I can tell you story's of such abominations like Atack Speed Poppy, AP Shen and tanking karthus.

Its NOT FUNNY!!! T_T


Ahem. Tank Karthus is not ridiculous.

He's not the best initiator but his wall of pain can do in a pinch. Add a rylai's scepter to him and his AoE also works for initiation if he comes in from the right direction or flashes in. And since Rylai's also gives health, it only adds to the tankiness.

His passive makes him not such a hot target to focus.* His ult makes it a losing proposition in many cases for the opponents to try to get away.

Yes, Karthus is actually quite tanklike. Just add health armor and magic resist... and he turns out to still have room for a fair amount of AP! He's a tank with some burst!

*To clarify: A tank should be such that it's important to focus him, but costly to do so. The typical advice is to ignore the tank until last--and this means that a good tank is one that can make it costly to follow this advice. So somewhat paradoxically, a good tank is both one that gives the team every reason to focus him, and also every reason not to focus him.

I am just tired of the leavers and feeders. Yeah, Ive had bad games, and ive had great games. They all end the same way though. Defeat. I wish I was lucky enough to just get the decent teammates my opponents are getting. The worst is when Im having a good game, and it ends up being crappy because the other teammates feed or suck, so there is NO way I can fight back and die alot.

Play with a tank..

A good tank/carry combo can babysit the other 3 if they aren't ******ed idiots.. I raised mine from 1050-11xx by playing with someone. Mine used to be around 1250 until I got on a huge losing steak. >.>
