Faker is trying-hard new champions on a regular basis, and Vex in the hands of the Devil promises to become a powerful card of T1 in the 2022 season.
Up to now, Vex is a relatively interesting champion in solo queue. Although not the “Traditional Wizard” as what Riot Games describes, but this cranky Yordle at least still brings positive experiences for users. With a set of moves that can both poke, harass, and chop into the opponent’s squad, Vex is an extremely annoying opponent, especially when controlled by players with a lot of sophistication. to take advantage of her strengths, typically Faker.
On his personal stream, Devil King also frankly commented that Vex is a very interesting champion, and he is extremely fond of this champion. Not that, since its debut, Vex is still the name Faker uses the most when climbing Korean rank. The achievement of captain T1 with this new champion is also very impressive. He used to have a streak of 18 consecutive wins when using Vex, and Faker’s win rate with this champion by the end of the 2021 season is up to more than 87% after 29 games.
By the 2022 season, this rate has dropped significantly, only 56%, but with the context of resetting the rank at the beginning of the season, this is quite understandable, because when looking at the match history, you can see a lot of matches. and Faker’s Vex still has a huge KDA, but the team is devastated.
In terms of gameplay, Faker’s Vex is no different in rune build and equipment, with Electric Shock in the main rune and Inspiration rune in the side rune. The Mythical Equipment is still the Eternal Ice Staff, increasing the ability to control close range and optimizing the skill set to harass the enemy squad in combat.
The point that makes Vex different in Faker’s hands is, of course, his personal technique. Although he is no longer a match in lane, Faker’s superstar qualities have never faded, he is still able to trade skills profitably, observe and control the map extremely well. to perform effective roaming phases. With the feature of being able to participate in fights from a relatively long distance, Faker’s reasonable movement situations have greatly contributed to the successful teamfights of his team.
With what is showing in solo queue, Faker’s Vex will be an extremely valuable card to watch in the upcoming LCK Spring 2022. However, many fans also expressed concern about the fate of this Yordle girl, because it is often difficult for generals favored by the Devil King to create a lot of highlights… living a long life in the meta game, and once beaten nerf, only… a few years face down before he can raise his head.
