Is Ashe under powered?

  • I have played a great deal of Ashe, mostly because she is great fun. However, I find her extremely week compared to all other ADC's. Especially early and mid game is very poor. Her advantages are mainly her skills which are really handy in team fights but do this make it up for an extreme poor 30 min period. Quite often people whine during champion selection when you pick Ashe, which is very annoying. So my question is, is Ashe under powered? Please comment.

    • Ashe is atm, very niche. She was popular for the longest time, but gradually other ADC's have been found to be more utility. imo, the issue is that Ashe is a "pansy" champion. She relies on consistent kiting of her enemies, but lacks the damage that Kog'Maw or Vayne does while kiting. That said, she can fit into a poke/push comp because of her W, or you can carry well (theoretically to Diamond) if you play perfectly.

    • If your thinking Ashe is underpowered then your not building her correctly. If anything her KIT is overpowered. Think about it, a global 3.5 sec at max stun, one of the highest range cone abilities, perma-slow, and free gold on EVERY last hit. Her kit is unfair at bottom lane and really kills ADC's who lack range like Ez and Graves. Although your gap-closing with these two make up for this somewhat, your wasting your only escape mechanism and since your already slowed, if your running away she can just walk right up to you again. I hate her because of this. Not to mention, other's outclass her late game damage and bring more utility to the team such as Vayne, Kog, Tristana etc. So to answer your question no, she isnt underpowered.

    • she isn't exactly underpowered, but often she doesn't give what the team needs as ADC. AShe gives the higghest cc out of all ADCs, but has the lowest damage Output (don't know if these AS changes changed this). Ashes biggest advantage compared to other ADCs is that she can accumulate a big gold advantage with her w passive, which weights out the missing steroid. Further i think she has pretty strong laning when combined with the right support, e.g. Leona or Taric -> Chain the Stuns on enemy ADC and you got an almost secure kill, which may put you ahead. Ashes carrying quality goes down as the enemies ADC gets closer to fullbuild, since her only real advantage lies in he rgold advantage.

      Kit yes. Champion no. Her AA animation is rather poor for an ADC, and her AD and AS scaling also are sub-par when compared to other ADCs. This means that early and mid game, she will get trounced unless she pokes. Aggressive combos in bottom lane will make her day terrible.
