Picking Alistar in Ranked should be a Punishable Offense!

I'm only at the ~1400 mark, and when I play Alistar (when I can't pick a jungle tank, amumu, garen, or shen because the jungle is taken and I'm not so good at rammus) my team tends to win. He is pretty good.

I'm almost around 14XX~ right now and I have 60% win rate with Ali... It's not that he's a bad tank. You just have to realize his strength lies in initiating/zone controlling fights. If you play Alistar the same way you play Amumu or Galio, you'll end up losing.

I have to admit though, his roar needs a slight buff, and they need to rework his passive. Outside of those two, he's actually pretty balanced.

Alistar is secretly a boss.

I support this due to the needed security it provides the community. Also, wtf is up with Wits End?

Why the hell do people think a tank has to have some kind of aggro mechanic?

You ignore Alistar, you're going to pay. You don't outright ignore tanks, you find a way to get them OUT of the way to get to the carries.
