One top laner is finally challenging K’Sante in LoL pro play after mass Season 14 changes

League of Legends’ season 14 makeover has shaken the game to its roots, but the pros are finally beginning to settle on a subset of go-to champs. To no surprise, K’Sante reigns supreme again in the top lane—but a challenger has arisen for the crown.

The reworked version of Udyr has emerged from the darkness early this year and only just trails K’Sante for pick rate across the four major League regions. So far, it was recorded 47 picks this season, according to pro play stats page Games of Legends. Given Udyr went entirely uncontested across season 13’s major regions, it’s a remarkable resurgence for the Spirit Walker—but interestingly, the champ received no adjustments recently.
