Mordekaiser isnt a carry, but if fed, he can carry.
Mordekaiser isnt good a team fights late game, but he can outlive every****ing one and dish some heavy aoe damage.
Well, if that isnt something imba and game breaking, i dont know what it is.
He can pretty well do every job in a team, and do pretty well. He is like druids on WOW. Blizzard nerfed every class, and forgot about druids. That at a time, could do better at tanking, at dpsing, at healing and at RDPS.
Thats mordekaiser, he can be built do do everything better than you do.
I love stomping the Morde's who build anything but tank. The threat of his ult would be enough where the entire team would focus him down.
First and foremost, he's a tank, or rather a large fat guy(soaker). Building him AP is dumb because his AP ratios are complete ****. Building him AD is dumb because your damage is pitiful compared to just about anyone else.
No, he is not going to nuke the hell out of you. His damage while good in the laning phase does not hold up well late game when people start getting resistances and the like. I do love beating down squishies who refuse to buy any sort of defensive items.
Anyone can really carry. Hell I've seen a Janna carry a team. Carrying also implies that you had a good early game and that you are saving teammates, downing towers, and getting kills. Any hero can do this, some are just better at it than others.
The only thing that hurts him in team fights late game is the fact that he has no CC. He has no way to keep people on him and off of the squishies on his team. Yes, he can outlast people thanks to his shield, but that's what he's good at.
You must not have played WoW for very long, or are really new, because I remember back in vanilla when Druids did one thing and one thing only: heal. Couldn't tank, couldn't dps, just heal. And no, Druids have never been the best at everything at once.
