Broxah Claims 'The Jungle Role Is Easier To Play Than It Was 2-3 Years Ago'
Mads "Broxah" Brock-Pedersen is widely considered to be one of the best junglers in the business, having enjoyed spells at some of the best teams in the LEC and LCS, even earning himself a silver medal on the world stage.
The Danish League of Legends star recently changed allegiances to Counter Logic Gaming, having seen out his one-year contract at Team Liquid that ended with a disappointing run at the World Championships. Having failed to make it out of the group stages just two years after being runner up, Broxah's new venture saw him attempt to pioneer a new-look CLG.
So far, CLG has yet to find much success, and Broxah has now admitted that the meta for his role is "stale".
Broxah discusses Jungle Meta in 2021
He said "I think the jungle role is a lot easier to play this year than it was 2-3 years ago. The meta is pretty stale."
"You don't get as rewarded for planning ganks or being creative in general as much as before, and we're just not seeing as much early action right now compared to what we used to before."
Broxah's comments come just a matter of weeks after former Fnatic teammate Gabriël "Bwipo" Rau swapped roles to become their Jungler. Filling the void left by Broxah, and the recently departed Oskar "Selfmade" Boderek, Bwipo has entered the position with Adam "Adam" Maanane stepping up from the European fringes.
Bwipo will be starting his first LEC game in the role this weekend, with Fnatic taking on Misfits, MAD Lions, and Rogue in their opening fixtures, with many fans wondering how easily he can fit in.
Broxah continued to say "I think it's comparatively pretty easy to jungle at a competitive level now. Obviously, there's still a difference between the worst junglers and the best junglers, but this meta is very different from the Scuttle Crab meta where you'd fight at level 2 with Xin Zhao and Lee Sin. It's just way slower, and I think that makes it easier to play the role.
As for Counter Logic Gaming, they will look to improve on their bad form against Golden Guardians in the LCK, with Broxah hoping he can rack up some important kills and rip the game wide open.
