League of Legends’ latest new champion might be one of the most adorable characters in the game, but she’s not proving particularly effective. Yuumi arrived today with the arrival of patch 9.10, but hasn’t proven to be particularly effective.
In fact, I should probably adjust your expectations downwards from there. Earlier today, League of Legends tracking application Lolalytics stated that across more than 13,000 ranked games in Platinum and above, Yuumi had a winrate of 29.71%. That’s since risen to a little over 30%, but still means that the Magical Cat is rocking the lowest winrate for a new or reworked champion on the day of their release in nearly seven years.
For the record, the most successful champions in the game right now are operating at a winrate of about 55%. The next lowest-performing champions (either Ryze or Akali, depending on who you ask) have winrates of about 43%, which far outstrips what Yuumi’s managed to achieve. The ideal, of course, is a roughly 50/50 win to loss ratio.
