The arrival of new champions to League of Legends is one of the moments in which the criticisms of the community are most accentuated. Whenever there is a new character, discussions occur about the supposed excessive power of him or the overloaded of the skill kit of him. However, there was a time when the launches were not so problematic for Riot Games. A time that visible view seems impossible, and in which some of the most broken characters in history were launched.
Lyra, the most broken premiere that almost nobody realized
Premiered as Champion number 101, Lyra is one of the most unbalanced premieres in the story of League of Legends. As the developers have revealed, the champion had a victory rate of 60% on its first day that motive the instantaneous launch of an emergency patch that almost nobody in the community managed to understand. However, the numbers with which the developer had placed the character at the height of a In Zhao that is still considered as the most powerful of all in his launch.
Riot August, one of the current developers of League of Legends explained how this was due to lack of data from which the players had by then: The people reacted by asking ourselves why 'Nerfeaban' to Lyra. No one thought that a champion who earned 60% of the games was as strong because she did not feel so oppressive or broken. Even if she was one of the strongest characters she had ever released in the game.
Since then, the decisions of Riot Games and the opinions of the League of Legends community have changed. Currently, we have all statistics on the performance of the champions from the moment they reach the game. However, the discussion is not given both in question of its performance in terms of victory rate and with respect to the overloaded of kits. Situation that, yes, with which the company does not seem to completely agree.
