The highlight of the latest patch for League of Legends is Bel’Veth arriving. Bel’Veth is a Void jungler who specializes in high ATK speeds. For her ultimate attack, Bel’Veth transforms into her ‘True Form’. While she’s in her True Form, Bel’Veth’s max HP and speed are increased. Moreover, her ultimate lets her move through walls with her Void Surge ability.

Out with Ashe ADC and in with Ashe Support

More and more players are starting to use Ashe as a Support and no longer as ADC. With the previous durability update buffing marksmen in LoL, it’s no surprise that players no longer see Ashe as an ADC.

In League of Legends Patch 12.11, Ashe saw a pick rate of 7.5%, a significantly higher number than her pick rate of 1.5% in patch 12.9. If we can recall correctly, Ashe received a buff last time, significantly reducing her ultimate skill’s cooldown time.

Now, Ashe sees a 30-second cooldown for ultimate. If teams utilize her as a support champion properly, they’ll be able to launch her ultimate two times in just a minute. And compared to a 43% play rate as a support champion, Ashe is getting picked more in Platinum ranks and above with a 55% play rate.

We’re definitely looking forward to seeing more of Ashe in future matches.
