October FOTM - Evelynn and More!

Good morning summoners! We're back after a long break to update you on the latest FOTM as Season 2 winds down. There's a couple FOTMs hanging around at the moment that seem like they're set to stay, and a few that incredulous as they might seem, appear to be the new "thing"

Current FOTM: Ezreal, Graves, Corki, Blitzcrank, Malphite, Amumu, Shen
Up-and-Coming FOTM: Miss Fortune, Evelynn, Rengar, Jayce, Kha'Zix
Falling out of Favor: Morgana, Darius, Alistar, Shaco, Lee Sin

AD Carries/Blitz:
It appears the holy trinity of AD carries seems to be here to stay, as Ezreal tops the charts with his ridiculous Essence Flux (W) that makes pushing and taking objectives a breeze. Not to mention, he can counter almost every AD carry with the same ability.

Graves and Corki also top the charts, but Miss Fortune may be an up-and comer after a few buffs on her passive.

Blitz is just plain annoying in any match, and the flux of new blitz players has made him mostly ban-worthy.

I still got it!
That's right, we're back to the tank FOTM. Shen, Malphite, and Amumu are once again topping the charts as most annoying champions to play against with their powerful CCs and near unkillable late game status.

Top Laners
The new kids on the block are Rengar and Jayce. Jayce was always pretty strong, but after Darius came into FOTM, people realized that Jayce was the only one who consistently countered him. In the meantime, they also realized he counters everyone else too...

Meanwhile, recent Rengar buffs have put him on the radar.

Believe it or not, MID LANE Evelynn is the new FOTM for the Fall season. After 3 or 4 consecutive buffs, it appears that she's actually a BEAST midlaner with DFG + her ult. Just ask Reginald, whose Ahri was smoked by one relatively recently in solo queue.

However, similar to season end Soraka mid lane, even if you win most of your games, be ready to get hard-core raged at in the games that you lose.

Tee hee...I knew all along I'm awesome ;)
The new hero Kha'Zix is sure to be a FOTM in the near future. He seems very strong at the moment, but by no means far as I've seen.

Alistar, Morgana, Darius, Shaco
After the minor Alistar nerf, he's not quite at the near 100% ban level that we used to see, especially with the new champions taking over the ban list.

Meanwhile, Morgana simply got too boring after the introduction of more fun heroes like Zyra. She'll be back though. We may see a support Morgana FOTM in the near future.

The Darius mania is fading as well, with the introduction of Rengar buffs and Kha'Zix. 

Shaco's not as great as he used to be, but can still be very strong in the right hands. However, in solo queue, nobody likes placing all their trust and strategy into one player.

Lee Sin is the one confusing champion. He's still extremely powerful and fun to play, but most people have left him behind for newer champions and he's almost never banned anymore. If you want a go-to for solo queue stomping he might be your new man.

Any other up-and-coming FOTMs I've missed? Feel free to post or comment below!

First time to Nerfplz.Lol or not sure where to find everything? Try the Site Map


  1. Early lvls eve are so fucking bad bad weak.. so i still don't get her on midlane

  2. Against squeezy champions in midlane evelynn dominates her lane. And her top/bot ganks are rediculous. She is a great champion now and very very strong as AP mid. Specially when she is not mana hungry at any level at all.
