Top Team Comps #47: Season 5 - Global Team Comp

This week's team comp focuses mainly on long range initiation-based champions with a good mixture of poke and all-in. The synergy on this team composition is extremely high and definitely works well in solo queue for creating frustration.

Crowd Control: A
Difficulty (1-5, 5 is hardest): 4
Dueling Power: A
Initiation: S
Poke Power: A
Pushing Power: A
Sustain: C
Synergy: A

Early Game: B
Mid Game: S
Late Game: A

S = Amazing!, A = Good, B = Average, C = Below Average, F = Bad


Long since nerfed, global based champions used to reign supreme over most of the other champions on the rift. Their ability to initiate and poke from beyond the fog of war and even from outside of potential ward ranges makes them insanely powerful if they snowball.

Although the warning time for most of the global skills now allows for ample warning of impending doom, oftentimes it's not enough time to react accordingly. This team takes advantage of an old favorite to try and dish out some pain.


This team works well as a split pushing composition, especially since it contains an extra damage dealer (Pantheon) as a opposed to a traditional support. However, it also functions very well as a dive comp.

Kiting Power - Combining Ashe and Twisted Fate's amazing kiting potential, this team's front line is extremely potent, allowing its backline to cleanly execute their sustained damage.

Strong Surprise Ganks - Being a global based team composition, keeping your side of the map clear keeps the enemy team on high alert and playing very passively for fear of being attacked from all sides. Even if your teammates are ganked by a jungler, he may easily find himself in a disadvantageous position.

Split Push - Depending on who has started snowballing, almost everyone on the team except for Ashe is an EXTREMELY powerful split pusher and can join back up with teamfights in an instant.

Strong Stacking AOE - This team's catch potential is through the roof. Once an enemy champion gets caught out and hit with the first CC, the rest of the team can follow up extremely quickly, avoid any chance for the enemy team to retaliate and come to their aid.

Key Concepts

  • It's best to use one of your tanks as your main split pusher, likely Sion. The reason for this is that if they're caught, the chances of surviving is much higher, and a strong front line is key to the success of Ashe and Twisted Fate.
  • This team has somewhat weak teamfighting burst 5v5. In order to make up for it, make sure to pick out fights where you have an advantage.
  • Ashe and Twisted Fate have very strong poke potential. Be sure to abuse that first prior to initiating with Pantheon or Sion ult.


In order to beat this team, champions with strong engage and assassination potential work well to reach their back line.

Here's an example team that may succeed:
  • Zed - Extremely strong assassination potential and ability to dodge TF gold card via his ultimate.
  • Sejuani - Powerful diving initiation skills can force split pushers to come back and assist.
  • Jarvan IV - Great gap closers and ability to wall in their backline with no ability to get out.
  • Leona - Strong initiation technique and tankiness to survive the tank damage.
  • Graves - Repositioning skills, tanky passive, and burst to take down enemies out of position. Also synergizes well with Leona.

  1. sustain is C imho
    that bot lane needs ganks, otherwise it's too weak

  2. Honestly I feel like this would be better with Shen top and Sion support or vice versa.

  3. I like the idea of that Team Comp idea, the global one in that case.
    I regret there isn't any alternative choices which will differ in the stats like more substain less CC/Engage with a Soraka support, or more with a Jinx ADC, a Karthus APC, Shen Top as mention bellow!

    This is more of a strike team comp and less of a global comp. IMO here is a better global comp
    Top: Gangplank/Shen
    Jungle: Rek'Sai/Karthus
    Mid: Karthus/TF/Ezreal
    Adc: Jinx/Draven
    Support: Shen/Soraka

    my global comp (for fun)

    top: Draven
    jg: Karthus
    mid: Ezreal
    adc: Jinx
    support: Ashe

    The range on your champion selection is definitely a true global

  7. SSJSuntasticApril 08, 2015

    Agreed that sustain should be a C. Changed! I think bot lane can win without ganks, but definitely snowballs hard if they can get a few.

  8. Not saying Pantheon is necessarily a /bad/ support, but if you wanted a true, "global" support, why not take Soraka? Her global heal can turn around fights at any stage of the game, not to mention she pairs better with Ashe than Pantheon imo (she has better peel for Ashe and can heal her to get through her bad laning phase).

    When you said "globals", I was expecting Shen.

  10. my global comp
    mid:AP ezreal
    top: Karthus
    jungle: gangplank or shen
