    I have only watched untiil the middle. This video is so stupid. This video makes low elo players hardstuck. I started playing LOL 1st time in April 2020 and watched literally all of a macro god challenger player's shared coachings (from top lane) and because of him, i started playing Garen. Before his videos, i was actually bot main with winrate of 15%, in BRONZE! I switched to midlane, cuz i didnt wanna listen to him saying i should main Garen... Mid winrate 30%........ I was literally stuck in Bronze 3 for months. Then i switched to top, Garen... Without any private coaching yet (i will do so in a few days) and the reason i want those coachiings is cuz i win my lane 80% but i cant carry and thus we still lose the game. I even started banning junglers INSTEAD of Garen's counterpicks just in the hope my team would win more often.... That is the power of garen. You NEED garen if you wanna climb out of low elo. As of now, i hold with garen a 60-70% winrate. And, i ended s10 in GOLD 2! Literally in 4 months maining garen top/mid lane. Now, hows that for "the worst champ of the game"? This is the most retarded video ive ever seen online. Also, considering most people are below diamond and there are many challengers playing Garen, even in D1 and still OWNING the game.

    Your video is so full of fluff to fucking waste time for ad views, reiterating the same fucking statements over and over instead of explaining why, excessive pauses, using cutscenes to stall time. Why not try reading at half the speed as well? That'll turn it into a 30 minute video! Win-win!

    Fast forward to 2020, Garen has been revamped so many times than even his current iteration is still powerful. How powerful? He can be played safe even when buying an ASPD item first, so much so that it's best to haste Trinity first even when fighting Teemo.

    As a portuguese you shouldnt really take our league championship seriously, we're as bad or worse than the brazilleans or the legendary female teams that no longer exist, but hey i guess it made the records....

    In my opinion when you said that pros prefer new champs over old ones is true but some champions like tryndamere,jax,master yi are good as hell but if you don't know how to play them you are kinda useless

    I started playing 2020 so I was like wtf is that guy saying garen is absolutely broken. But I understand now he was buffed. I don't see much of him in the current worlds probably cause he is braindead and really doesn't have that longass phd level effects on his passive and abilities unlike the others.

    of course garen would in the brazilian region lmao you cant make this up great video!

  • CarKeyNosGR

    It's actually a low elo champion but very good for player who doesn't have many Toplane picks to play and it's always a safe pick even against the worst matchups... Trust me garen learned many bad players how to be better and that is a very good thing for a champion... Not a competitive champion it still very useful one for new players... Most of us learned the game with garen, yi, ashe, ryze and jax

    • Dragonlord350

      @Xavier CHARLES yes of course u wait for his abilities. When he farms with q etc. 1. He attacks u He q. So now u can stun or slow him. Because his w does only give tenacity when he press it before the stun or slow. When he q and w then u wait 2 sec for his tenacity to drop and then stun or slow him. He maxes w very late. U can punish him also very hard because he has no shield. 2. U attack him. U just wait for his q. When u do it correctly then there is no way he can react to it in Time an press w. When u are to aggressive when u have half live and he has lvl 6 then i can do nothing for u. U always respect someone if he Hits lvl 6 before u. And yes there are Champs that are weak against him but there are also Champs that are very strong against him. So u have to know if u can play agressively in the beginning.

    • Xavier CHARLES
      Xavier CHARLES

      @Dragonlord350 what do you mean cc? you stun him he press W and gains tenacity, you slow him he press Q and just runs away, he decides to go on you you're silenced and his conqueror gets up to 12 in 2 secs thx to E, you're 50%hp and if he has ignite and/or ult you are dead, i'm sorry but if there's any counterplay then the window to do it is really small, and it's really up to him to missplay very hard for you to get away with your life

    • Dragonlord350

      @Xavier CHARLES let garen be strong. Mimimi spin OP........ U know that it is really easy to predict what garen does. Really easy to outplay with mobilty and cc. So pls dont say he is to strong lol. There are wayyyy more stronger Champs out there. If u lose against garen then YOU did something wrong. Played wrong to agressively Missed farm Etc. A Champ dont have to be weaker than others because he doesnt need mechanical skill. That is also his weakness, because u know he just runs straight at u. Yes he is a Fighter so it is his role to be a good 1v1 champ

    • Xavier CHARLES
      Xavier CHARLES

      @Alex Koskelin i don't think he needs any reworking of his abilities, but i mean if i could stack conqueror as fast as garen does with E, i'd be happy xD

    • Alex Koskelin
      Alex Koskelin

      @Xavier CHARLES yeah, but Singed is also in need of some buffs/reworking

    I could have sworn that TSM picked Garen as a troll pick in season 1 or 2 because they were up a few games and could afford to throw one. I'm 100% sure of this. They still lost, though.

    the fact that you used Hopes and Dreams at the end of the video lol

    Did really in season 9 in competitive play EVERY SINGLE CHAMPION was either picked or banned atleast once (except garen)? That seems highly unlikely

    When a Garen can build trinity force then pure tank item (no ad except tri force. Legit full tank) and can finish a game with 30k on the damage charts. That's when I call BS. He's too broken now.

    The one thing people have to realize is that a champion can still be good, op or even broken WITHOUT having a high win rate. Yes, there are champions that can do Garen's job better, I am aware. But he's still insanely busted right now, despite his "low win rate". When Garen can build exactly ONE COMPONENT of an item (this being Phage going into Trinity Force as the meta suggests for him now) at level 6 and deal 40% of your hp on a Q, then finish off the last 60% with his E.... that's grounds for a nerf, 100%. Another good example is looking at people's winrates on certain champs. Yes, people can have a low winrate, like my Akali with 38% (or something like that). I admit, I have my bad games/matchups where I don't perform as well as I should, but when I have those hypercarry games where I absolutely STOMP and play Akali like a badass, the "low winrate" I have on her doesn't do my exact skill level with her any justice. It's for that reason that basing the balance changes and entire meta around winrate as most of the deciding factor, especially in a game like League, is a remarkably stupid idea. Win rate never has been, and never will be the "Be All and End All" of balance changes for any game like this. Take a good hard look at DOTA, which is arguably the most balanced MOBA in existence right now. I can almost guarantee that winrate isn't the most important thing with that one. Please stop basing all of your so-called "facts" about champs and players around win rate. There are more factors that play into win rate than just "this champ is good/bad, and played/not played". SO much more.
