Every game comes down to who has 4/5 tanks/brusiers, assassins building stridebreaker, goredrinker instead of actual damage, that's how far down we are into tank meta...

I can't believe people think it isn't tank meta when kat, akali, tryn, talon, rengar etc are typically going gore/stride.

we are seeing a shift due to youmuus buffs
people are still going goredrinker on rengar and talon but they rush youmuus, then buy goredrinker most of the time

More like bruisers/assassins using tank items, rather then tanks dominating everything and being unstoppable gods.

A bruiser with goredrinker + steraks is tankier than a full build tank. So is an adc with shieldbow. Or an Irelia with vamp sceptre. Tanks are worthless.

yeah idk people say they prefer tank meta to assassin meta and ill never understand it

The difference between the two is that in an assassin the person one shotting you can also be one shot. In a tank meta the person one shotting you can't actually be one shot themselves :D

it's because adc players don't know how to play the game when they actually have to deal with people in melee range as opposed to slowly whittling away at their giga tank that can never touch them
LoL is better than hell? What a joke. LoL is hell itself. There's no hope to be had in it - nothing but absolute despair.

I don't get how it's a tank meta when Tanks still fold like tissue paper

Like sure, Tanks can deal damage but why? I'd much rather be able to jump into a teamfight, get 5 knockups and draw enemy attention before having to get out

Nowadays I can jump in and get exploded instantly, the point of tanks is to force the enemy to blow their CC, not have to wait for the enemy to blow their CC before going in like an assassin

You don't find it suspicious that both the best toplaners and the best midlaners are also the champs who sell the most skins? Fiora, Irelia and Katarina sell more skins in a day than Poppy, Azir and Veigar sell in a year

It's not a tank meta. The meta just evolved from people running very high burst champions, so the natural thing happened: people play the same champions but build them so that they can survive the burst.

Basically, Assassins are becoming bruisers. Damage is so f***ing high this season everyone needs to build tank.
