Chemtech Drake could be removed from League of Legends: Riot to question players before making a decision

Riot Games is considering removing or changing the new chemtech drake in League of Legends (LoL, image right) after negative feedback from players.

The Chemtech Dragon is one of two new dragons added in the League of Legends 2022 Preseason, the other being the Hextech Dragon (pictured left).

While the Hextech Drake has been widely accepted by the community with its haste/attack speed ability, portals that spawn on the map, and the chain slow when it claims its Dragon Soul, the Chemtech Drake has won players over with its “Chemfog” Gas Zones anger stealth players and buff that allows players to deal increased damage to enemies with more health than them.

It’s also arguably the Chemtech Dragon’s soul buff that’s arguably overpowered – it grants players a Sion-like passive when they die, temporarily reviving them into a zombie-like state where they can use their abilities for a few seconds, before they die.

“As with everything in League, if we come to the conclusion that something is bad, we prioritize changing or removing it.”

League of Graphs shows that both new Drake souls have a win rate of more than 90%.

said Riot GreaterBelugaWhale on Reddit: “As with everything in League, if we come to the conclusion that something is bad, we prioritize changing or removing it.”

When asked what metrics would be considered to help Riot decide whether or not a dragon swap is ideal, he replied. RiotAxes replied: “We’re conducting a survey. It will take a while before we have results. The reaction on Reddit and English-language social media is clear, but that hasn’t always meant that players in the past didn’t like a feature altogether. That doesn’t mean Reddit feedback is worthless, just that you’re all a subset of gamers and we want good data.”

Yesterday in the UK/Ireland/Nordics European Regional League (ERL), the NLC, players from the British organization X7 Esports agreed that the chemtech drake should be changed:

We’ll update this article if Riot announces changes to the Chemtech Drake or a complete removal.
