League of Legends enthusiasts and critics need to check the following heroes that could impact the top, mid, jungle, and bottom lane in the Summoner’s Rift.
Heroes You Need To Keep An Eye On!
Lillia: Jungle Lane
Lillia received a metric ton of buffs in League of Legends Patch 11.18, bringing her back into the jungle conversation ahead of Worlds. Her base health regeneration and HP regen per level were both buffed, making her sustain in the jungle much better than it had been in previous patches.
Camille: Top Lane
Camille is one of the most omnipresent champions on the League of Legends roster. The champion has been a staple of competitive play since her release in 2016, and this season, Camille’s stranglehold on the top lane was apparent. Across all professional games played this year, Camille appeared in 42.4 percent of all drafts, according to League stats site Games of Legends.
Twisted Fate: Mid Lane
Twisted Fate is a popular pick in professional League of Legends because of the sheer control he has over the laning phase, in addition to the map presence, he brings to the table with his ultimate. Over the span of the last three patches, Twisted Fate’s pick/ban presence has been incrementally increasing in professional games.
Amumu: Bottom Lane (Support)
Before League of Legends released the latest Amumu Rework, this tiny hero is mainly used in the jungle. However, because of its new Bandage Toss enhancement, many players are now using him as a support hero. Thanks to Riot Games’ major efforts, Amumu turned into one of the strongest engage-focused, teamfight-centric support champions in the game overnight.
Ezreal: Bottom Lane (ADC)
Ezreal has always been a factor in the professional LoL AD carry meta, largely when there are downswings in the meta where new champions can spring up and play the role of a priority pick for some time. Ezreal immediately comes to mind as a champion that nearly every AD carry player has in their back pocket, so don’t be stunned if the champion crawls out of the woodwork at Worlds.
