I mean champs that aren’t there for team fighting, aren’t there to farm montages and kills, but are there to win the bloody game by popping towers and the nexus. I don’t necessarily mean “split pushing,” as that term itself causes people to vomit blood, I mean champs that don’t need kills to shred objectives.
Basically a “hard-carry” but who hard-carries objectives instead of kills and “lcs outplays.”
I find almost all of my games that I win involve me taking the initiative and taking towers down while my team is farming kills mid like 2004 “road bads” in warsong gulch. I rarely ever see a jungler do anything but “gank” lanes like reddit “wisdom” demands, leaving every objective as free.
So what would you describe as good champions to focus objectives on? Don’t need many kills, don’t need to try to show off or fight, but you actually contribute to the only thing that matters here: objectives.
I just don’t care about the kill-centric, “PRO PLAY GIVE ME MONEY AND REDDIT GOLD!” meta of this game when it is totally the opposite of what you need to win. hots had the “specialist” class specifically for this back when that game wasn’t murdered into being a lol clone.
I find that both jinx and ad kai’sa are masters at this, but adc has possibly the least impact on the game.
twisted fate does this better than anyone but he is so frustrating if your team has been eating paint.
crit akshan is great, but still requires a team that knows what they are doing.
gragas tank is great for this but not an enjoyable kit or look.
olaf tank can do this even as top lane.
