In League of Legends, things are continuously changing, which isn’t a bad thing. You have some champions being picked more than others, while other champions are consistent throughout and are never picked. When a champion is never picked, this is a sign that Riot should consider reworking the champion.
What is the least played champion in League of Legends?
We set some time to the side and did the research for our readers to put together a list of the least played champions in League of Legends.
The champions on this list might not fit in with the meta today, or they might not be strong enough. For our future readers – take note of the date this list was published. This list is being published in 2020, so it may not reflect the newer Champions released in the future. In this list, you will find the League of Legends champion pick-rate for the most unpopular champions.
Taliya is one of the least played champs in League of Legends in the middle lane. According to our research, this LoL champion is found in about 0.31% of games, and at this time, her win-rate is very low. At the time of writing this, Taliyah has a win rate of an average of 44.82% – this is lower than most of the other champions. Taliyah was hit hard by nerfs, but I believe that she’ll receive love in due time and will be a good pick again.
Annie – Support, has a low pick rate of 0.31% – she’s the champion with the lowest pick-rate, actually. To us, this is a shock because we recall a point in time when Annie was continuously picked, and she dominated the bottom lane. We feel that the biggest issue with Annie is the fact that she wasn’t designed to be a Support Champion, but they did it anyway. Annie doesn’t offer much for her ADC, except for a single stun and high burst damage. She doesn’t work great in a meta where the carry needs more peel in the form of health and shields. The League of Legends champion pick rate for Annie is the lowest, which is really harsh to see.
To our surprise, Heimerdinger is another Champion that has earned a spot on this list, unfortunately. Typically, Heimerdinger can be found on the middle lane, top lane, or on bot lane. He has a low pick rate through all three of those rolls, though. Heimerdinger can be found in around 0.24 to 0.34% of the games – his highest win rate is in the middle lane.
This is another champion in League of Legends that is the least played. In the Top lane, this champion is picked in around 0.38% of the games and is steadily declining over the past couple of patches. His win-rate is also pretty low, with a 45.7% win-rate. He has been through a couple of reworks already, so what he needs now to make him a popular choice again would be a couple of buffs.
Rumble in Top Lane is steadily declining, which is very unfortunate. He’s picked in around 0.51% of games. His win rate is 47.2%, which is typical for most Champions. Perhaps a rework could make him more popular.
