot and damage soak. Really, his only role is to make sure their top doesn't get fed and start destroying his own team.
