This is less of a 'which champion should I buy next' post and more of a 'I'm new at this game an would like the opinions of people that know more about this stuff than me post'. I'm just curious as to what the differences in play styles are, what roles they fill, which works better in a typical team comp, etc.

Tryn is AD carry. Builds, 9 times out of 10, full damage/crit chance so he does damage fast.
GP is, despite what RIOT labeled him as, a tanky DPS. Sure you can run full damage but you will blow up in teamfights.
Tryn is full on aggressive. GP, not so much.

I don't know much more than this so I'll leave it to others to explain more.

Tryndamere is AD carry. His role is to shutdown enemy champions fast and if they don't know how to counter him, hes godlike. Gangplank on other side is more like your initiator in team fights. Even thou he can be built as tank, he will still do good damage with his Q(if you're going for Atma's or any item with crit chance), has free cleanse, team wide buff and initiate kind of ultimate. Both can be played top or jungle.

Don't hate, it's too big a burden to bear.

I play Tryndamere as total AD Crit. i stack phantoms and take a couple AD iteams. Gangplank is more like that guy who you can really change depending on the game. If you need Gangplank can be a really good tankish person. he can also on the other hand be a really good AD carry.

They both work well. And I totally go crit-plank not tanky dps. Tryndamere is more forgiving imo for new peeps cuz he has a built-in flash and obviously his ult is nice and he can heal. GP heals blow unless u go ap. But they are both great. I think they both work best as crit damage champs. Both will one shot minions late game.

P.S. GP is FAR more flexible. He can be played many ways...I just think crit is the best personally. Now if you had trynd and gp in same team comp I might not go crit plank...
