Any dedicated Malphite players here? When do you pic him, which match ups are kinda bad for him?

Runes, Masteries, Itembuild (Fh+Abyssal?)

Whenever I play him I dont feel that strong, but I rly like his design :3

Malph is the only Champ I ever bought a skin for (obsidian one) and he was my main champ when I lvl'ed up my account. But however once I started with ranked I did rather poorly with him so I ask for tips.

actually i didnt really lose a lane as malphite, had a hard time vs udyr/shen/ww though and vs a good ryze/vlad

darius can be strong too with his magical damage passive and true damage ultimate.

malphite is not a good solo top.
he is a counter for irelia and jax but that's all.
try him jungle.

kayle solo top is always been viable.

Malphite is one of my favourite champions, I don't see why he would lose to most solo top champs except maybe Olaf.

The build you're going for seems fine, your job is not to be "strong" in terms of dmg, your job is to disrupt, initiate and tank.

Runes I believe Armor marks, Armor seals, Magic resist per level glyphs and armor quints will make any team with 4 AD (usually the norm) cry.

I can tell you when you should not pick him. Never pick him vs double ap or ap jungler. Pick him if enemy team has 3 auto-attackers.
