: Tank jungler means relying on your team too much. That's not great for low elo soloq where you are looking to carry your games. Just pick K6 or Heca and carry your self to a better place where tank junglers are viable because your team knows to play around them.

I did forget Heca when i listed the champs I like to jungle with. Never done J4 which I honestly want to try. But in ELO Hell it is so hard to get out with alot of the other tanky jungles. Granted my que partner hit Gold and i'm in Bronze so i'm having to soloQ right now. Thanks for the advice will deff try it out.
: This is 2019. No more than 1 tank is allowed to be playable at a time. No for real. It doesn’t matter how much they buff tanks. The rampant %anti tank crap that is already hyper efficient just makes them irrelevant no matter what. It doesn’t matter how much armor you build, when someone has almost 10% of their damage ignore it, then ignores another 49% of it, it just will never compete.

In all honesty I agree and don't agree with you. The domain of the tanks has been taken over by the domain of the bruisers and the anti-tank. I do agree with that. Playing a tank jungle or support is very easily countered. However one of the other issues I have seen is that people don't know how to play along side a tank jungle or tank support. Have the patience to allow them to do their job and their role while still doing theirs. But I digress this is just my personal experience. Others may share this experience or disagree an that's ok.
: It's a strategy used by many. If I see some guy all typing I'm going to camp his lane. He's going to tilt even more and afk sooner or later and it will be freelo.
As a jungler this is my favorite tactic. Say nothing in chat and just sit there and be relentless with the typer. Also with top lane you can tell how much you made them tilt by how quick the teleport happens after the first kill on them.

Top When it comes to jg , Tanks sucks because other junglers are just better
Really? I have to 100% disagree with that statement. Tank junglers are actually very strong if you know what you are doing and have somewhat decent lanes that don't fall on their face in the first 7-10 minutes. Or scream relentlessly for ganks because they don't understand how a tank jungler works. To many people rely on early ganks to win lanes. Sometimes that doesn't happen. And 90% of low ELO players won't try to invade or they will fail invade a tank jungler. Amumu, Poppy, Naut and Sedj are all tank junglers. You saying all those suck? In my experience late game tank junglers have more influence over the outcome of the game if your lanes don't fall apart pre-10 minutes. This has been my personal experience playing from the jungle. So data set is limited. My point about Maokai needing another look is he used to be a very strong jungler. He is now nothing but a top lane figure head. But this is all my personal opinion. I play jungle, top, bot/support. I have yet to see Maokai in ranked or on draft. Why is this? Why is his stats on op.gg say 100% top. His jungle percentage is gone! MAKE MAOKAI GREAT AGAIN! hahaha...couldn't resist

: Previous maokai was a mix between a tank and a bruiser; He had an ult that screamed ' im a tank ' but a kit that screamed ' im a bruiser '. The current maokai is a solid bruiser, with a kit that screams "IM A BRUISER". That being said.... Saplings need to deal 80/120/140/180/220+0.4AP + 20/25/30/35/40% slow in an area around them on impact. Maokais saplings are honestly the least fun part of his kit because they have no actual value outside of position punishing, and even then they can be easily outplayed by just walking away. Another helpful thing would probably be to just remove the arming time if you hit someone with the sapling. That would also really help.
I personally feel that removing the "I'm a tank" aspect of him removed a great deal of who he is. And the saplings are GREAT for jungling. But with his "I'm a bruiser" in his current setup jungling is not as effective IMOP. But it destroyed what made him great in my eyes. Not everyone is going to agree like I said but that's why I made the post. Was wondering what those who play him think. What position do you play him in?

: I feel like if I play anything other than Trundle, I cannot do anything to Maokai. He's a god tier pick on 3v3 right now.
Almost forgot 3v3 existed. I only play Rift and ARAM. Don't really care for the 3v3 format personally. But that is interesting to know he's good on 3v3.

This is an option. In the end his ult is still meh and I do not believe that his "R" fits with who he is. His old ult had a ton of utility and depending on how you used it determined how powerful you could be. Building tank made sense with his old ult and as the OG treeman tank was a legit build. Now his utility as a tank has been greatly diminished IMOP. I think
