Hey,

Asking a real noobish question that i'm not sure i can even phrase the right way. What I'm looking for are champs that "make plays" in games. Examples are like blitz w his grab, or lee sin making some clutch wall jumps and q's and whatnot.Like champs where playing well mechanically makes for some spectacular moves. For instance, with like....maybe yi, the difference between a decent yi and a great yi is noticeable, sure, but i mean, what's really the difference in gameplay? You know who to right click when.

Any opinions on champs like this would be great. Thanks :)

Game-changing plays go to Galio and Amumu because their ults can completely turn the tide of any game, any battle. They are well known for their abilities to do so.

As far as champions that make clutch plays, every champion. Seriously, in the right hands and with right timing (maybe even luck), anybody can make a great play to remember.

That's what I think too. Any champ can make great
plays, even the less spectacular healing from a support.

I agree, but I feel better about a perfect Fiddle ult, or some insane Fizz jukes than a perfect raka heal saving my carry. Of course it's still just as important, if not more, but it just doesn't feel as good o:

Though my personal best play was probably either on Vladimir, or maybe Urgot o:

I could be wrong about this, but I believe that Funk is asking about champions who can make plays, not change how a play is going. The word he is looking for is initiation? (Going by the two examples he gave). If this is what he meant, almost all the tank champions are good choices because they can soak up initial damage from abilities/carries (examples: Rammus, Amumu, Alistar) or someone with a hard or AoE CC (Ryze, Morgana, Blitzcrank).

More advanced teams use multiple champions to pull off combos like Malphite+Leona ult, Janna ult followed by a Jarvan trap, or Urgot switch with any type of stun.

If this wasn't what you were looking for then read some of the other posts ^_^

Orianna and Zyra are great examples. Orianna's interaction with some champs make for really interesting/smart combos, like Wukong going invisible, you place ball, both ulti and suddenly entire enemy team has suffered a powerful initiation.

But everyone can do it. Like you can be GP, get ganked underturret and with ulti, oranges and some juking + parley get kills or send people off (feels sooo goooooood)

The best person i can think of is Fizz. I've had some AMAZING plays with him. Once, i rann out of a bush at half health (don't ask me why) towards a full health Xerath, dodge the first Arcane Barrage with Urchin Strike, dodged the second and third with the two parts of Playful / Trickster, hit him with Chum the Waters, and walked off as Urf came up and ate him. Quick kill, zero damage to me, amazing jukes. I wish i had a video of it.
Hey, if you liked any advice i gave, be sure to +rep me! Oh, and check out my Shaco and Maokail lorecraft in my Blog! I'm a starving artist in need of attention, so please feel free to read, respond, and critique me! Please? Anybody that leaves a comment (good or bad) will receive a +rep!

Anyone that can move enemies/block them/move himself everywhere.

Against not very good opponent : heavy cc champs. Heavy in term of number (heil Nautilus) or aoe range.
