Swain, Veigar, and Gangplank.

I'd even go so far as to say that Tank Swain, or at least a tank/AP hybrid, is a downright viable build for more competitive play.

Yeah, I guess it can be fun to play a squishy carry as Tank (I did that with MF) till the enemy team realizes you do no dmg and ignores you. Well Atma's can help. Anyway I do think a proper tank needs CC.


I believe he had 2 warmogs and an atma's. Don't remember if he got anything else. I think the CC of tank Ezreal is the other team saying "oh, it's just Ezreal, he dies fast" and trying to focus him, failing and then dying to his teammates.

It's kind of like how Teemo's taunt is his existence in a game

Tank Yi is pretty awesome. Just get people to attack you and then meditate.

I will get MAJOR hate for this. However, the only way I can do well with Gangplank is being Tankplank. He dies way too much if I do crits. Even so, I can get FM and Atma's, and still have good damage/crits, while being very survivable due to my heal.

That's AP Yi isn't it? Still funny as all hell unless they can disrupt it :/
