So is all this Irelia fuss really because of HotShotQQ?

She's not OP she's viable.

"Viable" is stronger than your average "balanced" but still below the OP line.

Viable champions are fewer in numbers compared to just balanced champions so they often give the impression of being OP.

The thing is ideally speaking all champions should be viable so Irelia is exactly where she should be. If you look closely at the threads most of them are actually screaming they shouldn't nerf Irelia and those that ARE crying for a nerf are often met with downvotes and counterarguments.

I also feel the need to point out she's generally stronger in soloQ but still not that popular in high elo arranged matches.


How is this any different from Morde? He was terribad back then and they still nerfed his ass to the ground.

QQ of one high ELO player who can't break 50% with Irelia
Nor can said high ELO player break 50% in games against Irelia

TLDR the high ELO player in question in fact doesn't understand Irelia

Or is there some substance?

Two weeks ago Irelia began being considered "OK".


Before that she was considered dodge worthy.



Is she beginning to be appreciated for her actual ability, or is HotShotQQ solely responsible for all of this nonsense?


I ask because I am ****ing terribad with Irelia.


In the same boat man. I don't get it.

lolwait,


Hotshot...QQ.

Hotshot said something that was very obvious is all. Irelia has been good for months.

People don't seem to understand that she suffers from Twitch synderome: too many good things on one champ. She has high base stats, imune to cc (mostly), true damage, a gap closer, AND a ranged ult, etc. Too lazy to elaborate further.
That's why she's better than other champs (read BETTER THAN, not OP).

Gratz, you're either really smart, or really dumb.

Really smart implies you've been playing Irelia for well over 2 weeks.
Really dumb implies you're just another HSQQ sheep.

then she´s OP .-.

OP doesn´t means "OMG INSTANT WIN FACEROLL! it means just what you said, stronger than the average...

I don´t think there´s an "instant win" champion, and if Irelia is OP, it´s not for a big thing, just maybe a little stronger than similar champions, that´s all.

No he's not, she has been used for some time now on the EU server at mid/high elo, very effectively
