Is he, i have been seeing him played a lot in the last tournaments, i was also thinking if i should buy him. What do you think? (im probably using the Fotm adjective wrongly)
Some say he watched the lord of the rings sixty twelve times and he was pissed off at gandalf for stealing his idea for a halloween costume. all we know he's called McLovin.

FotM means that he's used a lot in lower ELO play. However if he is being used a lot in Pro games then he could become FotM much as Ashe did after TSM won that one championship with her. It usually correlates, but I never see gragas so I doubt that he'll be FotM.

Thank you Miss Maw, CasterMaster and Arcana3 for the sweet sigs. I'd definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a nice sig.

In my Opinion No because he needs to have a very skilled player under him so he won't end up f***** up more then helping but if you're really good with him well Im just gonna say these two Words

Gragas's strength is in his bulk, his lane sustainability and his Ult. Having a natural bulkyness about him allows him to take a few hits from the opposite AP mid, but not too many, which will force the other laner to use abilites on minions for last hits instead of harassing. Drunken Rage allows gragas to spam his Barrel Roll a lot more often than what one might expect, and his ultimate can separate the opposing team so that you allies can easily swarm single targets, or to better position your foes.

Gragas is outclassed in all of these traits. Janna and blitz displace better, Champions with natural sustain do it better because they get health back instead of mana usually, and mana others are far more bulky when it comes to being able to take a punch. But the fact that gragas can do all of these, albeit at a mediocre level, makes gragas a good, but not great, champ.

I see him more often and moans everytime I lane against him.

He wont kill you if you're careful but he'll dominant laning phase,he's practically unkillable because of body slam. He farms and harasses afar with Barrel roll,which really HURTS. With two dorans or blue he can lane forever, 4 or 5 cd and low mana cost e lets him abuse his passive, tho the hp regen is not much, is still more than most ap carries without natural spell vamp.

His ultimate only has about 60 seconds cd iirc he can use it whenever he sees the opportunity and use it again the next time u see him.

I played as gragas during free week, this guy's a monster. The only reason that keeps me from buying is he's too bulky :P

The thing is- He's only useful (IMO) in Solo-Q where people are very disorganized and not that good, or in pre-made 5s like you see in tournies. He either needs stupid/unskilled opponents or great teamwork. Just look at his damn abilities.

Q- Very good ability IMO. Good for zoning, the damage is nice, etc.
W- Useless outside of the laning phase
E-An okay ability. Its main use is for an escape
R- A decent, displacing AOE ult. Has a great ratio (1.0) and the CD isn't too bad.

He only has two abilities that he can use really for tons of the damage. On an AP caster thats not something I want. You want a fully useful kit. I'm not going to be using E in a teamfight unless I'm chasing someone down, escaping or if they surprise me and get in my face. His W I already elaborated on.

His bulk lets him be forgiving so thats a + I guess.

I'm not trying to say he's a bad champion in any way- He's been fun to play, even all the way back when he was a bruiser champ.
