Just because a pro doesn't play it doesn't mean it's not viable.

Is supportplank as strong as say Taric, Alistar, or Blitzcrank? Probably not, but that doesn't mean it's automatically worthless because of that.

No really, it would be in pro play if it was viable.

Also some characters appear out of nowhere in the tournament scene. Remember Shyvana? Kayle? Zyra?

Also, Gangplank benefits from the Season 3 pickpocket mastery more than any other character. He applies the melee gold proc from range, with his Q cooldown being shorter than the cooldown on pickpocket. I still wouldn't play him unless everyone on my team scaled with AD (i.e. Katarina for magic damage), but I wouldn't detract it out of hand.

Because you only pick what Pro's pick, and your are totally not a sheep who is incapable of free will.

Support fiddle is way less viable than support GP imo.

Imagine an ad version of nunu that ignores cc.

Also I love that you can think only champs that get tourney play are viable, basically saying you have no imagination or initiative. GL with that
