One thing about his ult is you have to know when to use it. You can bait out their gap closer or wait until the flash is down. You can't just run in and ult a random target. It requires using your brain. But I am aware of his lacking damage, so I build him cleaver early game and mallet and warmogs later on. Mid game I usually get an aura for the team so he's more of a utility tank, not someone for just dealing damage.

Yes^ and I think because of his actual REAL lack luster utiilty, riot isn't really giving him anything. Also that winrate means nothing.

He's being picked a lot in the recent tournament. Not over the top a lot like "roit nurf noaw" but enough that you should respect him as a champ and what he brings to the table.

I get the feeling that most of the people who whine about j4's ult don't play the champ or maybe played him once and don't understand how to use his abilities properly.

I guess his shield could use a bit more, but I kind of like it as the no point wonder as it is. If they made his shield useful they'd probably have to take things away from other parts of his kit which is no fun for the jarman.

Though as for the OP I doubt he'll really be fotm. For a 2 button champ he's kind of hard to use. He also doesn't do well in blind pick games where all of a sudden you're matched against a nidalee, a vayne, an elise, kass, shaco, etc. FOTM champs tend to be spammed becuase they are good in a lot of situations. He'll gain some popularity no doubt but never to the point where you see him every single game. He should be almost exclusive to draft pick where you can see what you're up against, imo anyway.

He'll be Flavor of the Week, followed by about 100,000,000 threads about his ult for the rest of the month.

In retrospect, jarvan cannot carry a game whatsoever. It more relies on when you can ultimate, and when to initiate and if your team fallows up. Hes nothing else after he does a popup, just auto attacks and a mediocre slow/shield. HIs passive is covered by an item, called blade of the ruined king. Which I hear is having trouble still countering warmogs and ppl buying a lot of health. Maybe if you have ult on cd, with enough attack damage because it scales good, you may have something else to do while waiting for your combo, aka one spell.
I've seen crazy Jarvans that can 1v3 and carry games T.T
