At present, any League of Legends player who proposes can take a look at the statistics of the champions. Knowing the rate of victories of a character or his popularity is not complicated. A transparency that helps us play correctly and allows many conclusions about the title, but has also played bad passes to Riot Games. One of the most obvious is the one that is related to the popularity of the characters and the usual complaints to be seen a selected champion in just 0.5% of the games.
The least popular champion in League of Legends
Currently, the least selected characters are Skarner (0.41%) and Aurelion Sol (0.49%). However, a League of Legends developer has revealed that the situation was much more serious a few years ago. The champions with a lower popularity index before so many statistics accumulated had a selection rate much lower than that of the two heroes mentioned so far. A situation that was especially serious in the case of urgot , which is the least dear character in history if we attend to its version prior to the 2017 ReWork .
Riot August, who explained the situation in his personal streaming, began explaining that “the old urgot had a very rare skills kit that did not feel part of League of Legends.” With him, the character had “a mixture between shooter and width wizard” that for most of the time “did not work.” This situation made the most fun elements of their spells, like the definitive one, “they did not make much sense to him” and always staying in an intermediate situation that did not allow him to render completely in any position unless he saw Very favored by the metajuego.
However, the biggest problem is that he was not a very funny character for most. The champion got to play in competitive for some periods of time and even dominated Soloq’s games with his victory rate, but he was not able to convince almost any1. “If you see Jinx in the LCS, you will want to play Jinx (…) Yes Akali has a 52%victorious rate, you can bet that everyone will get on the train. There are certain characters that, if well, will be played all over the world. Look at kai ’ SA. Everyone looks for excuses to play it (…) “
Continuing with his explanation, August pointed out this difference and established the comparison with the Aurelion Sol case. Even when the dragon was fashionable in the competitive or achieved great victories rates in Solq, nobody wanted to choose it. A scenario that, much more exaggerated, is identical to the one who found the old urgot. He could literally win all the games and nobody would choose it because he did not finish fit in League of Legends. Him’s contradictory skills and his unfined role made by the players did not feel attracted to him.
As an additional note, it must also be added that the old urgot design will not be remembered as the most inspired by Riot Games artists. His reown is able to maintain the fantasy of being a mechanical monster with human traces, but does so in a much more interesting way. Not surprisingly and although he is currently far from being the most chosen character in the video game, He now is selected in 2.8% of the games .
