That's not early game. That's bordering mid game at that point. That's still a 50% chance to crit. So you do need to get a couple shots off of your target. They can trade some hits with you, and when you charge in you're going to have to hope you crit or you can use your ult. Again, there are people that can shut him down. His E is only useful to his team with minions around. After early-mid game, minions won't always be around to help your team.
I love how certain individuals only look at ONE skill of GP and not GP as a whole.
1. Global ulti that slows(relatively reliable if you choose the correct spot since the cannon shots lands toward the centar), perfect for helping allies' gank or clearing a wave of minion at your tower.
2. built-in cleanse + hp recover(secondary).
3. Denying mechanism(really important because it lets him stay 1-2 or 3-4 levels above the opponents).
Gp with ghost+cleanse+BV is unstoppable(the triple anti-CC plus his high movespeed enables him to dive past a enemy tank to land a Q on enemy carry, then run back without problem).
