If you’ve played League of Legends for long enough, you’ve probably heard the first rule that all summoners must follow as they load into a game: Never chase Singed. The Mad Chemist has always been a niche pick for top laners with a penchant for running around and taking creep waves behind enemy lines. But over the past five patches, he has become one of the best picks in the mid lane.
Between Patches 12.19 and 12.22, Runeterra’s resident poison expert held the highest win rate of any champion in the game, according to League stats aggregate U.GG. In League’s most recent Patch 12.23, Singed currently has the second-highest win rate at a whopping 55 percent, just behind the equally-as-unorthodox Zac mid pick.
