It can be said that the game balancing team has up to “200 years of experience” of Riot Games still work a lot, but the effect is not so much. Makes many generals unreasonably strong like Aphelios, Ornn or Soraka, while some are weak and pitiful like Udyr, Annie or Neeko. But in the past 1 year, there have been 3 generals who have not been touched by Riot Games at all, never gained or decreased a bit of strength.
Here are the 3 forgotten generals:
Since the update of 8.13 on June 27, 2018, Vladimir has been forgotten by Riot Games for 20 consecutive months
Many people say Vladimir has not been edited for many years because this is inherently a very balanced general. But there are also people who think that in a meta where gladiators and resurrection take the throne, a magician like Vladimir also needs a few changes to be selected more. In addition, Vladimir is one of the generals who rely heavily on the ability to suck blood – which is easily countered by … The Butcher Sword costs 800 gold in the hands of top fighters.
However, at the end of the match, Vladimir was so strong that he could easily “fly away” the gunner as well as the main mage, then retreat or buy time with W and Hourglass, so This champion has a few weaknesses that should be understandable.
The most recent modification of Quinn was the 9.4 version on February 21, 2019 but it was only a slight image modification, and the last strength balance was 8.16 on August 15, 2018.
It can be said that Quinn’s strength is the ability to override melee champions as well as roam quickly with his ultimate. However, in the current meta, top melee champions can “torture” Quinn. For example, Ornn, Malphite, Shen or Mordekaiser just need to be fully resistant, Quinn can not do much.
Many players who love Quinn really want a slight buff so that Quinn can “fly” next in Summoner’s Rift.
Olaf was edited on 9.4 version on January 21, 2019 but the last strength balance was version 8.15 August 2018
Out of the 3 generals Olaf is the most balanced name and probably doesn’t need any modification. Because in the forest, Olaf is a pretty safe general, clearing single or multi-target monsters is good, ganking can be slowed continuously with Launch Ax (Q), can choose between the game of “eating grass” and invading mausoleum. In particular, the late game can chase the target to the Ragnarok Apocalypse.
In particular, in the current meta of all tanks, the Firewood (E) standard damage is a very effective weapon. So Olaf still has a “pretty hard” foothold in the current meta, without much modification.
Many players after seeing these forgotten generals have said that Riot Games is too focused on new generals that forgetting old ones also needs to be edited. They hope that Riot Games can balance or even remake champions who are no longer many players.
