As someone who played League at the very beginning, I can say for sure that when Garen was released, he was absolutely overpowered with some tank items and a sunfire cape for quite some time. The same was true with Tryndamere. Tryndamere could easily 1v3 people once his build was complete. It was absolutely insane. Around the time they nerfed Sunfire Cape, Garen started to fall off, and sadly he never fully recovered.

Garen used to be great with Atma's Impaler and stacking health, and that Garen won't be slowed which i feel is something that should still be around. When Garen came out, since there was no real idea on how to counter him, his ultimate was considered absolute bullshit. It was impossible to get away from Garen, and harder to kill him

Cameron Smiljan
Cameron Smiljan

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.

Like many early LoL concepts, Garen was ... loosely based on Dota hero Juggernaut (juggernaut kinda split into two LoL champs in Garen and Yi) and never saw any real reworks. It makes sense that Garen (and AD Yi) was never viable. A very low mobility melee carry simply doesn't work in LoL.

Sooo...yes, Garen is pretty bad, even in solo Q, hell, even in normal. And back then, we really didn't have BS broken, overloaded, "200 years" champions, like we have now.

It's funny because as a low elo player (yeah whatever, I'm bronze) I see "noob" picks like Tryndamere, Garen, etc picked all the time and they win so so many games. Honestly, it's like RIOT's usual nerf/buff plan but in reverse. Usually they buff/nerf champs all based on pro-play, but seeing as trynda and garen aren't ever used in pro play, they have to do changes based on us casual's play and they both do well in Bronze and Silver and potentially Gold.

Thanks to Garen's mini rework, you can do this, Garen + Infinity Edge + Yummi = A walking nightmare for tanks and adc xD. This Garen is a winner now xD.

@Rain As Ian mentioned, the only time when Garen was played in tournaments is at year 0 when the game was still very new and there was still no lane meta like adr+support bot, bruiser top, mid, jungle, etc. and Garen was still very very very strong. You should just really finish the video already, there's a twist in the end

You say sol has the highest win rate. Yet 2 seconds earlier you said tryndamere has won 3 out of 4 games, therefore giving him the highest win rate with 75%

Except he was probably talking among the champs who've actually been played legitimately in pro play. As in fitting into a meta where they played more than 4 games.

Pretty sure it was S1 (not championship) where Garen was picked in one of the tournaments. I remember clearly he started an AD item and Q'd a Cho'gath at lvl 1 for 75% of his health and the casters were just like "Well that's Garen for you". Pretty sure they (the Garen) won that game.

I still remember the moment I realized I was ready to retire from League. Late season 3 (I know, I'm old). Garen crit strike build. Not only did I not get sauced, we won that game. I don't know if the meta's shifted but crit strike was useless on Garen at the time...though tbf it was solo queue which, as you said, is a whole different ball game. But I never had aims at a competitive career, so when I pulled that off I knew I'd hit my peak, lmao

That's just freaking awesome. Garen is one of my favorite picks in the top lane. I find it crazy how just before you finished the video that somebody picked him AND WON of all things. Couldn't have been better timing.

Teemo offers good vision control and pairs well with Cait. Support or Top Either going ult CDR on Kills or trink CDR on kills then getting blue trink. One sets up more shrooms but makes him much more mana hungry because of it but if you get less cdr on Blue thrinks. You can place them in the jungle of either side and staying till cleared out makes it harder for the other team to try to rotate with out your team knowing about it. Ignoring his shrooms can lock down river and force the other team in getting items just to deal with the shrooms. Problem is, is you have baron on lock down and hanging in the area and even pinked it, so they don't know if you are baiting or taking. With your team right there it's hard for them to focus on removing your traps. Over all making it "run through and get hit with ok damage and a massive slow." or "waste time clearing at the risk of being too late." So team fight wise that happens in the jungle and not in the mid lane. He can be rather scary as a more supportive pick. Even if he is not support.

Garen isn’t meant to be played here, he is exclusively a welcome to the game champ, and one that also says, no matter what, no matter how bad, you can still at least play Garen.

Yeah. Part of what makes him good as a learning champ is you really have to get good at macro, wave management, and knowing when to take fights. If you take bad fights you will lose every time.

I watched this vid on 2020 april 23th. I think this video was made before the Garen Yuumi meta. I think you should have mention the Fiora curse. Both Garen and Trynda are useless in proplay but they are very good in soloQ specialy in low elo. Their kit isn't viable for competitive but they are very good to play and learn the game.
