I'm wondering why I'm not seeing Malphite mid anymore. Been quite a long time in fact. Imo he's still quite the impressive counterpick.
Did he have some nerfs or something ? I remember things like double or triple doran into Abyssal / Sunfire (or Randuin) at high elo that destroyed many AP. :O
EDIT : I'm not saying that you should build him AP. He doesn't have good ratios with AP, but just like some did before, building him with mr reduction items then going armor/hp, just to "lane counter" the midlane.
EDIT² : So it seems the main problems with Malph are his buggy ultimate (sad since Malphite was here for a long time) and also maybe the fact that Galio outshines him, due to his better skillset for mid lane right now.
