Cost Analysis Edit
- Turrets deal increasing damage on successive hits; Ohmwrecker resets the damage increase when disabling the turret.
- If there are 2 turrets in range, as they are in Nexus Turrets in Summoners' Rift, both turrets are affected.
- Ohmwrecker can be used for backdoor attempts as the team can siege a turret without the support of a minion wave by using the active.
- This strategy can be practiced alone by some champions at the cost of some health (or no cost if the turret is already at low health)
- Ohmwrecker is useful for champions that are powerful turret divers with high or decent AP ratios (i.e. Fizz or Poppy)
- is named after Ohmwrecker aka the Masked Gamer as a reward for gaining over 1000 referrals. Up until it closed in June of 2012 Ohmwrecker served as the Editor-in-Chief of Voodoo Extreme, a popular gaming site that covered League of Legends extensively when most other sites disregarded it as an insignificant free-to-play game. Ohmwrecker was also recognized as a winner in the "Minnows to Sharks" program that Riot ran shortly after League of Legends launched, he provided consultation to Riot's executive management that helped lead to the Summoner Showcase and Tribunal, and he served for a short time as an original Test Realm tester. Ohmwrecker now focuses on building his Youtube channel as a partner of the Polaris Network, formerly known as The Game Station.
- Ohmwrecker is phonetically similar to "homewrecker", in reference to its effect. Incidentally, an 'ohm' is a unit of electrical resistance, and so the name may also be understood as "resistance wrecker".
