The reason is because he can't do much about those five guys killing your team.

Sure you won't die but your teammates are all falling while you toss your little cleaver.

Tanks need to have a hard CC skill/a means of initiation. Mundo only has his cleaver as a slow, and no other means to take the pressure off your hard carries.

That is why he is not a tank. Tanks need CC and initiation, that in my opinion, is why Mundo is not a tank.

Tanks need to keep their carries alive. CC does this because if the enemy team can't reach them, they can't die. Defensive buffs do this because it keeps them alive longer. All-around disruption does this because then the enemy team can't simply walk past them.

Survivability is important in order to survive initiations and frontal skillshots, but with the tank, it's not about yourself. It's about taking one for the team.

no hard cc. a tank needs to be disruptive in a fight instead of just having permaslow to stop people chasing/easily chase people.

Tanks are champs that can survive a full out attack from 5 enemies, and still be able to have a real presence in the fight.

Mundo can get the first part of that, but if he does, he loses out the 2nd.

A tank is someone who can take damage, and help the squishys survive. Mundo is tanky, but he is not a tank. Why?

Because Mundo's skillset makes him good at taking damage, and surviving that damage. It really gives little to help others stay alive.

IMO, he is best built tanky dps. He can take dmg, and disk it out nicely, and has **** good lane presence.

A tank runs in first, disrupts the enemy team, soaks up damage, doesn't die, and ensure everyone gets out alive.
