    Today, let's talk about a league of legends champion that has a very interesting history, Aatrox. He is really the only champion that was ever removed or deleted from league of legends. Even though he was broken and an op champion for season 10 to climb ranked, that doesn't mean he deserves the treatment to be removed. I love the aatrox rework and I think aatrox is one of the best top laners to climb with in season 10, but not everyone feels that way in league of legends...

@potterinhe11 What can you do. These meta changes and champ reworks only ever serves the need of the pro field, not the need of general players. Even if just one player making the champ look too OP, it could cause nerfs or rework. (Such as Faker causing season 5 version of Ryze getting reworked because of his insane perma snare combo)

Aatrox released a few days after I started playing League. He was the first champion I ever bought for my account. For years I played him, from season 3 to season 7 he was most most played champion and I maintained a 60% winrate on him. When Riot "reworked" him, it felt like an old friend had died. Rest in peace, buddy. I still miss you terribly.

@Howepellin Still not as bad as what they did to Poppy. The only problem was her ult, and instead of nerfing it, or fixing it, or balancing it in any way, they removed her from the fucking free week, shunned her, and eventually removed her and replaced her with an abomination and mockery of her true self. All because of the ult. Then they started giving different variations of her ult (That they could have easily used for her) to other champions, like Xin Zhao and Mordekaiser. Fucking bullshit. They basically admitted that they removed her from the game for no reason. Simply put, nothing they say can be trusted. They have no morals, no code. They just do whatever the fuck they feel like, lol.

@Jurica Eršek Man gotta love the rose tinted glasses to say that old Aatrox was more interesting. Old Aatrox was a generic demon thing. A demon's whole shtick is to convince people into doing what the demon wants by any means. He was no exception. The voice lines sounded cool but that's it, they had no real substance. Meanwhile now you have a being that was a demi-god and has now been tainted/corrupted into a husk of their former selves. Forever trying to reclaim their previous glory by killing and taking flesh from their foes but never being able to get their wish. This tortures them and eventually all they desire is their own destruction but they know that's impossible, so instead they seek to destroy the world in hopes of destroying themselves along the way. Rhaast is not even remotely similar. Rhaast feels no sadness and is just an instrument of evil. Varus isn't similar either.

I literally started the game on Aatrox. The third week after his original release (his free-to-play week). This was, of course, back when new players had the same free champion pool as everyone else. As soon as I had the IP to, I bought him. I proceeded to play him almost exclusively because he was incredibly unique and had a playstyle I adored. I was overjoyed when they put out the mini-rework and made him an amazingly viable champion with almost his entire feel and playstyle intact (I did personally love the health-throttling aspects that got taken out). After they put out the full rework, I tried to keep playing Aatrox, but ended up stopping completely, and eventually stopped playing top lane almost entirely. I just don't have a fighter/bruiser with a playstyle that fits me anymore.

I find this video really interesting because I started playing league recently. Aatrox(rework) was one of the first champs that caught my eye and one of the first I picked up. I loved him and now he is one of my favorite champs in every aspect(lore, voice lines, model and splash, gameplay), but he's so removed from the people who he really belonged to.

I used to play Ryze before one of his many reworks. I think I felt similarly about the changes. While I understand why targeted spells are being removed in favor of skillshots, it wasn't the same champion anymore. I have a few skins for Ryze, but I don't play him anymore, and I have no plans to do so, either.

@Bubba ​ The golden age I refer to is the period after patch 7.5-6 till the season 8 where Aatrox became popular, it lasted about 5 month or more I think. I am not really sure how the Titanic buff happened as I stopped playing league before that and only came back in 2019 when I discovered Aatrox didn't existed anymore. After this, I stopped playing league and couldn't find another champ to otp so I have no idea about the current state of the game and the new items. Imao the E was fine, it provided not only a poke but an engage(and an escape, negligible but still). And allowed for an alternative poke/burst strat if maxed first(not my play style though). To me only the Q need a adjustment as written in my previous comment

@S0ul_Shad0w44 i would not call it golden age, as it only lasted a month. Also, he climbed from being the worst toplaner to being the absolute best toplaner in a single patch, due to changes toTitanic Hydra. (This is not a good sign for champions health) But yes, there was absolutely no reason for them to literally delete the champion. The Aatrox rework could also have been a completely new champion and no one would have complained. The old Aatrox had his problems tho, especially when i try to imagine him in the current meta with the new items. All he needed were small adjustments, and maybe a new E.

