Well i played him because he looked cool as eff.

What i like is his midgame potential, as well as poke. Some people will say hes 'flexable' but hes really not, hes actually one of the least flexable mages. Always get Death Augment etc... I very much enjoy his abilities, i think the only problem i have with him is his low range/lack of mobility.
My favorite thing about Viktor is that he's flexible, and doesn't have glaring weaknesses. He feels like a mage that can't really be countercomped easily.

Against an assassin ? Put a few points in Q, and you can trade better than your opponent expects.

Against someone with poke? Death Ray + Augment Death is just as good as anyone else's poke.

I honestly feel like Viktor is one of the safest mages if you want to first pick. Compare to champions like Morgana or Xerath or Zyra or Ziggs or Lux. His midgame burst can be obscene, and honestly his super-late game is not nearly as bad as people think. Still does more damage than six item Lux or Morgana with his "five item build".

The problem with Viktor: only Augment: Death ever feels worth it, and your item builds feel very limited--especially due to the interaction between Liandry's and Rylai's in conjunction with Chaos Storm and Augment: Death.

Besides: playing a rarely played champion is awesome.

Hey, so... It's been three days since the last post and -while I don't think it will happen- I don't want this thread to die.

Has anyone heard any news? With TF's reworked passive, and Janna's and Zilean's getting looked at, I'm curious about what is going on with Viktor's. He doesn't need a complete rework, but a bit of acknowledgement from a Red would be nice. Even a: "Hey, I'll take a look at it." or something is not too much to ask, right?

I heard he is busy starring at the ceiling, ignoring Viktor in the process.

Must be tough work.
