Currently i can only remember Udyr and Shyvana as viable competitive picks in wich Bruisers w/o insta-gap closers concerns. I remember some time ago that some Nasus changes whoulda be to make it viable at jungle according to a patch preview yet he never was due the need to farm his Q. In his current state i can only think in a couple of matchups that he can face in the top without getting outclased even at same skill level in the players.

Yea man. Give some love to the puppy Riot

Disagree completely. These are small tweaks that should make him at least an option against maybe 50% of top lane champs, whereas he can really only be picked against maybe 15% of top lane champs currently.

Shyvanna has an MS buff and a gap closer ultimate. Udyr has a spammable MS increase/stun. Nasus has a non-damaging slow.

I think at some point I actually made a thread where I listed every single bruiser in the game and showed that Nasus is the most kitable. Not sure what I titled the thread though.

I disagree with the tenacity on his ult.

If we are trying to make him reach lategame more often, we shouldn't also make him less kite-able, which is one of the few ways to beat him if he ever does reach lategame

Perhaps to make his e usefull in teamfights it could steal armor from enemys and distribute it among the members of his team that are in SF.
just a thought

Hyfe, the reason why I play and love Nasus .

While I am low elo and therefore don't have a huge problem playing him well enough to keep up with the team, I do understand how he would fall off in higher elo ranges. The changes stated by Hyfe seem like a HUGE improvement to his play style.

+1

A long time ago I likened Nasus to Mike Tyson in a wheel chair. He's got insane potential, but who is going to sit there and get knocked out by someone in a wheel chair? When the game was first launched it wasn't so bad because other people were on his level... not every champion in the game could leap/dash/slice/moonwalk all over the map half a dozen times. Now practically everyone can, and Nasus just can't keep up. I would argue that Nasus is more susceptible to kiting than practically any other champion in the game.

I made a post saying this but i got completely shot down. See how the GD sheeps only listen to ppl with badges??
I would also like to add that Nasus needs a movespeed buff. He walks at almost the same speed as Veigar.
