Following a slight nerf to Ryze in Patch 12.7, the already struggling mid laner’s win rate kept falling. And now Ryze has the worst win rate in the game.

The Rune Mage of Runeterra, Ryze, has always been successful in the professional scene of League of Legends. Legendary players like Faker showed the world what Ryze could do in the right hands. Ryze even has an SKT T1 skin celebrating SKT winning Worlds 2015. He was Faker’s most played champion in that event with a 100% win rate. Ryze is also popular among other professional Midlaners.

Riot nerfed Ryze to counteract his success in the pro scene of League of Legends. But Ryze was already struggling to win games in solo queue. The professional scene and solo queue are entirely different. So Ryze mains were not finding it easy to win games on Ryze. So the community, especially Ryze players, were gutted to see their favorite champion getting another nerf.

Ryze in Pro Play vs. Solo Queue

Ryze does well in Pro play because the players can communicate with their team and use his ultimate properly. Ryze’s ultimate, Real Warp, provides a great way to flank, backdoor, reposition, escape after Baron or Dragon, etc. But that level of coordination is hard to replicate in a solo queue. So Ryze’s Ultimate ability, which is supposed to be his most vital ability, is used to merely reach your lane faster, or sometimes players use it to gank and secure kills.

But Ryze’s nerfs have finally affected the pro scene as well. Ryze was picked only two times in MSI 2022 so far and lost both times. But the effect of the nerf is even severe in Solo Queue.

Ryze’s Win Rate in League of Legends Patch 12.10

Ryze had a 44% win rate in Patch 12.6, according to U.gg. After getting a nerf, the archmage’s win rate kept falling. And now, in Patch 12.10, after the Durability Update, Ryze has a win rate of 40%, the lowest in the League. He has been the weakest mid laner for five patches straight, even before the nerf.

At this point, players are hoping that Ryze will get a rework to make him viable again in Solo Queue. However, as the situation worsens with every patch, Riot should be addressing the issue soon. We will let you know if there is any update to Ryze.
