In 10.15, with the arrival of Lillia and new power ups and downs, the meta of League of Legends change like a habit. However, there are still a lot of champions who are outside the meta of the meta, being “ignored” by both Riot Games and gamers for a long time.
The following are the general or difficult to play, or weak, or both difficult and weak to play.
Udyr is considered to be one of the simplest champions in League of Legends, the skill set is only “punching” to trigger effects on basic attacks. Because the gameplay is so simple that it is easy to guess, using Udyr effectively in LoL is extremely difficult.
Realizing that Udyr is in urgent need of a quick fix, right at 10.15 Riot Games has given Udyr a set of … new visual effects and not increasing Udyr’s game power. With these changes, the community thinks Udyr’s position is still the same – still staying out of the meta.
Very strong in the Arena of Truth but in Summoner’s Rift, Gnar is being shunned by the community
Gnar used to be one of the most powerful champions in the top lane with the ability to solo 1v1 or teamfights are all terribly strong. However, in the current meta, Gnar almost “completely disappeared” from the meta, giving the stage to hot generals like Camille, Mordekaiser, Shen, …
In terms of reason, many people consider Gnar to be a hard-to-play champion with a lot of orientation skills, especially needing the ability to “control himself” in the form of Ti Ni or Giant to participate in fights without lack of skill. power, lack of damage as well as lack of hard control.
Not only in the tournament, even to the rank, Nu Nui Than is also one of the generals with extremely low selection rates. In terms of cause, in part because Illaoi is quite picky, the player is not too attractive so few people choose. On the other hand, Illaoi’s powerful lifesteal is also easily countered by the Deep Wound effect from the Butcher’s Sword, Thorns Armor or Morello’s Demon. So, this champion is not chosen by many compared to the rest of League.
In the current meta, it is quite common for mid lane mages to be so strong that they are brought to a support position to use. But Brand was the general that Riot Games “took the kids to market”, pushing down the bottom half of the map from previous seasons but until now has not returned to the mid lane. So for Brand-loving players, a little modification is needed for Brand to return to being a mid lane mage in the meta.
After doing it again, Akali is a “bug” general so terrible that he dodges both turret damage, lifesteal and stacks damage just as quickly and as much. Because of the strong imbalance, Akali has suffered many strength reductions from Riot Games. It was true that Akali needed balance at the time, but Riot reduced Akali’s power too much, so now Akali has extremely low selection rates, whether in the top or bottom. At VCS Summer 2020, Akali is a champion with a 100% loss rate (7 games), which partly shows Akali’s influence in the current meta is not high.
In addition, Mundo is also a very weak general in the current meta, but is not mentioned in this list because Riot Games has introduced it to remake Mundo’s skill kit in the near future. This remake promises to bring the name Zaun of Humanity to the top of the meta with a pretty bloody look.
