Hate to be that guy about a recently released champ but...

First of all she has 53% wins with a 30% popularity rate. That's an insanely high win rate for a fotm champ.

Now for the actual kit..

Her Q is broken. Rocket launcher gives 700 range passively (Trist has 703) AND 10% AD bonus damage to all autos AND it deals 100% of the damage as AoE to nearby enemies.

Her W has too much range and too much scaling. Fast missile, 70% slow, grants vision, 140% AD scaling.

Her E offers overwhelming lane presence when coupled with an aggressive support.

Her ult seems fine as is.

Her lane phase is among the strongest in the game and she scales harder than almost any adc outside of Vayne and Kog. The math is there, that win rates are undeniable, Jinx is OP pls nerf.

I main ADC in Gold 3, and all I gotta say is this is true as hell, she's broken op... Crazy utility, long range, attack speed and AD steroids, an absurd amount of CC for an ADC, global powerful aoe ult, passive movespeed, crazy long range AOE, just wtf. FIX THIS SHT

Better ignore all her downsides like how she can't survive people jumping on her without peel.

I love when posts like this get downvoted. EVERY Jinx OP thread makes all these wild statements about how she has all these overpowered stats. Does She get her Q range for free like Trist? No it costs mana, AND it requires her to level the skill. That means that while Trist is slowly building up her range, Jinx won't see a noticeable difference until she puts 3-5 points into the skill (which does not happen till later due to leveling W for burst). Also you can't compare skills without comparing kits. Does Jinx have a huge knockback + gapcloser for safety? Does Jinx have grievous wounds to win trades against ADC's? Stop comparing individual skills then saying "OMG Jinx has a better version of this! OPOPOPOPOPOP!".

Her W is by far one of the easiest skillshots to dodge in the game. It has a cast time, a travel time, and a clear telegraphed indicator. It is blocked by minions, or can be body blocked by a tank. People seem to ignore all these factors. They try to out run the skill instead of walking left or right. Her W is basically Nidalee's spear but with less damage and is easier to avoid. Hell XERATH'S Q is harder to avoid than Jinx, and that skill is telegraphed as hell.

Any bruiser/tank/assassin with a gap closer can destroy Jinx, as her snare has not only a set up time, but can be jumped over. Once someone is on her she is not getting away. Even if she blows flash, she is tied with Anivia and a few others for the lowest base MS in the game, so catching up to her (assuming you don't just walk into every W she tosses) is quite simple.

Thank you sir. I would like to add that Jinx only gets 1% AS per level whereas Trist gets 4% per level. Tristana also has a higher base AS at .656 than Jinx's .625 so Trist scales better with bonus AS. Also, Tristana can use her 90% AS boost at 703 range, but Jinx can only use her 130% AS boost at 525 range where she gets stunned and killed. In the end... JINX IS BALANCED PEOPLE.

She has a Jax passive to win trades, which is much better than a grievous wounds ability that has no range and ap scaling.

Trist doesn't scale with AS period. She has an AS steroid... Vayne scales with AS, Kog scales with AS, Cait scales with AS but not as well. Trist does not scale with AS.
