I play High ELO with Rammus, he's not overpowered by any means but he's solid, no doubt. The good thing about Rammus is not many people know how to build him, and even then he doesn't do much damage provided the enemy team builds the minimal amount of MRes.

Rammus is still a strong pick in the right hands.

He is a highly mobile, hard to kill disruptive tank that can charge into a teams back line and force the carry out of the fight.
On top of that he is able to effectively gank bot AND saftely and quickly backdoor should the need arise.

Anyone who says he is bad just cause of a few nerfs needs to think long and hard about what Rammus can do.

Let's not forget that Rammus is just 1 out of the 5 champs on a team. He brings more to the table than 2 other champs with everything he can do.

If you don't think Rammus is an overpowered nightmare on Dominion, then I don't know what to say. I guess you play vs bad players.

Rammus is still a pretty strong champion, I will agree. But he no longer is one of the truly elite champions. A lot of champs can build tanky and still do lots of damage.
Darius. Warwick(Q spam), Yorick(manamune as only offense), Jarvin, many of the Triforce/Tanky champs.

Thornmail/Sunfire isn't exactly pure defense either. Sunfire isn't any better on Rammus than it is for anyone else, right? Thornmail is a bit better on him due to taunt of course.

Rammus IS quite strong IF the enemy happens to be mostly AD and/or has several autoattackers on their team. Just like Galio is particularly good vs lots of AP. This isn't representative of his true strength level though.

Sorry dude, but go play against Yorick bottom lane and see if Rammus is still the problem. Or play vs Jax every game for a while... :-)

Yes, he's a top tier pick. Yes, I've won my last 5 Dominion games in a row with him. But Riot has stated multiple times that they won't change a champ's stats on only a specific map, and any more nerfs because of his Dominion play will make him completely unplayable anywhere else.

How I build him:
Revive/Ghost.
1/21/8, for tankiness, buff to ghost, +2% MS, and +3% MS when above 70% hp.
Runes are a combination of Flat Armor, Scaling MR, and a dash of mp5, though I'll throw in some MS quints when I can afford them.
Build: Boots of Mobility + Cloth + 2 pots start ----> Shurelia's ---> Thornmail ----> Force of Nature -----> Randuin's------> situational 6th if the game runs on that long for some reason.


It works out really well, great at disrupting the enemy team with backdoors, ganks, and zone control. Also, nobody will outrun you. Ever.

Nope, Rammus is still broken. That he isn't played more is baffling.

LOL at "have the APs go kill the tank."

Rammus is a counterpick just like Malphite is. You either do well or feed.

Just like most other tanks he only functions well with his team.

The only time he does well solo is if he is built to do so, and in most cases those guys are just trolling their own team to try and get a high kill streak.

If you catch him in the jungle by himself. 2 players wreck him. If you catch him with another enemy. you kill the enemy and then kill him.

They really need to put in the dominion aura tooltip "movement speed softcapped at X" for those who don't realize mobility boots and phantom dancers stacking on teemo/shaco/rammus/eve aren't doing you any favours.
