Not a champion people normally complain much about, but now seeing him as a common FoTM champ is getting annoying.

My last like 7 games have been won with the team that has Gragas.

I don't think he is the sole carrier, but I'm curious as to common methods of dealing with him.

As a tank I'm either CCing enemy carries/support.
OR CCing and peeling melee off my carries.
However If i let Gragas sit on my squishies he rips them apart, yet is like a brick when trying to kill.

Gragas seems to dominate a lane completely, and even escaping ganks somehow.
Towerdives plenty and does relatively high damage for going with a Tanky/DPS build.


TLDR: What does my team and I need to do, not to prevent Gragas lane domination and thus have a farmed Gragas with very high durability and damage in team fights.

barrel roll by gragas is completely negligible late game, and is only good for the attack speed reduction. get in the way of his body slams so your teammates don't get slowed by them.

you need another early game powerhouse to deal with gragas. it's no susprise that he rips tryndamere a new a-hole 10 minutes into the game.. that's what he's supposed to do. send another early game domination jerk like xin or garen after him. that's how you deal with him.

Mostly referring to Solo Q atm, can't force everyone to go AoE team.
Isn't gragas Ult counter AoE team?

Seems that blowing an ignite an their off tank doesn't stop him from ripping other squishies apart.

And to the others, suggesting you focus Gragas in the teamfights?
Durr yes ARPen/MPen are necessary to kill tanks, just seems like he shouldn't have to be focused first.

I might just be complaining about Tanky/DPS in general, stop me if I am.
