Popular League of Legends streamer Tyler “Tyler1” Steinkamp is back at it again with another major highlight play.
In a recent scrim session streamed by Tyler1 on Twitch, the T1 streamer managed to land a game-deciding Sion ultimate after a smooth teleport flank that his opponents didn’t see coming. The play happened 19 minutes into the game as Tyler1’s team engaged in a fight at the enemy Raptors. To join the fight, Tyler1 found a ward behind the enemy to teleport which instantly put the opposing champions in a deadly sandwich and without any chance of winning the ensuing battle.
Without much need to consider his options, Tyler1 channeled Unstoppable Onslaught (R) and ran in a straight line into three enemies who had been rooted moments before. This was enough to lock down the targets and kill them in a one quick swoop, as they were already very low on health. Tyler1 finished the fight by hitting the low-health Nocturne, completing one of the quickest Sion quadrakills seen in season 11.
The big play was celebrated in classic Tyler1 fashion, giving all viewers a nice chance to adjust their headset volume with a victorious scream. A few moments later, Tyler1 and his team ended the match in just over 20 minutes.
Sion is a solid champion in League of Legends season 11 and is often picked for the top lane. In patch 11.8, Sion is sitting on a solid 50.42% win rate which makes him seem fairly balanced. In the previous patch, Sion had about the same win rate while having a relatively high pick rate of 4.8%.
When it comes to his damage scalings, Sion mostly scales on ability power. Sion’s Soul Furnace (W) and Roar of the Slayer (E) both scale on ability power and deal magic damage. These abilities alone aren’t enough to build Sion as an ability power champion, but will instead work better as a meat shield for his team. Sion is known as one of the beefiest tanks in League of Legends and is generally built towards this strength, rather than with an emphasis on AP or AD.
