Building Tanky Riven is like building Tanky Tryndamere.

This is not a tank team. Tanky fighters and Singed are both dps. Not natural tanks.

Moakai is a tank. Bravo on that. Alistar is too.

Seriously? You say Ryze is a tank? Are you an idiot? Yes, he can be built tanky, but he's not a tank.



Dude, do you even know what a tank is? A tank is not someone who is hard to kill, no, that not a tank. A tank is someone who can initiate (eg. Alistar's Headbutt, Maokai's Twisted Advance, Rammus' Powerball), can disrupt the enemy team in a fight (Alistar's Pulverize, Leona's two stuns), and can take as much damage as possible before dying, martyrdom style, in a 1 to 5 exchange. THAT is what a tank is.

Beefy teams usually lack in either CC or raw damage output. Teams of bruisers generally lack the CC, and teams of tanks usually lack the damage.

Either setup will work great against people who don't understand how to counter such a setup (by either having a strong setup to protect their squishies, or having the squishies build a little tanky to negate the enemy team from squashing them via base damage on skills), but it'll fall flat against people who do.

A more obvious flaw is that tanky champs tend to be short ranged, which means you'll be extremely vulnerable to aoe while you pile on top of one target.
