Implying they actually got it right with Ryze and Rengar at some point.

Anyways, Skarner is still better than Volibear, at he's got that going for him. :^)


That's such a sad metric goddamn.

New runes dont do him any favors either :(

Yeah I'm pretty sure Voli has been sitting in the corner crying for buffs for a loooong time. Especially now that every champion and their mother has slows, stuns, dashes and blinks.

They nerfed his attack speed back in S6 because he was out performing lee-sin in the jungle for like a week. He never received any compensation buffs, so now he has even more mediocre jungle clears and hilariously easy to kite gap closing.

That being said, unlike Skarner, Voli hasn't had a failed rework......yet.

It is sad. Considering how f***ing awesome real life Scorpions are, you'd think they would have enough ideas to borrow from the characteristics of the real animal to use in his kit sort of like what they did with Elise.

Reported for virus.

Anyway, Skarner is just fine if your elo is so low that people don't buy QSS.

Skarner main here. The problem with Skarner is that he doesn't have a strategic niche.

You pick Amumu for the teamfight wombo-combos. You pick Lee Sin or Elise for the early ganks and snowballing.

Skarner though, is a jack-of-all trades. The problem is that he is outshined by similiar generalist junglers like WW, J4 etc. They do what he does, but better
Is he a man or a machine? Kayno187 is the name

He's a juggernaut that with his rework was intended to have the niche of objective control/jungle control. Then he was too strong and they nerfed him, now he's just eh in that particular niche as well. I like that they tried to actually give him a niche, I just don't like the minigame execution of it.

Volibear is pretty much neglected too.
