The following is a summary of the strongest squad early version 10.2 ĐTCL.
1. Malphite Mage
Although the Mage squad was not too lackluster in the past version, Riot still decided to favor this team with a significant strength boost that made the (6) Mage squad extremely powerful.
The damage done by wizards is significantly increased and is especially stronger when the squad has more Wizard Hats equipped. Malphite or Lux Water or Darkness.
2. Azir Searching For Guests
This slight nerf does not affect too much the power of Azir the Sword. Although the Lunar Trio duo is no longer too strong to fit this squad, Yorick and Annie are a perfect choice to improve the strength of this squad.
3. The Beast
Manh Beast seems to be always favored when continuously improving strength, though he has never been inferior in any version of Season 2 back here.
The star power boost item that keeps getting buffed makes this squad even stronger. Along with the return of the Mage squad, the Beast / Poison is now more effective than ever with the ability to deal crossbow damage and harden the formation of spell casters.
4. Fire / Summon / Darkness
The Fire / Dark roster has been buffed again to avoid disappearing from the meta. With this buff, Malzahar and Kindred will become the two strong carry champions of this Fire / Dark squad.
The rage squad can be rated as the most easy-to-win lineup at the moment. Although Olaf has slightly reduced attack speed, it seems that 0.05 is not a big problem that this team is falling behind.
6. 6 Assassins / Sand
This update makes Assassins extremely powerful again, especially when reaching (6) Assassins. As long as you have the Ma Youmuu Sword, you can have (6) Assassins / (4) Sand at level 8.
Kha’zix will now be a monster when equipped with the Cape Cloak is rarely equipped for important targets to withstand his enormous critical damage.
7. Sniper / Poison / Guardian
Apart from the Cape Cloak equipment, the Jade clan seems to be the only way to eliminate the extremely deadly hit damage of the Assassin and even the big Magic damage from Brand, Veigar, … Also, this is a very stable roster in the current meta and is also very easy to play.
8. (6) Dark / Summon
Darkness has been constantly buffed in recent versions and is probably the most significant power boost. With Kindred always being one of the strongest carry champions in the early and mid game, this team is not too difficult to play and the late game power is very scary.
