And.... doing really terrible. Yeah. Aphromoo starts playing him and yeah every pro in streams starts playing him. Every game I've viewed with Twitch in it, they're way in the negative and far behind the actually viable adc champs.




Tell me. Are the pros simply doing this so that Riot will fix the even worse version of Twitch? Honestly, give him his old Q W and R and he'll be back in business imo.

Why would he need any fixing? He's perfectly viable as an AD carry the way he is right now.

Among the ADC's out right now, he's trash. He'll easily get outclassed by an equally skilled player. He's got strong solo burst, but when a team fight breaks out, he's very easy to catch and kill. Either get ahead early and stomp the other team via Spray and Pray, or get stomped in lane and become non-existent.

his range with ult is ******ed, he got his invis and generally you'll pick a lot of peel when playing with a twitch - and you generally don't want to pick him too early I guess.
Not saying he is top tier but he is definitely fine right now

The huge downside to his ult is the fact that people can sidestep it. Even the person he's aiming at.

You mean like with every skillshot in the game?
Even Ezreals Ult has a Casttime and as long as he doesn't fire it offscreen you can dodge it quite well.

Hard to really say because I haven't seen Twitch in tournament play. Whether that's because players are perhaps trying to improve their skills with him so they can call him "tournament worthy" on their personal champion pool, or because a majority of the pro circuit don't think he's viable.

Honestly solo queue is not a bench mark of any means. I mean YES you can see what players are doing there, but until you see it in team scrims or actual tournaments you can probably assume that the players aren't "try harding". As far as I know Aphro really just started playing Twitch so he could get people to get him the medieval skin with referrals.
