League of Legends (LoL) Question: State of the Meta


  • Biperspectival

    State of the Meta

    I’ve been on break from League for some time, and I was wondering what’s the meta comp. When I went on break, it was Tank jungle and toplane, scaling adc, ardent support, and some high damage AP midlane. Has there been change?

    Due to the changes to runes and masteries, games are ending a lot quicker now (pre-30 mins at all ranks), most likely due to players not being able to take as many raw stats to survive early game, thus making match ups based on their kits alone a lot more important. This is most noteworthy with magic damage top lane bullies such as Teemo and Singed as no base MR was given to compensate while armour was doled out. Katarina is also pretty strong due to her being a very snowbally magic damage assassin midlaner.

    Supports right now are pretty balanced, as masteries were put in place to help enchanters to deal damage and protect teammates, while melee supports were given runes to take the edge off poke in lane.

    Catch up experience was removed, so early to mid game farming monsters like Shyvana, Xin, Udyr and Warwick have really stepped up to bat, since now even successful ganks can set a jungler irreparably behind.

    Overall, right now while a solid meta is yet to present itself and will most likely emerge proper when the LCS starts up again,champions who can squeeze the most of the new runes seem to be dominating. For example, Gp and Ez get a lot out of kleptomancy to help rush those early item power spikes, successful Malphite ults are more punishing and more often, and champions that can auto reset easily are getting a lot out press the attack. Hope this has helped you understand the horrific yet entertaining car crash we call "pre-season" :D

    Well right now from what i have seen is top lane meta. Tanky champs that does a ton of damage. I don't really know what else there is beside that.

    Bot lane meta hasn't changed that much with the introduction of the new runes, except for the fact that Ardent Censer was hit with a huge nerf, so it isn't as strong as it used to be. Tanky supports tend to be prominent as of right now, but there are some cases where the squishy supports can be a lot stronger than tanks, due to Summon Aery
