I have gotten back into playing Skarner after we took a break from each other and am hating wasting about 70 games not playing him! He is amazing! I have not lost a game playing Skarner since I started using him again. I have pretty much carried everygame and out right owned. I also have found he is an amazing tank! 1v3'ed people and owned them all I got low after 2 so I ran and my team came and finished the third off. Is he under-rated? Or just under-played? Because I have think I have finally found my main champions :)

Not underplayed or underrated. A lot of people instaban him because he's so ****ing op right now. His early game is just farming, but when late game starts he just wrecks your team.

Grats on finding a main champion :D

He received a series of buffs that made him an extremely strong pick for a jungler in high level play. Some of his buffs were reverted, making him less appealing and that's why he's fallen out of favor (as far as I can tell). He's still a strong pick, just not as outstanding as he used to be.

Yeah he is just awesome right now, he's a massively strong jungle pick. I wouldn't say he's underrated at all. He might get a few nerfs soon. As for being underplayed, I would say he is, yeah. I haven't seen a lot of Skarners recently. I don't really know why.

I have played over 200 games and I probably have seen only one of them. I have actually been waiting to try him out, he is on my wish list.

I have Skarner. He is by far my best champion. I use him when I want an easy win and have way too much fun doing it. He may be a little OP, but I have seen too many people use him and fail. I play Skarner a way that most people don't and it works a hell of a lot better.

He isn't underrated, except by the few ignorant poor souls that haven't met a good one yet. I like to teach them a little about him. :P

People may start playing him right and realizing his power more and more, which may lead to a slight nerf yet again. Either way, I will never stop playing him.

The reason he is such a good jungler in solo queue besides from the obvious being able to prey on these out of position and having a fast clearing time is that he has such a small martian of error (aka really hard to make mistakes). I mean his only skill-shot is not even needed to pick up when jungling and in fact now being less mana efficient he's better off without it lol. They should really make it so that the slow is applied when Crystal Slash is used on a target marked with Fracture instead of just mashing Q all day long.

I rarely see people play Skarner unless I am playing him, but when I do see it, they are always pitiful in comparison.

They may not necessarily fail, they just don't really do much. At least half the time they are using him in lane...
