What made Lucian jump from t2 to t1 (even though it was only one spot)?

H4x (as usual) is free to correct me but I think I can answer this:

He has very strong kiting powers and does well in lane from which he transitions well to the mid game and after that to the late game. He has very strong lane presence and after that he can kite enemies with his E. He can basically either win or tie every single lane he is against and that makes him good general pick. There aren't exactly any counters to him, since he can avoid kill lanes with his E and his support's peel and he can dominate any lane with his insane base damage.

His ult and E also allow him to do well in kiting comps.

Graves and Corki also happen to be less effective against really tanky teams. Lucian isn't quite a hypercarry but he tends to be a little more effective against tanks with the right build. IE, PD/shiv, BotRK, LW is pretty effective, especially since his passive double-procs botrk's on-hit.

Graves is also supposed to be pretty good against him in lane, so if less people are picking Graves, Lucian becomes a little stronger.
Thanks to Jovy for the sig!

If you mean champions that aren't meta themselves, but do well against the current meta, probably Trundle and Vayne.


Wait! What? Trundle?

It's not so much that Graves is "really good" against Lucian, it's more that even before Lucian's nerf, Graves was pretty much the only ADC who actually beat Lucian in lane. Then Lucian got nerfed and everyone's spamming Graves so it was like rip Lucian. Graves begins to scale badly into late-game because of tanks = Lucian is the best lane bully again because he can both bully and scale well into late.

trundle would easily be top tier if not for the fact that tanks that come out of the jungle are just about as strong as top lane tanks. back in renek/shyv meta he only had to deal with one, with 2 his usefulness drops a bit due to lack of real hard cc

kennen support i need to see more of, he can get shutdown pretty hard

the guys here summed up lucian pretty well, having safe damage in culling is always huge too, which people often overlook

Well, if not now, we might see him after the PBE buff where his pillar slow goes up to 70% at max rank.
He is gonna kill you!!!