I started playing at season 3 and my favorite champ by far was Gragas. I loved everything about it. I was so mad when they've changed it. I remember the day Aatrox was released. I played it immediately. It was like love at first sight. I liked its appearance, skills etc. and he had the feature that I probably like most in league which is self-healing (the health costs for the skills were very annoying tho). I liked his w and r so much. But, as mentioned in the video, he was not that strong and pros were not playing it (but I was playing because the feeling of the champ was so satisfying for me especially the build with botrk and some life steal items.). Soon after the release he was forgotten. I stopped playing the game around the end of season 6 i guess and never seen that Aatrox has become "the dream Aatrox" and never heard of it. Then I started playing again a couple of mounths ago (and of course i had to relearn the game, this game changes so much wtf). When i saw the new Aatrox I was so mad again. They changed him so much. He isn't even an auto-attack based champ anymore, passive changed etc... Then I find this video and learned that my dream Aatrox has become real before the change and I couldn't play it and probably never will be able to play... This is sad.

Talking about Shaco here. Since I first bought him back in 2014 I've been a Shaco main. Ad Shaco, Ap Shaco, Hybrid Shaco, Tank Shaco, etc. and he had always such a fascinating tactical aspect to the game no other champion could provide. Since Season 5 I'm actively playing Shaco support (with some others, of course, because Riot.)with some success, which means i peaked at diamond 2 98 Lp. Then, about one and a half year ago he got a Mini-Rework (The one with new boxes on Ult-Death and aoe box dmg) and suddenly ap shaco support was the meta. They tried to nerf that (and succeeded) by letting his W last only 40 seconds instead of 60. So now you'd need a full cdr itembuild, to get at least 4 boxes out at once. Every aspect of my love to shaco was killed that day. I never thought that would happen since it even survived the nerfs after the Assassin Rework, but it did. Nowadays, with the new items from Season 11, there's a little bit of fun back in his kit. But not enough to main him anymore, or even one-trick him. I mean I still main him, but that's probably the reason I'm an unhappy Plat 4 now.

It's ok he is very angry due to Twilight aspect locking him away, but old one was unique, he just turn the tides of some wars while being a total gentleman with his quotes I feel his personality was similar to Jhin, but Aatro wasn't that crazy, he was amazing, his dark flight was WOW he literally crashed at the enemies. I was literally waiting for a pool party skin where he uses his wings as some big signs, as hinted in one splash art, but until today we got nothing, just garbage skins for him that literally are all the same, worst victorious I can't say I hate new Aatro, but I really miss the old one

I was an old Aatrox main, started playing him at his release and for years he was the only champion I would ever play. There was not a single champion that I was as good at or had the same level of knowledge for and there never will be. Through thick and thin, before his mini-rework even when he was regarded as a troll pick, I would play him. I had almost a 90% winrate on him and I would just play him into any matchup without having to worry about it. He's still my highest mastery champ but I don't really ever play him anymore because I don't care for the rework. I still play league but nowhere near as much or as seriously as I did when I still had my main. Ever since there has never been a champion that caught my eye to main and I still don't really have a main because nothing feels the same.

Here's my personal fan-theory: Aatrox himself wasn't erased; just his old host. You see, as a member of the Darkin race, Aatrox is forced to be little more than a living weapon, who can only act on his own by possessing the bodies of those who wield him. If my guess is correct, every time he possesses a new host, he mixes some of his martial prowess with the techniques of whoever he's in control of. If that's the case, what we're seeing isn't an erased champion, but one simply wielding a new body.

When the elemental dragons were first added to the game, I used to love jungling Aatrox and trying to get as many dragons as possible before elder spawned since he could do it at lvl 2 pretty easily. I got him to mastery 7 and this was before his changes that made him good. Since his rework I haven't played him and he sits in my mastery 7s as that champ that I've literally never played.

Hello Exil, First of all i really appreciate your work! your videos are great anad a pleasure to listen too! But dint you think that the Galio reowrk was by far more "removing a champion from the game" ? Not only was most of his kit changed to a point that you dont recocnise the old one at all (shielding allys, speeing them up, and beeing a caster that hast meele range as a downside - to beeing a meele champ that also can cast as an upside/ not helping his team expect for his ult) but they completly removed how he felt. He was a watcher and protector, now he is a boasting asshole who wants to punch others - while protecting as a side job. I really love league but i hate how they massacred the feel of this champ und tunred hin into a dump punching maschine..

He was the first champion that I picked up back in 2016. I love everything about him. I was a new player at the time and sees him as my everything. I will admit that he’s really bad and yes his kits are completely awful with the AP scaling, but at least that play style is what got me into League of Legends. After the mini rework everything was going great for him. Then all of a sudden, Rito be like let me introduce Riven 2.0 and now in 2021 he doesn’t even have his revive. He’s no longer an “AA”trox (auto attack), he’s a caster bruiser that die immediately if he jumps in first. Hashinshin also pointed out his health bar didn’t even move while they were showing off his life steal ability. I completely and strongly agree that he’s the one champion that Rito deleted from the game.

