I know that many of these questions depend on the player's personal preference but I've got 5k IP and I'm wandering if I should buy Ezreal or Kog'maw ? I was wandering which one does the most damage when built right, providing that they're well farmed. I would ask which one is the most fun to play but we all know that a game of LoL is almost never fun if you're not on the winning side, any help would be great.

Kog does more damage.

Both are fun.

Assuming you can land Ezrael's skill shots, he is pretty good as well.

If you can't do that, he sucks.

Granted you land everything, Kogmaw still does more damage.

I like having a Kog with me, as his artillery thing is fantastic to have. Plus, Lion Dance Kog'Ma skin where he shoots rockets is too cool to pass up with lots of attack speed IMO. PEW PEW PEW

Kog definitely does more damage.

At first you will see Kog Maw as an ugly ET kind of insect.
Then you'll find he's as cute as a little dog. I can sometimes see him smiling.
-> Next step : dream about him

EZ's mobility makes him fun to play if you like running everywhere. Dont you have any close friend who has them, or at least one of them ? Test it if you can, free week champ system could make you wait a long time, i guess you could even buy both before those 2 would have been in free week list.

Ezreal is for early dominance log might be up with tristana on late game power. Log is the stronger pick though because of his slow as opposed to ezreals 0 cc other then his w

AS Bonus are even (passive for EZ vs passive from Q for Kog) even if EZ need some sec to bring it to 5 stacks (or nice ult)
About poke, it's different with Q and R from EZ vs R from Kog, dunno which are better.
However Kog rapes with active from W, also giving him strong range.

And, even if i'm not good in math, i could see kog having a better scaling with crit and AS, being heavily based on auto attack, where EZ's Q/W/E/R dont scale with it and are still a large part of his damage.

Mobility from EZ can help, but not quantifiable in this comparaison.

Ezreal is apparently big in China. I dunno why, he just is.

I like him better than Kog though. The re-positioning is just too strong.
