Can say meta League of Legends currently favoring gladiator generals, leading to the main positions are filled by dozens of gladiators. But if meta-safe options are boring, sometimes you need to “change the wind” with weird but unbelievably strong options. Here are a few unique options for you to experiment with for fun:
Singed Going To The Forest
Singed jungle is an interesting option in the current meta
Most people remember Singed as a top champion for a variety of reasons: continuous and short-handed opponents, creating distance or easily approaching targets, … but As a jungler, Singed still has his main task of … running around the map and putting pressure on his opponents.
Singed’s basic equipment
Singed’s basic board is jungled
With his strong inhibiting play style, Singed can chase and block opponents easily. In particular, with the Frost Up upgrade + Sword Tung Tung combo makes the opponent can not go anywhere quickly.
More specifically, in the early stages Singed went to the forest not too slowly when he was on the Sword of Fire Release. When level 3, Singed can go out and gank effectively. With just one Smite (from the Sword of Tung Tung) plus the Super Sticky Glue (W) the opponent was extremely slow, even had a bog effect so he could not run anywhere. Once he got out of the area of slowing, Singed added another throw (E) to create a huge distance for the enemy to run away.
At a later stage, Singed could still fulfill his duties as a top laner if he wanted to. From the odd push, breaking the opponent’s defense in teamfights, keeping big goals or resisting are extremely good. It can be said that this is one of the alternative options that is still amazingly effective in the current meta.
The longer Karma plays, the harder it is to beat
In the current meta, it can be said that Karma often appears as a supporter. However, if Karma is used in the top lane, this champion can still annoy a lot of other champions.
Karma’s basic equipment
This is not a new game but still considered as a way of breaking the effectiveness in the current meta. Because most of the champions that are strong in the meta are gladiators, gladiators don’t have as many skill-gathering skills as assassins or mages, can only do slow and continuous damage. This led to Karma resisting in the top lane suddenly suddenly rebounded, because his armor + healing regimen helps Karma not be able to die when on resist.
During the laning phase, Karma can gain 1 point of Focus (W) and still receive the largest amount of healing (because increasing also increases the binding time). The phase exchange tactics only have to win because Karma has both healing and armor, enough to overwhelm most gladiators at the present time.
At a later stage, Karma still guaranteed the amount of damage as well as the effects of the Frozen Gloves + Liandry’s Mask. Spiritual Armor also increases healing and magic resistance for Karma to “bounce” in combat. Moreover, if not rushing into the enemy team, Karma can support mid or bottom lane with armor armor from Spirit Armor (E) as well as Iron Solari Chain or Redemption Chain. This is one of the alternatives but very effective in the current meta.
Swain assisted as a “double-edged sword” in the bot lane
Reworked and become strong in a certain time, until now, the meta no longer allows Swain to promote in the middle, but Swain … support is a very interesting choice.
The basic equipment after the starting map is the Spellthief’s Blade
In the current meta, support champions like Thresh, Nautilus, Bliztcrank, … are very strong, even if Swain is pulled in, the fate is no different from other champions. But when the opponent aims, Swain can fully unleash all his skills on the enemy gunner to “converge endlessly” with the enemy, helping the exchange phase at least 1 exchange first.
Specifically, at the stage of the journey, Swain can poke opponents with Death Hand (Q) and Hegemony (W). When being ganked by the forest, Swain can promote the effectiveness of two control skills, which are intrinsic to the Greedy Crow and Binding (E). Swain is also particularly strong at controlling vision with his W skills, so checking large targets is easy and safe.
But the weakness of Swain is that it is very easy for opponents to snowball. Because Swain assists with leading the opponent, the opponent is almost unable to fight, and Swain is led by the opponent. So even though Swain is a supportive alternative, it works … depending on the time.
