After the changes to the preseason 2023 and patch 12.23, tanks are dominating the meta and becoming more and more powerful
Tanks have officially been crowned after the preseason 2023 with lots of additions and adjustments from Mythic items. Besides them, fighters are also storming the Rift with the combo Mythic item + Ravenous Hydra.
However, this gameplay will not be as effective as it is at the moment because since Ravenous Hydra will be nerfed quite a bit in patch 12.23 and the tanks will take full reign. So which champions are most capable of countering the current meta?
Speaking of tanks, fighters and skirmishers with standard damage and high health will be the first options that players think of. Especially in the top lane with one specific champion that players can think of.
Fiora can easily take down one heavy champion with her healing and true damage kit. However, pressuring the enemy from the first stage is not easy, you will have to pressure the opponent as best as possible, the rest will be determined by your personal skills.
In the jungle area, Hecarim should be your go-to champion to counter tanks. Hecarim has huge damage over time and high resistance and recovery. Hecarim could easily all in and start a team fight that they wouldn’t have any chance to win.
His standard amount of damage and high movement speed will make it hard for any immobile champion to deal with, especially for tanks. The constant healing and inflicting high damage from his Q made the combat even harder for the opponents to deal with.
The mid-lane has quite a few champions who can go up well against tanks, like Yone for example. In the right hands, and with enough knowledge, he can carry any games with ease and absolutely terrorize the opponent’s both back line and frontline.
However, Yone’s power spike generally comes after two items, as this means he will have a 100 percent critical strike chance. You’ll be able to output an extremely large amount of damage in a very short space of time. Combine that will Blade of the Ruined King, no tanks are dared to 1vs1 you.
Without too much debate, Vayne with the Silver Bolts is the No. 1 frontline destroyer in League of Legends. The true damage dealt from her will make any opponent tremble.
However, her early game is pretty terrible, and she can easily fall off if not played correctly so try to farm safe from then. In the late game is when her true form comes, Vayne can melt down tanks easily with her Silver Bolts, and if she gets approached, her Q and E can keep her safe from a distance.
