During the last 2022 Pre-Season period, there were 2 factors that were most complained about by League of Legends gamers, which were the Dragon Transformation Technique and the Deadly Speed gem. The reason is because this rune is making some champions too overpowered and filling out many of the weaknesses they encounter in the laning phase. Even this gem also makes Yasuo, Yone, Jax… extremely powerful at level 1, while a series of ADCs like Caitlyn, Jinx, Aphelios become meta in professional tournaments.
The fact that professional teams ban 1 of 3 generals Caitlyn, Jinx, Aphelios and then choose the remaining 2 characters will continue in tournaments.
Listening to the opinion of the gaming community, Riot recently made an announcement about the nerf of the Deadly Speed gem in the upcoming version 12.2. This made the LoL community happy when this awesome gem was finally edited. However, the joy was short-lived, when gamers discovered how Riot edited this gem on the PBE server, that joy quickly turned to anger when they made this gem point too unbalanced. is equal to.
Riot’s edit makes the already strong Deadly Pace even more unbalanced
Specifically, on the PBE server, Riot will edit this rune point in the direction that the bonus attack speed will increase based on level. However, for some reason, Riot made Deadly Tempo provide up to 21% attack speed per stack at level 3 with melee champions (a larger number than what this rune provides currently). in). At level 15, it gave 75% attack speed per stack and made Deadly Temper champions too powerful.
Maybe Riot’s original idea was to let that 75% bonus attack speed be the stats at 6 stacks that the champion received from level 15 onwards. However, due to a bug related to the lines of the code of League of Legends, Deadly Pace provides up to 75% attack speed with each stack with melee champions. The result is a bunch of ridiculous things like Tryndamere having no equipment but gaining 4.03 attack speed or Diana having 7.52 attack speed for example.
Tryndamere doesn’t have any equipment that can get 4.03 attack speed with just Deadly Speed rune
Hopefully Riot Games will realize this error and start working on the Deadly Pace gem soon. Basically, the balance is in the direction so that the amount of attack speed that this gem provides scales with champion level, but it has to be in a reasonable number, 75% per stack is too big.
