Just ignore the madlibs thing if you're gonna watch the preview show. They've confirmed they're not going anywhere near that shit again.

The problem with pumping out 20 champions a year was the fact that there's already 121 champions, and that right now is a good number.

Also there's nothing you can really do about certain champs being flavour of the month. As nerfs and buffs happen, champions fall in and out of favour. Even if it wasn't one champion, it would definitely be another champion. So IMO there's no point in complaining about such things.

The pro players are obviously going to pick the champions that give them the edge to win, because winning is what it's about.

There are obvious characters that stay out of the nerf and buff cycle which I was (sarcastically) complaining about, sure they might get one every 10 months but they aren't exactly going anywhere with it. Special mention goes to Sion, Malphite, Zilean, Galio, Mordekaiser and Brand.

I stopped playing around March after playing since the release of Shen though so I'm out of the loop, gameplay got stale and I stopped being in contact with my friends. Admittedly I was mildly excited when people started running bruisers at bottom and rotating when top got pushed

Tristana is a hotly contested ADC, Hardly anyone uses Caitlyn, Lucian is still picked but not half as much as before thanks to nerfs, Twitch and Corki are also used a lot, and Jinx in certain team compositions that can keep her safe.

Anyway the first 2 games of today have come and gone. Just gonna copy things from Reddit because why type it out?

Group A: Edward Gaming (China) vs Samsung White (South Korea)

Winner: Samsung White



Group B: Team SoloMid (North America) vs SK Gaming (Europe)

Winner: Team SoloMid
