ø GENERAL ø
Machamp is a huge damage dealer, strong ganker with powered basic attacks + slow + critical hate, but without the Unite Move buff this Defense and SPDefense isn't strong enough. Can defend objetives and disrupt opponents with Barrage Blow easily. The nerf in Patch 18.104.22.168 Cross Chop ability is small, so this build still viable, and Close Combat only worth on teams with a lot of abilities that put status conditions on your enemies.
ø EARLY GAME ø
Take Karate Chop and focus on farm wild Pokémon. Priority = 4 Aipoms on the lane > Audino alone > 2 Audinos in the sand. Don't try fights, unless your MID/JUNGLE come for a gank, Machop is really weak at this point. Wait for the Combee + Vespiqueen respawn and take the Machoke form at level 5.
ø MID GAME ø
With Machoke form and Submission you can perform ganks in TOP and help your MID/JUNGLE to get kills and score points. Cross Chop for better engage/scape + critical basic attack is really important and, finally, at level 9, you evolve to Machamp and gets the Unite Move Barrage Blow. With the Unite Move try to get 2 or more opponents to destroy her health bars and perform more score points. In Bottom lane stay alert about the Dreadnaw respawn time in the mini map at 7 minutes of the game, if you defeat him your team will get a shield!
ø LATE GAME ø
Stay alert for Unite Move cooldown, better safe her at this point for fights in Zapdos or destroy opponents Score Bases. Don't forget about the last 2 minutes double score point buff, this is a really game changer with Zapdos. Stay with your team the maximum as possible and communicate your intention always. Don't try engage/ganks alone and pratice/study the game as much as you can!
Good luck and stay frosty ^^
