In late game, this guy becomes one of the best....if not the best....Champions in the game. He becomes extremely unstoppable.

Is he considered a hyper carry?

I'm not QQing or anything, just curious.

And I know "CC shuts him down". That's a completely obvious statement xD

Not really he does scale well into late game but being melee kinda screws him over because he ends up taking damage from the aoes. The only melee who hypercarries is Poppy and you will have a hard time getting her to that point.

There are a few champs that are like that. Karthus, Trist, Kog. Although, if you watch the tourney, having one of those doesn't mean an insta-win. Kinda like how Jayce is, people say he is OP, but even when top players play them, it is still not a guarantee win lane type of deal.

Tryndamere wants to have a word with you.

IMO the best hyper carries are Vayne, Kog'Maw, and Tryndamere. Maybe Tristana.

His counterstrike actually mitigates AoE damage and a lot of carry basic attacks as well (which is what late game teams primarily rely on). Also, his tankiness from his ult scales hard into lategame.

While he doesn't hypercarry as well as Poppy to be sure, I'd still call him a hypercarry.

there are really strong lategame champs in league, and those few like jax and karthus can seriously carry a team on their own, but there're no hypercarries. can we just use the term "amazing lategame" from now on please?

if you want to know what a REAL hypercarry is, look up faceless void. the closest thing to a hypercarry in league is poppy because of her ult.

more like a hyper anti carry. the hyper carries can kill your team from anywhere, but jax basically has to start from the back line (relative to the so call hyper carries). hes also the only one that can actually get there.

Jax presses R. He now has 250-300 MR with just Maw/Treads and a dash of AP.

I wouldn't say he is a hyper carry, more a case of, If you let him he can become a major threat!
