Record of FotM champs

#1Lord_WoobiePosted 4/26/2013 9:43:02 PM
Would anyone be interested in me keeping a record of champs as they become popular, get nerfed or overshadowed, and fall out of favor over the remainder of season 3? It'd be more of a trivia thing than anything else, but I think it'd be interesting to keep track of how the meta evolves and why.

Ok, I've decided to make a record of the following, dating from the pre-season 3 patch (Nami and Jungle overhaul). I'll update it periodically (most likely with each major patch).

Popular meta tactics
Emphasized stats
Popular item highlights
Popular team comps (general, role-based)
Champs popularized by the meta (why they became popular, what they did, whether they had niche builds, why their popularity declined [if applicable])

Udyr, Xerath, Zac and Zyra are not popular.

Karma speculated op? Is this a joke?

Udyr's becoming fotm since his recent buffs, as is Zac due to his showing in LCS.

Zyra was FotM at early points of S3.

Xerath I could probably move over to the Anticipated FotM section, since he's not played very often yet but I think he will be.

Karma's probably going to become more popular with the buffs they gave her AFTER her rework - they really are very good. I'm not saying she's OP or that she's going to be OP, I'm saying she'll become popular.

Nasus.

Korean Ezreal.

Zed.

TF.

Thresh.

Oddly enough Hecarim is a priority ban quite often, but I never see him picked if he isn't banned. hmm...

are you doing high level play records, general records, or yoloqueue silver+gold?

cause malphite and shen haven't been popular ban status for a while now, not to say they weren't ever banned, but others were more popular to ban
