Isn't about how well he does in lane though, it is how well he takes advantage of the solo lane.

Which isn't particularly well.

This is true. I lol'd.

Then again, it still forced him to back off and hug his tower a lot more.

This, he's good for making sure your tower doesn't get pushed down easily though.

This is the problem with lanewick. Although he has good sustainability in most lanes, he doesn't offer much else. Little ganking power and fed ww is just going to get his MBR and go tanky. There are far scarier solos or champs when they get farmed. So I guess what I'm trying to say here is that it's viable but why would you? They did lose that game. As did Guardsman Bob in other tournament game with lanewick

But Nidalee did more damage to his tower than he did to Nidalee's.

And Nidalee got super farmed and owned playing the spear game.

And WW did nothing in team fights.

What did Warwick accomplish with all that top lane solo farm?

Too bad that Nidalee player had rocks in his head.
WW is meh-tier in the lane. If you put him up against a ranged champion that can easily clear waves of minions (Like corki or malzahar), you've got him beat.

Lanewick is horrible against anyone with self-healing capability.

His whole thing is that he'll outheal your damage while whittling you down.

Except he can't really do that against someone like Nidalee.

I'm sick of this discussion, because the morons who think WW always belongs in the jungle are the same ones that think Vayne is OP and get perma slowed to death by Ashe.

Lanewick is a niche thing, good for countering mobile carries in team fights. If your team already has a jungler in and they grab Vayne, Teemo, Ashe, or Corki, Lanewick is a **** good option. Yeah he's a consistent jungle, but he doesn't offer much more than average control, gank power, and really good sustainability, while an Olaf, Nunu or Trundle end up having a much better early game impact.

Lanewick will never gain acceptance because his team lost

That's like saying if you put Teemo in a lane with Malzahar or Annie he's beat.

WW shouldn't lane against champions he's not good against. Put him against a Teemo, Jax, or Vayne and he does much better.
