How To Play Leblanc S8 ?

Hi, I’m an old Leblanc player, and a big fan of Leblanc. But I’m really not sure how to play her in season 8.

The problem is that the meta is shifting away from the one-on-one assassin meta that Leblanc thrives in. The ADC role has been dominated by hypercarries such as Kai’Sa and Kog’Maw. These champions have so much damage that they can just win teamfights singlehandedly, which means they don’t need help from their support unless they’re initiating.

For example, I played against an ADC who built full Deathcap, Zhonya’s and Bloodthirster (just think about this for a second). That’s over 9000 damage on his auto attacks alone! And he still had room for more items like Guinsoo’s Rageblade or Rabadon’s Deathcap.

As a result, marksmen are becoming increasingly defensive and we’re seeing a lot less hypercarries in favor of ones who can take some punishment (e.g., Xayah). This means that supports like Lulu or Tahm Kench who have been traditionally weak against assassins are now doing well again because they can protect their carries from assassins like Leblanc
