We already wrote a Kennen birthday article - https://gosu.ai/blog/lol/league-of-legends-happy-birthday-kennen-gosu-ai/

There are a few champions released in May over the decade that definitely seen massive play. Some champions like Akali, were very popular some years, but completely dropped off the others. But Braum is just played every year without basically any noticeable drop. Except 2021. This year, he seems outclassed.
