Pyke, Pyke, Pyke. Nothing I've Ever Hated More! Good Job Riot!

Alright, with the new release of pyke, many fans have had mixed emotions. He's a really weird champion as of now, and I'd like to share my thoughts on him. Okay, personally, I am not a fan of the champion. Personally, I hate him. Yes, I know the champion design team was taking a bold move, and yes, I understand they're just testing him out, but I don't particularly like this choice. So i guess this is "all the reasons I personally hate pyke, and wish for a nerf, or a rework immediately." 1: The sheer amount of damage he does. Once he get's ahead, even by the slightest, he's practically a god. His ult completely goes through shields, which I think is stupid, because nothing can save you except for a flash that probably won't even get you out of it. He also can basically 1v1 an adc. As a support main, it's so hard to keep your adc alive, that you practically can never roam because of the sheer damage output he can do. 2: Fucking over your own adc. Since pyke can not choose who the your cut goes to, if the midlaner or jungler is coming to your lane very often, the adc is indeed in a bad spot, most likely not getting a "your cut". Since I do tend to sometimes fly over to adc sometimes to check stuff out, I can tell you, having a pyke support sucks. 3: Resets. A support easily getting a penta, and no one on your team can do anything. i have a friend who wants to main pyke because he completely destroys things that once had a hard time being destroyed. Darius, Riven, ADCs in general. He got a penta recently, and i'm already sick of it. He just pressed R a few times, with nothing more than a bit of aim. What the ****? 4: his kit. Aside from the utter bullshit that is his ult, when he hit the rift, I've only been able to uncover 1 counter. That would be naut. {{champion:111}} But it's still hard to pull off. His Q is a bullshit hook, the range being absolutely disgusting, and when it's close range, pulling you over his head. Who thought that was a good idea? His W I don't have a huge problem with, so we can skip that, and his E is kind of a stretch. i don't think his kit needed it, but i don't completely despise it like his Q and Ult. i've even tried morg shields to block Q's, and it worked, but I still had a hard time just dealing with his damage. 5: An assassin is an adc's worst night mare, and you put it in their lane? Rito, please, this was a bad mistake, and I'm hoping you'll fix it. Make him AP or something, because I'm sick of this champion! - A rioter who wants to quit the game.{{sticker:slayer-jinx-unamused}} edit: I've tried sona, but he kills her, janna is too squishy, and his ult goes straight through shields. The only thing that works against him is tanks. I figured that out after playing against pyke for 9 straight rounds. I will say, yeah, his damage is high, and it is kind of weird, but I really don't like him yet. Assassin support kind of makes things weird in the lane, and it feels like im playing a new lane, but not in a good way. Lulu ult is a weird one, i'd say, because her ult is almost hard to do. So i'd put lulu down if lulu is alive before he uses the ult. he destroys squishy things, and since his ult goes through shields, janna is useless. Idk about her ult pushing him back, because if he clicks execute, it still goes through. Zhonya's could work, true, and idk about sterak's. I'll test that out. So yeah i did some stuff last night, messed around with the champ, picked through stuff, looked at abilities, gameplay, and counterplay, and I can say he's not as big as a problem as I made it sound. He's easily countered by tanks, though i'd love his ult more if it didn't go through shields. I guess what i'm saying is squishies aren't the best! T_T I'd say the counters are:{{champion:44}} {{champion:12}} {{champion:201}} {{champion:111}} {{champion:223}} {{champion:117}} {{champion:89}} can work. And items like: {{item:3026}} {{item:3157}} {{item:3053}} {{item:3075}} and any item with heavy armor can help. Things like {{champion:432}} {{champion:40}} {{champion:43}} {{champion:37}} {{champion:16}} may have a worse time against him. I want to do an update on janna. Idk how the ult works against pyke, so we'll see. But her shield is useless {{item:3070}} .
