Strength at each game stage

Strength in early game/laning – medium

Urgot is decent in the early game, especially into melee matchups. He can bully and poke down those beefy top laners between his passive, Q, and the shield on his W. Having said that, though, Urgot can struggle into ranged matchups like Kennen, since they can out-range him and preven those easy trades Urgot wants.

Strength in mid game/skirmishes – medium/high

In those mid game skirmishes, Urgot really thrives. He spikes hard after getting Black Cleaver purchased and his kit is designed to win those quick fights.

Because his damage is heavily based on his abilities, and especially getting value out of his ultimate, Urgot loves to use this power spike to get those early kills to get ahead.

Strength in late game/teamfights – medium/high

Now Urgot has the same problems that most other juggernauts have in the late game. He gets kited, he doesn’t do consistent DPS to carry fights late, and he doesn’t have a ton of AoE damage.

However, Urgot does have two things going for him. First, that execute on his ult is always useful to change fights by taking out a fed carry on the other side. Second, his passive has percent max health damage, which makes him a perfect tank-killer in front-to-back team fights (especially on top of his Black Cleaver shredding armor).
