Gangplank is pretty ridiculous though. His shot does way too much damage to make up for his lack of other abilities that do nothing useful combat-wise (besides his ult).
its not so much of a "cry" its obvoiuse, that alot of carries just carry tooo far into late game and its not cause the type of character, its cause they can either STACK AP to boost their abilities to way to high or completly ignore armor making most tanks usless.
Now in games where i main Malphite i'm building MR up first but even then most AP stack able characters are still 1 or 2 shotting me with abilities if they get the ap.
Also if you put together multiple hard hitters like the last game i was in : Gangk,Kat,Corki,Ashe,MuMu the end game becomes nothing later about strats its just firing off your ap stackable and high crit stuff to the point you obliterate everyone.
Wheres the strat apart from focus firing.
