The second week of the NA summer split is over and it is now time to focus on statistics and analysis. In this short article, we will pay attention to the NA top-laners and their favorite picks. Still number one in the charts, Shyvana continues her glorious roam in the top side of the map with a 75% pick-rate, double than any other champion this week, while the amount of bans against Jax has dropped significantly, but the Grandmaster of Arms still remains the most banned out hero with 4 bans out of a total of 5 spent in the top-lane. In fact, the top-lane was the least banned section of the map in North America this week, even the AD-Carries (6) and the Supports (7) got more “attention”. Nevertheless, Jax managed to be part of 3 games this week, as was Renekton, while in fourth place, Lulu played three different roles this week: top-lane (2 games), mid-lane (3) and support (1) – talk about a well-rounded champion.
Jax was the only top-lane champion who won more games than he lost and thus managed to climb all the way to first place of the win-rate leader-board, with a solid 67%. In second place, Shyvana continues her descending trend started in Europe this week and only manages to pull off a 50% win-rate alongside Lulu. In fourth place, Renekton’s resurface did not happen as smoothly as he planned – winning only one of his three games this week, the Butcher of Sands ends his performance with an average 33% win-rate.
All things considered, Jax is this week’s top performer as he was finally allowed to take part in more games and really showed his strength in the mid and late game bringing victories home more often than not. Here are the builds that the pros chose for the Grandmaster of Arms and their respective performance with the champion.
