The past 365 days haven’t been quite good to planet Earth, but the same can’t be said for Runeterra, which had a rather awesome year. So without further ado, let’s have a look back at the many things that rocked our League of Legends Accounts in 2016.
First off the list would be what is arguably the most important element of the game: champions. Because without them, we might as well be playing a MOBA version of Worms, with nothing to differentiate one champion from another. And in 2016, the already rich roster of Runeterra raked in four more.
The first hero to hit 2016 was Jhin the Virtuoso, an “artistic” gunner who is obviously an ADC by aesthetics alone. But unlike other champions that fill the same role, the approach to him is micromanagement and well-timed attacks rather than pulling combos or pumping up one’s Attack stat.
Next in line was Aurelion Sol, the first ever East Asian-themed dragon for League of Legends Accounts, especially for those who specialize with AP users. And what sets Aurelion Sol apart from other AP mid champions is that he’s all about ganking and setting up team plays. But that, of course, doesn’t mean he can’t just straight-up nuke opposing champions.

Then there’s Taliyah, Runeterra’s earthbender, I mean The Stoneweaver. More of a battle support champion whose skills are meant to stun enemies or create setups where allies are either kept safe or advantageous in combat, Taliyah has a rather unique niche that is unlike any other champion in the roster. And other than playing the field almost literally, Taliyah is also all about mobility – a perfect attribute to have for a chiefly support hero like her.
Last but not least for this list would be Kled. He’s a rather adorable yordle mascot for Noxus (too adorable even for that shady nation), but that’s not what his enemies exactly have in mind when they face him in the battlefield, as he’s one tough cookie who hits like a truck.
We’ve just begun our trip down Runeterra’s rather recent memory lane. Next time we’re going to continue this feels trip, so hold on to your League of Legends accounts.
