Esports News – There’s no doubt that League of Legends Worlds is one of the most exciting esports events this year. Aside from the impeccable performances of pro teams from different regions, the event also showcased the potential of in-game champions when used professionally. So, while waiting for semifinals this coming November, let’s see the top 5 notable champion picks at Worlds 2019.
Pantheon has the highest presence rate at Worlds 2019, but also one of the highest ban rates. We saw what he’s capable of when MEGA’s mid-laner Nuttapong “G4” Menkasikan used him against Lowkey Esports. MEGA managed to win using Pantheon, giving the champion a 100% rate out of all his games. Pantheon, however, also received a high ban rate because of inconsistent nurfs after Riot’s latest rework.
If we’re going to talk about the bot lane, Kai’Sa is the most picked champion so far. After all, she’s prominent in the ADC role, especially when used during team fights. Kai’Sa earned a 74% presence and a 54.8% win rate. Many pro teams picked Kai’Sa in the Group Stage—Invictus Gaming, G2 Esports, and SK Telecom T1, among others.
Kayle is one of the underrated champions who saw the biggest rise in play this year. In fact, she has the highest overall pick rate at 11% in all her games. She’s known for her impressive balance in the top and mid lanes. Among all her games, we truly saw her for what she can do during Invictus Gaming’s match against Griffin in the Group Stage.
With a 76% presence and 66.7% win rate, Xayah made it to the list. Like Kai’Sa, many pro teams prioritized Xayah in the bot lane. But like Pantheon, Xayah also received one of the highest ban rates in the Play-ins. She’s strong, but many pro teams find it difficult to keep her balanced.
In the Platinum level, Ashe holds the highest pick rate at 17%. From all her games, she also garnered the highest win rate at 54.20%. Many players saw her potential as an ADC when Riot released Patch 9.19 three weeks ago. And according to game analysts, she can control a map with her Ultimate.
