Shouldn't Draven be kind of a mediocre fighter?

I know everyone loves him, but the majority of his experience is in throwing axes at the backs of fleeing prisoners. He's not some mega-badass warrior, he's an entertainer who kills people that don't fight back. Shouldn't he just get hosed when he goes into the League to fight people who actually have experience in real combat?

Who cares about lore?

He was a soldier before he was an executioner.

He has the accuracy to toss his axes across an arena and be able to hit his target.

I'm pretty sure he has combat skill too.

Uh, in what realm does Draven reliably 1v1 unless incredibly fed?
No ADC does that really well. Possibly Graves, but not really.

Draven hangs back in the group and hits people in the nape of the neck and then takes all the glory. Sounds like Yoloqueue ADC to- um, sounds like Draven to me.

Yeah but he didn't last very long as a soldier and there's no crazy story of him being a badass while he was a soldier like most other champs who came from the military. He just gets drummed out for being a Prima Donna and then goes on to kill helpless people for a living.

His brother is Darius, why wouldn't Draven know how to fight? Darius hates the weak.

One does not question Draven.

He is not only an entertainer. I think the lore says he wasn't as satisfied by the straight and boring glory of battle as Darius, though I may be wrong. So it is safe to say he has some battle experience. Perhaps he was as good as his bro on the battlefield.

But in fact, well, game mechanics don't have much to do with lore.
