So, I was in champion select for a ranked game the other day. I had first pick and my main was banned so I decided to pick Vlad. The next person picked Ashe. And then the next person picked Annie. It was about at this time that I realized we didn't have a tank. I ask one of the next two people to pick someone like Rammus, or Amumu. They came back at my with, "Vladimir gets over 3k HP he is our tank." ...........

To be short; I am sick and tired of people thinking that just because a character has high HP that that makes him a tank. NO! You need a good combination of Resistances, Initiating power, and health to be a good tank. So the next time you see a Morde, Vlad, or even Mundo. (yes he is supposed to be a dps) Please feel free to pick that Cho'Gath, Nasus, or Alistar.

You can make a decent tank build with Vlad. He's not the best, but he can get by. You picked a decent tank, your team assumed you would tank. Not their fault.

I like how you're saying Nasus can be a tank, but Mundo or Mord can't.

Whats low Elo like?

They cant tank, they can just become very hard to kill.

There are only 4 tanks in LoL, 3 if you want to be picky about it.

Who would those 3 be? Shen, Amumu and Rammus?

In Soviet Russia, Tank makes HP.

I would say that there are 4 tanks. Alistar, Amumu, Rammus, and Shen. Though, I find that Alistar is lacking in threat.

Karthus with Rylai's is totally tank.

Initiation with wall and his AoE.

Threat with lay waste.

Health (just like everyone else) with items.

"You'd better stay and fight or else" powers with his ult and passive.

tbh i had forgotten about allistar entirely, and was waffling on Cho. He has HP and disable, but you can kill his HP, sooooo.

The things i feel a Tank needs is some form of damage mitigation, and some kind of CC (besides slow).
