I've come across a great number of lanewicks. I've always thought the whole point was that his jungle potential (which is famously high) goes to great waste, not that he couldn't lane or shouldn't lane...

I play quite a few junglers, and I honestly cant stand WW it the jungle, there just feels like better options. I feel like his lane power is rather strong, he's an anti-tanky DPS with his Q (does 17% of the enemies max HP) at rank 5, added on is his MBR, plus his general tankyness. On top of this is ult can lock down a squishy carry.

A farmed WW can be a real problem. I play a decent lanewick (much better than I play him in the jungle), and I find it pretty easy to assert control. You really need to assert your dominance early, and get a quick gank. You'll have complete lane control.

I've managed to 2v1 with him (unranked) but its extremely horrible and he'll usually fail the lane.

Is it just me, or is Wickd currently playing lanewick? I've seen him do it few times recently, wouldn't be surprised if he did it again this game.


..And they're winning.

Lanewick fits a niche. He's extremely strong vs melee ranged champions with a limited.mana pool like jarvan but he can't accomplish much vs champs like maokai, corki etc

As did Guardsman Bob in other tournament game with lanewick
A fed irelia is just going to get her tiforce and go tanky. There are far scarier solos or champs when they get farmed.

Even if they are laning with him doesn't mean it's good. Not when you are THE ONLY one able to jungle.
