ARAM is unplayable currently, IMO

Tank items are really broken on Proving Grounds, and I'm not playing it until it gets addressed.

You can just roll down a lane without any trouble at all with enough regen and tankiness. There's no challenge to it. It's only a matter of time before everyone else figures it out. Warmogs is broken in normal games too, but now it's affecting what i love- ARAM.

Taking leave until it's fixed, RIP ARAM. You'll see soon enough in-case you haven't already.


If you don't know how to counter mass-hp, you should probably uninstall League of Legends entirely.

I don't understand why you guys are criticizing the OP. Its no secret that warmogs is utterly broken right now, and it makes sense that its good on ARAM as well. Giants belt is pretty ridiculous too, good thing it got nerfed.

I play a ton of ARAM, and I get warmogs on a lot of champs (did before the buffs, but now I buy it like hotcakes). Protip - warmogs doesn't give infinite sustain. About 10 hp per sec (50/5) when they first get it, and it'll top off at about 20/sec. If you keep harassing them they WILL go down, and no, you do not need lux, nid, xerath etc. to do that.

Kitae's is an utter trash item. So is BotRK if you actually calculated its efficiency. Sanguine blade, despite the fact that its difficult to remain at any good number of stacks, is far superior after the recent buff. Even disregarding their poor cost efficiency, very few champs can afford to screw up their build to accommodate these items. If for whatever reason you actually have a spare slot for another AD item, it almost certainly would be shiv/PD (the one you didn't buy), mallet, or scimitar. Or hurricanes if you're trolling.

[fullkit adc build is T3 boots, Sanguine, LW, IE, PD or Shiv and a defense slot. if you take either kitae's or BotRK you will either lose on damage amp by crits, armor pen, defense, lifesteal, or damage (since it doesn't scale with crits). unacceptable]

DFG is also total trash and will be finally usable after the upcoming buff.

Liandry's is a pretty broken item atm and I foresee nerfs. Very good against HP stacking.

I don't think tank items are too op. I just played a match where I was Cho'Gath and stacked health and magic resist like no tomorrow, but would die in 2 seconds anyway because their Sona+Kat would press R together. Kat's only magic pen item was Haunting Guise.

The only reason heath stacking exists in ARAM is because burst is so strong by comparison. Since health counters burst, and bust is the strongest thing in an ARAM, stacking health is prevailent.

Bork+BC+LW and you rape tanks. You will die to squishies with "normal" dmg items tho, but that's how rock-paper-scissors balance works.

Tanky teams are strong, but they still have hard time against pokers with good "anti-engage" skills, like Zyra, Janna, Lux. But "considered OP" Yi or Nid will most likely lose to bruisers, because they have 0 CC to stop them from engaging.
