I haven't tried him in U.R.F yet, but I can easily see the fun factor there. Too many punctures, not enough enemies

he's beyond OP in URF actually haha, I'd say the strongest champ in it, I've won probably 25 out of my last 30 games with him in it. easily 20+ kills every match.

build straight up AP. Don't worry about tanky items, just straight up ap. I usually start with W to stay safe until level 3. Smart enemies SHOULD just dive you or your lane partner, but nobody does, so W will just take care of any pokes. At lv 2, get E. This will let you safely harass, along with CS help. At lv 3, get Q and just dive. If you have a decent lane partner, they will back you up too. You should already be winning fights at this time. I personally max W first to stay alive and tanky since I don't build any tank items. Max Q 2nd, then E 3rd. Ulti is on a 20 sec or so CD. If you land an Ult, just spam dat Q as you drag them away. You might get around 4 Q's off before ulti ends

Only Issue I've ran into was LeBlanc








Also, a suggestion! If Skarner grabs a champ with Ulti, casting E hits the ult'd target, but also firing a spray of shattered crystals that hit other enemies. Casting W doesn't affect skarner, but covers the enemy in a slowing, crystal casing when they get out of the ult.

People have been boycotting Skarner for months. He has the second lowest pick rate, behind only Urgot.

You puffing out your chest and being rude isn't a counter-argument, its 3rd grade antics. Sorry you get so worked up about a game and all, sheesh.

Sorry, tempers tend to run a little high around here because we feel quite annoyed with Riot, and Scruffy in particular. Many players, from all levels of skill ranges, said no to this rework before it was even released onto PBE. Even many of those who agreed with the rework wanted some changes done. However, Scruffy almost completely disappeared before the rework hit PBE, and even when he did post something, it was horribly out of touch with what the community wanted. So, as you can imagine, people tend to be a little ticked off because of this.

In terms of your earlier posts, you are completely entitled to enjoy playing Skarner. You are completely entitled to post that here. However, if you do, the best way to avoid getting bashed is to explain why you like playing him- not the ways you have fixed the problems that he has inherently by picking different summoner spells or building different items, just a step-by-step analysis of why you enjoyed playing him. A post containing something like that would give both the community and Scruffy MUCH more to work with than "HE'S FUN LOL, STOP BASHING CAUSE I SAID A CHAMPION WAS GOOD, NOOBS" (not exactly what you said, but its actually fairly close, and it's probably how the community sees it).

Skarner is actually fine, he could use some small changes such as making his E slightly faster travel time, and I feel he should have higher base movement speed equal to Master Yi.

But no, Skarner is excellent, people keep playing him and building him wrong.

No changes in 4.5, so... I'll assume you just lied to us.
AGAIN.

No offense dude, but your level 25. You don't even have all your runes yet.
