    I've noticed a lot lately that the tankier team tends to win a lot more. Granted I don't play competative I won't lie when I see 3 tanks destroying a normal team of assassin, bruiser, tank a mage and an adc. Tanks are just way stronger and are out putting a lot of damage, where as tank busters are just not as easy to pull off as well.

  21. DatVocals!

    DatVocals!Pred mesecem

    what confuses me about this is that pros usually will always prefer the easier to play strat if its as effective or even more effective, since even pros make mistakes and anything that you can pull of consistantly and with low risk is just superior, the overall value just is higher.

  25. maikukun

    maikukunPred mesecem

    Not understanding Senna and dying because you think you can take her is not int'ing. Maybe doing it a second time because you thought it was a fluke is probably not int'ing. Attacking Senna knowing full well you can't beat her? That's int'ing. Please use words correctly, because 90% of the playerbase think just dying is int'ing. And the way you just used it, implies the same thing and they learn it from people like you. Which then, feeds into the toxicity issue that people like you (influencers) are complaining about. You do it to yourself.

  26. Brainlags

    BrainlagsPred mesecem

    I think the Title of the video is pretty misleading. It should be more like "why I love playing senna support" The literally only sentence in the whole video that mentions why pro players don't play op builds is something like: "Meh.. Pro players be too stubborn to try new shit, but I bet they will play it sometime soon because tank senna super op." You’re welcome, I just saved you 16 minutes of your lifetime.

    TLDR: pros are smart and dedicate their immense time to actually research and backtest items and they will optimize their item picks far more precisely depending on their context more than avg players. That may mean they go with tried and true OP build, but they are confident enough to make their own build as they see fit. Not rocket science.

    I never played senna before , im a Top/Mid main, she never caught my attention. Then I got a highnoon Senna Skin shard. FInally picked her up and tried the tank build. Shes now one of my favorite champions , in the past month I've played over 150+ games of her , both dmg and tank. Shes so fun , plus the skin is A1 , if you've never played her I recommend you do.

  46. Cardin Tran

    Cardin TranPred mesecem

    I mean this Senna build sacrifices damage for survivability and it's used in solo Q because you can't trust your teammates and self sustainable builds usually work better when you're playing for yourself. In pro play the adc's dps is really important and pro players generally try to ensure that their adc survives because they have a level of trust that the adc will dish out their dps in the most efficient way like they're designed to do while the other players peel/frontline/dive for the adc. That's my take on it anyway lol I'm like a minute into the video

  47. Douglas

    DouglasPred mesecem

    It’s more like bruiser senna I think. Mythic is a tank item, but then she goes clever which is bruiser and then primarily marksmen items. Overall I think she operates more like a bruiser with the build than a tank, but an interesting 180 on her traditional picks non the less.

  55. Robert MacIntosh

    Robert MacIntoshPred mesecem

    @tdpro360 its more the issue of SoloQ being stuck in their ways and discouraging it. I was playing Lulu mid and top in S4 well before it was played in pro. I played Lillia as a Midlaner before a few pros picked it up last year. I was playing Nocturne mid season 6 well before his current peak of play in lanes. The problem is, people in champ select assume youre trolling and if you die once you get accused of blowing their games even though even if the strat was sleeper OP youll never win 100% of the time. Naturally many people get discouraged from trying stuff out in more competitive game modes.

  60. skritch S

    skritch SPred mesecem

    From my experience the tank build needs time in the game with a lot of passive stacks to get back the lacking damage that the aggresive items provides Pro player matches are very important that you get fast farm so dps is very important All players in the match knows how important their 300g is to the enemy so you will often see each carry with 400-500+ farm on both sides with minimal kills/deaths you could argue that senna does not farm as a support in pro play but it's also based on senna's ability to zone, without early damage your ability as senna to control an area is limited so pro players probably choose the damage build while using good positioning as a defence instead.

  70. Mario Luis

    Mario LuisPred mesecem

    The actual reason pros don't play tank senna is because there is absolutely no point. Would you rather 3 hit kill and enemy squishy or survive 0.3s longer. The champ was never good as tank it is close to useless having a senna tank.

  71. DICΞTΘ

    DICΞTΘPred mesecem

    9:34 ... yeah because support players definitely can't last hit or play other roles.. right ... well if you say so. No vision control or roams then too because you're asking an adc to support right? ;) i think you know what i'm trying to say.

  74. Howard Shum

    Howard ShumPred mesecem

    Tank Senna has been around since her release. The reason why no one goes tank Senna in pro is because she's way too weak early. It's harder to harass with Grasp early on. You don't get your first power spike with Gauntlet as you would with Kraken. Guinsoo's also has more reliable mid game scaling than Cleaver for Senna. If Senna goes tank, then she becomes similar to tank Karma, it's annoying as hell, but can be ignored in a teamfight.

  76. thekiller989

    thekiller989Pred mesecem

    problem with senna is that she's being piloted by adc players adopting the fasting build. Not all support players want to farm or are even good at farming. We need more actual support players picking up senna but then your stuck with drafting a double ad bot lane or make your actual ad player play a mage or tank, which they might not be used to either. sucks to suck. Senna is stuck in some weird limbo and riot needs to pull her in one direction. Either make her a full adc and rework her stacking or, make enchantress ap senna viable.

    Refuses to use builds but keeps using stupid ass champions. Like if you try to convince me Sett or Sylas have high skill/ high reward. Senna in this case is just another champ I see 80% of my ranked games (D3 LAN here btw) with her annoying range everyone want to abuse. The point here is if champs were balanced before items, building would be more of a tactical game, but because it isn't I see the same exact champs over and over from the 100+ champs riot has released.

  112. Squidylich

    SquidylichPred 2 meseci

    one thing you missed that also probably contributes is that glacial augment is SUPER good for pro play, and senna is one of the few champions that can abuse it this season. Glacial augment allows pro players to pick more skill shot dependent champs, which often have much higher damage outputs than low skill shot champs when landing their full combo. To put it simply, pros are much better at using utility. The grasp build relies heavily on just having high numbers, which isn't as potent in pro play as solo queue. pro players will use things like movement speed and vision to much greater affect than solo queue players.
