Today, let's talk about Aatrox. With Aatrox's recent rework and changes on patch 9.10, let's discuss what makes Aatrox overpowered now. Aatrox runes and Aatrox builds have all been changed with the new Aatrox changes, and even hashinshin has been enjoying playing him again. Is Aatrox overpowered? Is Aatrox the new best top laner? Is he S tier on the league of legends patch 9.10 and 9.11 tier list? Thats the question we will answer in todays league of legends documentary video.

    • Alija

      @Qbito10pl i played in eu and na. in eu they are focused more and are more serious about the game, thats why they play better and thats why they are more toxic. simple as that. it is a zoo, i agree, but its not what we are talking about. im personaly from eu and im a decent player but im not like other players. i keep cool and calm

    i dont play lol anymore, haven't played in years and dont plan to play it anytime in the future, so why did i click on this video? because when i quitted the game Atrox was so bad that we used to call him Anthrax, so yeah, i wanted to see how an unsalvageable mess rose to power.

  • ヨリヌ

    From his rise before his rework and downfall, to another decimating revive of all time. Aatrox is revive himself!

    • ヨリヌ

      May his Revive be remembered

  • Audairevonetta

    Riot deserves NOTHING for this change. Riot put 0 thought into making Aatrox good at all. Everything should be credited to Hashinshin for his big dick intellect.

  • gibarel

    my main problem with the reworked aatrox is that he went from an AA chamo with utility skills to an riven 2.0 caster champ

    yeyyyy 48% wr again

  • jhk655

    how they possibly be playing on zero ping? Even if they have a server on their local network, there'd still be some latency. and could be pretty high depending on how smart whoever set up their network was. My point is that There's no such thing as zero network latency. even when you spin up a virtual server on your own machine, and then ping it, it still shows at least 0.5ms of latency.

    • GeorgeAR_RD

      I think what he meant by "zero ping" is that they play on such a low latency that for the human, there is virtually no input lag nor delay in the commands you give into the game. Basically everything flows to such a smooth levels that the reaction times here are held back by how fast the player is at reacting.

  • TheLastAatroxMain

    nothing good about this aatrox rework hes weaker than before and even more useless now that his revive is getting completely gutted. he sucks dick againts auto attacking champs like jax yi and irelia. nothing rewarding about his Kit and its incredibly hard to hit moving running targets. once u waste ur 1 and only damage ability ur fucked and level 1 its 14 seconds long might as well never use it until level 5. old aatrox was never bad and can fight anything as long as u can kite well and get fed early. saying this rework is good is just taking a big shit on all of us aatrox mains.

  • mouine mhb

    yes praise riot for making a good 5v5 champ in to a op busted champ you either pick or ban

  • Nooo Disaster
    Nooo Disaster

    Aatrox needs to be hard gutted. You said in the video yourself, he's OP. In top, he's oppressive early game but still scales into a late game monster that will heal anything and revive

    These videos are always so useless and pointless. But I click anyways because its story time.

    The only problem is that people will complain and use his top lane ranking to beg for nerfs. I don't think he's op since riot added some ways to counter him. Btw just play yasuo into Aatrox and e into him when he uses q

    Bottom line, Riot can't make LoL a fun game for casual players without fking up competitive meta. At the rate ARAM is going, sooner or later they'll have to release another map or game mode to keep casual players interested. Or it may end up like Dota2.

  • Average Joe Bro
    Average Joe Bro

    Uhhh, I feel like this video missed the mark pretty severely. I think this is a terrible misjudgment of aatrox right now. He's probably one of the best and most broken champions currently. Every phase of the game he's great and if he's fed he's probably one of the biggest no counterplay champs to play against. It's great that he has a diverse range of options now... mid, top, etc. but it's also kind of a testament to how insane he is right now. It really doesn't matter where you play him currently since he can play into nearly anything and do well.

  • Vastayashai'rei

    4:22 nice ww bug. (sound).

