    for me it has to be Kindred, when she came out, she changed the meta alot, graves jungle was alredy a thing and there was nothing similar to graves(quinn was similar but weaker). Then when kindred came she changed meta in the jungle and around the jungle, her ult and stacking made people paly differently, champions like gragas and azir got more popular due to their ultimates, they could knock people out of it. People treated kindred jungle marks like mini objectives, when kindred used passive on you, you could call for a gank soon, and ask top to prepare tp play, or kindred could use it as a mind game... Kindred is most influential champ that came out in last few years... I agree that there were op champs, but noone changed the meta and playstyle as much as kindred did, never enjoyed playing her, and I suck playsing marksman jungle overall, but she changed playstyles all over the map, not just in her role.

    What do you think about this?

    I firstly thought Jhin, Bard, Tahm or even Rek'sai tho it's not so played (in my queue), but after reading your comment I changed my mind. :D

    I totally agree with you, bringing ADC in jungle did changed a lot.
    I would say that in 2nd place could be Bard, its totally changed support plays, ppl are rewarded for roaming while ADC get more XP. Also his E allows u to go faster from lane to lane and gank from location that is unaveable with any other champ, also his ulty is one of the best tools for "pick" comps and u can dive so easy with it

    Yeah, I agree, Kindred shaked meta rly hard. Also Rek'sai, before her if I remember well, tank junglers weren't played as much as now. After her release Sejuani and Gragas became popular as well..

    Interesting, why would you think rek changed the game alot? he seemed like just another tanky jungler with global mobility, nothing that wasn't already seen

    I think Jhin, but I am probably not right. Kindred/Ekko/Rek'Sai or older Zac/Vi
