LoR Meta Snapshot #20

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.

This week, we split the snapshot into Tiers 1-3 instead of separating the regions, because the meta in NA and EU is similar. Zed-Lee is dominating the ladder after the buffs to Bastion. Since the next expansion is dropping in 10 days with Patch 1.12, the nerfs to Bastion may not be necessary. For now, there is no doubt that the card is overtuned, causing the entire meta to be orbiting around Zed-Lee.

We had the same situation a few weeks back with ASol-Trundle. The meta keeps changing every other patch, but it seems that the deck diversity isn’t what it used to be back in the Rising Tides expansion. However, we’re optimistic that with the new expansion, an ecosystem where multiple deck archetypes can thrive will re-emerge.
