Kassadin: The next best thing in LoL.


Understandably, you'll ask me why I'm making such a bold claim. It's simple really, with the incoming nerfs to the "tanky DPS" strategy that's been FotM lately, people will be encouraged to try out a new strategy. Now, our ranged carries (RIP Twitch) have been nerfed, a few choice supports have been nerfed, and now the beefy champions are getting nerfed. Which means that the next thing the playerbase till turn to will be burst damage.

The new strategy, in my prediction, will fall into buying enough time for your AP or AD caster to dish out enough damage to decimate the enemy team.

"But Goldy, there are a ton of champions that fulfill this role! Why the spotlight on Kassadin?"

Glad you asked, here's the top ten reasons why you should play Kassadin.

Quote:
1) He's a Void hero.
2) His ultimate, it's something every burst hero wants.
3) Terrific ratios; Kassadin is one of the only mages who can excel in the late game.
4) High Survivabilty: Again, comes from his ult. Staying alive to deal damage.
5) Snowballs easily.
6) His passive will be great against the magic-heavy harassment soon to come.
7) Has a silence, a perfect counter to mage-heavy teams.
8) Easy level 6 kills. The 'ol bait n' switch works every time.
9) Due to the impending removal of flash, his ultimate will fill that role.
10) Did I mention he's a Void hero?


Kassadin is going to have everything everyone will need and more with the downfall of Tanks and the rise of Mages. I suggest you start practicing early.

All three are going to become FotM very soon. Malz and Cho have sick bursts too.

Ya, if you think you have Lol's best kept secret, keep it that way. Bad things happen to your champ when that secret is released (look at udyr).

I'm honestly not worried, the thing about Kass is that he's quite balanced. He does his job, and then he can't do squat for ~7-8 seconds. In the coming strategy choice, he'll be doing a lot more though.

In fact, I'd be appalled if Riot ever buffs Kassadin, he's perfect the way he is.
