Honest question. Why bother even playing it? In a game with champs that are balanced around a 5v5 setting, certain champs are just outright broken when you place them in a 3v3 setting. You're literally pigeonholed into picking these champs or banning them in 3v3. It's pretty much a race to see which side can get the more broken champs, and whichever side does completely curb stomps the enemy. I don't understand how that could be even remotely fun to anyone, or why RioT even added this game mode. Sure, in 5v5 there are champs that are stronger than others, but there are no outright "god" champs that completely destroy everything. I mean hell, the opinion of what's OP in 5v5 even changes with ELO, it's completely stagnant in 3v3. 5v5 atleast has some semblance of strategy and counter picking.

So, answer my question, what is fun about 3v3? Other than being able to pick a broken champ and feed your e-peen by stomping ****.

IP farm, because jungle Yi will never lose a TT game, and you can farm both YG and Tri-Force in 20 minutes

I actually have a lot of fun playing 3's, and find that the balance isn't such that its unplayable. There are enough viable teams that bans take care of the huge problems and then it is just a matter of picking from the best of the rest (which is more than 6 deep).

If you like playing 3v3 champs, I guess.

It's fun, and the games are shorter?

Also, while it may not be as well balanced and 5's there is still PLENTY of room for player skill and no champ is so unbalanced you can't deal with them.


The much better question is why make this thread? If you don't like TT than don't play it. Oh, that's right, you probably just got stomped by 3 of these "OP" champs and can't take responsibility for your own failure.

Fun, something different, fewer players *can* mean fewer trolls, faster games, different setup, different viability of team setups.

But mostly for fun.

I enjoy 3v3 more so than 5v5.

Me and my friend duo queue jungle yi/AP taric.

We win most of our games..and its fun.


I wish riot would release a 2v2 map.

3v3 offers a faster paced game. 2 lanes means that any mia is probably waiting to gank you. It also forces you to learn effective ward use and team composition. Its also got the most unpredictability because 1 late game ace = gg if you've got a tank on your side.
