Aphelios changed my mind about the necessity of new champions in modern day League
s of Senna's release there are 146 champions in the game. Before Aphelios kit was released I was of the opinion that we already reached the point where releasing new champions is close to pointless because they'd just do variations of previously released champions.
But Aphelios is a paradigm shift. This champ just opened up so many possibilities when it comes to new releases.
I understand that he's probably going to have a 30% winrate in soloq, will dominate pro play, get nerfed into oblivion and will be forgotten by February but my point still stands.
