Today, let's talk about one of the most broken champions to ever exist in league of legends..., the patch where lucian played urf in solo queue, and his place in league of legends history. From a champion who was quite strong and was looking to be nerfed, to now being one of the most exciting and best champions in the game. Lucian's combos, abilities, and mechanics are some of the best things in league of legends. This is a video covering the history of lucian, and the history of league of legends, and Season 10 League of Legends, Rise of the Elements League of Legends.

      How about you do a video about adcs ? And why it's the worst role in everyone's opinion. Also maybe the really low winrate of Kai'sa who's a really good champion, and maybe the low play rate and winrate of Xayah. Giving some ideas, if you don't know what to talk about. Good videos btw ! I always like to know things about league before I started playing it.

    What a journey; first we had URF lucian, now on PBE we have URF Senna. The more things change the more they stay the same.

    Combos and spell weave Yeah... Not like there's any other adc like that...


    They need to bring back twisted treeline as a permanent gamemode Much more fun than nexus blitz

    Lucian my favorite champ


    Let's face it - if played with the fullest efficiency, Lucien couldn't lose lane to a majority of other champs. Draven was the closest for a while (pre djinn anyway. Not sure what the meta was after that), but if you had cait, twitch, vayne, ashe, mf etc with the wrong support, lucien could walk all over you and then hard carry and you couldn't really trade your way out of it

  • Jared

    Dude, I'd take a hammer to regular LoL if I could just have perma URF Screw it, lets get more URF types: SURF: Only aquatic champs like Nami, Fizz, and Naut TURF: KotH style game NURF: URF but champs have reduced stats to make ganks more important

  • Broseph Stinson
    Broseph Stinson

    Unpopular opinion, I fucking hate urf, too much facerolling, too much stupid shit happening. Sorry I like normal League. I even hate the URF deathmatch in Nexus blitz.

  • noone_should _know_me
    noone_should _know_me

    I play urf for 10-20 games and then I go back to normals because urf feels boring after a while

  • Nick Wolf

    Or maybe kept shit in the game and not make them seasonal bring back twisted treeline bring back urf bring back the gaurdian game bring all that shit and just leave it GAURENTEE with more variety you'll keep more players-_-

  • Dominiorrr

    6:20 not 25% more damage to minions, but 33⅓%. It's a little mistake though, nice vid anyways :)

  • Flatface Puggo

    League needs a TURBO MODE just like Dota2 so you can do a 15min normal game when you don't really have time to jump into a 45min normal game.

    not all of us, urf is dumb AF

    So Huni did NOT create top Lucian. Heh

  • Enhancer_Senpai

    lucian combos are very far away from the most iconic things in this game. Very far.

  • Wouter S
    Wouter S

    Yea no I don't like lucian I think he's extremely strong and I also play him myself he feels very easy just auto E auto q (obv situational too but most of the time you can get away with this since rarely any adc beats you early) and someone literally dies it's pretty braindead easy to get a lead on him lol..

  • Sanguine Aurora
    Sanguine Aurora

    6:30 Good math tho. But increasing %75 to 100% is not "25% buff" it is 33.3% 25 is 1/3 of 75

    And you'd think they learned from their mistakes... Then they release Akali

      the problem is he get double gold efficency just by existing because of his passive. MF has similar passive but she isn't that stupid.

  • Jvc

    so riot has no good playtesting? you literally only need to Play this Version of lucian for 20 seconds and you would know it was broken at the time hahaha. I bet there's not a single person at riot higher than silver

    was lucian change (lower range independent of the dash change) necessary? like was he broken even before the rework?

  • idonotmakevidsyet

    Actually a lot of people including me hate urf. If you play enough of urf it devolves into a tryhard gamemode where no one plays "for fun" champions. Instead you camp under your own tower only to get killed over and over again because you tried to play ap gp.

    Seriously now lucian is in a pretty good spot. A good Lucian player can get out of any lane and crush mid game nonetheless. (late he is a bit weaker cause u need perfect positioning all the time otherwise ull just get nuked by a LB or sth similar)

    The diffrence between 10 seconds and 14 seconds at 45% since really play to a champs strengths really is nit a huge change since that is a 1 ability addition to the combo since E is -2 seconds, and Q is, and W is all when passive is proced that is still 6 seconds off of an ability that is a flash and gives a bunch of damage with movespeed alongside a slow, what really is a problem is tge fact that a champ like this is fine in the current meta like, can we just delete aphelios please what the hell is that thing even or quiana mass cc on an assassin yep sure thats fine

      @Seraph821 I wouldn't say a faster game is more or less strategic than a slower game. strategy is strategy. it's just different types of strategy.

      The reasons i quit the game bro: All my fav champs got reworked-Katarina/LeBlanc/Galio/Graves/GankPlank and others. No other alternative beside ARAM(Which sucks) And i played it like 8 years

    • Brennan Lu
      Brennan Lu

      Of course. There's 200 collective years of experience at that company.

    • Seraph821

      My impression is that they are designing Wild Rift to meet this demand without changing the League experience on PC, and the recent URF rotations have probably helped gather some data for balancing Wild Rift if it is the faster paced game I expect. Haven't looked much into recent gameplay though to support my theory. Normal Summoners Rift is slower but there are a lot of reasons to enjoy it over a faster less strategic game.

  • Jamie Masterton
    Jamie Masterton

    Ive been playing league for years and the joy URF brings is a nice break from the usual grind. However after URF disappears we realise just how tragic the normal game modes are. Its crazy how much more fun myself and friends have on URF compared to solo queue or even draft. URF basically highlights all of the flaws from the main game. I think they should just make URF a staple game mode like ARAM you might lose players on solo/queue servers but you wouldnt necessarily lose those players altogether as they would stay to play URF.

  • Odyss K
    Odyss K

    "Controversial", if you will, opinion: Urf is fun at the beginning, when you try a bunch of fun champions and all. After 10-15 games it just becomes boring and annoying, for me at least. People abusing the same champions every damn game and tryharding like hell *cough* Yi *cough* Whenever urf is up I play for the first couple of days and then I just go back to regular league. I enjoy it a lot more. Maybe it's the state of the game rn, maybe I just like more slow paced games and having the game under my control, idk. That's just my view on urf.

  • NihilisticHorse

    I actually dislike it’d quite a lot. Its so goofy it’s boring.

    Iirc the original build for lucian was BT -> Triforce, not full crit. Triforce also didn't have CDR on it. I believe you generally went brutalizer(into youmuus)/cdr boots, took 10% total in runes/masteries, and left it at 30%
