The state of Crit in league is a big part of why item diversity sucks ass.

I'm not saying "Oh Crit is so weak that you never see these poor items picked up". I'm not saying "Oh Crit is so strong that they're literally the only items getting picked up". I'm not saying anything about whether crit is too strong or not. I'd like to make a comparison between crit in League and crit in Dota. In Dota, Crit is a subset of abilities. Lots of heroes have them innately in their kits, so they don't need to buy an item to let them crit. If you don't have crits but want them, you spend a bunch of gold on an item that gives it to you. **An item**. As in, you buy **one** item, taking up **one** inventory slot. You can't spec your entire build into crits, since there are only two complete items that give crit and **they roll seperately**. You can dip into crits and you **can still build basically whatever the hell you want otherwise**. Meanwhile, look at League. If you're a carry, and you want to use Crit, you need to invest **three item slots into crit**. {{item:3031}} to make your crits do anything Something out of {{item:3086}} to give you attack speed to trigger crits more often Something out of {{item:3086}} or {{item:3508}} to make your crit a reliable DPS tool After that, you only have three slots to work with, so you just need to slot in what you need. {{item:3006}} because your champion probably doesn't have another option. {{item:1053}} Some lifesteal item because you need it to survive. {{item:3026}} or {{item:3156}} or {{item:3033}} So yeah. IMO, Crit in its current state is bad for the game. It's not because "RNG BAD" or "BUFF/NERF ADC PLZ", it's because *every crit build is the goddamn same*, and until crit gets completely overhauled there's no way of changing this. Also, this is neither here nor there, but if crit were removed from their item line, the Zeal items could be made not only applicable to the entire roster, but just much more interesting in general.
