So he sits safely in lane to end up buying a black cleaver then a bunch of tank items. He now is a tank with too much damage. Look at his kit. Q: a silence with movement speed and a debuff remover and bonus damage that can crit. four awesome things built in one move. W: passive resistances, then takes practically no damage when active. E: spins for tons of damage. R: practically a non-true damage version of darius' ult. The combination of his ability to ignore crowd control, to get to you carries, survive forever in fights, deal TONS OF DAMAGE, and have an easy laneing phase to do what you please with it. There are some champs that can do well against garen in lane but in the end garen will get too tanky to deal with. Personally i feel his W needs a slight adjustment so he isn't so tanky throught the whole game. His Q does too many things for a single move. His passive needs a slight adjustment as well considering his ridiculous regen. Any other thoughts/opinion on this topic?

TBH, Garen is a bit tougher to counter IMO than others I've played against. Really, the way to beat him is to keep his passive off and just burst him down. Forcing him to go back and lose exp/gold is the start. Killing him is always a plus. If the lane is just stalemated, outfarm him. He gets no kills/advantage, he won't do much later on outside of execute someone.

I do not agree with the OP or anyone coming to cry for nerfs to garen, but i understand your pain because i dismantle people all the time with him and im sure they are butt hurt to the core. What i do know is that i can kick the **** out of any garen anytime. its called Yorick, Jayce, Teemo, GP, Kayle, Nidalee.

I think the nerf on him was justified, it just weakened the large boost to armor/mr he gets early game; it really was a bit much combined with his health sustain and lack of mana, making him just a little too immovable in lane considering how well he can also harass.

He shouldn't be hurt too much by it late game (and I don't think he's overpowered late by any means unless he gets very fed), but you should be able to deal with him better now, as I think now his laning and chance to get fed early is more on the level of other tanky top champs.

Seeing as Garen was just nerfed and no longer gets ANY armor or magic resistance per level. You can shut up now.

Garen is fine as of now. He can be easily countered. If you bring exhaust you can easily escape him. Its honestly not all that hard...
