1. Ali is NO CARRY. period. he can be a tank/cc/support, or a nuker with good survivability/cc.
2. When Soraka and Amumu lane it is a pretty bad idea to have amumu leave and let soraka defend alone. Any potent opponents will push the tower meanwhile.
3.Tristana solo mid is also pretty risky. At 1/3 of the games at max she will dominate and really boost ur teams strength. Roughly 50% of the games she will get killed 2-3 times during laning phase though and screw up the whole game.
4.A team with 2 tanks and a healer is no offensive team. I'm not saying it's bad or anything, but offensive would be 4-5 dds/nukers and 0-1 tanks =P (please don't use 5 dd teams, they suck)
5.Imho aspd is a ****ty way to build tristana. She has a skill that greatly boosts her aspd already, she has the passive that makes single harassment shots easy and rather low base dmg. So why not go for damage instead? (Or even better a mix of damage plus aspd/crit/armor pen/armor reduce).
Except for that nice idea to help out with team setups! Many people fight lost battles because they chose a ****ty setup!
Alistar is a carry, he isn'T described but he is a really good teammate and LEADS teamfights to win since h can initate great, leading teamfights to win means also beeing carry, also having auren and buffing your team mates also leads the game to win.
So in a way he is a carry.
Have you ever seen a well played Tristana on mid and a well ganking Tristana? Then you missed the best part in LoL.
Well playing Tristana on asp is only played when you go for her nukes on early.
Starks Favour and Last Whisper are the best choice in the asp/ad build.
Later Crit like Phantom Dancer and I.E. and you have an unstopable Tristana.
Also a phage is doing great so with the help of her asp she can slow everyone for instances...
Just my opinion.
You also stated that this isn't an offensive team.
Yeah it's not an 100%ly offensive type of team.
But as I said I present basic team builds first.
As I said as long your team has mana f.E. by Sorakas Spell or an aura you are able to push till the bitter end, you are able to initiate very often becouse of Amumu and Shen, and both are evry tought champs.
Your teams gives also an good option to switch from a offensive stance to a defensive stance becouse of Tristana. I will come to the point later.
But also you are able to switch from a defensive stance to an offensive stance.
As Ezreal beeing a matchmaler he can carry the heal spell and make your team going forward after a battle...
If you look from that persepective you are able to use this team as an offensive team very well.
About the Amumu and Soraka issue, well its hard to hold a lane against two for Soraka.
But Soraka at tower is also a fair trick healing herself up and muting the enemys.
Well but Amumu is able to take the Dragon fast down if he has Smite.
Also with a heal potions Amumu is able to go back to the lane very well and hoding back the enemys.
In any cases of mid game and still laning Shen is also able to support Soraka.
