A little musing from the mun - Would love your thoughts and maybe feedback here! <: )
I love Azir, I love his theme, his lore, his design, most everything about him (save for the lack of consistency in places…)
What I don’t love though, is his current state in game. Now I will happily admit I am not the greatest player ever, I make crap ton’s of mistakes and some champs are just not easy for me to pick up.
But i’ve been trying to play him like crazy lately so I could learn this rather difficult champion.
And what have I learnt in that time? That he isn’t that good, at least, not in my opinion. He can zone people sure, but, trying to actually kill anyone in lane is rather difficult, his abilities are good for whittling your opponent down but never finishing them off.
Late game his damage is good, but early to mid it’s just, too hard to actually have a chance at even reaching his late game potential. His early attack speed is so slow, so so VERY slow, it makes trying to last hit a nightmare let alone actually harass your enemy.
I’m not alone in this belief, I’ve a friend who I play with very regularly in my 5-man ranked team (our team name = “Nicolas cage”, because why not.) who is in master 1, so it’s safe to say he’s a damn good player.
What was his verdict of Azir? Same as mine, that Azir just isn’t that good, and has issues that need solving.
Not to mention all the actual Pro’s that have played him and also thought that he kinda sucked.
So eh, love the character, hate the champ, xD
Edit: there’s a lot more to Azir that I could ramble about, but, I don’t want this post to be THAT long.
