Tse 3 are incredibly strong right now and are so so popular in competitive play.
They are picked or banned almost every single game.

I understand the Jarvan IV and Xin Zhao being top tier..
But why Vi? She really isn't all THAT strong is she?
Besides her ulti Assault and Battery being insane I have never really seen her make that much of an impact on a game.

Mundo goes where he pleases.


And pleases, where he goes.

They all have super strong early games, strong CC, snowball like madmen, and can build full tank and still murder carries.

Vi stands out because she's a FAR faster jungler, is more durable in early fights, and has a higher damage gank then Xin and Jarvan. Sure, she lacks CC before level 6, but if you get hit by any of the lane's CC and Vi's full force Vault Breaker and one or two of her Excessive Force, you're probably dead.

She feeds harder on over extension than any other jungler in the game right now, and in soloQ that is a very common event.

Interesting.
I should try some more jungle Vi.
She always seemed strong to me.. But almost seemed out classed.
But her snowball potential and level 6 ganks are enough reason to give her another shot.

Mundo goes where he pleases.

Oh man, Vi is one of the strongest champions right now.

She has a shield on a low cooldown as a passive which means she doesn't need to build sustain.

She clears incredibly fast with her E which also scales well with AD.

She scales super well into late game because of her W passive, which gives her attack speed, armor pen, and % max hp damage.

She has amazing mobility and gap closing with her Q which also acts as a ministun on contact (more CC than you think).

And her ult does a ton of damage and lets her ignore backlines and almost guaranteed instakill the enemy AD every fight.

Outclassed? Absolutely not.

Make sure you know how to build her: http://www.lolking.net/guides/81095

Generally you rush Bruta and spirit stone, get basic boots, get elder lizard, then warmogs, then black cleaver, then tanky stuff.

Thanks to TRUeLM, Plastictree, Scrax, Xiaowiriamu, foggy12, JahGFX, jhoijhoi, msrobinson, JEFFY40HANDS, Nyoike, MissMaw, and me :) for the sigs!

J4 doesn't need nerfs. He's super unreliable at everything that isn't guaranteed Flash burns.

Thanks to TinyStar, Jhoi, Xiaowi, Virus, Bard and Arcana(eww)...for my signatures!

Elohell is like Irelia's stun: if your real level is equal or lower than the level you are in, you're STUNNED there forever. If your actual level is higher than the level you are in, you're just SLOWED in your way up.

Riot combined all the good things from the top tier jungle champs in one champion - Vi.
I don't play LoL anymore.

Kinda agree but if thats is case why is he so popular?

He needs his ult fixed so less **** goes through blinks make sense but some skills that can go through make 0 sense.

Also his w needs to be useful... its piece of ****.
