After Keria brought ADC to play in the SP position, the League of Legends community saw TheShy bring SP to the top lane and “sell” Jax.
In recent days, Jax is considered one of the strongest champions in the top lane with a towering pick and ban rate in ranked mode. Even in the professional arena, Jax also has a 70.3% chance of appearing in the pick and ban phase in the 4 major tournaments LCK, LPL, LCS and LEC. Even many players like Brokenblade, Kiin, YSKM, etc. are holding a 100% win rate with Jax in the tournament.
Therefore, the Weapon Master is a name that is receiving a lot of attention from the League of Legends community, including how to use it and how to counter it. And recently, LPL star TheShy has tested a new way of playing to “bury” Jax in a simple and funny way:
TheShy Alistar Top vs Jax
Accordingly, TheShy brought out Alistar to confront the card that is dominating the current meta – Jax. In the video, TheShy showed an advantage when Jax’s Counterattack (E) repeatedly lost its effectiveness to Alistar’s Bull (W).
Not only that, the hard control from Crush (Q) and Trample (E) also allows the Bull-headed Monster to actively pursue or retreat, which helps TheShy activate Electric Shock and completely block it. Jax’s use of Deadly Pace in teamfights. This is also a huge advantage if being ganked by teammates in the laning phase.
In addition, turret with Alistar is very difficult, because this card has too many controls, so even a small mistake can cause Alistar to “flip” in the turret. In contrast, with its own rigidity, Alistar can easily cross the tower if there is support from teammates.
For the rest of the game, according to the stats, TheShy team was probably completely “out” of the opponent, so we can’t accurately assess Alistar’s strength in teamfights. But based on equipment, it is highly likely that this card will take on the role of resisting and pursuing the opponent’s main force.
Thanks to this gameplay of TheShy, the League of Legends community has a new option to confront Jax in the current meta.
