Seeing as how Nasus needs to farm for 20 minutes to be effective, and most Dominion games will be over before that and there's almost no creep farming at all, will anything be done with him to make him effective? Maybe finally REMOVING his reliance on farming forever? Please?

Wither will still be amazing for slowing their attack speed and movespeed. Sipirt fire will be great to get right of armor. And his ult will still deal the same amount of damage. He will be fine.

Yes, because Nasus is totally fine in SR if you deny him last hits with his Q all game.

That's because its a completely different thing. In SR his played as more of a tanky/dps character. In Dominion he will probably be played as more a support tank. If you can't adapt to the new game then play a different character.

You also have to account for the other characters not having as much farm as they do in SR. The reason why he falls of if he's not farmed is because the other champions get farm and build armor and health to nullify Nasus. They wont have that chance in Dominion.

What are you on? Other champions get their farm through gold. Everyone on Dominion starts with 1300 gold and you get plenty through a constant stream of kills. Nasus requires gold and last hits with his Q. What don't you understand about saying "Nasus won't get his Q damage up and will be terrible compared to other tanky DPS"?

What part of "will be more support tank, than tanky dps" don't you understand? Yes he will not get last hits. BUT that just means you can't play him the same way that you do on SR. wither is still a super slow to AS and MS. Spirit Fire will still reduce armor. And his ult will still do the same damage. You can play him more than one way.

He probably won't be bad, but I'm not sure why I would pick him over a more useful tank.

Or... He is actually quite viable as a pure DPS champ, ignoring the whole "farm q and build tank" thing. His passive life steal makes building a black cleaver, infinity edge, and phantom dancer quite a viable build. Just because he can work by abusing his q in games that last a long time doesn't mean that is the only way he can work.

How about the balancing tactic of "Don't be a dumbass while building your Nasus." He won't be built the same way, but nasus will still be viable. If you watch the stream there have been several successful viegar and nasus in the game.

Was no one else watching the dominion stream when he was picked? He did more than fine
