Akshan Is The Worst Champion In League of Legends - According To Win Rates

When a new champion enters Summoners Rift, the expectations are sky-high, as time after time, the new arrival comes in with a blistering prowess that has even the Baron quivering in its shell.

Not Akshan, though.

The mid-lane marksman dashed into the meta, all grapples blazing, but since has swung himself into the Draco's mouth, only to chewed up and spat back into the swamp.

Coming in as one of the Sentinels of Light after being resurrected by Shadya, the expectancy was for Akshan to be a fan favourite. However, statistics suggest he'll quickly lose his fans, having become one of the worst champions in the League of Legends pool.

Akshan's Terrible Win Rate Strikes Fear Into Riot Games

With a new toy, the League of Legends playerbase has been going crazy to try him out, with Akshan becoming one of the most picked champions since his release.

However, players have clearly been confused on how he fits into the meta, having played him in a variety of roles. The top, middle, and bottom lanes have been victims of the treacherous Akshan performances, with the highest point of Summoners Rift being where he's at his worst.

As of writing, the new champion sits bottom of the pile in terms of overall win rate - by quite a margin.

Out of 156 champions, Akshan has the worst win rate at a mere 38.70% as of writing. This comes as a whopping 6% less than any other champion.

Riot Sneak In Secret Akshan Buff

With the champion suffering in all roles, Riot Games rolled out a cheeky hot fix, in a bid to give him slightly more power. 

Lead Game Designer Jeevun Sidhu revealed that a buff went live to give Akshan "a little help".

Despite this, his stats haven't been on the climb too much.

It's likely that Riot Games will be keeping a close eye on Akshan, chipping in buffs until the pendulum swings over the other side, and he becomes slightly too overpowered - welcome to the natural arc of an undervalued character.

The champion will soon have his day, although players will soon be hoping his grapple can pull that day closer, rather than suffer for longer.
