The difference of this Support champion in the two ranks of Challenger and ‘Iron’ is too different, especially in the last 12.23 version of League of Legends.
There are many League of Legends champions with simple skill sets built for ‘newbie’ players, but extremely effective. However, at certain ranks, just being easy to play is not enough, some champion picks require a high level of skill from the player or a level of understanding of their game tempo. The most typical is what, in the past 2022 Zaun City Lightning proved extremely domineering when constantly mastering the bot lane in professional matches. However, in the matches, what was completely ignored, proved extremely picky players.
A similar situation occurs when a Support champion has the lowest win rate in Iron ranks but is extremely dangerous at high ranks. That is Yuumi, The Magic Cat is currently the scariest Support in the Master and Challenger ranks League of Legends. She is the fourth most banned champion (38.7%) after K’Sante, Zed and Fiora at Challenger rank.

Yuumi has a win rate of only 46.55% at Challenger rank, at bronze rank is 44.65% and Iron rank is the worst, only 39.48% win rate (according to U.GG). As you can see, the champion is as easy to play as Yuumi proved ineffective at these tiers. When you combine Yuumi’s ban rate with her 10.7% pick rate at this Challenger rank, it’s easy to see, the easiest champion to play. League of Legends has a rate of appearing in nearly half of the rank matches that are considered the most prestigious in this game.
For the development team League of Legends, maybe Yuumi is still one of the most difficult problems to balance. That has been proven by gamers in the tournament League of Legends biggest in the world – Worlds 2022, ban rate of Yuumi reached 100% with 68 appearances, appearing only 8 times throughout the tournament. This stat alone is enough to see how much power Yuumi has in the hands of highly skilled players and a stable lineup.
This also makes the difference between Yuumi at Challenger rank and Yuumi rank ‘Iron’. To be able to ‘steer’ well this Support champion with this unique playstyle, players need to be able to combine well with teammates, especially their ADC, and should also learn to play proactively like Supporters. New help can bring high efficiency.
