LoL’s endless combat meta creates more shine for iconic Strike champions like Poppy or Shen.
After the Endless Engagement update, Tankers have taken a significant step back in making their way back to the top picks. So what is the cause of this spectacular makeover? Let’s find out with Game4V in today’s article:
The resistant generals are more “buffalo”:
Note: META = Most Effective Tactics Available
Having a high ability to withstand attacks, after version 12.10 when all health, armor, and magic resistance stats were fully upgraded, Tankers are now “easier to breathe” in the laning phase but still not enough. ability to compete with other gladiator generals. However, the turning point came in version 12.11 with the fact that the equipment withstands buffs (strengthening), the most significant of which is the mythical equipment from the Bami Ruins that have been “taken care of” very carefully. by Riot. The price of Bami Ruins is reduced by 100 gold, making it easy for Tankers to buy it and have a very fast push speed. When completing mythical equipment, Tankers have 100 more health than before, creating “immortal monsters” in the middle of the battle. Remember that Tanker’s equipment is always much cheaper than damage equipment, the power threshold comes earlier, giving Tanker a huge advantage over other champions.
Countermeasures are nerfed:Riot probably really wants to turn the League of Legends Worlds meta this time into a tank meta, when they have a kind of change in favor of the Tanker champion. “Tank Killers” such as Kog’maw, Viego, Master Yi, Kayn, Fiora suffered a catastrophic reduction in their ability to deal damage as a percentage of health – the biggest fear of Tankers. In addition, the nerfs for the equipment of the Water Monster Hook, the Evil God’s Staff, the Liandry Mask of Pain, etc., made the Tankers “silently happy” like Manchester United in the transfer season. With Tankers getting stronger and stronger, while the options for effective damage are weaker than before, it is understandable that Tankers become the dominant champions of the meta.
Meta transformation:What do the “hot meta” bot lanes like Senna-Tahm Kench and Seraphine-Ashe have in common? It is the lack of damage, the lack of traditional gunners to help the Tanker lose his biggest threat. When teams only play with one main source of damage, tank players will find it easier to target crowd control, if they kill these players, Tankers won’t be able to be killed in combat. painting.
Tanker champions like Shen are the highlight of the current meta
In addition, jungle champions such as Bel’veth, Rek’sai, Wukong or Diana also gradually appear to make up for the team’s lack of damage in 2vs2 situations. Playing tank also means that you will be able to give up minions and resources to the jungler as well as not being too dependent on the kill point, in gank situations, if giving up the kill to the jungler successfully will help. they reach their power threshold earlier, which makes it easier to control big targets like Heralds or Elemental Dragons.Conclude:
With LoL version 12.13 Tanker champions not being “named” by Riot, it is likely that the dominance of this champion class will continue in both solo and professional ranked.
