So as I was playing a game as Amumu and we freaking owned them in every teamfight. Curse - GG.

In the chat afterwards some trolling occured and someone actually stated, that Amumu will get nerfed. IMO it does make sense, since he is banned nearly always in ranked, but my question is - anyone else heard that ?

Some riot guy announced that they will tweak champs that have an almost 100% guaranteed ban, this doesnt exactly mean that he will get a major nerf, but Riot will do something so he isnt the obvious ban everytime.

meh..... he is so easy to counter really.... carry should probably always use cleanse as a smmoner spell, if you do not have that, buy your self a QSS, or a banshees veil, goes for every character :)

This is retarded. Amumu is fine as he is, he doesn't need a nerf. All the other tanks need a buff. And I'm not joking about this, compared to the time carries take to kill him he ain't OP, his skills don't do too mcuh damage or CC either. Other tanks need a buff=
Although I know Riot good enough to know they'll go the easy way and just nerf Amumu, creating bigger balance problems.

hmmm i don't think there has been any official talk about this.

I hope they don't nerf him, he's fine the way he is. :] The only changes that they've done to him was like months ago, changing his despair to do some base damage with less % of max HP. to buff his early game damage with it and nerf the late game utter pwnage of it.

i dont think so :) rammus and shen with there taunts are very viable tanks too :)

allistar can do flash/headbutt combo to make it a 4v5 match

cho is unkillable, and can keep silencing/stunning you with vorpal thingy.

gragas is a very used tank too, tanky with his W, and can use ultimate to split the entire team to disaster(ofc. you need to rock with his ult)

While all the tanks you mentioned have some kind of initiation Amumu can jungle pretty damn good. Thats the main difference. Giving your team the advantage of another solo lane.

Maybe Rammus can jungle quite nice too, but I think Amumu is faster. Have yet to try it, but EU = Down.

Edit:
Except Cho, hes is kinda useless as a tank imo. MAYBE 2nd tank, but definitely not the main.

im not sure, i dont play cho :) but you do not need the tank to jungle, you know about shaco, ww, olaf, nunu right? :) all very viable characters in a team setup :)

EDIT: i do know, that amumu's ult is very good, indeed, but take into concideration, after that, what does he have?

well either amumu needs a nerf (even if hes ulti is easy to counter by cleanse/qss) or all other "main" tanks need a buff. the porblem with amumu is even if hes a maintank (thx to disable) he still does more dmg then other offtanks late game like mordekaiser/nasus that combined with his disables and constant ae dmg (actually despair dmg is like to ultimate of nasus just on alltimes with a bit smaller range) just make him a superior tank overall.
on top of it you can stack a few AP items with +hp to make him even more dangerous. i am not sure about this but a friend of mine told me that rylais works on despair for example wich adds another bonus to teamfights by slowing champions down( and yes i know randuins omen does the same) and then add RoA to it.

now you should sit at around 3.6k hp with the obligatory sunfire/FoN/BV and somewhat around 160-200 AP (correct me if i am wrong) and restiances to stay alive like a tank is meant to do while doing insane ae dmg (for a tank) and sitting an a bunch of disables just rdy to unload. the porblem with amumu isn´t that hes too strong for a tank, the issue here is that most other tanks can´t catch up with him. also the argument you have to be good with amumu is invalid in my opinion since all mid/high elo players are kinda good and amumu just excells like no other tank if played in the right hands.

also mention this is not be meant to QQ or something, i play amumu myself but i also play champs like mordekaiser/nasus/shen and you get pretty early how strong amumu is compared to those if you have some decent experience with them. well i just can´t say it enough the problem with amumu is not that he is overpowered as a char himself, the thing that makes him OP in my opinion is that he supports his team better while doing more dmg than every other tank could.

edit: and also as mentioned above he adds another jungler to team wich is another pretty big pro on playing him.

I agree with Pyro and p128. Amumu, Shen and Galio also are the best tanks and are by far superior then Rammus, Singhed, Chogath and Company. Rammus problem is his ultimate: It is useless in Teamfights (ok it does damage but... thats all^^). Cho is a kind of caster offtank >.> he is no real tank.

Well, your post was related to mine, where I stated that he outshines all the other tanks. I think he does that because of his ability to jungle. I know that there are other very viable junglers, but these aren't tanks. ;)

Like Riot said, Amumu is not overpowered, he just fits perfectly into the current ("meta-")game.
If they nerf him, it will hit his ability to jungle. Tweaking is other numbers would not make sense, since they are not too high .

Bandage toss, Ultimate, /d, win the teamfight. Your team composition doesn't really matter terribly much. He fits into almost all comps.

Clearly perfectly balanced.
