Optimal Best Champions Bans At Each Division - Patch 6.8 April List

Leave a Comment
Here at Nerfplz, we take user input seriously and try and accomplish as much as possible in the time available. For instance, I know there are a few items on the to-do list such as the 3s tier list, a potential item tier list, and a few FOTM reports (I keep a running tally). They're in progress, but somewhat on the backburner.

Meanwhile, I've received quite a few messages and comments over the last few patches regarding what are optimal champion bans for each division, which is definitely something I can quickly go over, and would love to discuss.

Since the majority of you are already used to the tier list format from solo queue and FOTM tier lists over the last five years, I'll start off with the same just for familiarity.

The purpose of this list is to discover optimal bans, with the knowledge that enemy teams will likely ban the ones at the top of the list.

Weird Picks #48: AD Blitzcrank Top

Leave a Comment

Blitzcrank is one of those champions that seems like it could be an excellent melee bruiser kit. He has an attack speed and move speed boost, attack speed reset, continuous sustained damage via his ultimate, and an excellent initiation technique.

However, he's generally been relegated to a support role despite all of this and also having a 100% AP ratio on his hook and ultimate...until now.

Apparently, there's a Diamond One/Master Tier player in EUW playing AD Blitzcrank top named Prim0, and considering his current rank, I'd say he's doing pretty well!

Check out the details below!

Combo Review #11: Rumble + Corki

Leave a Comment

It's clear that Riot wants Rumble back on the main stage, and won't stop buffing him until he is. Meanwhile, Corki is safely off the nerf block after a few hits on his passive, making him a great choice to main if you like his playstyle.

These otherwise dissimilar champions share one key trait, which is the massive damage output they do if enemy champions are stuck in a small area. Sporting a potential 2500+ damage over five seconds on Corki's special delivery at max level and 1200+ on rumble in a wider area, these two can absolutely annihilate enemy teams in literally five seconds.

Solo Queue FOTM Tier List - April- Patch 6.8

Leave a Comment

Hello folks and welcome to the second part of the regularly scheduled tier list updates, the FOTM List. Similar to the other list, Taric and Ekko still dominate the high end. In terms of the rest of the champions though, it looks like general player preference still lies with highly skill intensive mobile champions.

Check out the full listing below!

2016 Champion Tier List - Solo Queue - Patch 6.8 Update

Leave a Comment

Hi everyone and welcome to the Patch 6.8 tier list! As many of you may know, this update's a little later than usual as a result of PAX East, but thank you for being patient. Some of you also noticed there's a new e-mail mailing list I put up on the right hand sidebar. Feel free to join for free updates!

This patch features strong nerfbat swings on Ekko, Graves, and Master Yi. However, it appears Ekko is still too overpowered to take a hit like that lying down, and bounced back quickly.

Meanwhile, the new Taric appears to be making large splashes as a support with limited playtime in other roles. Jump down for the rest of the updates below.

Lucker Dog vs Sucker Dog, the Origin Story

Leave a Comment
Many people have heard the story of how Saintvicious dropped from down into the equivalent Bronze 5 back in Season 1, and the resulting hilarity that followed.

A lot of people also know that this is where the term "lucker dog" was coined from, generally accredited from Saintvicious. But is he really the one that coined the term? There's a lot of controversy over if it's "lucker dog" or "sucker dog" and many people remember both. Let's go through the video proof.
