LoR Meta Snapshot #19

Welcome to TLG’s newest meta snapshot for Legends of Runeterra, a series in which we give you our insight on the best decks in the higher ranks of the ladder.

Every Sunday, we discuss the decks that are part of the week’s meta and rate them on a scale of 1 to 5 stars. We also look at the evolution of said decks’ ratings across weeks and draw conclusions regarding the current state of the game, all of this so you can delve into your own ranked journey with a head start.

The difference between EU and NA in terms of deck-building became very clear this week. To put it metaphorically, in a martial arts tournament, the EU players would be the boxers who double down on honing their technique, while the NA ones prefer to find an alternative technique or style that can swing the fight in their favour.

In NA, there’s more experimentation like including Jack, The Winner in the good old Swain-TF, adding Blinding Assault to Lux-ASol and the creation of entirely new decks such as Trundle-Lee. At the same time, the NA meta feels extremely close, to the point where we omitted Tier 3. While you can find decks like Endure, MF Scouts and Ashe-Sejuani in the EU section, we excluded them from the NA section of the report because they aren’t seeing enough play in the region.