Even when the old W costed hp if you used it properly you could out heal the dmg both from enemies and your self ...you could 1 v 3/4 even 5 after his mini rework . I wasnt fan of him at start but he actually became decent to good ..maybe too boring for you for mostly AA but he was AAtrox ..if you played well your passive wouldnt have been only for selfrevive ..you wouldnt even need mostly mid game and late game at all unless 1 v all . Sure people complained about Guardian Angel passive but it served more then that . If they made a new champ or made him in to a new kayle type rework more less balance issues he could have been interesting . Either aa based or skill based champ . Honestly only thing i hated about the old one was his Jump...that he needed to go up first and then to the location ..he was open at that time . Kind of like now with his Q ...every time you want to attack with Q you are sitting in place .

@NMG 11 "...maybe he wouldn't be so god damn awful." Sir, how in the hell is he an awful champion? I need a legitimate analysis with accurate and reliable statistics, because I'm calling BULLSHIT. He's one of very few (New Morde, Darius, maybe Fiora/Riven/Irelia in certain matchups) who is able to snowball hard off being ganked, therefore difficult to shut down when he gets ahead early. The massacre he can bring to multiple lanes once he starts to leave his own is phenomenal, even with the big nerfs he's received (which were all quite needed and necessary seeing as to how extremely overpowered he became post-rework). He can split push, team fight, duel, skirmish on top of objectives, move in and out of fights with ease, what more do you want? Someone with a shitty movement ability that can be cancelled with a Thresh E and then he becomes useless? Oh, but he can revive!!... and then have the exact same thing happen to him because that CD wasn't pretty. All that Aatrox could do was sit top lane, 1v1 the enemy top laner, have 0 team fight presence, and basically be a lower-tier Tryndamere. Not to mention that's not why Riot reworks champions. They aren't trying to cater to the minuscule population that will generally be disappointed and outraged their favorite (shit) champion is being reworked to fit modern expectations and gameplay, they care about the competitive value of the champion, which a TON of people complained about.

I remember loving Aatrox and getting real good with him but he was a buggy mess. I played him regardless of the bugs, until discovered his ability [I believe Dark Flight, that had him jump up and dive a champion] was broken beyond playable. When using Dark Flight, you were considered as /in the air/ for a short period. So any time I used this ability, Yasou could ulti me. This not only canceled the ability but completely broke Aatrox as none of his abilities would work anymore and Yasou could free kill me. After finding this I tested it in a game with friends and sure enough, Yasou could completely break Aatrox if I used Dark Flight near him. I reported it and the most that happened after MONTHS was the abilities would no longer completely break, but Yasou could still ulti you if you used Dark Flight near him. It made playing Aatrox in any game with a Yasou impossible. This was during a time where Yasou was in every single game. I miss Aatrox, I loved playing him. I wish they hadn't deleted him and just did the bug fixes Aatrox desperately needed.

I remember my first time just getting into league. A friend of mine was gushing over champs I should try. Going on and on about people like garen, yasuo, gnar at the time. And all the while I simply pointed on the roster list and said "and who's this?" Her reply was "oh that's aatrox. He looks cool but hes actually really bad and not played at all" from that day forth I grinded the points needed to unlock aatrox for free and quickly proceeded to get my ass handed to me on a silver platter. I lost a lot. And I learned a lot. As the years went on I became an aatrox main. Every intricacy of his kit I learned to master. And people loved and hated me for what I was able to do with a garbage champion. He is to this day the highest champion with mastery on my account. If I ever come back to league I will make a new account as to not tarnish the record that aatrox holds on my original account. Old aatrox will forever be my favorite champion league ever made me. Sorry for the long read.

I have a similar story. I discovered Aatrox when I started in 2014. Played him once in a while until 2015 when I finally stuck with him. Except, unlike most, I played him in the jungle. And I played a LOT. I had over 700k mastery points, and then I played him mostly in top lane. Even though he was bad, I figured out how to make him work. I managed to get first blood so many times (like more than half the time) that my friends were no longer surprised at it happening so often. I ended up with 1.1mil mastery points when the rework happened. I met a lot of people who were really shocked, because it's not easy getting that many points on a champion many people never play. And then everything changed and I just could not play him anymore. It was actually pretty sad because I remember seeing people trying to build blade of the ruined king and other attack speed items on a caster champion. Riot literally removed Aatrox.

