League of Legends (LoL) Question: Ezreal jungle

    Ezreal jungle

    Why is ezreal jungle so popular? I get that people love to copy LCS, but the guys in LCS LOST the game why would they still spam it so mutch?

    I had ezreal 5 times in my team and once in enemy and they lost all 6 games... why dont they play twitch jungle? If they want a OP adc jungle just pick him...

    EDIT: Yes Im starting to see succesfull ezreal jungle especialy with duskblade, one of the best champs to punish laners that push what is a great way to get ELO in solo que (I like rammus more tho)

    Ezreal as a jungler, in theory is quite interesting, mobility, high damage and splitpushing. The idea itself is not that bad, as it can blink and snowball lanes or steal objectives, people are just not used enough to make it work.

    But i've seen some Ez jungle work in my games, with and against me.

    Tbh, i cant see either of the advantages you pointed to be even over the average. He has only a combat mobility, or should we say kite, but not map mobility, like Udyr/Rek'Sai can have(or most melee junglers which just have slightly more MS); he doesnt have high damage b default and he is very restricted to execute a strong damage combo, because of skill shots, which can be blocked in various ways. Also where you see that split push potential? He can barely puch a lane properly better than any of the general split pushers, or even most adcs(MF/Twitch/Jhin/Trist and 80% of the ADC have better wave clear). He is also squishy as any ADC...His only chance is to be in the hands of super good player and snowball early.

    Very strong early ganks with red, can dual any jungler early, scales well lategame. All from his q buffs 2 patches ago :)

    Ez lvl 2 with red can 1v1 any jungler in the game

    Idk i can 1v1 him with any champ i can think of that in my kit ...
    i dont think he verry good for 1v1's

    I listened to your tips and did a 4min tower kill :))
    but was useless most of the game because I forgot trinity ;-;

    There's a couple reasons people take ezreal jungle. People wanna copy the LCS (Like you said), and i've seen it from personal experience, people in lower elo in general just think that they are better than they actually are, so they think, oh hey, this worked in the LCS, why won't it work for me, and usually end up feeding.

    I started to see good ezreal junglers, especialy if they get duskblade, I paly safe because I know he can just AA me to death untill I get under tower even if Im really close, but my teammates dont know that even when I warn them so I think the reason he is popular becuase he punishes people who are not prepeared and many of them are not in solo que

    Well, with twitch(early) yes you can do ambush and slow, but your gank will most likely fail if you opp is well prepared. With ez, you can do duel in enemy farm ez ly.

    It can be played, I see no problem with that. But Ezreal is a difficult champion to master because he is very skill shot reliant. Also against assassins and crit based champions he gets one-shotted easily. Depends on the enemy composition, I personally prefer to play Ezreal against tanky teams that ARE kitable in order to pick icebound. Also he depends on an early lead no matter how you play him.

    Edit: After trying it I am convinced, Ezreal Jungle is the new meta guys! Accept it!

    only success ive seen by the wave of EZ junglers are the ones who are just extremely good with the champ and can manage to snowball very early in game, thanks to tryharding, but im sure if they are as tryhard with any regular jungler, they would have double the success.

    Ezreal is generally a champion which is strongly dependent on early lead in order to snowball a game, yes before you say anything a good Ezreal player can not only snowball a game, but he can also set up team fights and win them. Right now Ezreal jungle makes the most use of his kit and abilities and creates a rather "safe" ganking environment to work in. There are several minuses in playing Ezreal jungle:
    1st: Can be counter-ganked easily.
    2nd: Requires some true skill to return from behind especially if you are playing Ezreal.
    3rd: Contrary to what some brainless people tell you, Ezreal is a high skill cap champion because he is fully skill shot reliant. If you also see some brainless people tell you that Riven is an easy champion to play then don't listen to them.
    4th: Land your ult in style kids and pop that LV7 mastery.
    5th: Being good with Ezreal is about knowing when you are strong, knowing how you scale in the early-mid-late game with the lead you have and some true skill in landing those skillshots consistently. A tip from me, you can measure that based on how much damage your Q is dealing to the enemy team, if you are ahead with 3 kills and their adc doesn't have kills....Let's see if you go tri-path you should deal some badass dmg and if you go icebound for the freeze you might take more than a quarter or half of their hp in one shot. Landing 3 shots on a carry means he is done for.

    Well, you clear red + blue + gromp and hit level 3 quicker than any other champion. Not to mention his mobility and high single target damage (if you don't miss his Q lol).

    Yeah Im starting to see succesfull ezreal jungle, maby I need to try it especialy because this is not a meta for Xerath AT ALL :)

    Ezreal jungle started in 2 areas, nightblue and korea. After ezreal got a lot of nerfs, it can't seem to find its position in the lanes. That's why the koreans that want to play Ezreal play it in the jungle, for it is mediocre in the other lanes. The people who are teamed with the ezreal jungle see how ezreal is good, or in other words they have an ezreal jungle on their team and they do pretty good!
    Potato Power (4) | September 20, 2017 1:17am
    Oh, so by what you said you want to say, no matter how bad nerfs he gets they love him too mutch to not play him so they found ez jungle :)

    I noticed that he is decent in counterganking but thats actualy it (my expirience)
    Arcthunder (9) | September 16, 2017 7:10pm
    If I had to take a stab, it would be because of nightblue3 and his killer game with Ezreal Jungle.
