Zeri is one of the few ADCs that still retains his position in the endless meta in general and version 12.13 in particular.
After patch 12.11, Riot’s big change is towards a more “crit rate” Zeri instead of the speed Zeri with the Three Hop Sword. In particular, what helps Zeri come back strong in the professional arena is “High Voltage Pulse” (W).
W – High Voltage Pulse:
[MỚI] ROLUNDER: If W – High Voltage Pulse hits a wall, it can critically crit champions or monsters.
Realizing Zeri’s outstanding power, shortly after, in version 12.12, Riot reduced the power of “High Voltage Pulse” and “Peak Electric” (R) at the end of the game.
W – High Voltage Pulse:
Damage: 10/45/80/115/150 (+150% AD)(+70% AP) ⇒ 20/55/90/125/160 (+130% AD)(+60% AP).
R – Peak Power:
– Movement speed bonus per stack (Cumulative Points): 1% ⇒ 0.5%.
However, this adjustment, it seems, is still not enough to stop the “200-year general”, when she is “sweeping” almost every tournament.
A skill with a very short cooldown (8s) that can deal mutant magic damage (700-800 damage) to multiple targets. Terrible! Because of that “hegemony”, in tournaments such as LCK, LPL, VCS, Zeri’s pick-ban-select rate is almost 100% in recent versions.
Coming to a “dramatic” game between TS – CES, Eddie and Zeri were the main factors leading to the loss of the second match of the “Korean couple” Cerberus Esports.
Dr. Eddie – Zeri “nightmare” of “Koreans”:
In the second match, Zeri “rarely” was “released” and TS definitely chose Zeri in the first choice for Eddie. In response, Cerberus Esports chose for themselves Yummi – Twitch to “counter” Zeri’s mobility in the late game.
With the “super late” lineup of CES, continuous “tit-for-tat” phases of both teams take place in the match to maximize the game time. However, CES has “forgotten” the superior strength of Zeri in the second half of the game.
At 26:15, a spectacular 3 vs 5 fight with a huge amount of damage from Zeri 3 items, Eddie and his teammates wiped out CES to take the baron to increase the advantage for TS. With the same great advantage, TS entered the end of the game at the 35th minute, bringing the match to BO1.
With an excellent match, ensuring the damage of the whole team at the end, it was not surprising that TS Eddie “lifted the trophy” to win the match MVP.
Current status of Zeri in single ranked mode:
Despite being a “hot pick” (Top pick) at professional tournaments, she
Rated as Tier D (very low, not recommended), with a modest win rate of only 49.16%, because “Lightning of Zeun” takes time to “big”, but ranked matches seem to such as ending earlier when “15gg” (Early Surrender at 15 minutes) occurs frequently.
Not only that, Zeri possesses a different ability to “hit run”, Zeri’s normal attack is considered a directional skill with the Continuous Tasting Gun (Q). This requires high Zeri mastery skills and personal skills good enough for the “master” to be this “powerful” girl.
Zeri’s power at Korean Singles Master rank
Zeri is a strong champion but requires a lot from the player’s skill. Game4V recommends that you need to “practice” more than Zeri before bringing it into ranked matches. In version 12.13, Zeri was not “touched”, promising to still be a true super ADC used in LCK, LPL and VCS tournaments.
