Rek’Sai: a new jungler for Season 5
Riot revealed Rek’Sai, a new champion that you can expect to test this preseason. Rek’Sai is a female void champion best fit for jungling. She can move underground by burrowing. Because of this she has a very Starcraft Zerg-like playstyle attached to her. Rek’Sai is a hunter which obviously fits the main role that she was designed for. Two other hunters, Rengar and Kha’Zix, have been two of the most notorious junglers during Season 4. Will Rek’Sai be the queen of the Season 5 jungle? With Elise moving towards the shady background we do need a new queen.
The video below was released as a preview to Rek’sai. For me the video definitely sets the tone about what she will bring to the Summoners Rift.
Looking at the release of Rek’Sai after Braum, Gnarr, Azir and Kalista it feels like the game designers keep stretching the boundaries League of Legends. Much more is becoming a possibility within the world of League. The gameplay is enriched by all these new ideas brought to life which opens up room for the classic champions to be changed and claim a niche of their own once again. Do you share this opinion?
