u cant 1v1 a decent darius, so people dont like to top vs him because most people in low elo all they know how to do is go balls deep and try to get kills all game. then he gets fed, so even with his ****ty scaling he ****s on your whole team, and it looks even worse since darius usually picks up last hits on champs with his dunks, oh ya, and getting dunked by darius is just demoralizing. its like being 50 hp and watching karths ult pop over your head...only 10x worse.
and i think the worst part is how most darius play, (no wards, push all game, autoattack creeps, and when jungle gank comes in he probably gets a 1 for 1 trade) and because of his kit, they get away with it for the most part. i like the argument that darius is strong initiate but has no escapes. i always think...why the heck would a darius ever run away!?!?!?
