The players are afraid of Samira? We won’t see the new character very often on Summoner’s Rift.


Released on September 21, 2020, the Desert Rose has a large group of its supporters and opponents. Some try to play it in each match, others, however, are happy to ban the character. How is Samira doing now and how often is she picked and blocked?

Samira too OP?

The League of Legends community is once again showing that the new characters introduced by Riot Games are either not fully balanced or have toxic mechanics. Previously there was Yuumi who reached 70% Ban Rate in Europe. Now, after more than two weeks on the official servers and one nerf on the account (the day after the release), Samira repeats the “success” of its predecessor.

Above platinum, the newest champion is not often seen. According to statistics site lolalytics.com, the Noxus fighter wins an average of 51.33% of matches. Its popularity fluctuates around 15%, but it is banned in 73.71% of games (global results). What does it look like on individual servers?

If we look at the statistics, we can see that the Koreans are reluctant to play for Samira. Right behind them are the Japanese and Australians (Oceania). Despite the fact that its WR is not very high, in good hands the character is able to block and deal huge damage, which can affect players’ dislike of her. Perhaps in the next update, the developer will decide to weaken the new heroine.
