After more than a full season of domination with her “broken” AP builds, Kai’Sa is likely to top the list of soon League of Legends Patch 13.15 nerfs.
AD carry is a regular meta-topping in League of Legends. For Kai’sa, Riot Games is hard at work hiding her strong Nashor’s Tooth build, according to League lead developer Matt Leung-Harrison.
Riot is nerfing AP Kai’sa build
Kai’Sa has been in and out of the League metagame since her release in 2018, both competitively and in normal ranked play. She was a major player in multiple Worlds tournaments in her early years and has since emerged as a strong bot lane champion in season 13.
At the time of writing, the champion holds an insane 43% pick rate, along with an astounding 54.07% win rate and a 24.89% ban rate in Emerald+ rank, according to League statistics site LoLalytics. She is also considered as the highest rank and tier ADC champions on the leaderboard.
Kai’sa success is mostly due to her AP skills. Players that build her with Statikk Shiv, Nashor’s Tooth, Guinsoo’s Rageblade, and Rabadon’s Deathcap can inflict massive damage with her Void Seeker ability.
Riot’s choice to target her couldn’t have come at a better moment for the League community; just recently, players have took the issue to Reddit together to call out the AD carry “unhealthy” and demand that the balancing team look into giving out substantial nerfs as soon as possible.
Angry players noted out that Zeri was savaged by the devs in League Patch 13.12 for having huge AP strengths, whereas Kai’Sa was left out.
While the League devs have yet to decide what changes Kai’Sa will receive in the upcoming update, players have stated that they expect the devs to pull out the big hammer with the ADC’s forthcoming nerfs.
The nerfs are set to be released in Patch 13.15 on August 2.
