Top Team Comps #16: Tower Diving Man-Mode Comp


TOWERS are the biggest bait in the game. They make you feel oh-so-safe behind their strong thick walls, but they're actually just fly traps for the enemy team to swat you against as you cling desperately to life.

Fortunately, heroes exist to put you out of your misery...
Top: Pantheon
Mid: Diana
Jungle: Shyvana
AD Carry: Tristana
Support: Blitzcrank
- Very tanky and mobile
- Many different initiation methods
- Strong burst damage
- Strong AOE
- Very flexible strategies
- AD Heavy
- No ranged mid
- Pantheon falls off late-game
- No AOE stun
- Low CC
Q: Why Blitzcrank and Shyvana over Alistar?
A: It's simple really: Alistar's somewhat of a one-trick pony when it comes to tower-diving and needs his ult up...these two don't.

Q: Wtf you call it man-mode and yet you have 3 girls in your line-up...outrageous.
A: Would it sound as interesting if I called it "Tower Diving Multi-gender Mode Comp"?

The strategy here is pretty simple: Lane normally and then dive them 2v1, 3v2, or even 4v2 when they get low. Naturally you'll want to pick and choose when you have the advantage, but with a hero composition like this, you'll have plenty of opportunities to jump in out. (Especially for Tristana)

Since you don't have an AP ranged mage, having Blitzcrank will be extremely beneficial for initiation. Shyvana and Diana provide plenty of AOE damage, and the team itself is very balanced. With Blitzcrank and Shyvana being very tanky, Pantheon can also built towards more of an anti-carry role with bloodthirster and GA, or he can just man-mode initiate with his ultimate.

Against a team like this, you'll want to get an early lead, but also play very safe. (counter-intuitive, I know). With a Blitz on the enemy team, tides of the battle can swing at any time, so be on your guard. Shyvana and Diana have enough raw aoe between the two of them to melt almost any team, and a good Pantheon is also extremely hard to stop from winning early to mid-game.

The key to winning against a team like this is good ward coverage and a jungler with great map awareness + counter-ganking ability, such as Lee Sin or Amumu. Winning your lane will also help as well, but this team has plenty of power throughout all stages of the game.
