Seriously compare their abilities, Gangplank is like Pantheon only instead of HSS he has a crappy conditional team buff:

Spearshot vs. Parrrley - Both pretty similar ranged physical nukes that scale off attack damage, unlike Pantheon though Gangplank revolves around this ability b/c he doesn't have another good ability like HSS. Spearshots can't crit but it takes 160% of your attack damage over Parrrley's 100%.

Aegis of Zeonia vs. Remove Scurvy - One stuns and deals damage, one removes stuns and heals, they're like mirrors of each other. Both are good.

Heartseeker Strike vs. Raise Morale - Here's where things get hilarious, instead of an AoE ability where Gangplank takes away 2/3rds of the enemy health, he has a team buff that requires an allied minion to be around. Even worse, it's one of those boring buffs that you don't really notice or use for any reason other than it's "good to have up".

Grand Skyfall vs. Cannon Barrage - Both are global AoE spells that deal damage and slow (see why I'm comparing these two champions yet?), except Gangplank doesn't teleport to the location and his is instant. Both have their advantages and disadvantages, but IMO Grand Skyfall is a little better.

As you can see these champions are pretty similar, only Gangplank has a mediocre conditional buff instead of a rapeface AoE burst damage ability. Thus I conclude: buff GP plz.

edit: okay to all you downvoters- next time you see a Gangplank on your team you have to say to yourself "Sweet we've got Gangplank, with Raise Morale we can't lose gg"

Pirate needs to be reworked and made so that he is more fun and takes more skill.

spear shot scale 160% of damage attack, gang is only 100%.

gang need a critbuild, but pantheon can go full damage, it's really the same. but gang ulti is better than pantheon ulti

Spear shot doesn't need to crit because it gets 160% damage from attack damage over Parrrley's 110%. And hey you didn't need to waste thousands of gold on crit items.

If you honestly think Great Skyfall is the better ulti then Cannon Barrage by any degree you're doing it wrong.

Cannot compare these two characters.
