Sick of seeing all these threads debating it, just vote on it instead of making topics that are nearly alike.

Balanced, has many weaknesses

The first weakness of Tryndamere is that he is melee. Now , this may seem like a small matter but being melee in LoL means a couple of things.

1) Flash. This is the singlest reason that melee heroes are considered UP as a concept. If u cant jump over walls , or use flash profitably ,other champions with flash will just escape you. This single yellow menace has caused a great powercreeping to melee heroes thats unimaginable. However Tryndamere has a skill that jumps over walls. BUT this one skill is his gapcloser also.

Irelia has her Q , Yi has his Q , Nasus has a super slow, Akali has her ulti , and Tryndamere has his spinning slash. So whats the problem with that? THE RANGE IS SO SMALL and the damage so isnignificant (Q is leveled up before E ) that Tryndamere has to apply EXTRA damage. Irelias Q is almost instant and is followed by E which deals damage and applies solid slow or stun, Q of Yi is one of his basic skills , applying up to 300 dmg, Akali applies damage and has super Low CD and Nasus makes you crawl . Literally.

You actually consumed one of your abiliities to just close the distance WITHOUT APPLYING DAMAGE OR SLOW OR STUN. Keep that in mind.

2) There are CC spells for every hero available able to counter melee heroes. The big one is Exhaust. You see, exhaust is very hard to apply to ranged hero due to their range of course. You actually have to be near the hero to apply Exhaust. And the other one problem is that Exhaust is so good right now that is the number 2 spell besides Flash. Many of you think that Ignite is the spell to get over Exhaust. Wrong. Ignite is mostly situational. Its not even a counter to Tryndamere after his ulti . Healing 150 to 300 hp doesnt even matter. After your ulti you are either Dead or Escaping. A single HP would be enough. But what you are doing during your ulti is what matters.

3) Abilities of Tryndamere DONT APPLY DAMAGE. His W is a situational slow that does nothing against spellcasters and Q is applied on autoattacks. Tryndamere has his autoattacks only as a way to deal damage. THIS IS THE REASON WHY TANKY TRYNDAMERE IS NOT VIABLE. A tanky Olaf is perfectly fine . His E and Q provide him all the damage he needs. In this game we are playing , Damage items , specially AD are very expensive compared to their armor counterparts. A sunfire cape costs less than a Phantom Dancer. A frozen heart is cheaper than Bloodthirster. Randuin Omen cheap as a Black Cleaver.

So Tryndamere needs farm . More farm than anyone . SO he should just stay top and farm all game. Well, that could be a solution , as it is for Jax, however he is impossible to apply pressure to a strong laner. You cant solo top if your early game is weak. When your sustain is based on autoattacks , thats a nonbo (opposite of combo) . You have to destroy your laning phase in order to sustain your self. And while other champions get regenaration items and tanky ones , you have to get Damage.

So lets use him in jungle . Have you tried Tryndamere in jungle? Slow and unreliable , low sustain till level 4-5 , impossible to make gangs that matter before getting Red and the damage is so low before 6 , when u can actually towerdive with red of course, that makes you wonder what the hell you are doing. Again, his major flaw in gangs while jungling, is that HIS GAPCLOSING ABILITY DEALS NO DAMAGE and his CC is UNRELIABLE.


Now you cry about Tryndamere cannot die for 5 secs and can kill you fast with 3 hits at late game. Well he is a super late carry, this is what he does best. If he had the early game of Urgot, the Mid game of Brand and late game of Tryndamere he would be called Lee Sin.

But when your CC is down you cant counter him? Well newsflash for you boys. When your CC are down , Id love to have Yi with the same items in my team. You would experience forhand what DPS means and with enough mana, none of you could even escape this bad boy.

Long story short, Tryndamere is hardly picked or banned in high Elo games, is considered bad jungler, bad laner, need A LOT of farm , farm that other champions miss (AD ranged carry) , he is TROLL PICK in TOURNAMENTS and there is not a single 1400+ Elo player in these forums that will tell you otherwise.

In fact, if you plan to post here saying that Tryndamere is OP , PLEASE POST YOUR ELO. If you think that is too racist, post your number of games.


Also about 3v3. Twisted Treeline CANNOT BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT WHEN TALKING ABOUT BALANCING A HERO. Its like talking about Dominion balance. DONT BRING 3v3 TO THE TABLE.

I don't care. If he's in the map at all I'd rather not play that match. He's annoying, even in your team.
