I bought Irelia way back when she was blatantly overpowered. This was back when she could ult a creep wave and heal to full, and the ult CD was ridiculously low. I bought her knowing she was good, but I could never really do well. I didn't understand her playstyle, idk, the ups and downs and aggression vs. passivity didn't click with me.
It took me a long time to really understand how to play with her kit for some reason, which doesn't make sense to me anymore because her kit is relatively simple.
Riven was another champ I had similar problems with. I waited off for a long time before buying her, but people finally realized how strong she was (think back when Riven peaked in popularity.)

I suck with Mundo. Whenever I play against one, he somehow farms both jungles while ganking for a kill or two and by midgame is unkillable. When I play Mundo, I pretty much **** myself on my first clear with how low I get and never get so godlike.
Jax is one that I sucked with no matter how hard I tried. Just picked him up again though and have been steamrolling when I play him. Just a matter of learning how to trade and use counterstrike better.
I necro this topic because I remembered another one. Janna. F*** Janna. I always shield too late, and tornados never do as much as a want them to. Ultra are always just a second of delaying the inevitable, weather than enemy Janna ults that ruin my day.
I mean, I understand that she is probably one of the harder supports to get used to, but I just have no intention of putting in that time. But I have friends that HAVE just *clicked* with her and do amazing things in game. Always makes me jealous.
Janna is so easy though. Unless you're not smartcasting, you should almost always be able to land your shield before something hits (ie Leona right when she throws Zenith Blade, Taric's stun, when a Vayne or Grave dashes in, etc). I just use the ult to screw with everyone's positioning to reset a fight.

I kind of feel that way with Irelia right now. I always do really well in laning, and her kit makes perfect sense to me as far as 1v1 or even 1v2dueling goes. But as soon as tteam fights start, I'm practically useless. I'd much rather have Jax in my hands at that point.
