Would LOVE to have one of those "Let's Talk About Gangplank" Threads Started... please ask somebody to do this ASAP.

This. Also some form of scaling on his passive/improved late-game power on his Q/some form of AD ratio on his Ultimate/E Rework.

3) Gangplank's ultimate is the most random ultimate in the game. A person can be in the ultimate for full duration and take no damage.

4) Gangplank's oranges are no match for knock-ups. Too bad all of the new champions have them.

5) Gangplank's health regen is the second lowest in the game tied with Sivir. To give a comparison, Darius gets a full 4 hp/5 sec more than Gangplank at level 1 and gets more per level than GP does.

6) Gangplank gets less scaling hit points than Vayne. Not even joking. To give a comparison, Darius gets 12 extra hit points per level than Gangplank does.

7) The three top laners with the lowest win percentage are Zed, Garen, and Gangplank. Zed's is trending upwards and should pass Garen and GP any day now. What do Garen and Gangplank have in common? They are the only two bruisers who don't have a true gap closer. At least Garen's run speed steroid doesn't stun him for 0.25 sec.

How do you build him?

My first penta ever was all glass full crit plank, was awesome. 1 by 1 into the meat grinder XD.


But lately i have been building him with a wit's end and statik shiv, then i usually fill up with some tanky items (mallet, randuins, sunfire, guardian angel)

Straight. Up. Critplank.

Defensive boots. Stattik, IE, TF, LW, Defensive item.

Or you could do the triple cleanse.

Cleanse, oranges and QSS just to be a troll.

Will 2014 be the year the GP Awareness Campaign takes off? No. But it's k.
Opinions have started:

Well, my question was directed at Erygos directly. I read a lot of these ideas, though I don't agree with a major change of him. He's not in an incredibly weak spot. I feel he's more in an awkward one.

And Opinions have ended.

I have nothing to contribute. I also do not have any information on it, so posting on it would be a huge disappointment.

Like I said, I personally don't want to see a shift in his kit. The first thread has an interesting sort of change when switching his E and Passive though.

As fair as Quinn and Lucian are concerned, I don't play either very much. I don't feel I can give feedback on those guys.

Hi Eliv, okay so I didn't know you were directing that at me personally... so I was just forwarding others' ideas in an attempt to spread awareness. For the record, I agree no significant kit-alterations/rework should be done, so my personal opinions:

Passive - some form of scaling into late-game would be nice (whether via AD/AP/level)
Q - perfect as-is
W - reduced base-healing, increased healing-amount IF successfully cleanses a form of CC (less free sustain, more skill-based)
E - needs to not cause you to stutter; needs reworking IMHO (some people think swapping E into Passive & Passive into E with obvious changes required would be great, I tend to agree)
R - too luck-based/randomized, feels punishing on this fact alone; could use some form of AD-Scaling (also I'd be okay if it were no longer 'completely' global in exchange for improved scaling/reliability; I think when GP is in the top-left corner & can ruin a 2v2 lane-trade in the bottom-right corner)

What do you think? I think we'd all LOVE a "let's talk about Gangplank" thread.

Also, I opened a thread directed at you, I would appreciate your assistance:

I dislike trinity force on Gangplank a lot, I see few reasons to get it unless you're ahead quite a bit, even then I don't build it, I build other items

I don't play Gangplank a lot but Ravenous Hydra is extremely good on him
