This week showed Gragas' rising popularity, followed closely by the rise of Shyvana and Hecarim. A problem for a while now, Hecarim is a true terror of top lane and the jungle--he can even go mid. As such, his ban rate has continued to climb. Champions like Shyvana are gaining popularity as top lane's meta shifts toward taking teleport and smite, meaning a champion that can clear an early jungle camp to gain an advantage is favored in the current state of the lane.
Unfortunately due to technical difficulties, this week's episode of League Trends is not airing. However, we've gathered up all the statistics for the increase and decrease in pick, win, and ban rates so you guys can stay in touch with the current meta.
We have the weekly episode of League Trends from Cloth5
showing last week's ban, pick, and win rate patterns! As usual, stats are transcribed below to be used as a reference for the past week.
