Zerg's Poppy Guide to Become the Hero You Didn't Know You Ar

By ZergDood
Introduction
Why Poppy? Back to Top

Hello everyone! I'm Zerg, new in guide making and also new to League. That doesn't mean my knowledge isn't there, though, because I'm really interested in constantly learning, testing and sharing my thoughts about things I enjoy. This guide will be entirely about Poppy.
Pros and Cons Back to Top
Poppy Is a particular champion in League, who can perfectly help her team in many ways, but isn't particularly amazing in most situations.

She's a versatile tank, who can easily disrupt or disengage unwanted teamfights, dive, take the enemy carry out of the fight or protecting her own. Her most notable abilities are her Steadfast Presence and Keeper's Verdict, that you won't find in any other champion in the game.

She isn't really bad at any point of the match. Her early game is surprisingly good for a tank, her mid game is amazing and her late game is solid, given her utility at teamfights, she can really shine there. She isn't the main engaging tool, though, because of her kit's nature, she's good at taking on a single champion, so she's better at skirmishes, or working with another tank in her team.

She's really fun and simple to learn! There's some tips and tricks here and there(I'll explain them later), but you'll mostly get the idea after a few matches. Hope this guide can help you have fun and/or climb with her!
When do I choose Poppy? Back to Top
PROS
+ Good Against AD
+ Remarkable mobility for a tank
+ Teamfight potential
+ Good at peeling
+ Stops dashes! Really good counterpick!
Poppy isn't the best champion in the game, but she's really versatile and can take on most games with bravery. She's a good counterpick to champions who depend on dashes, and can stop most splitpushers (the exceptions to this rule, however, are really strong). She's really good at messing thing up, being that for good or for bad.
CONS
- No sustain aside from her passive
- Easily kited at a certain range
- Her niche has long cooldowns
- Outscaled by other tanks
- Can mess up teamfights if careless
Poppy, given her versatility and how crazy her kit is, can mess things up. You NEED to pay attention to positioning and predict what will happen next before going ham, really. Also, Poppy doesn't scale as much as other tanks, like Maokai or Malphite do, so you might want to help your teammates win as soon as possible.
Abilities Back to Top
Poppy likes to play against heavy AD, and dashing compositions. She can stop multiple splitpushers like Tryndamere, and can demolish the likes of Irelia and Camille, given a little bit of experience in the matchup. She's one of the best tanks for dueling, because tanks aren't supposed to have a good laning phase, and Poppy's surprisingly ok for laning.

Because of Poppy's defensive nature, she's good at peeling. Her strength is at taking control of carries, both the enemy carry and your own, thanks to your disruptive potential.

You can choose Poppy when:
-Your carry needs peel
-Your team has skirmish potential
-Your team has teamfight potential
-Against full AD, mobile comps

You don't want to choose Poppy when
-Your team is for splitpushing
-There's more than 2 tanks already
-There's no engage.
-Against full AP, inmobile comps
