League of Legends (LoL) Question: Is WW strong ATM?

    Is WW strong ATM?

    I have lots of success when I play Warwick and everyone tells me he's **** and that I must actually be good to play him currently. Where does Warwick actually stand in the current meta and if he is unfavourable why?

    Glaring weaknesses: Weak early clear. No Aoe. Only one CC tool late game. Susceptible to any sort of counterjungling. cannot gapclose without ult.

    He does have some pros though: Decent counterganks. Great ganks after 6 if target lane has good followup damage. Extremely hard to peel off. Sustains a lot in teamfights.

    I wouldn't recommend him though he's far outclassed by most junglers.

    What role are we speaking of? Jungle or top?

    Viability really does not matter at all in normal games.

    yeah but in normals people don't usually think to save the cc for the WW jumping on their carry. And not many people can 1v1 him.

    Slow (even though it is very well sustained) clear speed, weak ganks early game. 100% reliant on ultimate for gap closer, easily kited. If your ult gets interrupted quickly, you're pretty much useless.

    sorry I should've clarified I'm speaking jungle

    He has his weaknesses and can be counterplayed in 5v5 team by well played strategy but he is also easy to master and incredibly strong in many aspects. Soloqueue beast basically but there are few scenarios where he fades away.

    Here is guide of man playing only WW (Hes in Diamond ATM). He literally mastered him, after this guide i found WW much more viable. Check this guide, it is really worth it.

    WW is a very viable pick. The point is that he is a joker - a jack of all trades. You can count on him Top or Jungle and he will do what is need to. The point that all people say that he is bad or is useless is because they probably watch the streams where he is not very common to see. He is good - for me a really good champ. Can won you a lot of 1 vs 1 and do many chores. The problem is that people will try to get a champ that can do more than him with confidence on their skills. I will say ww is a good champ to start playing jungling, that can help a lot his teams in the solo games. But if you're going to use him in the competitive play... Leave it for Dom or Twisted Treeline. There he shines with his kit. Cause is most probable in summoner rift as the experience levels (leagues) go up you will find people that know how to counter him. He will end up doing chores like helping pushing or giving the buffs more than helping in team fights. He will probably kited . They will know that you will try to gank after level 6 and that you are a real treat if you got flash, because even with your ult as a gasp closer as you reach higher leagues the experience most times will save them. I got a bad experience with it like i reached bot and just as i landed my ult i was disrupted. And that a heavy lose to any warwick. Thats why people say he is weak. He lose a lot with out his ulti.
    In the end as a jungler with the new meta it may be better to take champs that can put more utility than he can bring to.
    I hope my humble opinion will help you a bit.

    P.D: He is the champ i used the most when i started, even used my rp to buy him a skin. And knew that he can be really good under a lot of situations. But it will depend a lot on the experience of the other team players with dealing with ww's.

    His buff is insanely strong in the right team comp, say teemo or diana as ap carry and an other attackspeed-lover top. Embracing and Vynertje pretty much covered is weak points.

    Actually i see a lot of warwick in toplane cause of sustain. He is quite viable once he gets his giants belt.
