- Hi, I'm Arczer, used to be King Zyrion until a few days ago when I name changed. I play syndra. A lot.
Sorry If I namedrop in this thread, and I also apologize if it comes off as boasting or bragging, but I obviously need a way to prove my point, so I apologize in advance.
Some of you might of seen me in the featured games or in some of Stonewall's videos or blog posts, but for those of you that don't know me, which is probably the majority of you, I play normal games. A lot of normal games, and occasionally team ranked 5s.
I've been playing a lot of Syndra for the past two months or so, and I think she is incredibly good, and undeserving of the upcoming buffs to her.
1. She has very strong laning phase
2. Has incredibly good wave control
3. Very high single target damage and reliable CC for ganks (a 1.5s Stun and a Slow)
4. Massive AOE stun
5. Probably the highest level 6 burst in the game from QE WQ R
6. Contrary to popular belief, doesn't exactly have a very high skillcap
7. Only has 2 to 3 counterpicks in lane
8. If she gets ahead, she can kill you from 100% repeatedly off of one stun
As I make this thread, Currently I'm 24 wins and 4 losses with Syndra, thats an 86% win ratio; and the KDA is nothing to scoff at.
Before you say "Its just normal games", consider this. I often sit in queue for normal games for around 10 minutes on average, and longer queues at night time or in the morning can get as high as 40, even 50 minutes. This is because my "hidden elo" for normals is actually quite high. I often play against some of the best players in NA. Riot also takes normal games as seriously as ranked games in terms of 'stomping', etc.
^My queue time for a normal game
Syndra is probably one of the best champions in mid lane right now, pre-buff. A buff would make her instantly first pick or first ban as a mid laner. Even Chaox was surprised at my damage when I played against him; I lost the game, but only because our jungler had disconnected at the start of the game making it a 5vs4 and I didn't have lane pressure.
You can watch Chaox vs my Syndra here:
What happens if Syndra gets one kill in lane:
Just one recent screenshot, only to prove my point.
You don't have to believe me either, you can check out other Syndra players who are spamming her. Epic Deer, Phantoml0rd, EHomda, etc.
Anyways, in short;
Syndra is incredibly good already in high Elo. I have proof; she doesn't need the upcoming buffs.
Also copy pasted this from notepad, dunno why it gives me [List] and I can't find where to turn it off, but, whatever.
