Being able to nuke and slow an entire team from across the entire map during a push (either attacking or defending) is terrible synergy.
And if you're Gangplank has bad DPS you're building him wrong - all of his abilities scream "buy a bunch of +atk dmg s*** for me". In the aforementioned game I was doing over 400 base damage by the end of the game. (Not to mention critting for over 300 with Parrrley around level 3-5 due to having +crit runes).
"This isn't a thread about me getting owned by Gangplank and whining about it; it's a thread about me and my friend getting owned by Gangplank and whining about it."
Spoken like a true troll who read only half of the first paragraph.
I don't whine about s***. If this hero stays in the game I'll just play him and 11-2 every game I play; I have no qualms with using a hero who is clearly OP, but this is a beta and I'm offering feedback so that the game can be properly balanced and maybe actually be good.
