I've been maining wukong for several months now and when I go top lane there's hardly any one who can counter him. And as far as sustain just bring a couple hp pots and mana pots. If played right he can dominate beginning mid and late game. And with full runes he's a force to be reckoned with. Why do so many people think he's weak?

Lee Sin counters Wukong, that being said, I find Monkey Kings to be extremely helpful in teamfights. And likewise hate having one ult into my team.

Because other heroes do his job better.

Here's my inference and it was one agreed upon by my roommate who also played and has played for 2 years. Wu is more item dependant than others. If he gets zoned or ganked where he falls behind then he will fall hard. I've had games with wu where I tore it up and I've had games where I am just a P.O.S. for my team. Still relevant but just not effective. My best example is I played a mirror game with another wu and we were rather even in our farm and harrassment but he got 2 ganks to my 1 and I died on the first one and the other i got zoned for a lil bit. The other wu then snowballed just off of 1 kill. He was able to roam a lil and mess up other lanes while I had to farm. He became a game changer while I became just a body. I think his score was almost opposite of mine. He was something like 8/2/11 and I was something like 1/7/6 it was pretty bad. Player skill and strategy are obviously involved but I like to think we were fairly close in skill level. Just my observations someone else may confirm or deny this, but this would be my best stab as to why he isn't the strongest champ. Also any champ played perfectly will most likely beat any other champion even if played well.

Weak laning phase. He isnt the best at farming. Especially if there is a Jayce, Yorick or Darius top.