I really liked the old aatrox and back then an ap aatrox to just dive in and burst all the squishy with the ultimate was actually not that bad of a build. I used to play some ap aatrox before. But the main things I really liked about the old aatrox was his risk factor. Mainly with the W to deal extra damage but at the cost of your health. I really like that idea of gameplay where you can risk dying and outplaying the enemy. The thing that really needed to be changed before was his passive and revive. Before the reworks the revive was basically just a dumbed down version of the anivia egg except it revived quicker and didnt heal you very much. Most of the time it was pretty useless. His lore is something that I really enjoyed reading about and is honestly my only connection that I have to aatrox now. After the rework and where he is now, I find him incredibly hard to play. One of my most hated champions is Riven both to play as and to face. So yea. I just dont think the rework is in aatrox's character design or the way you would think the champion to be based on lore. But whatever were never seeing the old aatrox again not that he would be any good in the state of the game where anti healing is very powerful

My guess: the buff and rework were assigned to 2 teams at around the same time: to have the buff the people hate him less while another team work on a full rework. The buff team exceeded the expectation so people not only stopped hating Aatrox, they started loving him but now the rework is finished. Riot had to decide to either throw away a team's work or stick with the original plan. Nobody likes having their work thrown away so we got the rework.

The thing is that... this champion that you like isn't Aatrox... Aatrox has been deleted as this new champion was release. I love the design of this new champ and think that they did an amazing job even with the gameplay ! EXECPT for the name, he should have his own unique name. And the name of Aatrox should have been deleted at the same time as the champ. Recycling his name onto another champ and calling it a ""rework"" is just dishonest and ridiculous. A revert never was an option as this would mean deleting this new champ with a recycled name, no champ should be deleted, never. They simply should release a new champ with the exact same gameplay as the previous Aatrox and Aatrox main will be happy(and Aatrox OTPs will grateful)

I loved Aatrox when I started playing lol in 2015- it went so far, that he was the first champion I bought once I had enough IP. I leveled up to (back then the max) level 5 and continued to use him even tho he wasnt good. When his mini rework came I was happy, completely unaware what they would to to him afterwards. I loved my newly buffed main champ and played with him and wasnt disregarded as a troll or a feeder or anything. And then the rework came around... I played 2 more rounds with him and never touched him again. Sometimes I jump in the training tool and fiddle around a bit because it feels like visiting an old friend but he is just gone- there is no similarities to the old one, aside from his ult making him bigger and stronger.

I remember when aatrox was my main, literally played him from his release till his rework. Hated the rework so much i never touched him again, the same with swain.

I played the original aatrox so much I remember finding out if from the very start of the match you kept spamming ur e before the minions come, you could get in lane with max meter. Seems simple but I've never seen anyone else do this trick. You had to kinda spam ti from 0:00 to get it to work.

Odd how so many mains came back to a completely different champ, well there are other players that have come to love him as he is so I don't mind seeing change.

As someone who ran Aatrox back in the day.. recently came back and was shocked to see how horrible the new champ is. Rip

I wasnt able to experience the old Aatrox for myself but I'd love to play the old Aatrox for atleast 1 match.

We need a video about Urgot. The most powerful and oppressive champion that people rarely play.

I really miss the old Aatrox. He was so fun to play. And I also didn't think he was weak, he worked well for me.

I feel you bud, mained him from release and had success jungling him in all metas, sure he had faults and hard lost certain match ups but most champs do, i found ways to adapt and now all that knowledge is wasted

Shit, right before the rework people were spamming Rageblade+Titanic+ tanky items and were clearing house.

I applaud Riot for taking creative risks with their champions. That being said, wtf are they thinking half the time?

i liked the old aatrox in the jungle. i actually played him for quite some time after his release. the sustain in the jungle was awesome, the clearpseed was decent and the ganks were good aswell with his q gap closing knockup and his slow

I played Aatrox before the rework and fell in love with him. And one day: BAM, he is Aatrox no more, but simply a Riven with a stick up his ass. Ever since I even leave ARAMs if I can't reroll/trade champions. Its a shame, really.

Aatrox was my main since season 4 and i was pretty bumbed out when they changed him because he was already perfect before

He was more fun and balanced then he is right now. He sucks right now, tanks beat him, mages beat him, ranged champions beat him. Picking any other bruiser is better then picking aatrox.

Glad I got him to Level 7 mastery before he was even reworked. The last time I played him, I towerdived someone and I didn't revive.

What if there was a game mode where we could play just these all old champions? It would be awesome just for chill n fun since a lot of people have been playing for so long (including me) and they sure miss them and the old LoL essence. Damn.
