Early in Season 7, Riot has decided that it’s high time for assassins to shine. The problem, however, is that the limelight has been shining a bit less on the ADCs, which were the feared stars of Summoner’s Rift before the assassins got a revamp. So, is it the ADCs’ turn to get a tweaking? Yes. And if that were to happen, those with ADCs on their League of Legends accounts are going to be thrilled, but right now they’ll have to wait.
Just one season before, ADCs were these fearsome kill-on-sight champions that teams refuse to give any chance to get into position and do some free hits. This season, while ADCs continue to be deadly, they’re no longer as fatal as before.
League of Legends Accounts: ADC Adjustment
But then again, maybe it’s a good thing, as this has caused League of Legends accounts owners to be not too reliant on “point-and-click” ADCs, and instead on those that use skills. “Right now the meta for ADC’s are more utility based ADs and not hypercarries,” says Kasper “Kobbe” Kobberup, ADC for Splyce in the EU LCS. “Bot lane is all about level six at the moment, so champions like Ashe, Jhin and Varus are some of the best picks. In general you just try to farm to get your item power spike, before that you can’t do so much.”
Sure, it has definitely helped diversify ADCs, yet at the same time it has hurt the particular role.
“The impact it has for ADCs is that you can’t really outplay people any more when there are champions like Rengar, Camille, Leblanc and Katarina or the usual super tanks you need three or four items to kill. Riot aware of this, since almost every pro player has been talking about it. Of course I hope they will make some changes as fast as possible. I’m not even sure how they didn’t make these changes already, but I guess they’ll come soon,” according to Kobbe.
As of now, ADCs are definitely not in a good spot. Hopefully, by the next few patches, they already are. Oh, that is going to make ADC-oriented League of Legends Accounts owners happy.
