Today, let's talk about a league of legends champion that has a very interesting history, Aatrox. He is really the only champion that was ever removed or deleted from league of legends. Even though he was broken and an op champion for season 10 to climb ranked, that doesn't mean he deserves the treatment to be removed. I love the aatrox rework and I think aatrox is one of the best top laners to climb with in season 10, but not everyone feels that way in league of legends...

      @potterinhe11 What can you do. These meta changes and champ reworks only ever serves the need of the pro field, not the need of general players. Even if just one player making the champ look too OP, it could cause nerfs or rework. (Such as Faker causing season 5 version of Ryze getting reworked because of his insane perma snare combo)

    • potterinhe11

      I would have been happy if they left him alone after the mini rework, I was just starting to enjoy playing him after years of him being un-fun. They completely upended the player base of the champion.

    • Adriel

      Same here, Aatrox and kayle main. Quit and tried to go back but they have butchered him. Dont play anymore and wont unless they revert him back to the REAL Aatrox

    • Lai Sensei

      @Acidgolem213 It still falls off late right? That's why AD build is still the preferred build for many. AP Aatrox sounds more fitting for URFs.

    • Acidgolem213

      @Lai Sensei back in the days people actually uses the ult as a pseudo burst because remember back then aatrox E used to deal magic damage but scale with AD that means he could be an AP poke burst mage early game and the ult +E base damage would delete a guy

    Hehe goredrinker aatroz goes brrrr


    What i hate is Irelia mains couldnt see the Butt on one skin they went mad they listened when chromas released a lot hated it they listened When Aatrox mains cried they ignored it.


    He was Neglected Pushed aside. But all i know i dont have fun with league anymore all i remember. I was still laughing playing him. Well used to.

  • Blutseuche

    I still like the new Aatrox way more. Riot messed up, aint arguing that tho. Lets see, maybe the Ruined King will be very like old Aatrox.

    A rioter went on to hashinshins stream and talked about it. Aatrox was shit for a really long time, they changed him to hold him over until his rework, that made him busted but they didn't bother nerfing him because he was getting reworked. If it weren't for him getting reworked they would've nerfed him and he would've been shit and everyone would've wanted the rework.

    You know my friends were playing league and I was the only one that wasnt then when they invited me to play I saw him and was like "oh he looks cool" and played him a bit but still lost then I decided when I could get a pc i'd main him but I just found this out now. :(

  • chisito

    i prefer the reworked version, the old Aatrox was boring, easy, and lacked expression of skill. The only thing I miss about old Aatrox is its character design. This is just my opinion and I understand that many people think differently.

  • Grady Sale
    Grady Sale

    I was an old Aatrox main, started playing him at his release and for years he was the only champion I would ever play. There was not a single champion that I was as good at or had the same level of knowledge for and there never will be. Through thick and thin, before his mini-rework even when he was regarded as a troll pick, I would play him. I had almost a 90% winrate on him and I would just play him into any matchup without having to worry about it. He's still my highest mastery champ but I don't really ever play him anymore because I don't care for the rework. I still play league but nowhere near as much or as seriously as I did when I still had my main. Ever since there has never been a champion that caught my eye to main and I still don't really have a main because nothing feels the same.

    The old Aatrox pre mini rework was the first champion I got a Penta with in ranked. He was also who carried me all the way to Platinum. Then when urf came around, his ultimate was really fun to play with. All you had to do was press Q and then R. You one shot everything around you.

  • Nayeonz

    aatrox is my first penta damn i really love the old one

    Haha aurelion sol go brrr. Seriously, I mained Volibear and Mordekaiser, and they got changed. Voli lost his healing and his flip, and is no longer fun anymore - just a meta slave champion. Mordekaiser lost the feel of 1v9 and press R to 1 shot someone to become easier than garen and the most obnoxious broken shit in the game. Every time they rework a champion, that champion is ruined and becomes giga op. Except ASol, because they don't care about us asol mains so they just rework him without warning and pretend like it never happened. Champ is useless, riot, do something.

  • TrynTrox

    i have it on good authority that the first season 11 champion " the ruined king " will play like Old Aatrox. shush i was never here

  • Yoda1285

    I suggest they rename Aatrox as well. "Bouncy Castle" would be a fitting name, cause that is what it looks like when he uses any of his abilities. It is just so bad...

    Here's my personal fan-theory: Aatrox himself wasn't erased; just his old host. You see, as a member of the Darkin race, Aatrox is forced to be little more than a living weapon, who can only act on his own by possessing the bodies of those who wield him. If my guess is correct, every time he possesses a new host, he mixes some of his martial prowess with the techniques of whoever he's in control of. If that's the case, what we're seeing isn't an erased champion, but one simply wielding a new body.

    Aatrox and kha zix where the first championships I ever bought on here way back in season 3 I used to love him even before the rework , it just feels odd to me how the rework changed him it feel like there was better ways to modernize him then changing him entirely some of his old skills where still good like the old q and e >.> E was his blades of torment right not his w? Idk but yeah he's so different now his q feels like something that would have worked for like a riven rework not aatrox.

  • v1asec

    I used to play Ryze before one of his many reworks. I think I felt similarly about the changes. While I understand why targeted spells are being removed in favor of skillshots, it wasn't the same champion anymore. I have a few skins for Ryze, but I don't play him anymore, and I have no plans to do so, either.

      not really; they still kept his "anti-magic" theme, his Q is similar to his old one, the old R went into his W, and the E used to give movement speed in one direction and now it's a dash.

  • Destin Finkbiner

    I desperately wished that the full vgu had just been a new darkin champ being released. Flesh out the darkin lore, maybe give him something other then a massive sword, and just make a new champ. Aatrox was finally in a good spot, had an interesting build, and was a blast to play. I miss him dearly

    Well all the enemy needs to do is get close to Aatrox and make his q useless since he cant hit them from close. Like seriously. He is seen as the god of war, a scary darkin that will destroy you..but get too close to him and you will be fine. I played against riven and that's exactly what happens..she close distance and destroys me.
