Riot Games has always been quite predictable when it comes to updating League of Legends . Although each new patch includes a few surprises, developers usually focus a good part of their efforts on solving the immediate problems that affect the video game. However, for the second time the company has forgotten two of the most problematic heroes of the qualifying items in order to make the changes that will reach the video game in the next version. We refer to Zed and Teacher Yi, as successful as feared by the community at all levels of MMR.
The two forgotten champions in the next patch
If we take into account all League of Legends skill levels, Master Yi and Zed occupy the first two positions in terms of Baneos . The swordsman is blocked from the meetings in 36% of the occasions while the master of the shadows stays out in four out of ten games. Very high figures that are accompanied by victorious rates that are not less interesting. For the first time in a long time, the central lane laggedly exceeds 50% in its victory rate. A fact that still rises more in the case of Jungla, which counts 52.6% of the confrontations for triumphs.
Statistics are some of the most terrifying that are currently registered in qualifiers. It is true that both have been hated by the community for some time. However, the dance data has worsened throughout the last five patches making the situation even more serious. As if that were not enough, the rates of victories of both have shot themselves after the latest Riot Games changes. Especially serious is the case of Zed, which offered acceptable performance and somewhat higher than the average with respect to its category of champions, since the murderers in the central lane rarely win half of their games.
Riot Games’s oblivion in the next Patch 12.17 also surprises since the developer has justified many of her adjustments or reductions in power depending on the Baneos Rate. That a hero receives too many vetoes is a big problem. Players who really enjoy him can barely use it and those who do not want to see him must sacrifice themselves in all games. It seems less serious than when a League of Legends character is simply too powerful. However, it is even more difficult to reverse the situation **. Viago, for example, was in a similar case and the developers dedicated weeks to solve it.
The initial changes to Maestro Yi and Zed seemed to be coupled to the company’s new philosophy. Riot Games was trying to make both champions feel better offering important quality of life and statistics improvements. However, what we all expected from the developers of League of Legends is that once they were satisfied they carried out a reduction of power that balances the victories of both characters around the previous levels. Something that has not yet happened or will take place in the next version.
Ultimately, it should be noted that League of Legends developers are focusing most of their changes to the next Worlds 2022 . However, it does not seem to carry out small adjustments to begin to direct the situation of these two characters was an unassumable or difficult challenge to combine with this task. Why they have not done so, therefore, it will continue to be a mystery.
