Because every time I finish building The Black Cleaver and I'm losing I start building Trinity and 9/10 it helps me bring the game back. Then I throw in a Maw of Malmortius and I'm perfectly fine


hmm, could it be you're losing because Vi is trash tier????
Thanks for the Signature MissMaw!

I'm starting to think you just purely hate her. You must be a die hard Riven fan or just have some unknown you hate her. I can never think a champion like Vi as trash when she has tons of potential.
Made the signature myself :3

She's a trash laner, just sayin.

While she does have damage, she doesn't have a reliable way of doing it in lane because a large portion of it is contained in the easily predictable Vault Breaker.

She doesn't have a lot of tankiness because you're not going to be using either of her skills that often because that would mean pushing the lane to get your shield.

Basically, there are infinitely better top lane picks unless you're skilled at it.

Vi is a decent jungler but I find her underwhelming. There are a lot of champions who do what she does and better.

Here's the stats for Riven:

And here's Vi:

Riven does consistently better. I'm sure there's lots of different factors and whatnot, but something is making Riven win more than Vi.

What I see from those charts.

"Both champs are averaging about a 50% winrate, give or take a little, but Riven's is higher because, as a top lane, she has a larger impact at all stages of the game."


Thank you to jhoijhoi for the sig, and all the dividers in the guide.

Those stats also include pre-nerf Riven and pre-fix Vi. I'm not here to defend any of them, tbh, I sux at both anyway.
Thank you Tsuki for the sig!

Definitely get Riven. Vi is one of those champs where you are like "yeah, I guess I'll just muck around today" and you pick Vi. She's fun, not viable *IMO*

So much trashtalk about Vi on here, just play what you want. I think she's alright, not amazing but not terrible. Keep practicing and show everyone that she's the best if you feel that way. I played Mundo non-stop before he was even remotely fotm in s2. Everyone told me jungling him was dumb but look,he made it to the s2 world champ stage.
