    Playing on ladder lately has felt pretty repressive to midrange decks.

    I wasnt entirely sure if it was a perception issue on my end so I pulled up the weekly stats.

    https://runeterraccg.com/meta-stats/

    Ezreal Catlyn - 50%

    Sundisc - 50%

    Riven Viktor- 55% still good

    Yumi Pantheon - 54% still good

    Darkness - 51% this is the same

    Lulu Fizz - 55% don't know this deck

    Sivir Alshan - 55% still good

    Viktor Aphelios - 52% was never that good

    Lurk - 50% wtf?

    Yordles in arms - 56% yeah we get it

    Scouts - 53%

    Thaliyah - 53%

    Azir Irelia - negative winrate

    Targons Peak- negative winrate

    Kindred - negative winrate

    Ekko - negative winrate

    Spiders - negative winrate wtf?

    -------------

    The point is that a looooooot of decks that are supposed to be good are getting creamed right now.

    And I dont necessarily understand the cause.

    Maybe you guys can guess.

    These are completely normal stats, as far as what I've been seeing for the last few months. Especially Lurk. It's always been around 51 or 52% at best.

    Lulu/Fizz is a version of Yordles in Arms. It's had a similar winrate to that for a long time as well.

    I've told you for a long time that spiders is not actually very good, and it's not. Pirates is doing better, but also not that great (and has a very low playrate).

    In short, nothing surprising here for me.

    Maybe the difference is that you stopped looking at the Mobalytics stats page, which has always been a very inaccurate picture of the actual meta?

    I'm not an alarmist, leave it to the streamers to say such and such a meta is toxic.

    If anything I was more outspoken about the possitive impact of the last two patches than anyone.

    Truthfully any issues people may have with the tightening of the meta will be resolved with the next expansion. But the meta is tightening to be sure, and the numbers reflect that.

    I did notice that. I also thought it was probably a bit too soon, and also some wishful thinking as well.

    The recent changes definitely shifted the meta, but the lasting impact has not been as big as people might have expected.
