In version 12.13 League of Legends, “The Executioner” Draven was used as a hard counter for turtle farming squads.
Notes for readers:
META = Most Effective Tactics Available.
In version 12.10, Riot released an update to extend the game time by increasing the resistance of all champions. This leads to “super late” squads that obviously become invincible. However, with Draven – “Snowball King” you can completely prevent that.
Draven in Gumayushi’s hands is the difference
“The Proud Executioner” Draven is known as one of the gunners with the “Snowball” style of play. Possessing the passive “Draven Alliance” will accumulate points when picking up the Spinning Ax (Q) or killing minions, killing people will consume the accumulated points to get 2.5 gold for each point and 40 “hot bonus” gold.
Unpopular in the meta, but Draven has always been a “nightmare” in ranked matches, with the ability to shock damage with two “Spinning Axes” and “Storm of Death”.
Coming to the game using Draven “credits” of crown prince Gumayusi, greatly contributed to T1’s 2-0 victory over DRX.
Draven “hacked money” of “prince” Gumayusi:
Entering the second game, it was noticed that DRX intended to play “turtle farming” with Deft’s Aphelios. In response, T1 for the third time brought out the “cabinet” card Draven to prevent this plot.
At the start of the match, DRX saw Draven’s danger, they continuously deployed “dive” turrets to destroy Draven. It seemed to have succeeded with 6 early “corpses” for Deft, but with only 1 “indiscreet” phase of Deft, Guma “burned” money from his passive and bonus bonus.
With a “hacking money” lineup with Draven and GangPlank, despite taking a big lead in terms of network, T1 still managed to secure a slightly better amount of money in the second half of the match. They easily increased the item gap and won in the 32nd minute.
In the meta with many “late” lineups, “The Executioner” Draven is always the right choice for you to destroy your opponent comprehensively very early.
However, Game4V recommends that you consider this option, because this is a very risky choice (if you can’t activate Draven’s passive, it will become much more “useless”). This is evident in Draven’s “bad” win rate in the LPL.
