Community wants Pyke Nerfs...... but Riot gives him 2 buffs and essentially eliminates his Passive?

Gift of the Drowned Ones (Passive) [Moved to W] "If Pyke cannot be seen by enemies, he will rapidly generate 30-81% of damage he has recently taken from champions, up to 80 (+800% bonus AD)" Bone Skewer (Q) damage increased from 75/125/175/225/275 to 80/140/200/160/320 damage from tapping Q and holding Q now the same value Ghostwater Dive (W) [Moved from Passive] "If Pyke cannot be seen by enemies, he will rapidly generate 35/40/45/50/55% of damage he has recently taken from champions, up to 80 (+800% bonus AD)" Movement speed changed from [40% (decaying to 0% over 5 seconds)] to [40/45/50/55/60% (decaying to 0% over 5 seconds)] ----------------------- What this boils down to: Skewer Hook no longer has a deficit in damage for hitting a hook (more damage) Ghostwater dive now scales up its base move speed in ADDITION to scaling with Lethality (Noice). And...... Pyke now has no Passive, since the HP > AD Conversion is basically Riot's way of compensating him for his dismally low Base AD, and converting the AD he SHOULD have into BONUS AD, so that it applies to his skills..... and because now he basically builds no HP items anyways....... **(And Yes; I know the active part of the Passive is moving to his W; So what? I'm talking about the void of a passive SLOT that creates)** (Does anyone hear the QQ about Lissandra coming back about her once obsolete "manaflow band/presence of mind passive?") ------------------------------- I've generally argued Pyke was balanced, and generally not worth playing to climb, since he's a 50% champ, that heavily relies on his teams to perform. But hey. a couple serious buffs and a Void of a Passive slot that's just asking to be filled with a rework buff..... What could go wrong........ {{sticker:zombie-brand-mindblown}}
