It is not too surprising when the 2 latest gunner generals League of Legends is Senna and Aphelios are at the top of the professional meta when their strength is far superior to the rest. Senna is versatile and Aphelios is too much damage and effect, especially the range of Calibrum guns. Right in the opening LEC series, Aphelios had 100% chance of appearing.
Gunner statistics after the first day of LEC Spring 2020, not surprising when Aphelios ranked 1
However, it is not until the pro tournaments return that we will witness the hegemony of Aphelios. A series of videos show the imba of the Calibrum form when it allows Aphelios to attack enemies regardless of distance, as long as the target is marked whether it is from skill or hand attack. This effect was not supposed to appear on the gunner champion because they could knock down enemies within a few attacks that the opponent could not fight back.
Aphelios almost shot down the enemy even at this Old Stone Platform
This is well known and the community has been reflecting for months, but it was not until version 10.3 that Riot Games planned to eliminate this effect when limiting their attack range to marked targets. Just a few hours ago Riot Mark Yetter confirmed this in posts His latest on the LoL forum. Not just nerf Aphelios, Senna is also on target during the next update.
Both Aphelios and Senna will be nerfed in various ways in version 10.3
In addition to the nerfs, Riot Games also acknowledged that reducing the jungle experience was a failure in the previous season. They will buff the amount of resources that players receive when eating jungle camps every minute, from 4-18 minutes, but this amount of experience is added more to the camps often ignored by the jungler. gank a lot.
Changing badly, Lee Sin remained the strongest jungler meta from Worlds until the beginning of season 10
Moreover, Riot Games will further reduce the amount of gold junglers can eat from road soldiers. The goal will be to find a way to eliminate the “Hopper” game like the Master Yi – Taric strategy. This is not really a trend or meta too popular in season 10 but once brought out and operated well, this style of play can destroy all opponents.
Although no longer causing fever as early as season 8, the Hopper strategy with Master Yi – Taric is still extremely uncomfortable in season 10
According to Riot Mark Yetter’s post, these updates will be critical but not exhaustive. Besides, on the PBE server, “new” Wukong is constantly being edited and promises to be released at the same time with version 10.3.
