I see no reason to not just play 2-3 other champions that do pretty much the exact same thing.


You realize everything you say here also describes Darius...

I believe I mentioned him in my original post.

Darius deals with those problems a lot easier better imo

His hook is fatal and he has a lot of cleanup potential in flat out fights. I don't think Illaoi can be said the same. But then again I don't play Illaoi enough. One of my masters friends is convinced she's sleeper op in specific comps, though.

That's my point; if Darius is open, then there's no reason to pick Illaoi.

I've played a large number of Darius and a good number of Illaoi. Illaoi is just way too frustrating to play.

Even in team fights where it's supposedly her biggest strength, if an enemy has displacement or even a snare, you can bet you're dealing no damage that fight (your W is a displacement and is countered by snares). She also has this point in the late game where you find your self scaling off really hard. Darius doesn't have that scaling off curve, not as much as Illaoi, and he's still a threat in most cases.

Darius isn't better at everything, but he's better at most things that makes him the superior pick. Illaoi is better at asserting lane dominance once she has it because if you gank her and you're melee, one mistake is an easy double kill for her. She is suspectible to ganks, but not as much as Darius is in my experience.

Darius isnt playing man vs mechanics though. He can easily 1v2 if he's laning hard enough and his sustain isnt dependent on AI.

Darius has to be quite ahead to do so, Illaoi, not as much.

I feel like killing Illaoi is easier that killing Darius in ganks but it's also easier to get 1v2d as well
