DK player ShowMaker predicts that Riot’s new update will have a direct impact on the summer LCK tournament to be held in mid-June.
At the end of May, LOL released updated version 12.10 “Endless fighting”. All champions have increased base health, armor, and magic resistance in this update. DK player ShowMaker predicts that Riot’s new update will have a direct impact on the summer LCK tournament to be held in mid-June.
On May 27, the Korean reporter had a chance to meet ShowMaker in the team practice room in Yeongdeungpo, Seoul. Before the live interview, the reporter asked how ShowMaker feels about update 12.10 after 3 days of practicing and climbing the Korean rank. DK’s mid laner responded very candidly, “This is the first time I’ve felt such a big change. The face of the match is completely different from before.”
“The generals will no longer die as easily as before. If it was the previous version, in the case of concentrated firepower, those generals should have died in the fight, then in version 12.10, there will be many cases where those generals can survive and get out of the fight. .”
ShowMaker also shared that some mage champions like Orianna and Syndra have also indirectly been buffed through this update. “Previously, the ranged champion’s stats were not good, while the melee champion’s stats were very high. This time, the attributes of all champions are improved at the same time, which will benefit champions with poor base attributes.” – ShowMaker added.
Showmaker also predicts that the situation of LCK matches will also change with this update. DK’s player said: “With the increase in health, champions will not die as easily as before. If nothing changes (summer), the teams that have a slow attack style, and the champion power increases steadily over time, will have more advantages than the teams that pursue a fast attack style with continuous teamfights. customary.”
ShowMaker added: “The update just came out, so I haven’t had much time to practice. After version 12.10 was released, the situation of matches in solo queue and in scrims had a huge difference. Compared to ranked, scrims won’t have many kills. This is even more evident in version 12.10. And it’s very likely that the games with no kills in the first 20 minutes like before will reappear.”
