Conclusion to Poppy: She's the only champ who deals the 'burst' damage in game

Since Veigar got nerfed.

Some people thinks Poppy is not viable in competitive/high level play... but she is.


Her laning is completely up to her lanemate and enemy laners. Poor farming? L2 Last hit and use abilties. Yes, she got no AoE skills, but that doesn't mean she's poor farmer, but poor pusher/anti-pusher.

Let's say you have Alistar/Sion/Taric or whatever stunner. Free farming/hero kill guaranteed. At least free farming is granted.

But if you have a lanemate of poor combination(For instance, Janna+Pantheon rocks, but Jannah+Poppy doesn't) or of just poor laning ability, it gets not easy.


Anyway, after all, you'll get DFG+Merc+anything around 15 min. And you teammates didn't get owned too much, now it's her time to dominate in teamfights.

Her ganking ability is not bad since she can tower-dive. Tho I prefer farming till DFG than roaming around. It depends on each aspect of a game, acutally.


Her ultimate increases Ignite and DFG by 20/30/40%.

When a teamfight starts, poppy ghost or flash(I prefer ghost) in and use ulti on enemy carry(i.e. twitch) or sometimes key-hero(which might be their tank), and DFG+charge+deva+ignite. And the damage is amplified by 20/30/40%.

Unless there's Soraka, the target is pretty much dead. now what? It's 4v5, and they lost their carry in 2~3 seconds.

It's Poppy's role. 'Deleting' enemy key-champ in 2 seconds.

So in this case, we can say Poppy is pretty much a carry, and also a enemy-carry-counter.


So, overall, her laning phase is quite situational, ganking abilty is good, and she's great in teamfights. So, she's one of decent champs, not top-tier, but viable.


But when it comes to t3h BURST DAMAGE which Riot devs hate, she's doing insane 'burst' dmg.

Ult+DFG literally divides the target's HP by 2. and upcoming charge+deva+ignite makes him/her dead or almost dead.

And as we look on Veigar, whose ult got nerfed because of its 'BURST' damage, it makes me worry that Riot could nerf Poppy.


Anyway, I'll be happy even if they nerf her burst damage, in case if they FIX THE GOD **** CHARGE BUGS.

Eh, I didn't.

Anyway, Pan is one of top laner/ganker, but he still relies on early ganks.

And the roles of Poppy's and Pan's are different. I mean, they're different champs.

Hmm, yeah, bad trolling with no humour.

But it comes to mind that you didn't understand what I wrote. DFG poppy is quite viable build, even in high level play. And I play DFG poppy everytime I play her.
