I personally think Lucian is better mostly because I think he's more stable and transitions into mid-game better. Also, the Reaver is so bonkers on him right now. I cannot be certain myself as I rarely play Tristana.

Lucian (currently about 800-700 IP away from him on that account), but I find Tristana much more fun to play outside of laning phase, or in lane against weaker players who I can actually win lane against despite her weak laning phase.

Tristana feels pretty broken to me after the first 3 items ( Infinity Edge- Statikk Shiv- Rapid Firecannon), but her laning phase makes her an awkward pick at this level. Standard procedure so far is for me to either get counterpicked/pick myself into a bad matchup like Lucian or Miss Fortune, be the enemy ADC's ***** for the first 10 minute, spend the next 5-10 minutes catching up, then proceeding to make up for the weak early game as soon as I finish my core and enter god mode. It feels like with the new items, Tristana's become a hyper carry again, as opposed to the PVE tower killer her rework initially made her. You'd think the rapid firecannon build would further cement her into a sieging role as she can poke towers from outside their range, but in my experience it's been far more effective to use all the energized autos on champions, especially squishies. In one of my recent games I crit a Graves for 80% of his HP, from over 800 range away. I don't remember if I did but I could have easily Rocket Jumped forwards and auto'd him one more time to kill him in a total of 2 auto-attacks.

Lucian's definitely got his own strengths, but I'm in love with Tristana's playstyle with these new items. And in the games where I managed to get a lane swap going I didn't see any drawback to picking Tristana over Lucian, given that I was skipping the weak laning phase and just entering mid game as an ahead Tristana for free.

High master-challenger game carried by the random plat 1 dude. B)




We were even in kills, had CS lead on every lane and 3 towers to 0, but Syndra was raging hard at me for taking CS while I was on mid lane to take the tower. When he asked why I was taking minions I replied "I'm sieging". A minute later Syndra got caught and died and then said "**** this i afk farm bot", then went bot lane and proceeded to freeze for the short remainder of the game. They pushed down all 3 of our mid lane towers and our inhibitor, with our whole team shouting at Syndra to come play properly, to which she would only respond "guys im sieging bot farm", continuing her freeze. Eventually she recalled to defend our nexus (once our nexus towers were already destroyed), but we'd lost people trying to defend the towers/inhibitor 4v5 so at that point it was beyond late.

I guess now I know to dodge next time I get that guy in my game.
