When not writing about "League of Legend," Mark uses their free time to play video or computer games, television, or study.
There are a lot of bad champions in League of Legends and I am going to start off by saying that this is all my opinion and feel free to disagree with me. I am mostly making this out of pure entertainment and this is not meant be to taken seriously. Enjoy. These champions are listed in no particular order.
Disclaimer: This is completely based on my opinion of the worst champions in League of Legends. I firmly believe that any champion can be good if played correctly. These champions can all be good in the right setting with experience players playing them properly. However, I believe this champion have disadvantages that put the below other champions in the game.
Fiora is just a bad champ. She can get fed and lane verse many match ups fairly well, but she really doesn't bring much to the table late game. She can be a good assassin in many different situations but definitely seems like she needs work.
This champion just seems like he does not do a lot of good and just seems to never be played. He is just very hard to play and has a weird kit. He was very strong at one point in time when he had more turrets but since then he seems like he is pretty bad.
Karma is one of those champions that just screams "troll" if she is picked. If she is picked get ready for a dodge or a very unpleasant game. I do not think that most of her losses come from the actual skill of the champion, but more from the bad troll type players that play her when they want to throw games.
Teemo is one of those champions that is very hard to place on a team. He does not fit very well in most teams and can really fall off late game. Because he has a real lack of crowd control he is not very useful late-game making it relatively hard to win games. He used to be viable as an AP mid, but was nerfed.
He is definitely not the best champion right now and that is because he really does not bring an insane amount to the table. He is okay in lane but falls off in the later stages of the game.
After nerf, Talon is basically never played and I mean never played. The last time I saw a talon was probably a month ago. Does this mean he is bad? I am not sure. What I do know is that he is very very very situational and you have be really careful when you pick him.
He is not terrible if you can play him properly but he is rarely picked and hard to play extremely well. The thing is that he falls off late game and if he is not fed he is kind of useless.
Viktor seems like he is one of those champions that could be really good if you knew how to play him but the thing is that absolutely no one knows how to play him and hardly ever does for that matter. Does that make him bad? I don't know . . .
I think he is decent but he is only good when compared to a few different matchups. High skill cap and pretty vulnerable to ganks. He also has very poor scaling and if he is not extremely fed he does little to serve his teams in team fights.
Who Do You Think Is the Worst Champion???
This guide has gotten a lot of controversy as I knew it would but I would like to take an opportunity for you guys to speak up and tell me who you think the worse champion is. Leave a comment below!
???????? on September 02, 2020:
how in ur right mind are you gonna call teemo a bad champ
hes actually broken
bob on August 16, 2020:
How is Talon one of the worst characters in the game? he's one of the best mids, even after the nerfs
Drew Agravante from Philippines, Currently in Qatar on July 15, 2020:
Saw a lot of good users of these champions. In the end, it's all in the ability to use them. I'm a poor Diamond and I love and hate teemo.
yes man on June 11, 2020:
i would say the worst champion in league is Joe Mama
Lhangkamb on May 27, 2020:
I just want to say, That what the hell is wrong with you. ALL OF THEM ARE EITHER AVERAGE, SUPER ANNOYING TO PLAY AGAINST OR SUPER BUSTED. lets take fiora, a beast late game cuz if she gets a few kills early, its gg. Teamfights don't need to exist. She can 1v5. Can dodge cc, dishes out a ton of damage and has a lot of healing AND is tanky. Heimdinger and karma, well I don't know a lot about them, but what I do know is that they are not bad. Average at best.
Teemo. A counter pick to nearly everyone in the top lane and an annoying champ to play against, as well as dishes out a lot of damage in pokes and 1 v1 s as well as teamfights. Weakness: Oracle lenses. Gankplank is pretty hard, while talon can one shot all the enemy backliners in one ultimate and then just hop out. Sion dishes out a stupid amount of damage as welll as being extremely tanky. Viktor, well, he's a super late scaler. pretty good but slightly difficult. ANd xerath. He will poke you till you are 1 shot and then snipes you.
Xd on June 10, 2015:
Teemo and fiora are not bad champions this is fake its just ur opinyon
BUTTPLUGS on May 10, 2015:
you may want to remake this because its really outdated
Beeceetee on November 14, 2014:
This was written a long time ago so many things have changed don't get mad at the author he was probably on the right track when it got wtitten about two uears ago but again a lot has changed since then :")
xFa on November 12, 2014:
Those champions are awesome! Why would they be considered bad just because many can't use them properly?
You're a dumbass on September 18, 2014:
Pro players who are good enough to get paid to play the game play xerath, talon, and karma all the time.
loldood on September 18, 2014:
I don't get why you guys say these are bad champions....
