It was one of Riot Games’ ambitions for the preseason, to give a boost to ADC pos, a somewhat neglected position and in the hard for a while. Bad news, the situation looks even worse for League of Legends players on the bot lane since patch 10.23.
For some time now, the situation has been difficult for League of Legends players who love the role of ADC. With a few small exceptions, Riot Games has completely abandoned the position for months. This is why the players had high hopes for the role with the arrival of the preseason but above all new items which, they hoped, would finally give the ADC a boost. Well, unfortunately, the answer is rather in the negative.
The new items do not seem to have brought many solutions to AD Carry. We can think of the Krakens Slayer, presented as an anti-tank, whose power was nerfed on the PBE and which now is not as effective as hoped. And that, the players quickly understood it and an anthology of gameplay videos more wtf than the others began to flourish on the web, and in particular on Reddit.
Riot Please Buff ADC!
In this first video, we can see Ashe, with a build already quite substantial including the Krakenslayer. After more than 20 attacks against the Amumu and repeated dodges, the player fails to kill the melancholy mummy and at the first positioning error, it is the direct return to the base. The champion’s passive combined with a full tank build makes him quite simply unbeatable. In short, even if you are a full stuff ADC, there is little you can do. Unless you kite for centuries avoiding all CCs and none of your allies come to lend a hand.
But it gets worse, as shown in the video below (be careful, it’s VERY fast).
If for the ADC the mythical objects do not seem very OP, this is not the case for other categories of champions. The almost lifeless Katarina drops Twitch in a millisecond. It should be noted, however, that she was feed but that she could just one-shoot an ADC – full life moreover – also easily seems totally unreasonable.
The ADCs don’t seem to have a bright future ahead of them. Whether it’s against intolerable tanks or assassins who can just wipe them off the map with a single click. Keep in mind that the preseason changes are very recent on the live servers and that Riot Games will undoubtedly make some adjustments and, hopefully, manage to bring some light but above all panache to the post. ‘ADC’.
