Every player has a champion that they have a pathological hatred of. A champion that they despise so greatly that just seeing them on the enemy team is enough to set the blood boiling. For me, that champion is Wukong. He's skillless, brainless, and somehow my entire team will still manage to die to a huge Cyclone regardless of either of those facts. For a player like me, whose success usually relies on brains over mechanics, Wukong is the epidemy is of everything wrong with the game.
And yet, despite that, I'm still here to tell you that if you're a closet lover of the Monkey King -- and yes, I do judge you negatively for that, as a matter of fact -- that nows the time to start busting him out. Over the course of the last few
One must be careful when playing Wukong, however, as his laning is always on the edge of a knife. Take care that you neither die in a 1v1 nor overextend yourself, as Wukong is just about one of the worst
Champions to be on the look out for are the last remnants of the tank top lane meta that seems to be quickly fading. The most obvious of these is Sejuani, who's an absolute monster at the moment and is also uniquely good against Wukong due to most of her damage not being reliant on being able to see him. Wukong players will usually harass with a combination of all their primary abilities in a combo that normally allows Wukong to walk away while invisible, immune to counterattack. Well, Winter's Wrath doesn't care if you're invisible at all, and the slowing power that Sejuani brings to the table also ensures that she'll be able to follow up with a devastating Permafrost combo once Wukong gets out of stealth. Secondly, be on the lookout for Renekton, as he is one of the few champions in the game who you cannot ever all-in. The lane is pretty much Wukong's worst nightmare, but while Sejuani will shut down Wukong for an entire game, Renekton will do no such thing. In that
As long as you keep an eye out for those terrible matchups, however, Wukong is likely the champions for you! Players in lower
