In the City of Progress we strive for innovation
We won't rest till we hear it 'cross the nation
Work hard and you can find success without mitigation
We're the best, hear that standing ovation

Toplane: Jayce
Jungle: Vi
Midlane: Orianna
ADC: Caitlyn
Support: Blitzcrank

How has this NOT been played? Seems really strong. Alternately:
Toplane: Vi
Jungle: Rumble
Mid: Heimerdinger
ADC: Ezreal
Support: Orianna

It seems that Piltover actually has decent opportunity for Poke/AoE compositions. As well as a good Tanky frontline.

I think its pretty hard to get away from a poke comp with Piltover champs.

The strongest strat seems to be poke down with Jayce gate+shockblast, Orianna ball or Heimer missiles, and Corki/Ezreal skillshots... Once the enemy is softened up, its not too hard to initiate with Blitz hook, Vi ult, or Rumble ult.

The main problem seems to be patience! No one wants to stand and poke when they see all 5 enemy champs and they rush in premature...

Piltover probably has the best range of ADC's with Corki, Caitlyn and Ezreal. All have good poke and escapes. Our biggest problem is our lack of CC and Tanks. Makes Vi or Orianna pretty necessary. Vi-Ori ult combo O.o

Rumble and Ezreal are both in Piltover.

This is super true. I got drunk on Blitz hooks and grabbed when we didn't actually want to fight yet.

Rumble and Ezreal both affiliate with Piltover, thus they are part of the faction, argument invalid.

Minus Rumble: He is part of Bandle City.

Ezreal is part of Piltover (he was born there and is the grandmaster explorer of piltover source: http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wik...er_of_Piltover)

Although you are correct about Rumble... He's aggressively part of bandle city and he doesn't approve of Heimer or Zigg's association with Piltover...
