So why isn't kog played more

With the league of warmogs still going wild why isnt kog picked more?
sure he doesn't have the best escapes or mobility but if you build a team around him and fix your positioning he can carry a team like no other
so gfaq tell me why you guys think kog isnt picked more

he can only carry his team if his team can keep him safe
if his team can keep him safe then they probably don't need carrying

Kog is still picked in high level play....but he still has the same problem he always had.
you need to build your team around him and protect him

he takes a bit longer to really get rolling than other carries, and with no mobility it can be easy to abuse him

having the proper team comp and good positioning helps...but keep in mind that your opponents will not always be idiots, they will find ways to get to you (good luck keeping a vi from ulting you for example)...and when they get to you, unlike say a graves, EZ, cait, or Vayne, Kog cant really get away

your own team is only half of the equation

Why is Kog harder to keep safe more than, say, Cait or MF?

People like movement abilities. Cait Net allows her to get out of bad situations. Kog has nothing to save him / allow him to reposition.

MF has her speed boost, but even then she has a similar problem.

People like Doublelift don't like champions that don't have that type of movement. Like Grave's dash or Ez's arcane shift.

MF has her passive and a slow
Cait has her knockback/slow and her snare traps
Kog only has a slow, nothing else.

Because most solo queue games are won or lost by the 20 minute mark.
