Who am i?

im a silver swain player who has very little mechanical skill or time to try climb (i hit silver 2 with an 80% win rate) but spends faaar too much time theory crafting and coming up with new builds
i also play some kog and im thinking of creating both an AD and AP kog guide with the help of the kog mains discord

Early game

early game if played top lane in a melee matchup you should be looking to bully HARD, you outrange 99% of top laners and out sustain them with your E but pre 6 dont get too agressive as if you over extend they will still probably win close range trades.
post 6 if your ahead and have your 6 passive stacks, you can probably 1 vs 1 any top laner if you land your E and W before hand.
your aim is to get your core items or just 2 items generally then either team fight or help your team dominate skirmishes as your mid game and team fight is godly.

in the mid lane swain goes even in most lanes and will even fall slightly behind due to getting out ranged, your aim here is just to keep up in CS and absorb pressure and hopefully set up free ganks for your jungler with E W which makes it almost impossible to escape without flash.
due to getting out ranged when not getting ganks you shouldn't have too much kill pressure unless you out-range your opponent however being mid allows for roams and skirmishes which swain excels at thanks to his amazing wave clear and his E + ult
once again your aim should be to get 2 items then dominate in team fights and skirmishes

mid - late game

in my opinion swains mid to late game is his his best point, he has one of the best ultimate for team fighting, an E that can CC along with his W and damage back line and if played correctly can be nigh unkillable during fights while completely destroying their team.
his late game team fight is the reason i like to build swain as a pseudo tank with frozen heart and visage as at shotgun range and only 400 AP his q still does an insane amount of dmg.