  • Tom

    Playing against aatrox as anything that doesn't have plenty of mobility is actual cancer at this point. Its one thing to be able to dodge his spells, but honestly, the MOMENT you miss a dodge one time, you are going to be hit with everything he's got. Combine that with his dash that he can use at any point during the q animations, and unless you've got yourself something that can either hold him down for a while or escape him, you're going to get chunked hard.

  • Red_Dragon_Scale

    @1:58 I don't understand. How is 380(+210% bonus AD) physical damage on a hybrid champion "very little damage?" That often ends up being almost 600 premitigation damage on top of being a high utility ability. Like, yeah the other parts of her kit are better damage-wise, so you use her E for utility, but it isn't like it is a weak ability.

  • Mike Canion
    Mike Canion

    Aatrox is too clunky for me, idk. Like, his Q is soooo slow, it's not my playstyle as an Assasin and mage main. When you get fed on him tho, he chunks a lot

  • MrNightmarekill

    0:54 look at that sexy old Akali, most skilled champ back in the day Kap

  • Sean Lee Bush
    Sean Lee Bush

    LOOK AT HOW LOADED THAT KIT IS. Meanwhile you look at Zed, no unique passives anymore and scales with AD, that's it. It's just crazy to think how different some champs are. I wish they would give Zed a complete rework like this honestly; I don't think other Zed players would disagree. He is really fun to learn and play, but with how troublesome he is due to high ban rate and this linear kit, he wont ever get to see some unique play-ability like this. I just wish he had something more in his kit. Seeing that reset on Aatrox after being such a strong champ already compared to where Zed is right now, feels really cold man.

  • ArceusShaymin

    You know, I honestly dusted my Aatrox shard after the 9.9 changes because I figured he just wouldn't be playable and I wanted Yuumi. Kinda sad I did now, but what can you do; I'll get another eventually. Now let's just hope Riot can adjust poor Yuumi's power budget properly, too. Girl's got like a 38% winrate and it's sad because I like hopping between champs and being a funny little Jojo stand that spams Summoner Heal and getting to play "please walk towards the champ I'm trying to hit" every time I press Q.

    3 minute mark before u even brought up aatrox, yeah down voting and closing the page

  • cursedshadow

    hes just a really better darius atm, outsustains/outdmgs tanks and gets shred from conq+BC, can deal with ranged champs and melees, both have insane level 1, has no mana, has 1v2 potential, relies less on team than darius, can split push to force 4v3s( his turret dmg is worse tho), has insane TFing and pseudo-engage, darius ult true dmg for like 1k true dmg max stacks, while 3rd hotspot aatrox does 600-700dmg at almost no cooldown during ult. I play both darius and aatrox, but i find myself not ever wanting to replace aatrox as hes superior in every aspect.

  • Pootrick

    I played aatrox and mastered him when he had his double e ability. He was so broken then. Now, he's more balanced since it rewards players who are really good at him. He's fun to play, now i've got a win rate of 70%.

    Speaking of power budget, if this gets out of hand in pro play, Riot needs to REMOVE the heal increase on ult.

      Just change his ult to selfheal increase only

    I love seeing more people talking about and play aatrox is aatrox mains only have each other and it’s nice to finally see him in the spotlight in a positive way

  • Luckywind

    just nerf aatrox already, that movement speed should be half. its not fair to see a fed aatrox chasing ur adc ass with over 600 movement speed, the single champ which can get huge movement speed is janna. this is just bad for riot games. as a supp main im dissapointed because riot buffs assasins, tanks, fighters but not buffing adc s (actual champ stats, not items because the items can be abused by other champs which are not adc) and bringing back ardent meta or atleast banner of command.

  • Mr Zed

    Why does akali's E do little dmg? 380+ 210% of bonus AD xDDDD

    • Claytor Yurnero
      Claytor Yurnero

      To be fair the standard Akali build only gets ~40 Bonus AD, so thats only around 450-500 damage when maxed, plus its a telegraphed spell that can endanger herself.
