Who Is The BEST Designed Champion? | League of LegendsApr 01, 2022
I've been playing League of Legends since the end of Season 5. So while I haven't experienced much of the glory days, as they say, I've been here for a long time and got to see the game evolve and change for the better. or worse, countless times over the second half of the game we've had no shortage of interesting
champions, both new and reworked, and I thought it might be worth talking about which ones are, in my opinion, the creme de la creme de riot or, in other ways words. Let's talk about the
champions in the game before we get started.
I'd like to lay down some ground rules: a champion's stats won't be taken into account because they can be adjusted at any time and generally speaking if they're too strong they'll be nerfed or if they're too weak they'll be buffed that's how the balance works game if you like a bit more context on what I mean by that I suggest you watch my video on what makes a good champion skin before you watch this one just so you can get a better idea of what I mean by champion skin tldr a champion that is currently strong in the meta is not always well
designedand a champion that is currently weak in the meta is not always badly designed one last thing obviously there are a lot of great champion designs in the
league, in fact contrary to popular belief, the number of good characters far outweighs the number of bad ones, it will be hard to list them all, so I decided to pick four that I think really shine. acan for me so let's start talking about spoiler alert number one you already saw him in thumbnail jin and no I couldn't put him in fourth place just to prove a point that would be disrespectful to him exile not he spared no effort to document how critical a set a precedent for the future marxian underclass by creating a 44 minute 44 second long video yes that was done intentionally jin is widely respected by almost the entire community for being that shooter who isn't oppressively frustrating to go up against, but not someone they can just ignore.
He was able to lower the barrier of entry for players looking to try their hand at adc because unlike the other marksmen who focused on speed, Jin was all about power. he needs to have impeccably tuned mechanics to play it well, rather than his performance depending on how well he understood his windows of opportunity and made every shot count. Jin has as many weaknesses as strengths. Each attack is like a truck, but in return it really hits. Slowly, he has one of the highest combat ranges of any champion in the game, but they require pinpoint precision.
Critical hits give him a huge boost to movement speed, but to counter that he has no dashes and they do damage reduction. His lotus traps can deal huge damage. which far surpasses even teemo's mushrooms but it's almost impossible to land on his own with that setup, there have been cases where maybe he was a little overtight and needed to be taken down but hardly anyone sees jin as a champion with the one that is frustrating to deal with or lacks counter game. They were able to execute this while giving it a unique yet pronounced design. At first, people claimed that the deadly bloom was marginally close. to jinx's zap, as both were a long-range ability shot that had an indicator and a curtain call that bore a similar resemblance to Caitlin's ace up the hole, but those claims were quickly dismissed by looking at their lore and design In terms of her background, Jyn is a deranged psychopathic Serial Killer who sees murder as an art and tries to destroy her victims in the most elegant way possible.
He also has a strange obsession with the number 4. Everything has to come in 4, which in East Asian culture is an unfortunate number because 4 in Chinese also sounds like the death jane design team could brilliantly replicate their ocd with 4 by making each of her abilities have something with the number 4 in them, her passive has 4 shots her q bounces 4 times w marks the target for 4 seconds e grants sight of targets for 4 seconds and her ultimate fires 4 shots another key part of his design that i think was done so well is that every single thing jin does is noticeable most people can quickly tell what he does just by looking at him.
There is no lack of clarity in his kit. The auto attacks of he qwe and ultimate are easy to notice visually and audibly. Overall, he is arguably one of the
bestdesign champions, if not the best. the game isn't insanely bad to deal with nor is it someone you should underestimate really fun to play and the first state it carries apart from ezreal to be beginner friendly since you don't need to have a fast attack move mechanic and his gameplay Behavior and aesthetics perfectly apply to his lore in the League of Legends universe, so next let's talk about Warwick, the reworked champion.
I did a whole video where five reworks were the best in my opinion and Warwick was a part. Of the five, his playstyle revolves around relentlessly pursuing enemies using his innate durability and his great movement to ignore most attempts to hinder his true-to-nature quest for him as a werewolf. work when he runs after people he gets on all fours like a wolf but when he attacks he is almost very human like jyn warwick he is a champion with a unique kit armed with a balance of strengths and weaknesses he has very good tempo but poor mobility combat and has a hard time sticking to targets unless he's already on top of them which means most ranged champions can usually take him out if they're able to dodge his ult practically speaking it's fitting because he has to get to four legs to run but he can't attack without his claws so he has to stand up to attack which means he doesn't run as fast you have to choose between moving or fighting not both he is strong in skirmishes due to his durability and stamina, but he can have a hard time holding back damage during teamfights, where he can't focus on one target and often has to switch to whatever. er person he can easily attack, which reduces his effectiveness as he loses his attack speed bonus. on warwick he's pretty strong good damage good durability good tempo good crowd control good sustain but everyone can be exploited in some way he's definitely a fearsome threat to go up against but doesn't feel oppressive unless he's fueled but all champions are in that case he's a pretty fair champion, strong when you don't know what he can do but manageable if you do it in his new lore he was basically a living test subject for singed using a bunch of crazy alchemy and steroids or something to turning him into this freak of nature i don't know what's in it and frankly i don't want to but i would imagine that that giant tank of chemicals on his back is what gives him the durability and superhuman speed regeneration ration as it is evident by his insanely high pace and the damage reduction he gets from primary health thematically it makes perfect sense that he's this wild raging monster with at Ta movement speed Incredible resistance to injury and pain and the ability to heal any damage he takes despite his boost His original state still resonates through his appearance Looks like a werewolf Attacks like a werewolf Runs like a werewolf and his abilities are done in the way you would expect a werewolf to be this next one i think it will upset a lot of people but i personally think silas is a fantastic champion please hear me out again.
