The last 10 games someone insta locks an AP mid champ and then procedes to do horribly cause AP mids have no place in TT having AP's go 3-17 have cost me and my friend 8 of our last 10 games how bad does someone have to go before they start to realize that AP's are bad in 3v3s

Saying "AP Mids are not viable in 3s" isn't entirely accurate.

Kat, Rumble, Morgana, and some others are extremely powerful picks on TT. A large part of winning the "pick war" of TT is understanding synergies between champions and trying to get champions that actually work together and not ones that are simply considered "OP."

Because people like to play as something besides Bruisers? Anyway I've seen lots of people do well as AP mids. Though it isn't recommended, no real harm can come out of doing it in normals. Though in ranked teams on the other hand...

People love it when players succeed at doing something that isn't part of the meta.

Edit: Damnit Riot person, why you beat me to the first post?

AP Mids are not viable in 3v3 because there is no mid. AP top or AP bot, maybe.

Though really, AP Carries seem to not do very well on this new TT.

Or being the one to pick Singed also works...

There is a difference between a bad pick and a bad player
APchamps can work quite well as long as they synergise with their team

example: Akali, Kat, Rumbe

i think the main thing about AP on TT is picking one with sustain

mana hungry AP champs get eaten alive in my experience

because they are. I got diamond with a record of 20-2 and my teammates played Zyra and Warwick while I played Twitch. WW gave us the initation to force the enemy to buy a QSS, Zyra gave us the damage and CC to give me some protection while I shot them down with my AOE ulti.