Lightning189 on May 14, 2014:
With Fiora, it's best to use rune and mastery pages (well who doesn't with any champ?) I can easily get first blood with Fiora, and jax can not counter Fiora when I play her, he just flops a few games ago I was top against a Jax, he was 0/7/0 while I was 7/1/1 (the death was due to a turret and failing to realize I was on low health) She is by far the best AD carry in the game in my opinion, Even if the team CC's a lot against you, the mass amount of AD and Armor pen (if you have any that is) can get you Penta kills for days, even in early/mid game 1 v 5 situations, Fiora is an easy champ to play, if the parry had a 1 second stun, that would be okay since, well you've just had your weapon bounced back at you, wouldn't you be a bit staggered for a moment? In late game you can carry the team to victory, but it's best not to go in 1 v 5 when everyone is lv 18. I main Fiora mostly in top and hardly anyone can stop my warpath with Fiora.
bob on May 04, 2014:
I can’t believe Fiora is in the list because she is one of the easiest champions to get a penta kill with and when I play with Fiora I at least get 12kills and in late game she can kill champions in just one hit
D3m0n on April 05, 2014:
i don't know if this is an other season but teemo, gangplank, karma, xerath, talon & fiora are rly f*ckin good
lol on March 18, 2014:
teemo is not a bad champion!!!
harpula on February 24, 2014:
hmm I'm a bit confused with your fiora could you explain a bit more, like what falls off late game. She's got her ult which is invulnerable can parry things and also brings immense damage. this is a question as i don't play her its just from what I've seen
Sarah Forester from Australia on February 24, 2014:
I miss the days that I started playing League of Legends when Heimerdinger was overpowered...
3 turrets, grenades that damaged towers... all that pushing power.
neil on February 22, 2014:
really? talon is not weak he is my best pick in ad because of his combo and chasing abilities
Mark Passarelli (author) from Lakewood Colorado on February 18, 2014:
Tryndamere is still one of the best split pushers but he can be countered. It really relies a lot of team play and coordination do pull it off successfully.
Kewl Guy 32 on February 18, 2014:
It was a great decision that you removed Tryndamere from the list. I know most of the masses think Tryn is a right-click win champion, but I'd have to disagree. He has a good sustain when laning, CC (both slow & AD reduction) so that the enemy doesn't get CS and that gap closer/escape tool. Come mid to late game, Tryndamere really shines if fed. He can help assassinate/soften the enemy team while providing a wide AoE CC. Also if he's behind, he can just split-push. This can either A) Breakthrough the enemy team's tower defense
B) Relieve pressure on allies that are defending base
Overall, I believe he is under-appreciated. But if played, right he can be more than a "right-click to win" champion.
Vince on February 12, 2014:
Karma Is Not BAD!!!
harpula on February 05, 2014:
And armor does not counter talon, let me explain. Any talon who play well will build Last Whisper and The Black Cleaver, along with a Ravenous Hydra or Bloodthirster depending on what you want. This allows him to deal a lot of burst damage through armor. Just something to keep in mind but its all in the player as they say. love the list btw funny
harpula on February 05, 2014:
yea this is only really for entertainment, because talon is a very strong champ atm. i agree with what you said but hes extremely easy to snowball.
avidist on January 06, 2014:
it's funny that people see this and think it's current and get all pissy : P
Mark Passarelli (author) from Lakewood Colorado on December 16, 2013:
These are just opinions no need to take offense.
surely on December 16, 2013:
cmon! learn to play!
I don't understand how u can label a champ "BAD"... one teemo can realize one of the more trolls backdoors.. one kharma can be a really pain in the ass in tf... its not a bad champ.. is a bad player.
Somedude on December 10, 2013:
You don't know the talon scalings man. For Example, for his ult, each hit has an AD scaling of 75%. As it can hit a person 2 times, its AD scaling is effectively 150%. That's pretty damn high.
lies on November 03, 2013:
There arent bad champions, just bad players...
Mark Passarelli (author) from Lakewood Colorado on October 29, 2013:
Mark Passarelli (author) from Lakewood Colorado on October 29, 2013:
Its just because he scales not so great and can be countered with armor. Still viable in certain situations.
Ryo on October 29, 2013:
lol I main Talon and trust me he is soooo OP; well when someone knows what there doing with him... I distroy mid lane with him. he is under played and underrated but not bad or underpowered. then again no champ is bad just people who are bad. if you can play a underrated do it...
fafsa on October 28, 2013:
well i don't know why there is so much hate on talon , i main talon and i can say pretty much without exagerating i almost never lose mid lane, like really all mid lane champs bow down to me :D
Mark Passarelli (author) from Lakewood Colorado on October 17, 2013:
Just updated it. I haven't had a lot of time to make changes but I hope you like the updated guide.
wtf!!!!! on October 17, 2013:
wtf!? Tryndamere and Sejuani are some of the best champions in the game right now.
Tryndamere is massively OP when used correctly in the top lane. Sejuani as a jungling is not just about her clearing speed. Abuse that CC and Ult for the win. If you want fast jungle clears, play Shyvana or another champion.
Xenos on September 16, 2013:
Trundle? I've not seen him played in a single game in like two months.
patka on September 05, 2013:
You can't play them and say that they r bad? HAHA
UnsungRhapsody from Houston, TX on September 04, 2013:
Wow guys. He even put up an opinion disclaimer, and you still get pissed. ;P I don't get it.
