K’Sante is becoming an almost “no ban, pick” champion by teams in the friendly League of Legends tournaments in the 2023 Pre-Season.
Although it is still too early to draw conclusions about the upcoming meta in professional League of Legends tournaments such as LCK, LPL… in the upcoming Spring season. But through many friendly matches, the community has been able to somewhat predict some names that will surely appear, even “storm” in the near future.
Among the tournaments held in the past time, Demacia Cup 2022 is definitely the most prominent name that attracts a lot of attention from players who love League of Legends. Although not full of talented men, LPL’s mid-range teams still bring viewers a series of dramatic matches while ensuring high professionalism. Ignoring the performance of each team, it is still easy to see the diversity in each choice in each match. However, it also shows that the meta has changed a lot since the previous biggest League of Legends tournament on the planet – Worlds 2022.
According to statistics from Leaguepedia, up to 92 different generals have appeared in 77 games of Demacia Cup 2022, especially among them, none of them proved to be stronger than the rest. In particular, Syndra, Fiora and K’Sante are three generals whose appearances exceed 50 at the pick/ban phase of each game. Since being edited by Riot, the Dark Queen has regained her position and become a strong pick in the Mid lane. At the Demacia Cup 2022, Syndra is also the most chosen mid laner, far ahead of the other two colleagues, Ryze and Akali.
In the Top lane, K’Sante and Fiora are almost two arch rivals with the highest win rates of 62.5% and 69.6%. At the same time, the two champions above also proved to be more dominant than other options in the Top Lane area at the last Demacia Cup 2022.
In the bot lane, Varus, Zeri, and Yuumi all received a certain amount of trust from the players at the 2022 Demacia Cup. Besides, the Lucian – Nami duo still have a certain place in the meta despite many drops. power from Riot.
The Jungle position was the area that suffered the most changes in the last Pre-Season patch. However, most teams still prioritize options that are somewhat safe, easy to play but highly effective like Wukong, Sejuani or Vi… to get a genuine “fight opener”.
