Everyone knows that Blue doesn't match up anywhere close to a standard build in terms of DPS.

GD is stupid, but they aren't that stupid.

You bring that a PD will make you more mobile, but when slowed, it's more effective the higher your move speed given percentages. The reason blue ezreal outshines normal ezreal is simply because of the CDR+Q, everything you argue goes back to that point. You aren't wasting money on crit items, and you're a hell of a lot safer because able to poke with Q instead of having to get in range to auto attack while Xin/Akali/Zed/Kha instagib you.
Ezreal's AA range is too low?

It's longer than both Graves' and Quinn's AA ranges. He's onpar with Twitch, Vayne, Corki, Draven, and Trist at level 1. I don't know where you get your "His range is too short" idea from.

Most of the people in Gold apparently think otherwise. I can only imagine how bad it is in Silver. (I'm not sure if this build is even used in Bronze. Heh.)

If you want the blue Ezreal playstyle, try Urgot, who is actually meant for it.

Blue-Build has a higher winrate than any other Ezreal build.

That being said, Ezreal should only be building blue if the team has another reliable source of damage, because you are giving up damage for utility.

Graves and Quinn come with a hell of a lot more damage.

I thought it was pretty common knowledge that blue ez had lower dps than standard build ez? He sacrifices damage for higher CDR (and therefore better poke because he can spam more) and vastly superior kiting abilities.

The only reason for this is because blue ezreal defies what most people would call a "conventional" teamfight. The idea of most teamfights is to kill the 2 carries. AP and AD, right?

The thing about Blue Ezreal is you can't kill him and as such waste a lot of your potential DPS chasing him. Instead just destroy his team and he'll become pretty much useless. It only has a high winrate because people aren't compensating his ****ty DPS into the mix, and are still chasing after an ungodly kiter.

kiting and poking is not about damage. if everything was about damage draven would be the only adc played.

That's why Quinn was considered UP until the buffs, right?
