1) He does 320 true damage on nearly no cooldown.

2) Impossible to CC, Immune to ALL CC, like how is this fair?

3) Free lifesteal and extra damage because of how much health you have? So you stack Warmogs and do massive damage?

4) Long range nuke that does the same damage to all targets hit?

5) Free attack speed for losing health, but he stacks health and gets free lifesteal so he never dies, WTF?!?

((This is in response to some idiot's "what counters Irelia" thread)) As you can see, you can make any champion in the game sound OP by making a thread in this fashion, I don't actually think Olaf or Irelia is OP.

[Edit] Lol@downvotes because people think I'm actually calling Olaf OP...read the whole thing its not that long

Except Riot has actually stated that, for those same reasons, that Irelia is too strong because she can't be countered.

You over-dramatized Olaf. That other person did not over-dramatize Irelia.

1) It also hits him.
2) That's his ultimate. It's fine
3) Alright, go play Olaf and stack Warmog's. Tell me how it goes.
4) Without a slow, he would have no way to get to his target. It's one of the reasons he's really good. Be happy he doesn't have a gap closer like Irelia or Xin Zhao.
5) Sounds good in theory. The only time he can actually out-lifesteal an enitre team is if you've fed him the entire game. If that happened, you deserve to lose.

You kite him right after his ult finishes. There you go.


Also, blind/exhaust to decrease/mitigate his auto attack damage.

Except he did.

She's nowhere near as powerful as people make her out to be. Is she a powerhouse? Yes, but her early game is so bad anyone with half a brain should be able to capitalize on it and shut her down, and Ignite makes her healing impossible.

She has a lot going for her, and probably does need a nerf, but she's nowhere near blatantly OP.