I don't judge a champion's design based on how overpowered they are or how broken they were in x-patch. It's all about the design of the game and how well the master of it was implemented. his kit so let's get the game started even though he can steal any ult in the game silas actually has a very easy kick like super simple his passive makes h is next attack do magic damage aoe whenever he uses a ability similar to riven's passive which is a spell considering a lot of champions these days have passives with a billion lines of text this is pretty refreshing.
Intersect after a short duration. Another very simple ability with nothing particularly overpowered. Kingslayer is a fast attack that heals the stylus while damaging enemies and lastly, Absconded Absconded is a fast attack followed by a hook that pulls it towards whoever is hit. Those cut and dry. The basic abilities were intentionally designed that way, which I'll explain a bit when I go into his story, but before that, his ult, as everyone knows, allows you to copy any of the enemy team's ults and use them as your own, this might seem like . overpowered and unfair at first, but it's important to understand that this comes at the cost of silas himself not having an ult, it's also important to remember that ember can only use ultimates that work while in a void, for example, he doesn't get much mileage on darius's ultimate because he can't apply bleach covers, don't get me wrong, there's a lot of mischief he can pull off with other champions' ultimates, but in the end it's just an ability and it goes as far as the original champion's ultimate is meant to go do in most circumstances the silas copy is a weaker version, now let's talk about why I think his design is great in my video.
In addressing the issue with the new champions, I talked about the clever way they were able to combine the two parts of the stylus into their abilities. he is a demacia wizard for the uninitiated. Demacia as a country is very anti-magic. they think he is evil. they think its bad and should be eradicated and most of the champions you see in demacia other than lux are all about physical attacks fiora garen jarvan lucian poppy quinn vane xinjiao a lot of front attackers for the sake of clarification just because a champion does magic damage or build ap doesn't mean they are a mage kayla and morgana are demigods i think galio is technically an anti-mage and soda is actually i don't know what it is but she doesn't really use magic from what i know her instrument is magical, but I don't think she can cast magic spells herself. he physically attacks you with his chains just like Garen hits you with this greatsword, but those attacks are infused with magic to show off his experience as a mage, so he is half moss and half mage in terms of the abilities of him.
His q explodes with energy. his w uses magic to steal life from his target, probably in the same way that he steals opponents' energy signatures to copy his ultimate silas of him is a perfect representation of a Demacian mage because he he still has his senses in advance. attitude of the nation of him but with the magic touch to show you how he was able to harness that side of his power honestly they couldn't have done better so in my last pick I'm going to go with the cats that I am . I'm going to go with a zillion, he is considered by many to be the most balanced champion of all time, considering he hasn't received a buff or nerf in over five years, a record that no champion has ever held before or since. fixed the timekeeper archetype you see in other fantasy games all of his attacks have some time element to them his passive speeds up your team's experience rate q is literally a time bomb that goes off after a few seconds w speeds up time of cooldown on his q and his e speed up helps an ally or slows down an enemy and finally, his ultimate rolls back time on a champion who was recently knocked out.
His playstyle encourages patience and planning, as good players have to think ahead to make the best use of their abilities. time bomb has an instant activation if you place two on top of each other, but individually the bombs take time to detonate, you have to decide if it is more beneficial to speed up your team or slow down the enemy team with time warp and finally, you have You have to decide who is the best champion to time change in a fight, as that can change time on its own or make no sense at all if done at the wrong time or target.
Not the most popular champion since I did a while. No one plays with it, but Design-wise, it's surprisingly very well-designed for someone who released in 2009 when the game first came out, although it did get a bit of an overhaul in Season 5, just like the way the game time can lead to a host of sophisticated tricks. you can pull off some pretty sneaky things with this time bomb, whether it's doing a double bomb to stun a target or tagging your front line or divers with bombs to rush into the enemy team for follow up damage, you can use time warp to cheer up his hecarim or slow down the enemy darius and laugh in his face despite having pretty much only two abilities zillion's gameplay never gets monotonous because there are so many things you can do with him none of his abilities are subversive in nature uoppressive its time bomb shows a clear radius and countdown to when they are about to explode, the chronoship can be instantly cast on someone, but if you use it too soon you can stop the last one before finishing the job, just like than warwick, he has to choose between using his abilities. to attack or defend, and generally can't do both at the same time, which opens the door not only for counter-attacking play, but also for skill expression. from a different era, but since her character closely represents the father time and time wizard trope, the way they were able to model her kit was done very well and fairly in her lore, she can travel throughout of time and to toggle timelines, but he can't do anything to change what already happened, which changed the limitations of his abilities, I think that's partly why the chrono switch was made to be used only in someone still alive and not an ability where you can instantly respawn a teammate and have them immediately teleport to where they just died was a very elegant way to make it strong in its own right, but not so ridiculously overpowered until the point that it would be completely stupid to deal with, besides those four, there are a lot of other good champions that I wish I had talked about in equal measure.
Good gameplay and character design so I'll at least make an honorable mention list of champions that I think were very well rebuilt just because you don't see a champion on this list that doesn't instantly make them poor design quality is a spectrum and not in black and white, if you agree or disagree with the ones i have chosen, please let me know in the comments below again, what is considered a good champion is subjective, someone might think that yumi is the epitome of a good game. While Jin is terribly designed of course they are wrong but you know what I mean anyway, if you enjoyed the video I would really appreciate a rating and if you want to see more content like this please consider subscribing to the channel. description below for the links to my discord and social media as well as the playlist containing all my discussion videos if you'd like to see more that's all for today though thank you all so much for watching and I'll see you soon for the next one takes care of you
