If you make a team around Mumu, wouldn't just make it an old school ult bomb team?


He's a tanky dps, the whole point of everyone in this thread is that the meta is tanky dps

sure, throw in Amumu because tanky dps will not do everything for you, but chars like Garen/ Olaf/ Xin are just too rape together atm

garen isnt a tank hes a fighter that works better with a tank spec hence why his dps doesnt really suffer


tanks can pretty mush destroy teams but they are late game shiners usually 2-3 tanks work with 2-3 range

sion AP spec (yes even with a AP spec hes still pretty tankable) is evil

cho HP spec is insane

nunu with a mix of AP and tank items is evil

and yes there are more tanks are just the win all champs right now but u shouldnt make ur who team tanks

Morg isn't a tank either.
And neither is Garen.

So..ultimately, a "tank team" actually consists of a tank, a support caster, a tanky DPS (off tank), a normal DPS, and a ranged DPS?

No wonder this "tank team" is so **** strong. What people call a tank team is actually just a normal, balanced team!


You missed the whole point

Garen is tanky, and so is Morgana.. if you disagree well I dunno what to say.

They're all off-tanks FYI, as long as you build them correctly.

And back in beta, it used to be Nunu, Mumu, Fiddle ++
Except we call it the ult bomb team.
So yup, we've come a full circle. It died last time, and it will die again soon enough.. just like the heal teams (with help of some nerf), kiting team (which didn't need any nerf), and poking team (which also didn't require any nerf).

It's called a player nerf, players figure out how to counter the currently "OP" thing and then proceded to counter comp for an easy win.

Morgana builds as caster-tank, Garen builds as tank, Olaf builds as tank-dps, same way as Xin.

The power of tanky team lies mostly in them being unpushable.

So you need to play very defensively most of early and mid game.
