  • What’s up guys it’s me Jeremy!

  • So Camille is finally out on the pbe, and I was pretty excited to play her right off

  • the bat since I felt like my predictions and speculations for her abilities turned out

  • to be pretty accurate actually!

  • Well to be fair I can’t say that the predictions were too difficult to make, but still I’m

  • happy about that one, and man I gotta say after playing her in a bunch of games, this

  • might actually be the most entertaining champion to play riot has released all year.

  • She was seriously an absolute blast to play and you guys are gonna love her I can guarantee

  • it.

  • And we also got to play on the new winter map since the PBE is set up to test out that

  • map that’s gonna be coming soon!

  • And of course I wanted to goto the PBE to try with the goal of trying to figure out,

  • just how good is Camille?

  • And if you enjoy the video hit that like button and lets begin!

  • So Camille is definitely by far designed to be a top laner for sure.

  • She could definitely work as a mid laner or maybe even as a jungler, but having access

  • to the walls and open space of top lane is really powerful to her, and she has much stronger

  • matchups in top lane anyway since she probably has a rough time versus utility mages in lane,

  • although I could definitely see her working as like an anti assassin counterpick in the

  • mid lane kind of like irelia mid or something similar.

  • And she really deliverys on the overall style that she was intended to be designed with,

  • essentially she works as an anti-assassin assassin pretty much, or about as close as

  • you could get to that sort of style.

  • She’s got a lot of bruiser tendencies and is a great duelist, but also has a lot of

  • assassin-esque capabilities that all flow together quite nicely and make her feel super

  • slick and a total blast.

  • Her laning phase is pretty solid, I’m not gonna say that it was super insane, but she

  • has a lot of nice tools at her disposal.

  • Her W gives her some nice sustain in case you lose out on trades, and her passive is

  • really amazing for short quick trades every now and then.

  • With top lane since you have a bunch of walls to work with, it’s not too difficult to

  • just initiate off of a wall, land a stun, combo your damage, and then either back off

  • and wait for your passive to come up again, or just go for the all-in kill.

  • At first she’s not like super crazy, she can be vulnerable to harass potentially since

  • her passive has a somewhat long cooldown, but what really seals her for me, is because

  • of her ultimate, she just snowballs like crazy.

  • If she gets ahead in lane she can just ult and get kills over and over and over again,

  • so she snowballs pretty hard for sure, and with decent trading power it’s not too difficult

  • to get that initial lead as well.

  • Her teamfights are pretty interesting, since your ultimate causes all nearby opponents

  • that are not the target of the ability to get knock backed, a pretty large distance

  • actually they get knocked just outside of the ultimate radius, which is kind of insane

  • since it gives you the ability to actually be able to just straight up jump in and try

  • to burst down a target, so it actually gives her some strong initiation power, which is

  • a big advantage that she has over the more traditional assassin champions.

  • Her ultimate also makes her a lot more reliable at locking down a target, which is again another

  • advantage over a more traditional assassin.

  • She lacks the burst and one shot power that a full damage assassin might have, but it

  • makes her generally a lot more useful in teamfights since she can fulfill the role of a true assassin,

  • a bruiser, or even a front line tank if necessary, and the added crowd control from her ultimate

  • puts in a lot of work as well.

  • She’s also great at cleaning up since her E chases people down really well, and overall

  • her utility makes her shine nicely in teamfights for sure.

  • She’s not as strong at splitpushing or some of the more unconventional strategies compares

  • to a regular assassin, since she lacks waveclear, and her burst isn’t super amazing, it’s

  • more a decent amount of sustained dps over time in chunks with triforce procs mixed in

  • and stuff, but she can definitely make a lot of plays happen in the mid and late game.

  • So next let’s take an in-depth look at her abilities.

  • Now I’m going to assume you already know roughly what her abilities do or at least

  • that you have read the champion reveal that was released on leagueoflegends.com.

  • Starting with her passive.

  • Now the really interesting thing about this ability, is that the shield is determined

  • based on the opponent.

  • You know it gives a shield of ap or ad based on what the opponent is, and what type of

  • shield you get is actually calculated by the damage that the opponent has done throughout

  • the game.

  • If the opponent has dealt more magic damage in the game thus far, it gives her a magic

  • shield, and if the opponent has dealt more physical damage throughout the game it gives

  • her a physical damage shield.

  • Now that dynamic makes the passive super reliable and really effective, so it actually pulls

  • quite a bit of weight and gives her an awesome dueling power.

  • Also this passive is crazy during the laning phase, it’s definitely her number one tool,

  • her bread and butter for winning trades, and using the passive effectively will allow you

  • to dominate a ton of matchups.

  • Her Q is an ability that was a little bit finicky at first when I started playing her.

  • It took me about a game or two to get used to the delay on the second activation to get

  • the increased damage and partial true damage, but when you wait for the delay the second

  • part of this ability does a nice chunk of damage for sure.

