So i got into an argument. Is bot lane Nasus considered a tank?

Avari Cravin: didnt look like we had a tank
Avari Cravin: them either
_____-: nas isnt tank?
Avari Cravin: no
_____: ...serious broh
Avari Cravin: hes a fighter
_____: looks ****in tank to me
Avari Cravin: no disrupts makes him not a tank
_____: since we had mostly ad
_____: his disrupt is criple
Avari Cravin: man hes tough but not a tank
_____: he total tank

nasus's items consisted of: (he was laning against wukong over our cassiopia and kayle)
Tri-force
Ninja Tabi
Prospector blade
Giant Belt
Thornmail
The Lightbringer

I personally dont think hes a viable tank because he cant protect his squishy's and he needs farm to work at all. dominion is completely different from summoners rift so opinions are always welcome.

totally forgot. he was bot lane. instant dequalifier for tank in my opinion.

He can build tanky, but I wouldn't consider him an actual tank.

If he's dedicated bot lane, it doesn't really matter one way or the other.

Nasus just needs a TF and build tanky otherwise
Depends if you consider a toon getting a 4k offensive item a "tank" or not.

He's definitely a tanky derp, dunno about being a full out tank, there's better options.

He's more DPS than tank. In SR he's considered an "off-tank" but can't really do much tanking past the initiation.

Just because someone builds tanky does not make them a tank. If Nasus builds pure tank he's really not a threat at all. A real tank is.

Nasus is DPS; not a tank. He has no initiate, and no damage-mitigating ability.

A tank in LoL is someone who can initiate a team fight and continue to be a serious threat without much in the way of damage items. Nasus has no initiation, and on Dominion will provide no threat if build full tank. He can get away with it a little more on SR because he can farm Q up to silly amounts of damage, but it comes at the expense of him being useless for the first half of the game. He is not a true tank in either game mode.

nasus has great initiation! when nasus wants to start a team fight, he turns on his ****ing badass ult with a fearsome roar and ... uh... walks... towards ... you...
