League of Legends: Who to Ban in Legend of the Poro King?
Legend of the Poro King is a special League of Legends game mode that uses the Howling Abyss map, which features a single lane. Therefore, the strategy is quite different than the other game modes. Banning of champions becomes specially important when the map has only a single narrow lane. The following are the champions that I always ban in this game mode.
Master Yi - Having Master Yi on a team is like having extra players on a team. That's because his Meditate ability generates health. In this game mode, where your champion can't go back to base to regen health, means the team with Master Yi has a champion with nine lives. This is a guarantee ban for me.
Illaoi - This champion excels at trapping the entire team in a small region for team fights. So in the narrow Howling Abyss lane, it's just too efficient. Not to mention that she has healing ability.
Blitzcrank - In a good player's hand, Blitzcrank can easily Rocket Grab enemy champions for its team mates to pounce on. It's not so bad in Summoner's Rift, because there are plenty of space and three lanes. But it is just too OP in the narrow lane of Howling Abyss.
Katarina - This champion focuses on assassinating multiple champions that are grouped together in a small space. That pretty much describes Legend of the Poro King.
Lux - One of the favorite picks on Howling Abyss. She has so many abilities that works well in the narrow lane. All her abilities apply to a huge area, relative to the lane, stunning and trapping enemies. And her ultimate is useful for killing any low-health champions traveling down the lane.
Veigar - This champion's Event Horizon ability creates a circle that is practically as big as the lane. It limits the movement of your team, which is already quite restricted in the narrow lane.
That's six champions. If both teams reads this post, then that's the six champions that should be banned in any Legend of the Poro King game.
