why are you posting in a 6 month old thread

caitlyn's range gives her a niche as a powerful early game champ so she's quite good, although still not a top pick for tournament play.


i think it's actually a prime example of someone who actually used the search function

Probably, yea.
I don't see the problem as long as you bring something new.

Caitlyn is viable, but she's not first-pick/ban material. She's a fantastic laner, so as long as you can crush your enemy in lane you're golden. A lot like urgot.

I find her range to be the deciding factor. Also, you can do some good harass with her passive. By range I mean both her AA's and Piltover, and ofc the traps which are legendary. And to top it off she has her own nice little escape mechanism, which can also be used to quickly take dragon in a safe manner, by being able to jump out of there any time.

I think the actually played order is: 1. vayne 2. ashe 3. cait

At IEM, we have seen many caits, if vayne and ashe are picked/banned.

So yeah, cait is viable if the other are picked or banned.
He is gonna kill you!!!

Caithlyn is one of the most dominating champions in a duo lane, her poke is sick, her passive can zone opponents, her traps work well with chain CC and her ulti can be used to slowly push your opponents out of lane. If you don't fail at farming your late game damage will be crazy good while still bringing a lot off utility to the team through pokes and traps. Caithlyn is one of the best AD carries in game atm.

If you're looking for a way to get out of ELO hell with AD carries though; vayne is a better pick then. She just does so much damage, snowballs like an avalanche and is really dominant in lane. Or if you duo queue a lot get kog'maw with a good support bot lane, your early game is ****, your mid game is "ok" but your late game is just ridiculous; just press w and **** dies crazy fast.

Yes she is very viable, but only with a good support . Also she tends to take adventage of the noob supports at 1400-1700 ELO who can't hit the caster minions at the tower because caitlyn pushes very well , and thus can deny the gold of the enemy carry because it is much easier to miss last hits with the tower shooting at minions making it sometimes impossible to get off last hits .

She is very deadly when combined with taric and it's just gay to see taric and cait at bot because it's near impossible to win once taric placed wards and cait got 2 traps before your tower , meaning walking in one of those traps is certain death because then taric stuns you and cait fires at you .

She haves an OP early game , but lacks in the late game .

EDIT : I missed out on vayne , vayne is a very strong AD carry champion to with very high DPS output , especially late game and she tends also to bring those characters with high armor down faster then other AD carry champions . I am still unsure if Vayne or Tristana haves a better late game .

Btw at the guy mentioning Miss fortune ..... lol hahaha , noob detected . Miss fortune sucks *** , channeled ultie on AD carry who always gets focused is so pro design ....... Miss fortune is the worst AD carry currently .

Still Tristana haves strongest late game , Cait haves strongest early game. Caitlyn also tends to need red because she doesn't have a good in build slow , so try and get red in the mid-late game . In general Caitlyn is viable at higher ELO's and I have seen that cait + ashe + tristana + corki are the main AD carry champions to pick at higher ELO levels , Kog'Maw tends to be popular recently now aswell , maybe it is due to its large AoE radius that he currently haves with the bugg .
