With the 2020 League of Legends World Championship approaching its conclusion on Oct. 31, two champions have come out on top.
Leona and Ezreal have dominated at Worlds 2020, bearing down on their opposition in the bot lane and bragging a 60 percent win rate or greater.
Leona, the top-performing champion in the tournament, has won 16 out of her 21 games played—an impressive 76 percent win rate—while Ezreal has won 12 and lost just seven games with a 63 percent win rate.
In this past weekend’s semifinals between G2 Esports and Damwon Gaming, and Top Esports and Suning, Leona won all six of her games.
Often matched alongside Ezreal, Leona’s ability to tank, engage, crowd-control, skirmish, and create early-game advantages makes her not only the best support in League but perhaps even the best champion.
Leona’s flat damage reduction allows her to engage without being punished, her CC gives her the level-one advantage and her ultimate, the lane priority.
Ezreal is generally a weak laner, choosing to sit back and farm for the late-game, but with Leona, he’s a completely different beast. Once Leona and Ezreal hit their level-six spike, Solar Flare and Trueshot Barrage come into full effect. The ultimates provide a quick burst of damage, often resulting in a kill or two.
When matched together, Ezreal is also safe to sit behind his tower and play passively, while Leona roams across the map.
It remains to be seen if Leona and Ezreal will play a part in next week’s grand finals between Suning and Damwon, but with Hu “SwordArT” Shuo-Chieh and Cho “BeryL” Geon-hee taking center stage, they will almost certainly be up for contention.
