It would help if you would quote their arguments, or link to the posts where these were brought up.

I thought Nekrogen was the first AD malz.

Also, I don't remember inventing sustain lol

Don't really agree with this.

Their tournament didn't even have balanced sides.
Not saying as bad as CLG vs X-Storm.. but almost the same.

Wait, someone had to INVENT ganking bot lane, and the fact that Wukong/AD Shaco always scaled well with items and excels when they're given free gold? Insanity!

I believe the original poster is implying these people were more a CATALYST of these meta changes and proppelled these ideas to popularity rather than single handedly being responsible for them through out all enternity. Think with your brains u guys.........

As one of the first people to start ganking bot, I can tell you that at the time, bottom lane was almost completely ignored. If the enemy didn't cap your bot, you ignored them. I was one of the few people who didn't only gank bottom, but ganked it consistently, regardless of how successful bot lane was, allowing easy caps, and forcing the enemy team to try to recap bot while pressure went onto top/mid.

Ganks were just not common, now they are fairly common. Still not common enough in pubs.

Spacefrog put out the first AD malz guide, having played AD malz to success a large number of times before nekrogen even started not playing Ryze.

Fdru is more the 'WW' king, the first person to start using him reliably.

There is also the Udyr unmovable meta change, caused by Jjaja