By the way, where is Pantheon? I've read through the article twice and haven't seen him.
DEMACIA on September 04, 2013:
Sej is not bad, the ulti is really good and she had a nice remake :p ..talon with a the full combo against a lux XD
xPau on August 31, 2013:
THERE'S NO SUCH WORST CHAMPIONS IF YOU CAN PLAY THEM WELL..AND OF course IT'S HARD TO PLAY WITH AGAINST CHAMPS :)
Pizda on August 28, 2013:
More like ''Top 10 least played champions'' ...
Kuta on May 18, 2013:
pa koja ti je pička materina
anon on May 02, 2013:
this quickly degraded into "2 bad champions and a bunch of others that are just hard to play"
Sam on April 27, 2013:
Disagree with nearly all of this list, cept maybe Heimerdinger, old Karma and Fiora to some extent.
Fiora gets hard countered by a good bruser, but if fed Fiora can carry quite hard.
Heimerdinger, yes but not because he is hard to play, hes easy... just not that strong. Kill his turrets in lane and hes useless - waste his mana and free gold for you.
Karma - there are better supports and better utility mages.
I play with some very good Sejuani's, she can go mid top or jungle and acutally counter a lot of champs in lane and is amazing in team fights... i mean... that ult!!
I personally play Xerath and Viktor - both are quite hard to play but very rewarding (Viktor easier, Xerath more rewarding). Positioning is everything with these champs. But both have good CC, range and burst...
Oh and finally Trynda? Really? dafuq? hes majorly OP... but countered hard by 1 very common summoner spell... ignite!
As for who should be on this list: Mundo? Malzahar (his ult effectively suppresses himself... go figure)? Teemo (maybe this is one personal, i just hate the champ)? and finally Soraka - just aweful.
lol on April 03, 2013:
pant trynd talon nasus they are sooooooo op
KingLexander on March 18, 2013:
ARE YOU JOKING!!!! Why is pantheon and talon on this list!! They are easily the best assassins in the game!
n00bBoy on February 26, 2013:
I don't agree with your victor is one of the worst champion, victor can carry game well if you knows how to use it. I did.
Jraine on February 12, 2013:
Are you people even reading the stuff that goes with it? Half the champions he isn't even calling weak so stop moaning about how he is!
Cerbearus on February 07, 2013:
Sejuani right now imo is the strongest jungler in the game. Since S3 started, health has been the best stat for tanks and Sej benefits greatly from it. Also machete gives her one of the best clear times in the game, right around Shyvana. I absolutely smash with her and often carry and tank for my team. Talon + new black cleaver is lol op.
Anonymous on February 06, 2013:
Seriously Talon is a complete wrecker for enemy teams. He is an Assassin and people can't build him right. So if you're playing him like an assassin build him like one. That's my thoughts on Talon
Crummy Joker on January 23, 2013:
I agree with Heimerdinger, Fiora, Senjuani (other than cc) and Tryndamere, but really, Panth, Karma and Xerath bad??? WTF dude. There is no such thing as "worst" or "the best" champ (unless you look at statistics, but don't do that), there are just good players and, frankly, bad players.
Adamlmao on January 20, 2013:
I disagree with a couple of things but most importantly playing a high skill cap champ a bad reason to call a champion one of the "worst" for example Xerath.. did you ever see a good xerath, they mastered his range you buy a ward so you have a "safer" side of the river, and with his range he can hit people that are that can't see him because the fog of war
Tigaras on January 07, 2013:
I'm disappointed about how Karma is labeled as one of the "worst" champions in league. It's the players and the items they buy. They have no conception of how to play her correctly. People often see her as the "you need to buy defense for her, and support items" gal. If you ever play her as the mid-lane AP champion. You would disagree. The amount of AP she gets allows her to put on a massive shield, with massive AoE damage, and her Q allows her to heal everyone/herself in front of her while blowing massive damage to the enemy team. Her little speed up/slow down spell is a little off, but it at least helps an ally get out fast or to slow down that enemy champion so you can eliminate their health for your team to finish. This is what I think about Karma, and she is goddamn amazing mid-lane if you play her correctly.
GameApathy on January 06, 2013:
Heh, Pantheon and Talon are far from being the worst after the new Black Cleaver came out.
Vador218 on December 28, 2012:
Listen Viktor is not weak, just because a champion is hard to use and you can't dominate the first game doesn't mean that they suck. Viktor need to be taken off this list. He has insane dps, crowd control, and a shield! His ult will flat out murder you and he is a good pick in some scenarios. He is not like brand where you can do anything, BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN HE'S BAD. You should take him off this list. If you can't edit it, then here's to all the people looking here. Viktor is not bad compared to other champions, it doesn't make him bad if you know how to play him. And people know how to play him just look at this http://www.solomid.net/guides.php?g=17919-pastouli...

I wouldn't say massive traffic lol.
