I've managed to beat Udyr and Irelia. They seem to have pretty good sustain ^^. Viktor's damaging spells have a low mana cost and pretty high damage and low cooldown. AFK sustain won't be enough.


U say u beat irelia.. when free irelia week comes i'll show u how to be beaten by irelia with ma lvl 1 eu-west smurf!
Ty MM and Blood for the sigs :3 | Rammus is comming back - heard it here first!

Irelia is average top lane, nothing special.

I really cannot imagine Viktor being any good against a competent solo top... any of the decent ones that spring to mind would beat him

Teemo basically can win top against a good chunk of auto attackers. But that's because he's ranged and has a blind. I don't think Viktor could be good top....He has no sustain, just harass.

I think he's good against certain match ups, certainly not all of them. He might be good vs teemo though.

Viktor is almost in an anti caster category because of his shield from Q. But he still just doesn't seem like a very good top. I'd have to play some more ACTUAL games with him to see what I think about his mana useage and stuff.

His Q gives him a great way to trade damage and also has a high damage/cost ratio. His Death Ray should be used more once you gain more AP. Usually I get Augment: Death to make it really punishing.

I think the death augment is really his only viable option in choosing a route to go. Overall Viktor just doesn't seem like he'd be a strong top. He can win trades, but against someone like Vlad the trade is nearly nullified. Chogath can just farm back the damage dealt to him same with some other cahmps. Tops have a few things that make them strong, durability/sustain/pushing power. Viktor doesn't really meat any of those in a prolonged engagement IMO.
