I get that Garen has a silence, aoe spin, passive armor/mres, and 1 insanly op ult but he seems to be incredibly easy to counter. People are saying he is so unfair and overpowered (which I can see) but he is patheticly weak against ranged pokers or tanks like malp. Why are people so scared or annoyed of/at a garen top?

I laugh seeing a garen top on the enemy team and turn on funny music when he's on mine to fight back the negative comments

Yeah, Teemo/Nunu can kite him to death very easily, also, vlad and kennen make garens cry, hes just good against tanky dps, he can beat the hell out of volibear, jax, riven, etc. And those are very popular solo tops, thats why he seems overpowered, but if you try urgot, nunu, or any other hard kiter you win easily, hes just like udyr, kite, you win.

I can see that his 3 hit combo/silence and spin is enough to harass alot of common tops and farm those cs, but if u can poke and kite he will be forced to back off huh...
