Hey there !

Let me introduce myself shortly. I'm Flip-Flap, or Spyronne, a french player willing to get better at the game. I have arround 400 victories, and I think it's time for me to improvemy gameplay. So I decided to look for a main champion, and fell in love with Corki. I've always seen him as a very strong pick, but today, I see less and less players playing Corki at high elo, nor at my elo...

So here's my question, is Corki still a good adc ? If no, where can I play him ?
Even though it's been played yesterday in EU LCS, I'm still not really confident...

I don't see Corki benefitting a lot from the itemization changes in season 3.
He does have mana problems, having relatively short range I guess.

There are AD carries that are better.
He is still good and very playable at competitive scene.
His escapes and burst damage is soo good along with the poke.

Hey ! Thanks for taking the time to answer me !

Of course, he has mana problems. Considering that, I tried to build a Manamune on him. It looks like it makes sense on him, since he benefits from everything the item gives. Do you think it's a good choice ?

IMO Manamune is ok on Corki, it just gives less damage than, say, a trinity force.

Well I think you can't really compares these items anyway, since they don't cost the same at all. Though, about Trinity, is it still as effective now ?
I heard people saying Blade of the ruined king. Can I use it on Corki effectivly ?

Blade of the Ruined King isn't bad, for damage? I'd still tap into Trinity Force for that.

Thanks to the very talented The_Nameless_Bard

What the hell, Muramana is trash on Corki imo. If you ever read his kit, you'd know that all his abilities are AoE. It helps only his auto-attacks.

Corki has very high mana costs, but if you don't spam too much in lane, you'll be alright.
