Compare that to Amumu that doesn't need an easy way in, and that's why he's banned.

I use this to incredible effect quite often, it's absolutely devastating.

"HAH! What's Thresh doing with his lantern?"

"OH GOD!"

OP asks an honest question. Gets downvotes. Never change GD.

Thus, RNG.

Because all those champs needs to be quite farmed to even survive or be useful, while Amumu and Malphite are always a force to be reckonned with while having far less money.

On top of that, Annie and Carrio can be quite easily countered in lane and put back, Galio is a hit or miss, either you do good, or you are useless (and with AD casters in mid currently he suffers greatly), and Leona has counters in lane, meaning she can be manageable.

Malphite/Amumu on the other side have few counters, kits packed with utility/cc (no it's not JUST their AoE cc, it's that ADDED to their insane kit), which makes them naturally tanky and resilient with low items, good damage and scaling with defensive items (defensive ap for Amu, defensive AP/Tank items for Malphite).

On top of that, Malphite is the bane of the AD carries, between his tankyness, slow/ms steal AND MS debuff, it's a nightmare, while Amumu deal insane AoE damage (specially in a health stacking meta) even if hard cc'ed.

Annie: Has to flash into range, is very squishy, can't jungle.

Cass: Hard to get a good stun off, has to get very close, is very squishy, probably can't jungle (I haven't tried it).

Leona: Her hard AoE CC is very small in area and she gets harassed if she tries to go top or jungle, so she never gets enough farm to become unkillable.

Galio: Has to flash into the middle of the enemy team, is extremely mana hungy, self-stuns while ult is up, Udyr and Blitz hard-counter his ult, can't jungle

GD don't leave this thread yet, I have questions that must be answered. What is this business about thresh gap closing with his lantern? Is there still a thresh mechanic I still don't know about? I only just recently realized it collects souls for you at a distance. You can't click on your own lantern to fly to it or something can you?

RNG is different from a bugged skill.

RNG stands for random number generator.

No random number generates during Cassiopeia's ult.

Do you even know what you're talking about? Don't throw misleading terms around.
