The solid barrier of the squad – the Resist class of League of Legends is gradually receiving less attention from Riot Games in the past time.
Besides the characters capable of dealing great damage, any squad needs one or two sturdy Resist champions. They will become solid shields, safe props for the ADC or Mage that can confidently deal damage to the enemy squad. If there are no Tank champions in the squad, the squad will be easily penetrated, the mains will be continuously targeted without anyone protecting.
Any squad needs a solid “wall”
Despite such an important role, sadly, the Resist class receives very little attention from Riot Games. The most concrete proof is that the last time the “father” of League of Legends released a Resist champion who could go Singles – Ornn was almost 5 years ago. During that time, there were a series of ADCs like Zeri, Nilah or the powerful Gladiator Gwen was born.
The Resist class does not bring many benefits to Riot Games
In a game like League of Legends, showing individual skills and performing complex moves is always the top goal of the player. Not to mention that almost everyone wants to deal a large amount of damage instead of having to endure it for someone else to do the job. Therefore, choosing strong carry champions has long been a priority for players, especially high-difficulty champions like Lee Sin, Riven or “He” Yasuo.
Because of that, the sales earned from selling skins for champions that require high skills always bring great profits to Riot Games. Contrary to the Resistance class when there are very few players who love these champions. Since then, Riot has invested less and elaborated on the upper class in League of Legends.
The Resist class is very difficult to balance
If you can’t attract players with looks, why don’t Riot Games try to increase the power so that the Resist class will be chosen more? However, this problem is even more difficult. If you are a veteran player, you will not forget how the monster named Amumu Sun Shield has swept every ranked match. The Sorrowful Mummy and Solar Shield were then too difficult to take down, but had a huge amount of damage returned in combat.
Even Amumu at that time could easily solo Baron in the 20th minute of the match
Even up to now, the Solar Shield item, which is very popular with Resist champions, is still very strong. Assassins, Gladiators like Yone or Diana combined with this equipment will become extremely sturdy but still ensure a huge amount of output damage.
Yone Shield Sun is currently the top pick in many ranked matches
Currently, Riot has made more active moves with the Resist class when preparing to launch K’Sante with a skill set that requires a high level from players. Hopefully with their “200 years of experience”, the Riot Games team will create a great Resist champion for players to pay more attention to this champion class. Game4V will continuously update Riot’s announcements and updates to readers as soon as possible.
