No.... just 100% no.... go away...you're so far off.

Nasus = won't even be a fight....
Sion = won't even be a fight....
About 50+ other champions = won't even be a fight.....

Darius suck ass late game

Well any AD champion will suck if you spend 5/6 of your items on pure defence late game (Except for Nasus, Volibear, and formerly Olaf as primary examples).

If you build Darius properly, he doesn't fall off hard at all, and he can still contribute meaningfully in teamfights. He has an AoE Displacement pull, an AoE circular slash, and an AS/MS debuff he can apply. On top of this, they will apply a DoT to all the people hit, therefore he often gets a lot of damage off on many people in teamfights. Alongside this, he also has an execute ult that goes through defences. People have argued whether or not this is good because it may starve his team of gold. The thing is, it doesn't matter if his team is starved of gold when your team is lying dead and his is pounding on your Nexus.

However if you decided that you want to be a second or third tank (Jungler/You or Jungler/Support/You) and then proceed to build Randuins/Bulwark/Sunfire/BV/etc all at once, then of course you're going to be nothing more than a giant armored HP pool walking around late game.

Remember how people used to think Jayce had a trash tier late game before? Then people learned to build him properly (Actual AD items instead of complete bruiser items), and now he's seen in tournaments everyone now and then.

Even Jax will seem average despite his godly late game if you decide to be stupid and invest way too much into purely defensive items, not knowing that it's better to build him offensive, because his offensive stats scale into his defensive ones when he activates his ult. Why will this happen? Because you built him wrong.


Falling off? Please refer to Renekton and Garen.

They both fall off late game too you know lol....

A darius who builds heavy AD just gets focused end game and insta gibbed.... Several champions beat him easily late game even in a 1 on 1 scenario... in a team scenario he does even worse...... Now I direct you to the title of the post.... notice the word "best".

Sorry man if you like him, but he's not a late game champ by *any* means.

Who said build heavy AD? I'm talking about building a mix of offensive/defensive items such as Frozen Mallet, Maw of Malmortius, or maybe even throwing in a Bloodthirster with your items. I'm not saying building IE BC LW and BT, that's stupid, and that's what I imagine you're thinking

Yes there are champs that fall off, but it's absurd that you people can't accept that not everyone that isn't Ryze, Karthus, Vayne, Kog'Maw, or Jax can actually scale into late game decently, even if it's not remotely as close to these prominent champions.

Who do you think are the best late game champions for each position? I'm thinking...

Top: Nasus, Malphite, Darius?

Mid: Diana, Akali, Ryze, Brand

Jungle: Malphite, Amumu, Hecarim

ADC: Miss Fortune, Tristana, Vayne, Kog'Maw

Support: Sona, Nunu, Alistar

What do you guys think?


You value Brand and Akali late game over a Karthus or a Veigar?? And how does MF compare with the other 3 hypercarries? She has an ult, that's it.
