The outrage among Yuumi’s mains is palpable, as evidenced by their subreddit. The balance team’s decision to nerf Yuumi in Patch 13.1b has not gone over well with 90% of the League of Legends community.
In response, the Yuumi mains subreddit has launched a protest, purposely tanking games to lower Yuumi’s win rate as much as possible. They have even outperformed the Ryze mains subreddit in this effort.
Yuumi’s win rate has plummeted to a disastrous 39%, making her the weakest champion in the game. This is a far cry from the last time a champion’s win rate was this low, when Akshan was first released and was hovering around 34%.
Despite the protest from Yuumi mains, it’s unlikely that Riot Games will take any notice.
The company is planning a rework for Yuumi that will make her less impactful in high-level play while still accessible for new players. Until that rework is released, Yuumi mains will have to endure the difficulties of playing a weak champion.
