5 Most OP Champions in League of Legends History
League of Legends has seen its fair share of broken champions throughout its time.
Such is the nature of a game with multiple checks and balances. Unfortunately there are certain times where certain champions are too broken. Here are five of the most overpowered champions to ever walk Summoner's Rift.
5. Pre-Nerf Evelynn
Evelynn was one of the most absurd characters before she got nerfed hard. She had a point and click stun and a 60-second stealth that would not break if she got close to you.
4. Pre-Hotfix LeBlanc
LeBlanc had to have every single one of her abilities nerfed as well as her base stats due to being way too powerful and one-shotting anyone without much difficulty.
3. Release Jax
Jax used to have a dodge as his passive. With a build that focused on dodge chance, he could be nearly invincible to both champion auto-attacks and turret shots. This made Jax way too strong and Riot eventually decided that dodge chance was not healthy for the game.
2. Release Xin Zhao
Xin Zhao is widely considered the worst release failure of a champion in League of Legends. Every stat and ability was over-tuned, causing a terrible two weeks where Xin Zhao could literally win a team fight by himself.
1. Release Twisted Fate
Twisted Fate was the most egregious mistake Riot Games ever made. His current Ultimate used to be fully global and on his E with a 40 second cooldown. This might have been enough to make the list but to add onto it, his gold card stunned in an area of effect and both the other cards gave more utility than they provide today.
