Designer of Aphelios or the father of this general is Riot Stashu, a member of the general design team. Stashu himself also shared in Aphelios’s articles that the journey to create this champion is extremely long, there are many ideas such as turning this champion into a magician, the power based on the real Moon’s cycle or more miserable forms than the present.
Aphelios used to have a lot of unique design ideas both in terms of shape and play
However, after a lot of hard work, Stashu and the generals’ design team League of Legends created a complete Aphelios like it is now. Of course, the newly released champion will be extremely hegemony, OP, so Aphelios has been constantly nerfed in at least 3 versions (9.24b, 10.1 and 10.2 coming) but still has about 50% win rate. and a 64.1% ban rate in the champions.
Aphelios has been the top meta in the bot lane since his debut when he was banned
But what happens when the creator of Aphelios is “eaten” by this general? This is inherently unlikely when you have to confront the person who knows best about your champion. However, Riot Stashu is still “overwhelmed” when confronted with Aphelios, of course, game designers do not need to play good games, but being completely destroyed like this proves that the product is too perfect. never mind.
Despite being “pitiful” as this but Riot Stashu does not seem to receive any sympathy from the gamers at all. In contrast, when this video was posted on Reddit, some people thought that it should have gathered the designers of the most “cancerous” generals like Yasuo, Akali, Irelia (after remaking), Tahm Kench. … and give them “onions” like Stashu to understand the problem. Perhaps gamers have suffered the “defective products” of Riot for too long.
The father of Aphelios – Riot Stashu was defeated by this general even though he was in the base
It would be great if the 5 employees of Riot Games in the game and are eaten by their own generals.
Stashu (Aphelios), SolCrushed (Irelia), DanilZKein (Tahm Kench), ricklessabandon (Akali), CertainlyT (Yasuo, Aphelios, Akali). Name this team “Real Balance” (for anyone wondering, a champion has many parts to design and can be created by many people, for example, Aphelios was designed by Stashu, voice. CertainlyT also thinks of the general idea of the skills).
Aphelios prepares this nerf.
At this stage, Aphelios will continue to be an unbalanced champion and be constantly edited on the PBE server instead of updating other forgotten generals. This is becoming beyond imagination.
* Imitating the Joker voice * Because you deserve it
Even though Aphelios has less than 50% winrate at all ranks, he is still extremely annoyed when confronted. They need to change a lot of things, for example: Why is there no bar showing Aphelios’s secondary weapons at all times of the match?
Hopefully, after being “eaten” by their own children, Riot Games staff will draw a lot of experience in the next design. They have lots of crazy and interesting ideas about a new champion, but it’s not always “healthy & balance” for League of Legends. Creativity is great, but it’s too much to create and can’t balance, it’s time for Riot to reconsider his way of being a champion.
Perhaps Stashu will regret quite a bit when “eating onions” by his own son
