Warwick and Nunu are fine surely?

Way to be vague.

Also, since I don't exactly know what this thread is about I'm just going to go and say that Warwick is

-Balanced
-Powerful
-Has a role

So I don't know why he isn't viable.

All Warwick can do is kill low health characters, and initiate. Unfortunately, his ultimate is very easy to shut down, and without it Warwick is extremely weak.

Obviously you don't play him correctly.

Early - Mid he can shut down almost any other champion with his ultimate if he properly jungle'd for the first 7 minutes.

Late game he has a global buff which increases his teammate's efficiency and carry potential. As well as an ultimate which can help disable support or another carry.

He's really powerful and I use him all the time.

Also, Nunu is pretty strong as well.

Difference in play style I suppose. I've seen good Wicks who don't jungle or use ult to kill, and they're total beasts who play on the deceptive nature of visible advantages.

What about Nunu? He shouldn't be in the same league with Wick... he has good lane presence.

The problem with these lists is it all depends on how your team is built. A good cho'gath is fantastic. He doesn't die, can actually push creeps really well, AOE stun and silence.

Twitch is annoying as hell in the first 20 min played correctly. Worlds best ganker. Late game he can hold his own with yi on tower pushes.

Kassadin: Great chaser and hard as hell to chase to kill, Aoe slow, silence nuke

sivir, great early game harass, might be the best lane pusher

I think Singed would go into the Viable section just for the fact of how good of a team player he is.

Also unfortunately I'm going to have to agree with the Warwick comment, his ult isn't particularly powerful, his runspeed buff isn't that useful, and his abilities just aren't up to par.

Yeah... Warwick is a chaser, but without a particularly good chasing ability. His ult is effective, but narrow. He can jungle, but when people have level 30 accounts a huge number of champions can jungle nearly as well as he can while not being screwed over in other ways...

Incidentally: I'm a great Chogath and i'd kind of like to argue he's in "most viable", but when it comes down to it he doesn't have the tools the other tanks do. He's situationally strong, though.
