Soooo Azir Irelia Is Still Dominant

    Every now and then I play a few games in diamond on my phone to see if the metas shifted and to make predictions for how new card releases will impact things.

    But as far as I can tell right now, nothing being released will stop the 60% Azir Irelia meta from being dominant unless there are "substantial" changes made to the decks mechanics.

    Like you can match them 1 for 1 with drops and healing and you'll still loose pretty much every game due to their massive tempo advantage.

    While Riot claims their internal statistics and matchup tables are "healthy" all I see on mobalitics is a few very dominant decks in the 55% winrate category and one straight up busted one in the 60% category.

    As we enter July I guess we'll see if Riot gets the balls to start hard nerfing certain archetypes after all the player frustration but so far its been nothing but pussy footing around by the balance team.

    Fizz Tf was literally a bundle of kittens compared to what it's like to play at high ranks these days.

    Why would it stop being dominant? The balance patch hasn't been released yet, and we still didn't get any new cards.

    what I'm saying is based on the reveals it will still be dominant...read the words with your eyeballs.

    So there needs to be hard nerfs

    Like let's say that lurk is tier 2 and has a 55 percent winrate, best case scenario because it looks pretty good

    Arelia Azir will still be the best tempo list and will not take a hit in it's winrate post expansion.

    So yes...plz nerf Riot k thanks it's been going on months now

    You did say that you "play a game to see if the meta have shifted" So yeah I did read the words with my eyeballs. Not that I need to, since your post lately have been nothing but repeating the same complains over and over again.

    As someone who saw Pyke in Mogwai's Video I think Pyke will have a word to say about an Irelia Azir meta

    No kidding. Holy frick, Pyke can just eat Azir/Irelia for breakfast. And most other board-based decks, actually.

    I'm kinda scared about him being too good, honestly. We could easily end up in another oppressive meta with Pyke as the boogeyman.

    death from below's  4 mana...pretty sure they'll just bounce and get a free attack like always. Also you have to play pyke then get the board clear after the level so that's a end game win con if it lands at all
