Hey guys I'm Minishcap1, I've been maining Singed since Season 3 and have
Now Singed has always been countered hard by lifesteal/sustain mechanics. Now this is generally fine because heals are meant to counter DoT damage, but this preseason healing has been so present in every game, and so overturned that poison trail, his main damage dealing tool feels like it's just never going to do enough damage.
Take this clip for example. The enemy champions tanked almost my entire 25 second ultimate duration, strolling through poison trail, while healing hundreds of hp every few seconds. Sylas didn't even itemize for healing at all, building armor, and Wukong lost his lane heavily, while also having 0 magic resistance. I even had a demonic embrace. The crazy part was that I was pretty fed for a Singed at this stage in the game. Healing is just so strong that Signed and champs similar to him, like Morde, get gimped out of so many kills even when piloting their champs very well.
I can back this up with stats:
As we can see, at the end of Season 10, Singed's average kills per game was 4.35, and his max kill spree was 2.12. In addition, his average total damage was 18,108 damage per game.
Also from Lolalytics: Singed's stats for the current patch 10.25 (Preseason 11)
We can see here that Singed's average kills dropped to 3.92, max kill spree dropped to 1.82, and his average total damage dropped to 16.991. His winrate also dropped from 51.5% to 49%.
So not only did Singed lose a ton of damage per game, he also is getting less kills and is popping off in less games due to a lower killing spree. This is party due to DoT items being much weaker this season compared to old Rylais/Liandry combo, but also due to the huge amount of healing the game.
Singed and Morde are currently suffering hard from a lack of good itemization getting slapped by healing. This is not even a question of grievous wounds either. Singed is among the best applicators of grievous wounds in the game. Poison trail debuff lasts for 2 seconds, extending the duration of grievous wounds from 2 to 4, and Demonic ticks for 4 seconds extending the duration to 8 seconds.
It's not really an issue with his kit either. I can still get into a teamfight just fine. I can still fling the right target and ground the right targest and still run around and spread my poison perfectly, but because of the healing enemy champions just don't die. It really sucks to pop ult ghost and Predator to run at the enemy carry, sidestep all of the enemy CCs, and get the perfect W + Fling combo only to see them get a massive shield from Shieldbow and start healing to full health in a few autos.
Items are also an issue because we were led to believe that there would be plenty of AP bruiser items but in reality there are only 3, rift demonic and rylais. Out of those 3, Riftmaker has been gutted for AP bruisers and Demonic doesn't apply enough damage. Rylais is very reliable but is not a damage dealing item as much as it is a utility item.
I'm trying to bring attention to this because the AP bruiser class is suffering hard right now. If you go on singedmains the entire subreddit reads like a depression therapy session, and rightfully so. It sucks to main DoT champs right now.
