Does Olaf suck now?

#11Reaper_MinionPosted 2/21/2013 6:53:19 AM
Win rate is low because people are not accustomed to the heavy nerfs.

He's still viable but going pure tank is noticeably worse now. You have to sneak a damage item in your build. I have to assume that the new BotRK will be a good Olaf item.

People put far too much stock in win rates.

pretty much every champ that wants to dive a carry is going to want BOTRK

Olaf wins lane loses game. He has little team fight utility. Garen does his job but 100x better thanks to a huge AoE nuke and a silence. Olaf is more of a dueler

because after the nerf people stopped playing him is my guess.

Less (good) people playing him leads to more loss rate

loss rate isnt a good thing to look at tho.

Olaf wins lane and wins game, he doesn't have much CC but if you stack HP and CDR you just mash E on whoever you want to die and they do


if Olaf stomps his lane he will carry much harder than Garen would -_-


tbqh the reason people stopped playing Olaf as much as they were before is because whenever a champion is nerfed (no matter what the nerf was) everyone assumes the champion becomes absolute garbage no matter how viable they still are. it's just ridiculous sheep syndrome

I find this extremely hard to believe, Olaf just doesn't have the team fight presence that Garen does. Olaf can charge the ADC and take him out, but can he also silence the APC rendering him useless and then proceed to deal 1k damage to every enemy in one attack? The only advantage Olaf has to Garen is single target dueling

The enemy team saw you running towards their APC and they did nothing to stop it? Even if they didn't, it takes time to get to the APC as it's a melee silence, he can still get off his burst before you get him.

Why is the entire enemy team standing on top of each other? You are seeing Garen through foggy glasses in perfect circumstances, be realistic or don't argue points.
