So, here's how to make Volibear less of... well cheese and more of a real champion.

someone hasnt learned how to play voli correctly, ive carried many many games with him. and have been called op a couple times.


Those darned Platinum players who have no clue what their talking about. I hate them all so much!

Volibear has no gap closer, and only his passive for innate tankiness and yet he is expected to tank (mainly due to one of his abilities scaling off HP). He is in a bad place at the moment and is kinda useless for the most part. Why take Voli when you could take Singed instead? Or Amumu? Or Galio? Or Shen?

Volibear's not a tank, he's not meant to absorb damage, he's meant to get inside the enemy team, do aoe damage, and execute someone. His passive just helps him to not get blown up instantly and lets him towerdive early-mid game. This makes him a bruiser. Shen, Alistar, Malphite are examples of tanks.


thats weird i play him pure tank and destroy the team pretty much :/

Because he's an armored bear.

Which champions would those be? Again I don't normally side with another person just because of rank, but Hashishin is not only platinum but is also a well respected blogger with a lot of experience in the game. Maybe you just aren't fighting very good opponents who think the bear is broken and don't know how to ignite?

How about they remove that roar on his ult.

Seriously as soon as you use it they walk away. And if you haven't closed the gap yet you lose like 2/3 or your ult time just doing that, and that's IF you manage to close it.

Volibear's just a bad character design all around. He came out as a joke and plays like one too.
