The Rumble Thread
Till David makes the Rumble section going to make this the new thread to talk about him so we don't further clutter the announcement thread.

Now....BEGIN!


He looks weird and confused on his roll in the battleground.

DPS? AP? Ranged? Melee?

RE: The Rumble Thread
His skills are all ranged, 'cept fr the close range flamethrower... His fury mechanic increases the effectivenes of both his skills and his normal attack, if he overheats.

I'd say he's melee, because that spiked mace would otherwise prove to be an utterly useless cosmetic addition.

I'd lean towards a hybrid DPS/AP, or maybe a tanky caster?

RE: The Rumble Thread
I also think he´ll be melee.
I really hope he´s a tank, we need some fresh blood in that type



Lock in your characters and let me explain
The tale of a man who's caused so much pain
Demacia is the place he was raised
If you listen to me you'll be quite amazed
To learn why he's the king of the Rift
The enemy, they're all scared stiff
The heart of a team on mid lane pushes
The reason your foes stay out of the bushes.
The heat of a battle, Garen appears
Down the top lane runs a river of tears
A beacon of light, watch his enemies run
On his back eighteen cloaks of the sun
The lane seems clear but it's hard to say
Is he in the bushes, is he MIA?
It's team fight time, he'll lead the charge
His scarf is long his sword is large.

RE: The Rumble Thread
Burst Tanky DPS, like Morde, but more effective.
Also would be melee like that.
However, if one/two skill scales with AD, that will probably mean full AD/Tanky build (Randuins/Trinity Irelia and the like), and his passive allows him to get tons of damage in.

Off-topic (Now that morde is mentioned): I don't get why people say morde is complete trash, he's a very useful anti-carry if you build Abyssal/Rylais, but a lot of people build him wrong.

RE: The Rumble Thread
Morde eh?

He had 1 ranged ability and the rest kinda circled around being melee.

Rumble has 1 melee ability, a shield, and two ranged.

Rumble clearly has more ranged attacks than Morde.

I believe its more of a upper high elo type of deal that claim morde is useless (mostly due to his weird team synergy he possesses. Personal I always found Morde as a wrecking ball, but as I said a lot of the "useless" comments come down from high elo gameplay and then it trickling down the grapevine and the sheep run around with that set of belief.

On-Topic:

Rumble does seem like a bit of morde, just rather than a useful passive like morde's armor, he has a weird berserker fail passive (it seems retarded, they should've did it another way). He's got a nice cone for farming, a decent harass (his harpoon) and a shield (though tbh, I'm tired of champions with shields) its like they can't freakin build a melee without adding "derp shield here". He's probably an off tank laner, which is what morde pretty much is.

Sadly I don't see any reason to play him, his ultimate is the only interesting thing since it seems to be an aura damage type of deal or something, I always wanted a champion like that (still waiting for a Pharaoh-esque champion)

RE: The Rumble Thread
No, I'm not talking about a mummy champion, I want a champion that played like Pharaoh, he was pretty cool especially when he was recreated in HoN, I thought his play style was pretty cool, being a support melee champion was pretty badass, especially his ultimate.

RE: The Rumble Thread
Well probably not happening as Amumu is the closest thing we have to Pharaoh. It's got the same chances of happening as there is of us getting another tank that looks like a turtle.
That and though they take influences from HoN and Dota, I'm pretty sure LoL isn't going to create a champion that's almost identical to one from those games.
Once again we have a champ and he has a Pharaoh skin so I really doubt it'll happen bud'.

================

I see Rumble as an annoying champion. He'll just walk into team fights and fire off some of his annoying AoEs and then continue to strafe the teamfight. His ult AoE is looking like Anivia's Ice wall if it damaged in an AoE. Though can you walk through it? Or do the missiles actually blow you from walking between them?
