why do people still buy hecarim and malphite and blitzcrank and amumu?

#1thedarklordx3Posted 5/7/2013 7:16:57 PM
I bought malphite last week

I haven't played him once because every time I try he gets banned

like... literally every single time

basically I have to go back to blind normals if I ever want to play him

and it's the same reason that I haven't bought amumu

They only get banned in lower divisions.

Hecarim is god-awful. Worst champion in the game. If you play him, you should uninstall.

(I want my freelo machine back ;_;)

Also, Hecarim is a game-changing carry tank. I've won twice as much as I've lost with him (literally) for a reason.

Never give up.
Never surrender.

does being diamond suddenly mean that amumu/malphite/blitzcrank/shen won't auto-win the game if you get them and know what you're doing?

doesn't he have like a mega high banrate? wouldn't that mean you've probably played him like 5 times in 80 games?

People still buy Twisted Fate, and his ban rate is like 60%.

i assume people ban shen/blitz/malph/mumu is because people in bronze and silver are too stupid to play them effectively and are usually the first ones to say "HEY X CHAMP ISN'T BANNED PICK THEM FREE WIN"

then someone who doesn't play them picks the champ and fails miserably

yeah...

it's sort of like why I hate the concept of counterpicking

it's always seemed pointless to pick kassadin vs. a leblanc main unless you're actually good with kass

you won't beat a leblanc with 250 games played and like 200 won on your third time using kassadin

same concept, amumu is banned always because dat Q and dat ult when USED PROPERLY change the game

You answered your question pretty much. There are people that play blind normals. Also ARAM.
