As we all know, a few days ago, Riot Games announced an extremely remarkable test for general Pyke at the PBE server. Specifically, Pyke will have 2 new features, the first is the ability to instantly finish the eye when an ally is nearby. The second feature is that the finishing blood mark of Death Deep’s ultimate will increase when Pyke uses this skill to defeat champions, minions, terrible monsters….
Pyke’s ultimate has the ability to increase the kill milestone based on the champion, the monster it kills
Immediately after this feature was tested on the PBE server, a wave of extremely harsh criticism appeared. The reason is because gamers think that these features of Riot only make Pyke a more toxic champion, but do not help remove this champion’s ability to go Mid. Even the ward finish feature also makes Pyke Mid to force the map more strongly when accompanied by a strong Jungler like Lee Sin or Xin Zhao, for example.
Pyke’s passive also has the ability to finish eyes
Then, increasing the kill milestone in the ultimate makes Pyke’s play style unreasonably strong. With regular Assassins, they need to launch their skills reasonably to defeat the opponent as quickly as possible. However, the new feature allows Pyke to finish off the opponent with only his ultimate, the remaining skills can be missed. Obviously, this is too absurd that Riot should not have given this champion.
Gamers have been constantly criticizing the way Riot tweaked Pyke in the past few days
As a result, Riot’s new features have received a lot of criticism and extremely negative feedback. This forced Riot Games to remove all the new features they tested for Pyke after only about 2 days of application. Up to now, Pyke on the PBE server has returned to the same as the official version.
Riot Games recently had to withdraw Pyke’s edits after being criticized too harshly by gamers
Perhaps this is another lesson for Riot in adding new features or trying to fix a certain champion. It would be bad if they made an already overpowered, unbalanced skill stronger, which was completely absurd.
