    Why does no one play Poseidon competitively anymore?

    He hasn't made an appearance once in the SPL. He used to be a top tier mid mage. I think he's a better Jungler than he is a mid but.. Why do you think it is he's not made an appearance?

    Kraken is strong despite aegis, and in high level play, you'd expect people to bait aegis pops and time the cooldowns. But even outside of his ultimate, he has a lot of burst potential and arguably has one, if not the, best, early game clears.

    He's quite mobile and has pseudo escapes.

    Any thoughts?

    Also, it sucks that the only skin Poseidon has aside from re-colours can't be bought, lol.
    The pros miss as many AA's as I do. I'm not a pro. Lyfe unfair.

    I still like playing him.

    I guess his midgame killing potential is too reliant on the kraken. It's hard for poseidon to confirm damage on someone before he gets gem. Other mages usually have more safe damage.

    Lategame is where he really takes off. His basic attacks reach freya level so you can 100 - 0 People with the whirlpool + basics.

    I would say he is not terrible. He got safe clear and a really nice endgame.

    I can't help but build Fatalis on him lol. I know it's terrible, but it's so good at the same time.

    Well...dunno about the pro players but I myself find that his lack of good harassing ability and the fact that most of the time you have to do your full combo to kill someone can be a negative factor when choosing my mid lane choice.

    Just out of curiosity, which Mage doesn't need do their full combo to kill someone?

    Cause I can't think of any. Mages kill by comboing skills, that's just how they work.

    I guess I wrote that kinda poorly but I meant that since he can't really harass effectively you have to go for full combo kill instead of getting the enemy low enough to get the kill with less....abilities used in the killing.

    Most mages with AoE's other than Poseidon's can kill easily. Case in point: Kukuklan
