Why does Riot hate Gangplank?

I build him semi tanky too, i only pull out critplank n a lost cause game. He as just become frustrating to play as. Sitting back and farming all day is boring as hell, and the only champ it really feels rewarding on is Nasus. Every nerf/buff to GP feels like Riot trying to shove him into a role he is poorly designed for. He has the endgame stats of a carry, with even lower armor and health than Master Yi, his CC is weak at best, and in the end he is still luck based. I love him to death and love playing him, but I guess I'm just frustrated wheres he's at because everyone does his job better.

You don't really need 3 potions and boots when you have infinite mana to eat an endless supply of lemons and farm with your bonus gold-giving, mana returning gun.

Just stay near your turret and parrrley away. You will literally not be stopped unless they organize a 3 man gank, but if they could arrange that, it means your team is suffering in other parts of the map and it's not really your fault anyways.

They dont' hate GP. They hate Oranges.

Since he's the only one who has them, they nerf him. duh.


I personally think Irelia's passive is way more potent than GP's citrus... though she's been nerfed a lot as well.

Trundle's CC reduction is also pretty legit.
If he ever gets a buff (aka late game scaling), people will definitely complain about his Contaminate.

Even maxing oranges, GP does have trouble against some champs.
Mainly the manaless champions give him a rough way to go.
Champions that scale harder can put GP at a disadvantage as well.

Vlad, Rumble, Lee Sin, Shen, Kennen
They can both harass and outpush him.
They also never have to leave the lane and are difficult to gank.
.

Nasus, Poppy, Irelia, Jax, Shyvana
Forcing a farm lane against these champs is dangerous... since they outscale GP and snowball incredibly hard once they get their core.
Not a good idea to pick GP against these 5... even more so than Vlad & co.

I rarely see Tryn up top these days, but forcing a farm lane against him isn't ideal either.
