An insane viral clip from League of Legends shows just how broken new champion Zeri truly is.
Since its release in 2009, League of Legends has grown and evolved into a very different game than it once was. Now, in 2022, there are over 157 champions for players to choose from, all of which have their own quirks and quirks.
There’s no sign of the developers slowing down with releases, with more champions no doubt on the way. However, as the game has evolved, so has the skill ceiling and mechanics you need to learn to play effectively against new champions.
The latest release, Zeri, is no different, as seen in a viral clip of one professional outdoing the rest.
In a tweet on January 23, Team Liquid Academy’s ADC Sean ‘Yeon’ Sung showed off his insane skills with new champion Zeri. In the clip, you can see the pro using her abilities which grant her extra movement speed.
Throughout the viral highlight – which has amassed 17,000 likes on Twitter at the time of writing – the player has continued to taunt his enemies before quickly taking them out with impressive mechanics.
However, it should be noted that the build they were using wasn’t exactly optimal for dealing damage to others.

A reply to the tweet compared the new champion to an annoying mosquito: “This champion is like a mosquito, he’s extremely annoying and hard to catch.” said one LoL fan. “But, it does negligible damage and dies in one hit.”
Others mocked the champion’s low damage: “OThe only thing I see is this champion dealing negative damage,” Doxylol said.
the only thing i see is that this champion does negative damage

Despite being a newly released champion, Zeri boasts a 42.38% win rate for patch 12.2. With such a low win rate, we should more than likely expect Riot to buff her, making her even more absurd in patch 12.3.
