Elise is crazy good. I rocked with her before the buff and rock even harder with her now.
I always tell people this... You gota think like a spider and kill the isolated prey that is stuck in a bad position and or isn't aware that you are there.
Too many people play her the same way you'd play Olaf or Jax which is SOOO dumb. Play her aggro and you will hella fail. You gota play her care and sneaky like.
Elise (arguably) has the best poke in the game. Jayce's poke is the only poke that comes close to matching Elise's, Those bomb spiders are like seedlings on roids.
When I play Elise, I regularly got multi-kills even before the buff. I have played her in MANY games since she came out using all kinds of builds and in every game mode and I know for a fact that she most certainly doesn't suck. In fact, I would even argue that she is one of the best champs in the whole game. You just gota match her style, cuz leme tell ya, she ain't guna match yours...
She is the pickiest champ and requires perfect ability combo execution and positioning. Furthermore, it took me forever to find the right way to build her too as her build is very picky as well.
I don't think Elise is as bad as people say, but this player's idiocy should not change your opinion on Elise.
"Kill Isolated prey that is stuck in a bad position or isn't aware that you are there."
Most champs will get free kills in this situation, even Elise.
Basically any assassin fills this position and does it better (while still being of more use to teamfights) and pretty much any non-support champ will succeed going after "isolated prey that is stuck in a bad position".
If you are hitting players easily with the spider bombs, you most likely are playing against people who haven't laned against Elise or are just dumb.
"pickiest champ and requires perfect ability combo execution and positioning."
Again, most champs do actually require things such as this. The better a player does it, the better they do in game...
