Not really, Graves can be really aggro with the mana and heals and armor. It's not the best lane but it's pretty good.

Thanks to TRUeLM, Plastictree, Scrax, Xiaowiriamu, foggy12, JahGFX, jhoijhoi, msrobinson, JEFFY40HANDS, Nyoike, MissMaw, and me :) for the sigs!

He picked Graves against Caitlyn + Nunu. He didn't attack things enough to get True Grit going. He really would have been better off playing someone who didn't rely on auto-attacks to deal damage, perhaps Ez or someone who isn't so severely crippled by Ice blast.

But it's the afk Amumu that wrecked us. We were surprisingly strong in 4v4 teamfights.

True Grit + Buckshot = Awesome sustainy Graves. Except Nunu didn't allow Graves to get his passive up, or get close enough to deal damage to Cait with Buckshot. As such, it would have been better to pick a champion who didn't rely on their auto-attacks when compared to Graves.

Cait ***** on Graves. Nunu is just a steroid.
Thanks to Nyoike for the sig!

Graves Soraka seems like a poor lane against Cait Nunu to me. The only way to beat that **** is going in hard. Even if you survive the harass earlygame with Soraka heals you're gonna get outscaled anyway.

Graves actually does work against Cait if you have something like Taric or Leona.

I said True Grit like 50 times. And I also said 50 times that I was second pick Soraka and Graves picked last despite seeing the Nunu+Cait combo.

In that case, it's very hard to think of anything else that would've done any better. Perhaps Ezreal. (No one plays Urgot anymore anyway)
