Did I just get lucky?
I only play SR once in a while, for a change of pace, and I decided to play a game AND try full AD on Jax, which I had never done before. I didn't expect much. I don't even have a rune page for it, I just used my hybrid full offense page with AD/lvl and AP/lvl in blues.

Thing is, I did stupidly well, lots of 1v2 double kills and I went 27-5-7 and they surrendered right after I got two double kills in a row. I wasn't noticeably fed during the laning phase, think I was 3-1-1.

I don't know if this was a fluke, or if I should repeat the build in the future.

I started Vamp Scepter for some sustain that would build into something useful... figured I'd just play defensive... went bot lane with an Ashe against Irelia and Vayne... I did ok laning but nothing special, I ended up going for high mobility + life steal at the start, building into berserker boots, and two Phantom Dancers. I was at something like 475 base movement speed, which seemed just stupidly helpful for choosing my fights and sticking to runners, not to mention the damage output was great and I was life stealing wonderfully. I then built my scepter into a bloodthirster for more vamp and some AD, and I was building an IE as the game ended.

The other team rounded out with Twitch, Master Yi, and a tanky Garen.

Decent build or utter stupidity that only worked because the enemy team was terrible?

Jax is a pretty easy champ to play and is only easier built full ad. Looks like you had alot of auto attack champs on the other team which makes jax even better because of his aoe stun and dodge.

Jax is an easy champ to play in normals because you cant counter in blind pick. I think it was a mix of bad team and no real jax counters. It will probably work out for you alot but dont expect it in ranked ques. You will be counter picked.

Yeah... it has less burst, less health, less utility than my standard Triforce>AD build... although the life steal right from the start and all that movement speed is just stupid for lane sustain.
