Everyone Is Spamming Tahm Kench Top For Free Wins In Solo Queue
Today, let's talk about Tahm Kench Top Lane. Plenty of challenger players and top laners have been abusing TK for quite some time. Lets go over the history of league of legends for tahm kench top lane as well as look at his builds and runes. Tahm kench top lane is one of the best op top laners for patch 9.11 and for patch 9.12. Tahm kench easily makes the tier list for top lane.

      I have been playing a lot of Morgana jungle. This pick may seem troll but really it is quite strong. With this build in most cases I max Q and W compleatly skipping over my E. I know Morgana's black shield is by far one of get best abilities though as a jungler in most cases it is not needed until later into the game. How ever if the enemy team has a lot of CC I will put 1 point into this spell. Morgana has quite decent jungle clears and extreamly healthy jungle clears. Infact morgana can face tank ruptures level 1 and not lose hp. The build for this can change game to game. If they have a pesky tank then lyandris is extremely useful and allows you to shred tanks. I tend to build her as i build Eve. I focus jungle item followed by sorc boots and oblivian orb this gives you a lot of dmg! The best part of Morgana jungle is her ganks. If you gank a lane that has CC then it is almost always a free kill. Binding to follow up your team mates CC with a full duration pool makes for insane damage. Another great thibg about Morgana's binding is the fear of being binded. When ganking as morgana it is usually best to hold onto binding as long as you can. In most cases the enemy will try to juke your binding and juke them self to death. If they decide to not try and juke then they die to binding anyway. Ether way they are in a bad situation. On top of all this lane pressure you can creat a lot of junglers see a morgana and think this is easy invades and try to bully you out of your jungle. This is VERY VERY WRONG! As I mentioned earlier Morgana actually has very healthy clears. So if you are beibg invaded odds are you will be close to full health. And as long as you land your binding you are almost garanteed to win the 1v1. If somehow you are not able to win the 1v1 or you simply are low health for what ever reason landing a Q will allow you to almost always get away. This is a great pick over all and made even better then duo with your top or mid. For example if you play with a malz every time his ult is off cooldown it is 100% a guaranteed kill. Infact any CC will almost always guarantee a kill. Even when against a tanky top laner your base damage on Q and W are extreamly high. This is why I tend to skip E in most games. I have been doing this in mid diamond, so not top tier but also not in low elo games.

  • Jonas Kircher

    Tahm Kench however is not easy as a toplaner, because while he cannot be 1vs1 pushed out of lane, it is so easy to gank him. He is very slow with no dash and no good cc to help him escape apart from a single target slow. That means when 2 people are running him down a long lane, he will easily die, his grey health only delaying the inevitable. He has some decent tools to manipulate the waves so that they will stay in the middle of the lane and he can trade into a stacked wave of enemy minions but if the toplaner he is facing has a good gank setup he will struggle. I actually like playing Cho into Tahm, you will never win trades but you can set up free ganks, you can stop him from using his grey health with your silence and then simply execute him with ult, Cho can farm from range with q and can trade his hp for cs if he has to plus it's not easy to dive him, so Tahm can barely punish you. Cho will heavily outscale Tahm in terms of teamfight usefulness but his max hp gain mean that he will not win sidelanes, even later on so be warned if Tahm catches you alone, dont try to fight, just run. You will be tanky enough to run for like 30 seconds and give your team time to help you. :D

    Fought a tahm as Garen he was gold IV I'm iron1. He kept doing bitch shit so I did the same held my 1st tower for 30mins with him and the jg attacking me I'd die I see my tower. He'd die under my tower and eventually my team won the game while he was trying to take my tower they lost me but the enemy team lost thier jg for not farming and constantly trying to tower kill me and occasionally die too XD

    I really want a support tahm kench buff. Maybe nerf his Q damage and give it a longer cooldown but to buff him they should make it where when he W's a teammate he is not slowed at all but he still can't use flash.

      Even after all that, his hit box is still relatively big, and he's still a very big lane bully..more often than not you can 1v2 the jungler and the laner during ganks or at least kill one, plus his ult and w are just great. I mained him after the release and after getting used to the changes, I still main him now

    I think I have never seen such a stupid team working on a game before i was interested in League. Trying to equilibrate the value of a champion who is made to be played in team, so that he will not be strong in those situations and stronger in solo q is just the worst thing I've heard in a long time. The problem isn't the strenght of akali, qiyana or ryze in solo q. It's the solo q itself. The concept of it is just an aberration of the game. Making the possibility of playing alone with people you don't know in a game where coordination is 60% of the victory and where a poorly skilled mate can cost a game is obviously stupid. But way less players will be interested if this wasn't implemented, so why not throw away the quality of the game for some F****** money? At the end, they are facing the same problems as the MMOs. They make money on a fanbase that wish to play in team but want's to be alone while doing so.

  • Zephyrod

    It’s actually funny, because facing a Kench toplane is always a free win for me. I autolose lane, and will probably be down a lot of CS and maybe die once or twice, but he becomes incredibly useless later on somehow. You don’t fight him solo, you just play around him

  • FlynnWinch

  • PerfectChaoX

    Somehow managed to deal with him after going 2-11 top as Udyr. Could literally do nothing against him. Early that is. By the time I managed to get my Trinity and frozen heart all that attack speed and eating of his was kinda meaningless. He doesnt seem to be able to burst you so ignoring him after dying a few times and just pushing is the only way for you to do something useful. Still there is literally no counter play. Even if you never die early, he will still dive by the time he reaches level 5. Even getting ganks wont help. Just tell your jungle to help the other lanes win and pray he doesnt take your tower early

    Did Tahm vs Morde post reworks when I was experimenting on Morde builds. Shit, that went terrible. I was running a q into E max build with After Shock hoping to force people close and pummel them while taking low damage. It worked in theory. Tahm bloody well W and I lost every time. Which is my problem. I think part of why he does so much is because the W is a large percent max health attack. If we fiddled with it a bit...

    Want to counter Tahm with even more broken champ ? Yorick is here. From a Jax main with 500k points now I am going to change to Yorick. This champ is broken. Dealing both magic dmg and physical dmg. And don't forget his % dmg from the Maiden and the E.

    "Not really hard to play" - are u srs? That champ is freakin braindead. A stupid unfair antifun champ. U dont even need to farm properly on that champ bcoz ur freakin tank items are super cheap. Just walk up to the enemy and deny the farm from the enemy and you win the lane. If you walk up he kills you. Even if you go for a really good trade he will just regen his HP with dorans shield/cor potion and his E passive. I dont really care if Im winning my games, but playing against is so antifun I get already tilted in champ select. The worst part is that even if I ban that braindead champ there are many other OP/borderline OP champs that stay in the pick pool (like Morde, Aatrox, KaiSa - also braindead with the manamune build, Sivir - another braindead champ that auto wins lane, freakin Karma - another overbuffed support champ abused Toplane, Talon - easiest to play assassin in the game, Lux Support - oh dear, support items have way to much mana sustain, just spam your abilities brainless, something will hit) The worst part is that a lot of the OP/borderline OP champs right now are super easy to play. Imagine once they get nerfed and people switch to champs - fiestas everygame bcoz people climbed not bcoz of improvment of skill, but bcoz of abusing easy to play champs.

    It's clear to me that riot doesn't know the first fucking thing about balancing their champs. They can't even identify the most basic of issues with their kits nor can they restrain themselves from completely gutting champs while ignoring the ACTUAL issues with the champs. It's just incompetence and arrogance mixed together to make a completely unmanageable roster of champs.
