Please stop picking LeBlanc, I’m begging you




I’m going to lose my mind if I see LeBlanc in these weird-ass drafts any more.

This champion just doesn’t do a whole lot any more – she used to be insane, but now since the game has changed and she has been nerfed so much, she does nothing that other champions don’t do better.

The ONLY time it makes sense is in to three carries that can’t build MR, and even then, you could just pick Akali in most of those spots.

Ooh but she’s good into Syndra

You also should stop picking ffffflipping Syndra, for what it’s worth. Yes, she has good gank assist. No, she doesn’t do any damage and she’s immobile. 

LeBlanc offers nothing outside of being able to set-up a great gank and bringing damage – which is fantastic and all, but she doesn’t do enough damage any more. Constant nerfs combined with the mage items giving lower AP means she can’t do anything to anyone who can build a Wit’s End.

She can’t farm and outscale a control mage, and she has to make a massive outplay to be even as useful as a Corki, a Viktor, even a Veigar.

It ONLY makes sense as a 5th pick on red side, when you can see the whole enemy team and it’s like, Jinx/Syndra/Jayce as the three laners. Without an enchanter support. She’s basically a worse Ahri at the moment.

I can’t believe I’m saying that, but it’s true.

Cool skin, though. Actually, never mind, this whole article is overwritten.

Her gank assist if she hits the E is fantastic, but most champions can set up a gank if they hit their skillshot. Some don’t even have to do that – like a Veigar, a Malzahar or a Twisted Fate. Sylas does the same thing while being a better teamfighter, though is equally hard to find spots to pick.

Veigar seems to have gone completely missing – he was picked a few times and looked insane in every spot, but nobody seems to care. He outscales everything, farms for free, loves playing against the meta junglers and can easily beat things like Ahri and the other control mages.

Why are we picking this nerfed to the ground, no damage, no scaling mid laner?

Half of the supports in the game destroy her – you can always pick Lulu top later in the draft to really make her life hell – and if she ever gets picked first, you can counter with Malzahar, Zilean, Kai’Sa. There’s so many choices, and yet we tunnel on these inferior picks.

LeBlanc is the perfect win lane lose game champion, and people just love winning lane and pretending that the rest of the game is a wrap. I’m going to go insane if I see a LeBlanc picked early in the draft again. It hurts my eyes.
