Not Updated For Current Season

Threats to Kog'Maw with this build
Why play the bug. Why do I regard him as being stupid strong. One word. Cannon. THIS LITTLE **** IS LITERALLY THE STRONGEST ARTILARY BARRAGE OUT THERE. I mean there's a reason you see him played in the LCS right. He's just so strong. Right now he's even a broken jungler.
Flash heal is the current meta for all adcs. I like it for the mobility and escape HOWEVER. There are some time when I'll force my support to take heal and ignite; I do this so I can take ghost. Kogmaw and ghost shouldn't be allowed it's like a vayne on steroids. Honestly if I start chunking and a player gets under 1/2 health it's 9/10 a guaranteed kill.
Recently I've been... trolling? I don't really want to say it's trolling if it works. It's more totally outside the meta. Kogmaw. with smite/flash. Build bloodrazor then build bork. Get a Hurricane. Build tank or Lifesteal. OR whatever you want and just CHUCK THE LIVING **** OUT OF THEM.
W. that's your bread and butter. you take W and bork and you just do gods work son.
Off meta OP suggestion. Take W, get red smite. melt butter.
Pros / Cons
You want the truth. I'ma give it to you. Holy **** is his early game weak. Like honestly... w doesn't do **** til you get enough on hit items to really drop a big ole **** hammer on people.
To offset this, you gotta get a good support. Anivia is great pic for his support. A good anivia will do gods work with a good q+e chunk. AND THEN they're gonna peel... the wall is like NOPE the icestorm is gonna slow more than enough. And do you hear that... SPOOKIES.
My second pick is Braum... did you just hit that Q. O baby we're going in balls deep. Free kills free kills everywhere. NOTE. If you know how you can time your ult with Braums passive without losing a single auto, just stutter step the shot. FOM. and sustain plus face tanking for a kogmaw is like #****my pants.
SORAKA and SONA... Jesus ****ing tits ardent defender is cancer. But we love it.
Lulu.... @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ get out the gattlin gun.
But Rabbi, why are you putting this **** in pros and cons! shouldn't this go in teamwork?
Nope. **** you for thinking that. His laning phase is his weakness. His matchups predict his pros and cons.
Last hitting is hard depending on runes/masteries. W helps and is cheap. BUT that means you're trading poke for cs...
