New League of Legends champion Senna has insane range limit

League of Legends YouTuber Vandiril has shown off exactly what new champion Senna is capable of when pushed to the absolute limit.

Senna, “The Redeemer”, is the next addition to League of Legends’ roster of champions, a unique marksman designed to be played primarily in the support role.

To find out exactly what the champion might be capable of in the most extreme scenario, Vandiril tested just how powerful Senna could become, and discovered that the result could get quite ridiculous given the right circumstances.

Senna has a passive ability that allows her to increase her range, attack damage, and crit chance over the course of a game by absorbing “Mist” from attacking enemies or from wraiths that spawn from fallen opponents.

Riot GamesSenna is also set to be part of K/DA sequel music group True Damage.

When taken to its most extreme state, Vandiril shows just how powerful that scaling range can be. The passive apparently tops out at 2300 range – well beyond anything any other champion can accomplish.

At that range, Senna can manage things like attacking the dragon from the blue-side Red Buff, or attacking the baron from the brush next to the red-side Red Buff – although in the latter case, a champion is needed in the pit to prevent the Baron from resetting and healing away the damage. Senna can even take down inhibitors without technically leaving the jungle.

The video also shows off the power of building maximum life-steal on Senna, which enables her to regenerate massive amounts of health while dealing damage.

Obviously, the demonstration is designed to find the absolute limit of what is technically possible for Senna, but in actual games it is unlikely players will get anywhere close to such extremes. In order to hit the maximum, Vandiril had to secure well over 1000 kills to build enough stacks of Senna’s passive.

Senna is designed as a Support champion first and foremost, but Riot have stated that they’d also like her to be viable in the Bot Laner role, and it certainly seems she can be a potent damage threat with the right build.

If this version of Senna does prove too powerful, however, Riot also said that they would prioritize the Support role when it comes to balance adjustments.

After the departure of star LoL player Rekkles from the Fnatic bot lane, the black and orange LEC Gods have finally announced his replacement: Astralis’ Upset. 

The LEC has certainly seen a shake up this year. With Luka ‘Perkz’ Perković leaving to join Cloud9 across the pond, a spot on the G2 roster opened up.

This was quickly filled by Martin ‘Rekkles’ Larssen, the former face of Fnatic, the team’s fans were wondering who would be his replacement. It’s big shoes to fill considering the legacy that Rekkles has left in the Fnatic jersey, so who has chosen to step up to the plate?

With LEC fans debating between Elias ‘Upset’ Lipp and Juš ‘Crownshot’ Marušič the race was on to see who Fnatic would sign.

Fnatic sign Astralis ADC Upset

When Crownshot announced that he would not be playing in any League of Legends tournament this year, fans were pretty certain that Upset would be the future ADC for the black and orange legends.

Therefore, when Fnatic announced Upset as ADC earlier today fans may not have been shocked, but they’re certainly excited to know who hold the future of the Fnatic botlane.

Upset has been a constantly high performing player ever since his days with Schalke 04. Taking what many believed to be a step up when he joined Origen (now Astralis) last season, Origen’s disappointing performance in the second split meant that roster readjustments were clearly needed.

With the ADC position being the least of Origen’s worries, it was pretty clear that Upset would be looking for a more competitive team to carve out his future with.

Will he be able to challenge the dynasty that Rekkles has left in his wake, or will he forever be caught in the Swedish legend’s shadow? Only time will tell, but we know Upset’s going to work extra hard to make his name sit side by side with the former Fnatic bot laner.
