I'm not real impressed with Orianna. A little disappointing. They need to make some more appealing tanks for LoL.

@Averdrian Keyword here is " Appealing." As it stands noone really likes to play the tank champs. It's always the vaynes/warwicks and the ranged champs. I rarely get a team with a tank champion in it. I'm of the opinion it's because the other classes are more appealing than the available tank champs.

@slash beast

I think they couldn't make an appealing tank unless they made it so he could get lots of kills. But then he'd either be OP or not a tank. I think the real problem is that people like getting kills (thus they play AP nukers or AD carries) I don't think they could really make a tank with any more appeal than the existing tanks. I believe that's why the "tanky DPS" archetype has become so popular. It let's people get their kills while soaking up some damage too. The situation is not ideal, but a lot of people are real kill whores who don't understand team play. That's my perspective anyway.

@slash beast I play Shen in more than half my games, quite enjoy him. I really don't object to tanking if everyone else is picking dps champs (otherwise, I play support if we already have a tank).

Never been big on the assassin or dps type champs honestly.

@slash beast
Maybe there is some logic in almost all of the bans being tanks.. they are extremely oped in that game :)
