Only four champions kicked the League of Legends Roster in 2021, which is the lowest number of newbies since 2018. Even so, the four champions in league all of them had a massive impact on the game in one way or another. Whether they were the centerpiece of an in-game event or the focus of a competitive meta-shift, each of the new champions of 2021 left their mark league.
Rather than releasing fragmented champions with no connection to one another in history, Riot Games turned its heel in 2021 and released four champions, all linked by the Ruination storyline that began earlier in the year. With that in mind, we’ve ranked the four champions released in 2021 based on gameplay, characterization, and overall attractiveness.
Akshan rounds off the bottom of our list of champion releases in 2021, not through fault of his own, but because he can’t quite keep up with the other champions released this season. Akshan is by no means a Poorly Champion, but falls a little flat compared to the other three big releases of the year. His signature ability Going Rogue (W), which Akshan’s teammates revive when he avenges them, was borne out by the. not well received league Community after the first release of the champion. In addition, Akshan had to be hotfixed immediately after calling the live servers and has received a bugfix or a balance update in every patch (except one) since he joined the roster. As a character, Akshan is fun when for no other reason the idea of hunting down “villains” and avenging his teammates is a fun concept from fantasy fiction that is welcomed in the world league.
While Vex’s gear is similar to that of a regular control mage, it is her unique personality that sets her apart from the rest of league‘s list of masters. While every other champion is in league is a great hero or villain with an immeasurable goal and a desire to fight, Vex wants nothing more than not to be involved. Well worth visiting Vex every now and then just to hear what she has to say. But their tricky gameplay and stark differences from other control mages could make it difficult for players who don’t have them under control.
It has been a while since Riot released a top laner with dueling skills, but Gwen fit the niche perfectly when it was released early in the 2021 season. Gwen’s ability cap is incredibly high; It allows players to weave automatic attacks between their skills in a way that no other champion can. In fact, having an auto-attack to reset her abilities is an important part of Gwen’s gear, and that’s what makes her capable of dealing damage so quickly in top lane combat. As a plus, Gwen’s direct relationship with Viego was one of the few opportunities in league Story where two champions who had a direct relationship with each other were released back to back.
The year got off to a stormy start when Viego was released in January. The “Ruined King” was a mysterious figure in league‘s lore for nearly a decade, but when he finally got into the Film of destruction, league The players knew the game was going to be turned upside down. The idea of a champion with the ability to capture the minds of other champions and use the powers of his teammates against you was unlike anything else league had seen before. A groundbreaking champion with the versatility to be played in multiple roles, Viego defined the meta in various places throughout the 2021 season – both on the professional stage and on the solo queue ladder. A good Viego gamer can turn a game upside down beyond the immense skill cap of the champion while the average league Players can pick up the ruined king and contribute immediately.
