Great early game
Snowballs easily and can carry games quite quickly after that.
Isn't really hurt too badly by not snowballing or even behind due to her good farm.
Her ult prevents people from chasing her down, or a little extra burst damage to grab a kill.
She tends to fall off a little bit late game, if the enemy team is way ahead or both teams are full builds.
She suffers a lot from hard cc.
We go press the attack because this gives allows Tristana to dash out the most DPS, by hitting enemies 3 times in a row, they will take increase in adaptive damage. This has a very good synergy with our explosive charge ability. Allowing us to deal massive damage during the early game and potentially securing first blood.