  • It’s also an auto attack reset, both procs are an auto reset actually, so this q gives

  • her quite a nice bit of burst if you use it to the max potential, because you can auto

  • attack, reset your auto by using the Q, fit in two auto attacks while you wait for the

  • delay and then you can reset your auto again for the second proc of Q with some true damage.

  • All of that can be done in about two seconds so it gives her a pretty nice chunk of damage

  • on a somewhat short cooldown.

  • Her Q is probably the best ability to max first as well, it’s just her main tool for

  • dealing damage.

  • It also procs tri force super well since the delay on the second proc is 1.5 seconds, the

  • exact delay of the sheen proc cooldown.

  • So this ability makes triforce pretty much a must buy on her, it’s just way too good

  • for the combo.

  • Her W is definitely her weakest ability for one main reason, you can’t actually attack

  • during the cast animation.

  • It has a really long animation, and I found myself losing a lot of damage in fights actually

  • because I mistakenly chose to cast my w when I could have autoed twice instead.

  • That said though the slow on it is super powerful, and it actually has a pretty nice heal on

  • it too.

  • The heal has a small cap against minions, but her gives her a relevant amount of sustain

  • in lane as well as some percent max hp damage, which gives her a lot of power against tanks,

  • again making her an even better fit for the top lane.

  • Now her W doesn’t do a lot of damage, so when I tried maxing it first, it actually

  • felt quite weak.

  • In certain matchups you might be able to max it second, but I would recommend maxing W

  • last.

  • Next up we have her E, and oh man this ability.

  • The main thing that makes it super crazy is that the actual range on this ability is pretty

  • outrageous.

  • Even if you are using it as an escape, it’s got an awesome range, and when you use it

  • towards an enemy champion the range of the second dash gets pretty much doubled, so it

  • becomes an awesome initiation tool, some nice crowd control utility, and it’s just such

  • a dynamic and versatile ability that is also so much fun to use, zipping off walls and

  • stuff this ability is a big part of what made her super-duper fun for me.

  • Now on paper maybe this ability doesn’t look that crazy necessarily, but the overall

  • versatility combed with the pretty ridiculous range made this a super powerful tool that

  • allows you to do so much.

  • You can make plays, pick off targets, initiate fights, make your escape, or just get back

  • to lane faster.

  • This is the ability that I found worked really well when maxing second!

  • And now we have her ultimate, so this ability

  • is something that gives her an advantage which is probably going to make her quite powerful,

  • so unlike other more traditional assassins, Camille’s ultimate gives her reliability,

  • which is something most assassins definitely lack.

  • She completely denies any escape possibilities of opponents, where the idea is that the opponents

  • are supposed to help protect their teammate in the area, but in 1v1 scenarios, or in situations

  • where you have teammates to help dive in with you, it’s just such a powerful tool that

  • you can use, and since it gives her bonus magic damage which is a small flat amount

  • plus percent current hp damage, it gives her kill pressure in lane versus tanks as well.

  • It’s a pretty crazy tool and makes her a really powerful carry champion since it makes

  • it a lot easier for you to out-carry an opponent who is doing well, say if your mid or bot

  • lane feeds really hard or something.

  • I’m not sure if this ability is exactly healthy or balanced, but it does give her

  • something really unique and makes it so that she will always bring something to the table

  • and can’t really get outclassed by anyone in certain situations.

  • Overall In the state that I played her in, I have to say she did feel reasonably powerful.

  • She definitely has a lot of really awesome tools so I would say that she is probably

  • borderline overloaded, and that alone is likely going to be enough to make her an extremely

  • competitive pick for quite some time I would expect.

  • She doesn’t quite bring the damage that a more traditional assassin champion might,

  • but what she lacks in raw burst potential, she makes up for with reliability and utility,

  • and since there is literally no way to play around her ultimate, she will just take a

  • lead and dominate an entire game with a crazy snowball.

  • The ultimate is designed to make it so that the proper counterplay is having your team

  • assist you, but if you have a lead, or if youre playing soloq where most teams will

  • be uncoordinated, she seriously has insane potential to carry because of that ability.

  • I don’t like saying that champions are completely broken or super overpowered after playing

  • them on pbe, because the pbe is a really sketchy server, you know there’s no real matchmaking

  • since everyone has a fresh account, and a lot of the times you just play against people

  • that are significiantly under your skill level so you could stomp with even the worst champion

  • ever.

  • But I will say that she plays really well, she has a ton of tools at her disposal, and

  • she brings a lot of significant advantages that cause her to outclass a lot of other

  • champions, potentially even other full on assassin champions, and she definitely did

  • not feel weak.

  • Except for when I tried maxing W, yeah don’t max W first on her.

  • Either way though, that’s just about gonna wrap up all of my thoughts on Camille thus

  • far.

  • Again she was super super fun to play, so I definitely recommend trying her out when

  • you get the chance, either on the PBE for yourself, on launch, or a couple weeks after

  • launch when she joins the free champion rotation.

  • But looks like that’s gonna be it from me, if you guys enjoyed the video hit that like
