I really thought that people were joking...

When they said Twitch was nerfed hard into his grave.

But they were serious. I tried playing Twitch again after not picking him up since November 2011, and from what I saw, he's even more useless than Eve before Stealth Rework and post nerf.

I've really been turned off from using Twitch for good. His Q is definitely useless compared to his prenerf. His W isn't as great and it makes it very hard to deal damage. His E has been nerfed pretty much to the point of not using it at all and he just doesn't seem to do that much damage anymore. The only thing I could say that is somewhat positive is that he can shoot more than 5 ult shots, but even then, the ult shots just add range rather than deal damage.

Is there a way to actually make a great Twitch build, or is putting "great" and "twitch" in the same sentence just a fantasy?

He's actually getting picked in tourneys now, and many people seem to do very well with him in ranked and draft games. I see him way more often than before his remake.

He has a gimmick. People are taking advantage of it.

He's still a shadow of his former self.

There's really no reason to pick Twitch over MF unless you're going for his gimmick.

One of them is being able to shoot towers with his ult without getting hit by it. You're basically free to backdoor whenever your ult is up.

Not really a gimmick, so much as an actually useful and unique playstyle. He's hella strong in the right hands. MF and Twitch are completely different, not sure why you would even bother to bring her up...

I'm glad we understand each other.

The same reason you even bother to argue.

Lol no. He's in a good place now. He's viable.

He's a late game hyper carry, when he gets items and ults in the proper positioning he melts teams. Or he can stealth and go around and assasinate the enemy ad carry before they can respond.

That being said, his early game is strong as well... With a decent support he can win most trades bot lane.

Stealth (attk speed buff/element of surprise) > have support iniate > throw poison casket to apply 2 stacks > auto attack 3 times > expunge > ignite > kill.

Not alot of other bot laners can exchange with this combo, u will come out on top most of the time.

Seems his rock didn't have connection to lol forums so he missed the drama couple of months ago.
