I just played a game with Maokai against a team that was completely tanky dps.
My team was Maokai, Vayne, Gangplank, Fiddlesticks, Jax.
Their team was Renekton, Nocturne, Cho'Gath, Jax, Skarner.
I went mid against Cho'Gath, which I found was a huge mistake, as Cho'Gath has equal burst, 10 times more sustenance, and a fair bit more health with Feast. I realise that Vayne would have been better against Cho'Gath, but their entire team was just essentially unkillable, yet able to do solid damage.
I mean, their Nocturne was able to survive for 3 seconds under the outer mid turret when he used Paranoia on me (he was on full health, I was on about 300 - managed to W>Q, surviving with Magic Sap, but he STILL made it out and killed me).
Admittedly it was a 4v5, but in this situation, what would I do? Or did we just get outplayed?
