League of Legends: quarantine for Fnatic, Coronavirus positive staff

League of Legends

Fnatic quarantined League of Legends LEC squad after a player and coach tested positive for Covid-19. It would be the support Hylissang and the second coach Tolki. The team is currently quarantined in Berlin, home of the team for the League European Championship.

Fnatic stated “Last week, two members of the Fnatic facility in Berlin tested positive for COVID-19. They have since remained in quarantine and show only mild symptoms. in line with Fnatic's internal policies, we asked all those exposed to positive cases to be tested again and to work remotely. We aim to return to the Berlin facility as soon as possible. We are confident that all our members will recover soon and will be ready for a fantastic run to the playoffs. "

Fnatic ended the LEC Spring 2021 season in fifth place on Sunday. After the last match (lost, as super playday precedents), founder Sam Mathews had hinted that "there are some things, which have remained private, that we have chosen to keep confidential but that have disrupted our normal routine", so he was probably referring to the two cases of positivity.

Riot Games recently announced that LEC teams will play live for the spring playoffs: it is not clear if or how this latest development will change the plans for the rest of the championship.

Also , Riot seems to have to face another problem: the separation with Alienware due to the allegations of harassment against the CEO of the Californian giant.

League of Legends Patch 11.6 Top Lane Tier List

The top lane tier list for League of Legends Patch 11.6 is here. While many factors, ranging from farming to teamwork, play a role in the efficiency of a champion, we have chosen the ones we believe make a great impact even if they are playing against their counters. Bear in mind, this list is not absolute, and with that disclaimer out of the way let's get into it.

  • Cho'Gath
  • Urgot
  • Riven
  • Darius
  • Garen
  • Fiora
  • Camille
  • Ornn
  • Gnar
  • In no particular order, these top laners usually tend to perform well even against their counters. They have enough crowd control in their kits to assist in team fights, while also being able to deal enough damage to get a kill and turn the fight in their favor.

  • Shen
  • Sett
  • Malphite
  • Poppy
  • Wukong
  • Nocturne
  • Jax
  • Sion
  • Aatrox
  • Tryndamere
  • Singed
  • These champions may seem like they are all over the place, but they can be separated into a couple of categories. You have tanks like Poppy, Malphite, Jax (and more) who are a pain in the late game if you are in the enemy team. Seriously, it takes a lot to kill these, which makes them great initiators. Nocturne and Wukong can be played almost like assassins that become the nightmare of enemy squishy champions.

  • Nasus
  • Quinn
  • Irelia
  • Viego
  • Kayle
  • Akali
  • Sylas
  • Kennen
  • Yorick
  • A common trait among these champions is that they have to snowball in order to be efficient. Nasus has to get his stacks, Irelia has to get her items fast, these are all champions that fare better in the late game than in the early phases of the match.

  • Jayce
  • Renketon
  • Rumble
  • Dr. Mundo
  • Zac
  • Gangplank
  • With the upcoming nerfs to Renekton, he has a spot in this tier as do the others. Unlike higher tiers, it is more difficult for these champions to play around their counters (albeit not impossible) and they all have limited mobility. Ganks from mobile junglers can affect them in the early phases of a match, so taking this into consideration, they ended up in this tier.


    These champions can poke early game, which is different than most other champions in this entire list who tend to have an awkward laning phase but compensate later on when their core items are built. And while Tahm Kench can hit from a distance, and Ryze can deal quite a lot of damage, it is not enough to be a vanguard during team fights. Warwick has a playstyle that favors him focusing on one champion; not five.
