Which old champions do you think would completely annihilate todays League?

There has been a lot of interesting stuff in the history of league when it comes to champions, let it be someone with 6 Sunfire Capes burning people alive while being invisible the whole time or a guy buying 6 Tiamat and killing whole teams in a couple of auto attacks. With this post I wanted to show you 3 old champions which I think would completely dominate the rift in todays League. First up let's start with this glorious bastard https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/leagueoflegends/images/a/a6/Sion_Render_old.png/revision/latest?cb=20180803235508 If you don't know who this abomination is, it's old Sion For those who don't know the old Sion ima give you a quick run-down of his abilities > Passive: Feel no Pain > Sion has a 40% chance to take up to 30/40/50 reduced damage from basic attacks. > > Q: Cryptic Gaze > Sion's gaze terrifies the target enemy, dealing 70/125/180/240/300 (+90% AP) magic damage and stunning them for 1.5 seconds. > > W: Death's Caress > Sion shields himself for 100/150/200/250/300 (+90% AP) for up to 10 seconds. > Can be detonated to deal 100/150/200/250/300 (+90% AP) magic damage > > E: Enrage > TOGGLE: Sion gains bonus attack damage but his basic attacks cost health. > BONUS AD: 25/35/45/55/65 > > R: Cannibalism > For 20 seconds, Sion gains 50/75/100% bonus life steal, 50% bonus attack speed, and his basic attacks heal surrounding allies for 25/37.5/50% of the damage dealt. You might think to yourself "oh yeah AP Sion was busted" and yeah it was but it wasn't much worse than todays Galio, what I want to talk about is his AD variant So 100% life steal, you know how much that is? {{champion:75}} {{item:3072}} {{item:3812}} {{item:3146}} {{item:3074}} {{item:3074}} That is 98% life steal right there All of that and then some Sion had in his R (seen only from the life steal standpoint) Next big thing is that you basically have 50% life steal for your team, if you do 500 damage per auto you heal your team by 250 everytime you auto attack --> This would work on minions and monsters too!!<--- Now just try to imagine the carnage with old Sion and todays items {{item:3053}} {{item:3748}} {{item:3046}} {{item:3071}} {{item:3065}} You basically become immortal when you ult and you make your entire team immortal too. It's as if you replace Soraka heal with her ultimate and add Taric ult as her new ult while dealing more damage than a 5 stack Darius. Speaking of Soraka Remember old Soraka? A quick run-down again for those who don't > Passive: Salvation > Soraka's health and mana restoring abilities are 1% more powerful for every 2% of the target's missing health or mana. > > Q: Starcall > Soraka summons a shower of stars to fall from the sky, striking all nearby enemy units within range for 40/65/90/115/140 (+40% AP) magic damage and reducing their magic resistance by 6 (+1% AP) for 5 seconds. This effect stacks up to 10 times. > > W: Astral Blessing > Soraka blesses a friendly unit, restoring 70/120/170/220/270 (+35% AP) health and granting them 50/65/80/95/110 (+15% AP) bonus armor for 2 seconds > > E: Infuse > ALLY CHAMPION CAST: Soraka drains 5% of her maximum mana to restore 20/40/60/80/100 (+5% maximum mana) mana to her target ally > > ENEMY CAST: Soraka silences the target and deals 40/70/100/130/160 (+40% AP) (+5% maximum mana) magic damage to them. > > R: Wish > Soraka fills her allies with hope, restoring 150/250/350 (+55% AP) health to herself and all friendly champions. Doesn't sound THAT bad right? Well not until you hear that Q had a static 2.5 second cooldown and that she was able to give herself mana. Yes you read that right, also starcall affected ALL enemies, even minions. She was able to push and poke at the same time, heal up and give herself mana to do it all over again. Not only that but when you stood near her for too long she straight up dealt true damage to you, actually she dealt BONUS damage since it's flat 60 pen on her Q at max stacks and there is no champion with more than 60 MR in the early levels. It was possible to have negative MR against her. If old Soraka was here today she would bully lanes harder than a Pantheon and Renekton combined. No way to escape the poke, she has literally infinite sustain, she pushes you in 24/7, she gains a mini afterschock after she heals herself to negate damage, buying MR doesn't do shit since she will hit it down to 0 anyway. Long fights against her are bad, short ones are bad, there is nothing you can do unless you are some AP lane bully yourself, in which case, good luck killing her before she kills you. And now, to the last on my list Poppy! A quick run-down once again > Passive: Valiant Fighter > When Poppy takes non-turret damage higher than 10% current health, she reduces the excess amount by 50%. > > Q: Devastating Blow > Poppy's next basic attack is enhanced to deal 20/40/60/80/100 (+8% of target's maximum health) (+100% AD) (+60% AP) bonus magic damage. > > W: Paragon of Demacia > Passive: Poppy gains 3.5 bonus attack damage and bonus armor for 5 seconds every time she deals or takes damage, stacking up to 10 times. > > Active: Poppy gains maximum Paragon of Demacia stacks and 20-25% bonus movement speed for 5 seconds. > > E: Heroic Charge > Poppy dashes to the target enemy, dealing them magic damage and carrying them along with her. If they collide with terrain, she deals them bonus magic damage and stuns them for 1.5 seconds. > Total damage: 125/200/275/350/425 (+80% AP) > > R: Diplomatic Immunity > Poppy focuses the target enemy champion for the next 6/7/8 seconds, dealing them 20/30/40% increased damage and becoming immune to all effects not originating from her target for the duration. First of all, Lollipoppy would be back Second of all, we have seen with Irelias damage reduction and Jax counterstrike that anything that can survive by itself and reliabely deal a lot of damage is REALLY good in this meta How about 8 seconds of COMPLETE damage immunity from champions and towers (nothing works, not even true damage or ignite) while being able to freely do whatever you want and not sitting on a spot like Irelia. This is a Tryndamere R on steroids, you deal absurd damage to the guy you ult and you aren't forced to only hit your target. You can ult a Soraka, then engage on 3 ppl while getting not damaged at all and wail on the 3 guys around Soraka. The only thing that held Poppy back from becoming an absolute beast back then was the rather poor itemization for her. But in todays league... oh yeah that would be a nightmare to deal with {{champion:78}} {{item:3508}} {{item:3053}} {{item:3078}} {{item:3068}} {{item:3001}} Chain Q's and Stuns because of ER, Steraks works well with passive and Mask would amp her damage even more. She would do a crap-ton of hybrid damage so good luck itemizing against that.
