As Season 4 comes to a close, we thought we’d take a look at the least played champions in LoL over the past month leading into the Season 5 preseason and see if there’s any hope of them rising to relevance in season 5 and beyond.
Being the least played champions in LoL doesn’t necessarily mean they’re awful or under-powered champs. After all, no matter how good all the champions are, there will always be ten least played ones, and as our previous list of 5 Clear Reasons LoL is Better than DotA, Continues to Rule MOBAs asserted, LoL’s champ strength is one of its stronger features.
In the case of these champs however, we can see a lot of nagging issues that are holding them back from popularity. Some have old kits that just don’t allow them to compete against newer champs or fit into the current flow of the game. Others just aren’t quite strong enough or fun enough to play.
To gather the data for this list, we used lolking.net’s statistics for the least played champions in ranked 5v5, solo queue, from October 22 through November 21, 2014. As a comparison to the upcoming statistics, the most played champs were played over one million times, more than ten times more often than the following least played ones.
So who are the least played champions in LoL to close out season 4? Read on to find out.
