With the Lunar Revel event coming to a close now and all those awesome Lunar Revel skins running around in league I wanted to remember this moment by dedicating a post to a commentary on the last week of gameplay and the latest patch 8.3.
First, I want to discuss some game statistics covering Win and Lose ratios from the very helpful site OP.GG.
With champions like Udyr, Singed, and Sion towering over the rest of the champion pool sporting a positive win ratio of 53.93% and better. I would say this week has been very partial to utility tanks. One Champion I am suprised to not see is Sejuani but I will cover that later.
Another thing that suprised me about this weeks statistics on OP.GG is the Syndra and Rengar lose ratios. In my games this past week Syndra and Rengar seemed to be quite strong but maybe the players I faced were just the exceptional 46% who worked for their wins.
If you dont already use this site I would recommend it for analyzing gameplay statistics and improving youre game.
Without further ado the 8.3 Commentary:
Riot introduces the patch with Swain and his new kit. Which is really different almost like a completely new champ if it werent for the crows and his name. I dont really play Swain but I will have to try him out during the next free week he is in. What do you think about him?
Swain’s update has really seen a spike in his playtime but I can bet that after these nerfs Azir and Jarvan IV will see a little bit less play time until the next patch or buff to their kit.
Azir for one with the updated aggro drawn by his soldier’s will have to play safer around enemy minions especially during the early game.
J4 loses some durability and an early edge on duelists so I’m betting he will lose playtime for sure.
Jhin might actually be picking up some more playtime and win percentage with this small damage buff to his ultimate.
Very Thankful for this nerf to Katarina as her damage has been astronomical.
Nerfing the #1 Tank Killer and we will see another change in the meta but more likely with some extra tanks.
This buff to Lucian is very nice and I really think you will start seeing some more competitive Lucian play now.
Love these new chromas especially the Sona!
