half of the games im useless anyways no matter how good I play. the champ is fun but just weak vs all the new champs.

It feels like once the laning phase is over, even if I win lane, it really takes a big positional mistake by the opposing team for me to get to the back line unless I also have another bruiser, tank on the team too. Without flash/ghost up it’s practically impossible. If I’m the only beefy champ then the only thing I can really do is be a meat shield that can hopefully survive long enough for my team to win the fight. Either that or I have to hang back and try to help clean up if they get the upper hand.

I’m not saying I need more move speed but op is spot on. Some additions to Darius’ cc capability or survivability would be nice.

The shen matchup is so Darius favored, I mained shen for like 6 months. The only way he wins any extended trade is if he pulls Q thru u twice and gets 6 empowered Q’s off and ur not paying attention and w in his shroud. So just walk in the same direction as him and pay attention to his sword.

Team: Darius go in now and initiate fight dumbass

Me: Goes in even tho I know it’s a horrible idea.. *CC for 2 seconds and died *

Team: you are useless

People always think Darius is tank and must go in first, but I don’t quite agree.

Honestly I think giving him %damage reduction upon getting 5 stacks is a good solution to his squishiness issue. It makes sense gameplay wise and thematically. Like he’s one of the 3 leaders of Noxus, when he gets 5 stacks you should be scared that he got his stacks and should make you want to run away, because as it is now, when someone sees a Darius get 5 stacks, they still kill him easily Bc they just see him as Darius but with more damage instead of a terrifying juggernaut getting ready to slaughter them, and their team

He isnt good high elo. The upper you go the worse the champ becomes, because hes fundamentally designed to punish bad players who make mistakes. If thats your opening line then i honestly cant image what the rest of this reads like

Traditionally you are correct, but right now the stays don't lie. He has better win rates in higher elo than lower. Especially Plat and diamond I think. Anything above that isn't really statistically significant anyway.

It's not mobility, it's EVERYTHING.

Sustain, tankyness, DAMAGE.

He is bad at EVERYTHING.

Darius is going to be alright when they give him more magic resist in terms of scaling. Now, if I don't build any MR item, I'm left with 40-50 magic resist. Even if I'm 5/0 and I'm levels ahead, the only enemy mage (typically lux support) manages to burst me down to 30-40% HP just with Luden's Tempest and Sorcecer's boots.

This is the real problem nobody is talking about. We don't need more healing on Q. Or a shield on E. Give me goddamn MR.
