Ok your reading comprehension is awesome.
First off, they have two people that have suppression skills, WW's ult and Malz' ult so the QSS is a must.
The wriggles does give a decent amount of damage as well as a utility to be able to last hit the dragon or liz if you're fighting ww for it.
Also tryn needs early burst... That statement is so wrong.
Merc treads wouldn't be a good item this round anyway because the tenacity would only affect ryze's snare and malz' easy to miss silence. It doesn't affect suppression spells.
Finally. The Ryze built AP. AP!!!! Ryze gains more damage off of mana, not AP anymore.
So you're saying in the same regard that it's practical to slash damage early, where tryndamere recieves his feed to control late game, when he already has an ultimate that allows him to forgo death?
I didn't question Wriggles, I didn't even suggest a better item for it because I'm aware that it's necessary.
Tryn does need to be able to maintain his damage not only to get early kills under that ultimate, but to clear through jungle to shoot above his farm.
Both ultimates are magic damage, Merc Treds would do plenty to solve the basic issue.
I'm assuming this game was normal, don't you test new builds in normal? Perhaps this Ryze wanted to attempt something new, doesn't mean you bash him for it.
