I've seen a lot more of these players lately and they were quite game changing.
We had a first glimpse at this role with Shaco.
But now instead of backdooring uselessly the enemy mid, they help taking top, protect mid from backdoor, and gank bot as much as possible.

I think this new emerging trend will become more and more a standard.
I already saw some quite successful champs like Shaco, Eve, Twitch, Talon, Poppy, Blitz, Rammus...

First, take top with 4 players. 3 people top should be enough to defend the tower.
Rush bot and gank. Death is meaningful now, and if the enemy bot laner dies often, there will be a level difference and your bot laner will be able to push a lot more.
Rush top again once you ganked bot.

what ur talking about is the anomaly of a brainless assasin going around killing people and doing well, this isnt a good strategy, it just wrecks nubs.

what assasin can really just go around the map killing people without getting jumped in jungle all day or wasting hella time?

either gonna be too squishy or lack the burst

You don't have to run in the jungle, you can TP back and use the fog of war to go top or bot.

Sorry, but I beg to differ Cubertt, a good friend of mine has followed this tactic with either Twitch, Teemo and, believe it or not, a terribly havoc-wrecking AD-Evelynn and he DID WORK, whether the enemies were fails or really good players.

Yeah, I'm beginning to see this a lot more often than I'd like to. :/

yep. i've been roaming with AD Eve since day 1 - backdooring when need to but really just being everywhere.

recently, i've been trying LeBlanc for the same role. but the 4 assassin / tank meta works really really well.
