So Whats Broken?
Three things currently standout to be broken. Riot is looking to quick fix all of these issues so play them while they are available for some fun wins.
- Frozen Heart stacking
- Akali spell crits 100% always
- Cho’Gaths spell damage is insane
Currently Chos ability is super powerful especially paired with 6 Sorcerers and Death Caps
Frozen Heart Perma Stun
Currently if you stack two frozen hearts and put them on a champion like Pyke you can essentially permastun the entire enemy team.
Akali 100% Crit Bug
Even tho Akali got slightly nerfed, she is bugged right now and crits at 100% for her ability. Making her super string with mana items and spell damage items.
So What’s the New Meta?
We will keep you posted on the emergence of a the new strong meta but look to play with Noble/Knight combos and Yordle builds. The new buffs can prove to make them strong.
