So? I might ask, who won between TSM (US) and Azubu Frost? What you might not think is a good or viable item is surely popular somewhere else. Did you know, for example, they also jungle Karthus and Blitzcrank? Have YOU ever jungled either of those? I don't mean to come across as hostile, but when you do, it's awfully hard not to.

umm, azubu completely outplayed and rolled tsm.
i said dfg is broken, as in overpowered as ****.
yes, i have jungled karthus and blitzcrank.

Or it's just solid. Extra skill, great damage, nice cdr/ap.

I don't think Azubu completely outplayed TSM, I think Azubu's playstyle outplayed TSM. That is why NA loses to Koreans, the style of play is simply dominant to ours, we have to evolve, they do not. And no, it is not overpowered, it only overpowered when it can be stacked with other percentage based attacks.... Evelynn.

it does 60% of someones hp.
it turns karthus, who is a sustained damage mage into a burst caster capable of 1shotting someone.
did you know that dfg ryze is also a popular build in asia?
a dfg on ****ing RYZE


Except it wouldn't do 60% with Ryze. He's not building enough AP for that to work.

Cooldown reduction on Q also pretty sweet. (You don't get blue buff CDR while you're in your passive).

because it turned him into a burst caster.
how did you think he was able to get the only kills for his team?
because his dfg did 30-40% of someones hp with him at only 100 ap.

it doesn't do 60% with ryze, but it ends up doing about 30%.
just by buying a item that's cost efficient in terms of stats already, on top of giving you a minimum 30% health nuke is huge, and them building it on ryze, which is a caster that scales off MANA is a testament to how strong the item is.
