T1 Zeus: from shadows to Worlds Finals MVP

When it came to League of Legends, T1's journey in 2023 was full of ups and downs. But Choi "Zeus" woo-je, the team's top laner, never gave up. A lot of bad things happened this year. The worst was when T1 midlaner Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok hurt his wrist during the...

The only support champion in League of Legends that can pull a single target into melee range is Blitzcrank. In patch 12.19, he is about to widen his reach.

Riot Games updated 16 champions and gave our dependable robot a minor makeover. The game designers are finally switching things up and allowing him to be more adaptable in other lanes rather than enslaving him to the support role.

Fun fact: Blitzcrank was originally intended to be a champion fighter!

They took this route while maintaining his primary support playstyle, as stated in the patch notes.

Riot enhanced all of his scalings and boosted his attack speed, which might give him a better chance in the jungle, top lane, the AD carry position in bot lane with an enchanter or a fasting Senna, or even mid lane.

Base stats

  • Base Attack Speed increased from 0.625 to 0.65
  • Attack Speed Ratio increased from 0.625 to 0.7

W – Overdrive

  • Mana Cost increased from 75 to 85
  • Bonus Attack Speed increased from 30/38/46/54/62% to 40/53/66/79/92%
  • (New) Magical Punch: Attacks during W deal an additional 1% of the target’s maximum HP in magic damage. Against non-champions, this damage is increased by an extra 60-180 (based on level) damage.

E – Power Fist

  • Mana Cost increased from 25 to 40
  • Knock Up Duration increased from 0.9 seconds to 1 second
  • Empowered Auto Attack Damage increased from 200% total AD to 200% total AD (+ 25% AP)
  • (New) No One is Safe: Against non-champions — Blitzcrank’s E empowered auto attacks will deal a bonus 150% total AD (+125% AP) damage

R – Static Field

  • Maximum Stacks from Passive increased from 3 to unlimited
  • Magic Damage from Stacks On-Hit increased from 50/100/150 (+30% AP) to 50/100/150 (+30/40/50% AP)

Riot improved his base attack speed, attack speed ratio, and additional attack speed from Overdrive in addition to his base attack speed (W). It provides a staggering 92% bonus at max rank, which is 30% greater than in prior updates.

On top of that, Riot added a new scaling bonus that delivers percentage damage based on the target’s maximum HP to give him more currency in the post-Durability Update meta. The damage is increased against non-champions, which aids in eliminating neutral creeps or minions from the lane. It simply costs an additional 10 mana to get all of this.

Building Guinsoo’s Rageblade on Blitzcrank is justified considering the extra AP scaling damage added to Power Fist (E) and Static Field (R).

“I love what Riot’s doing. I love when they do this,” League of Legends analyst and content creator Nick “LS” De Cesare said in his patch rundown. “This I would essentially classify as a rework — an alternate lane rework — because he’s going to get access to a playstyle and items that he never had before.”
