From utility bots to hyper carries, the AD carry position may have seen the most drastic meta shifts of any position in Season 7. It frequently swings from one end to the other, and its usefulness is mostly determined by team composition. Sometimes, a side needs both utility and carry potential to make their team complete, so why not get a champion that can do both? Kalista has popped up as a powerful pick as of late, as she is able to go toe to toe with any other AD carry in lane. She also synergizes well with the supports that are currently considered theRead More →
