In addition to a brand new clan Nguyet Toc was released, the update Arena Of Truth 10.1 brings too many equipment changes that make meta change so quickly. These changes are all aimed at physical damage and to improve the damage of some powerful AD carry like Twitch, Olaf …
Let’s review some equipment changes of version 10.1, we have the following changes:
2, Gai Gai Vest replaces Giap Gai with the function of removing critical damage that the owner receives and reflects back magic damage when taking damage.
4, Continuous Name is replaced by a Blue Bow made from Wooden Bows + Gauntlet Gears that deal 90% armor penetration to the target for 3 seconds after dealing critical damage.
6, Mercury Cloak: Hero uses immunity to crowd control.
With the above changes, it seems to all help strengthen the strong champions in terms of physical damage.
The advent of the Nguyet Toc as well as the change in equipment are helping the squad to favor physical damage to the throne
For example, Cape Cloak anti-assassin equipment will no longer be suitable for all champions in the line after losing the ability to provide attack speed.
Blue Bow when combined with Infinity Sword, the strong AD carry like Nocturne, Twitch, Sivir, … will cause a huge amount of damage.
Giant Power helps champions deal strong physical damage like Master Yi, Olaf, … have the ability to improve the amount of damage and better defense.
These squads Magician/ Summon will be extremely difficult when confronting with Lightning Arrows equipped by the poison activation squad. And most of the champions don’t benefit from the changes in equipment, but are even more disadvantaged.
Singed armed with a Crossbow is becoming a nightmare for the Mage / Summon squad
Besides, Amumu, Nami and (2) Water all have their strength reduced, making the squad Shamans / Summons is extremely difficult to play. In addition, with the new General Karma of the Mysterious System, which is extremely popular, almost every squad uses 2-4 Mysteries, so the Magic squads are weaker than their opponents.
In general, the formation of wizards associated with wizards in the early stages of the 2020 season comes from two main causes: The direct cause is that the Mage system has been reduced in relative strength, but the cause indirectly, it comes from the counters that make it stronger and more popular.
The change in equipment is also a factor affecting the current meta. Therefore, if you are trying to climb the rank of the current time with magic damage squads such as Guardian / Water / Mage or Water / Summon / Wizard, this will not be the right time and This squad will be harder to put you in the top 4 than before.
