It seems to me that he needs to be nerfed in some way. Insane damage, free cleanse, global ult, etc.

yes, Gangplank became OP once they changed his passive from DoT to a perma red buff. He's one of the top ban picks right now.

The only thing that should be changed imo is his Q. He can control the lane easily because his shot can take a half of your life in early game and you have to tower hug until someone come and gank or they break your turret.

I think GP's balanced now. He was OP with 5 stacks on his passive but with 3 he's balanced.

They nerfed him to a perfect spot. He was OP, but through 3 very minor nerfs, he's fine now. Very potent but in no way OP.

Thats not really possible. If he can shoot and deal 250+ dmg in one hit, theres no way to fight him, and theres his lanemate too. Maybe you can find a noob GP and just get fed, but its just a small possibility.

Lol? What champion are you talking about when you say, "there's no way to fight him." Because it can't be GP.

GP's easy to kill and his damage generally happens all at once or not at all.

He can't 1v1 as well as the majority of duelists, so if he gets caught by one he usually dies, and if you catch him with oranges on CD he dies for free.

He can't go into a teamfight when your opponents are full HP. They have to be low before he can safely enter to auto attack, and he prefers to be full HP when entering. He actually dies fairly easily if you build damage.

Tank GP sucks now since passive nerfs.

Actually support GP is being used by Rock Solid as of late and it's working really well for them.
