Checked Lolking today and Olaf is sitting at a 39% win rate, only second to Karma. He's picked in around 10% of games, so it's not like everyone just stopped playing him, though I can bet his play rate went way down after the nerfs, but, 39%? Really? That is, amazing. Isn't Karma the only champion to have a constant win rate in the 30%'s?


I just really wondered what happened. Was the passive armor pen really such a big deal? Or was it the slow on his Q?

What turned Olaf into the "**** they have Olaf gg" to "Olaf sucks."

New Olaf players think they're invincible even after the nerf and go 1v5 with 50% HP

olaf was never op to begin with in the hands of normal players. these were tournament based nerfs for the likes of voyboy and other top players. sure.....they dont pick him anymore and the "normal" olafs are not good enough to compensate.

Except, to be fair, Olaf is currently at a worse spot than Heimerdinger, and barely above Karma. Two champs who are in line for a rework. He's chilling with Rengar, Alistar and Gragas, all champs Riot nerfed pretty hard.

Olaf needs a team to follow him and support him. Does not work as well in solo que

Olaf never had a high solo queue win rate, even when he was basically god mode.

If he has proper team support and coordination with the jungler, he turns into a juggernaut. You typically don't get either in solo queue.

I guess, people are trying to play him, like he would be still OP. Sorry, can't do 1vs3 anymore.
