I like using him vs Darius for example top.
If you get ahead as Kennen the game is pretty much over, you have so much AoE damage, i like how i can decide that a fight has started.
Also hotshotgg said that probably the only thing more scary than 6 item Twitch is 6 item Kennen as he just solo's the enemy team. (heard that on his stream, he also said twitch w/o ult is useless :D)
Check out my singed guide :)

I haven't seen him much recently. He still seems ok, however you shouldn't worry about other people's opinion on viability just worry about making the champ. work for you.

Kennen is a fairly situational pick. He doesn't work on every teamcomp, but he makes certain comps absolutely shine. Any team that focuses on heavy CC and AOE damage really requires kennen (for example, Sona Graves bot, J4 in the jungle, and Viktor mid- sona initiates, ken rushes in and stuns everyone again as jarvan ults, then graves and viktor all just dump everything into j4's toilet bowl)

I picked Kennen in one of my ranked games not too long ago and it went fine. He's not a very popular pick for mid or top at the moment, but he's not awful or anything. If you want to play him, feel free to do so.
Thanks to The_Nameless_Bard for the sig!

Kennen has been used a couple of times in the LCS as an adc.
I was surprised at first to see him..
But he really holds his own and can play a very mean adc. Too many stuns..

Mundo goes where he pleases.


And pleases, where he goes.

he's pretty bad, Seeker's Armguard made him more viable, but Rumble, Akali, etc. are all better AP tops

The ult change they gave him was huge, but he's still weak because of the current meta of health stacking
Thanks for the Signature MissMaw!

I've seen Kennen's still do well. I don't see why not.

He's not weak, but not as strong of a pick compared to some other AP topers.
