Hey. I have started to play Kennen some again, and had forgot just how much I really love him. My real question is why do I never see anyone play him anymore top or mid?

Just wondering how you guys feel about it. If you feel some of the newer top/mid champs that have been introduced just outclass him by far too much, or what?

Any and all opinions/insight about Kennen is very welcome and much appreciated =D

To many options for solo top and mid champs. Kennen I think is fine mid or top; my opinion is that there are a lot of champs that out range Kennen and farm better early game. Kennen shtick revolves around getting that stun off, so juggling those charges is Key and missing that one skill shot generally means life or death for the yordle. So he is high risk early game. On top of that he is high risk late game as he has to dive in the middle of the action with his Ult. More popular AP carries can be saver (Oriana, Zyra, Anivia etc...).

Honestly I think its about FoTM... we will see a surge of Kennen players in a few months and cries of OP ult. But nothing is more satisfying than diving in, ulting, and watching HP melt. :)

I used to play a lot of AP Kennen. It was good fun. I branched out and played other things like AP Ezreal, Orianna, Lux, Katarina. I recently played Kennen again, wondering why I haven't played him in a long time. Despite building glass cannon, I never really felt all that powerful at something like 500-600 AP. The stuns are great for team fighting, but he FELT weak and somewhat unfulfilling. I didn't feel any feedback that made me really feel I was doing tons of damage.. especially building glass cannon. I don't think Kennen is weak or unviable... there are just way more "fun" champions.
