Why is Elise suddenly the most banned champ in the game?

I've known she was a beast for months, and now with the introduction of League of Warmogs she can really shine. Stacking health against her doesn't work, stacking magic resist against her doesn't work either because she stacks magic pen and it's a lot more cost efficient. As soon as she gets her core items your lane opponent can just pack up and go home.

In b4 'win rate means nothing' (it really doesn't, btw).

Serious answer: because she's pretty much an AP version of Yorick.


You mean jayce. Elise is nothing like yorick

Happyscrub's league of legends rank is higher than 95% gamefaqs posters. This is why gamefaqs jealous of him. That's why they troll him. So sad, So bad, so mad.

in the right hands, she's probably the best top

not everyone knows how to play her right (or well enough to totally dominate), but most people aren't willing to take that risk

She destroys bruisers and people rarely use the right type of champions against her. She comes undone against anyone with longer range then her or against champions with sustain. She loses her effectiveness if she can't safely poke you and her Q's mana cost is high so she has to make it's damage stick otherwise she'll go OOM trying to harass you.

I think one of the reasons her winrate isn't that high is because she's not an easy champion to use effectively and she requires good execution to maximise her abilities.

She has seven great abilities all rolled up into one champion.

Because she's ridiculously safe and has a tremendous advantage when it comes to the "stack tons of health" top meta because of her human Q, as well as being one of the best gankers and pushers in the game. She'd be strong in just about any meta, but this particular one is practically custom-made for her.

I would imagine that the reason is in higher elos where people are skilled enough to understand how to use her, she is always banned. In lower elos where she isn't banned, people don't know how to win with her so they don't have a positive win rate.

*thinking*

Yeah, you're right. I was thinking Yorick because they're both ridiculous lane bullies with few real counters.
