So is 9 pots/2 wards now the core start for top laners?

Hopefully it will make people realize that top isn't the hyper gosu skill lane they think it is and realize it's just a boring lane where you farm up your tank items/warmogs (like it always has been at high levels) at all levels of play now.

This is interesting because if the opposing top laner chooses a champion that can very safely farm top lane without being aggressive or can win strong trades (especially due to early item advantage... no stats on Mr.9 Pots) then this tactic will fail miserably and put the person far behind. It only counters jungler but everyone knows if top gets ahead enough then they can tower dive you repeatedly after a point depending on the laner/jungler.

25 MS doesnt really mean as much as a ton of sustain and vision. And if the enemy top laner starts 9 pots and 2 wards and you dont. you are in for a bad time.
