The Distribution

Overall 1792 TrophyHunters were active at least once during December (Last month I calculated almost 10k active users, but that must have been either an error on my side or people just logged in once to receive the after season rewards). The distribution of the number of achieved trees looks like this:

chart (7).png

Around 25% of TrophyHunters managed to complete at least one tree. 7 TrophyHunters completed all trees and another 7 completed 4 trees.

The hardest tree was Heimerdingers tree and the easiest was Lucians. Below you can see how often each of the trees has been achieved:

Top 10 First Turret Champions

Today I will show you what champions are most likely to take down or assist at first turret. I used ~88000 Summoners Rift normal and ranked games from the TrophyHunter database to calculate these statistics.

Here are the Top 10:

10. Jinx, 21.7%

Rank 10 goes to the loose cannon. I did not expect her to be on this list, but I’m not seen much on botlane anyway. I guess she can take the turret fast if she gets rollin’ early.

9. Tristana, 21.7%

Tristana is known for pushing and taking down turrets early. She is one of the few champions that can use abilities on turrets. No wonder she is in the Top 10.

8. Mordekaiser, 21.9%

Mordekaiser is a strong pushing champion on the toplane. He has a lot of turret pressure in particular against tanks. Mordekaisers in my team mostly feed, but it seems there are some skilled players out there.

7. Illaoi, 22.0%

Illaoi is a known face to this Top 10 list, as she was on the Top 10 of 1v2 champions as  well. She is a real lane bully with a lot of push. No wonder she gets first turret so often.

6. Draven, 22.1%

Don’t feed a Draven early kills. It’s so hard to play against a Draven lane if you fell behind. Pretty sure Draven won many of the games where he got first turret.

5. Zyra, 22.2%

This is probably mostly due to Zyra support as I did not differentiate between Zyra support and Zyra midlane. Skilled Zyra players can push the opposing duo of lane in many cases. Probably Zyra support would even be in the Top 3.

4. Xayah, 22.8%

Xayah.png

This one is a big surprise for me. I always thought of Xayah as a strong late game carry but not with a particularly dominant early game. Maybe this is due to some skilled Xayah/Rakan couples? Probably that’s the reason as Rakan is pretty far on the list (rank 32) as well.

3. Caitlyn, 23.3%

Caitlyn is probably one of the most annoying bullies on botlane. The auto attack range advantage seems unfair in many cases. Even in pro play she is often pick to snowball by taking a lot of early turrets starting from botlane. Best adc on this list.

2. Ziggs, 24.0%

The midlaner who can use his powers on turrets – no surprise. Many might remember the times when Ziggs was used a lot in pro play on botlane. He and Zyra made for a poking and pushing duo that took turrets in record times. Nowadays botlane Ziggs is not as popular anymore, but he is still a strong turret danger even in midlane.

1. Yorick, 31.2%

The undoubted number 1 and that even with a huge lead over number 2. The difference between rank 1 and rank 2 is as huge as the difference between rank 2 and rank 34 (Janna)! Yorick has an amazing pushing power by all standards. He has his own army of ghuls, the maiden and soon zz’rot voidspawns. Good luck killing those, Maokai!

The entire list: Top First Turret Rate.
