Hey guys, welcome to my Gangplank guide for the midlane. Gangplank is an extremely potent late game scaling champion, and if played right can help you climb in any division. There is a lot that separates and average gangplank player from a great one, so make sure to read everything in this guide and try and copy it down as best you can. Whilst solo kills early on are very hard to get, Gangplank's lategame is one of the best in the game and can one shot the enemy carries if played correctly. His global ultimate can snowball games out of control, and suppresses your enemies into playing passive at the thought of an ultimate thrown in their face.

Early game is all about farming and sustaining in lane. Forget about solo kills, it's most likely not going to happen. You want to be as efficient as possible, never missing cs and last hitting minions with your Q. Make sure to have great barrel placement to zone away your enemy from CS and to avoid ganks. Try and get your as early as possible

Mid game is where you can start to dish out some decent damage. Usually your two items will consist of and , these two items enable you to start a splitpush and easily push the wave into the tower. Don't underestimate your damage because at this point a barrel should really start to do work to the enemy carries. Make sure to always be checking sidelanes to throwdown and ultimate, it's an easy way to influence the map without having to roam and miss xp and cs.

Here is where you turn into an absolute monster. 4-5 items and enough damage to 1v1 any opponent. Start split pushing and looking to take down towers whilst also trying to pick-off 1v1 kills where possible. Don't forget to always keep and eye on you're team for a global ult or a simple teleport to rejoin them at the perfect time. Make sure in late game teammfights to stand behind your tank frontline because you won't have much health to survive all ins. These are your 4 key items to 50/50 Gp

Gangplank is a great midlaner that definitely has his place in the current meta. Although he has a weak early game, his late game dominance makes up for it and is a great way to climb divisions. His global ultimate and unique kit can really surprise your enemies and snowball the game out of control from the global pressure.
