In this week's League Trends, the Worlds effect is noticeable--Jayce climbed in pick increases as did Fiddlesticks, both being champions used in Worlds to great avail (even if Fiddlesticks only made one game, he made one that counted).The ban rates continued to adjust after Nidalee and Yasuo were hit with great nerfs a few weeks ago, with Gnar continuously rising along with Rammus.
It's been a wild past few months as Summoner's Rift constantly gets updates on the PBE. The latest updates have had a lot of splash arts--so we figured it's time to play as champions with splash arts that have been redone recently. All splash arts after the new Caitlyn splash art released this June are eligible, so please let us know if we missed one or two. New skins do not count.
It was Korea against China in the finals--a finals where everything mattered but everyone knew the outcome before it started. We asked you guys who would win Worlds and the result was almost unanimously Samsung Galaxy White; with DanDy jungling as impeccably as he was and Mata supporting like no other, there was zero room for another team to usurp the title from SSW. Despite that, the games were intense, serving as a pinnacle of what eSports could be and showcasing the season four meta perfectly.
