It can be obviously observe that Conqueror has been totally overpowered since Patch 9.23 was released in November and have you ever questioned “ We are not doing right with this Rune in its order” or something like that ?
At the moment when notifications about Changes for Runes came, Most of the attention was directed to new Rune named OmniStone. This rune was displacements for one of the reason to pic Ezreal-Kleptomancy and it really brought not only fun but also specialist in the way players weild it.
It seemed like nobody care about Conqueror until We all knew how often we meet it in loading games’screens.
Conqueror have just “conquered’ all other colleagues easily. Arcane Comet was designed for newbie only when Electocute went out of time. Phase Rush still get respect from fans but honesty, it can only be used as a solution for difficult deals. Lissandra, Lux and tanker-supports are small numbers of Champs can take full of Aftershock’s profit. Summon Aery, no one in Diamonds Rank wanna click it; trust me.
So, after being balanced, what has made Conqueror more … unbalanced?
Fist of all, the reason is in the method how Conqueror gain stacks quickly. Now, with every single skill that deal dame, Conqueror get 2 stacks and after reaching 10, the owners would smash the opponent by huge amout of damage and heal for a portion of damage.
Explanation from Riot can not reject the truth that there are too many Champions start the games with The Axe Symbol Rune. Most of junglers love the way Conqueror run such as Lee Sin or Noctune because of the fact that they can take down the enemy within a combo.
Some Mages take it to midlane and even Markmans choose it as advantages of gaining stacks for 8 seconds let them sublimate in team fights.
On the other hand, Top-laners and tankers in particular are not able to compare with other Roles in total damage to champions. There are absolutely no way out for them at these patches and Rumor about deleting Conqueror come out every News.
Each Rune was created for its own abilities and passive which can be weild in games depend on Champions and tactics. However, in this preseason, Conqueror has no challenge.
Calm down, this is preseason, thousands of changes will be explore next year. Games’developing groups have had their considerations so why don’t we just find out our styles and enjoy the matches. We are not conquerors, we are gamers.
