Thresh and Pyke are in a perfectly fine spot right now. They are probably two of the few champions we can call balanced. I practiced Pyke recently and let's be honest, in the right hands he is **too strong** even. But hey, look what is in the making right before Worlds:
* Death from Below (R) execute damage changed from [200-605] to [250-605]
We all know this game lacks damage, right? How about 25% more base damage on his outplay button?
* Death Sentence (Q)
cost lowered from 80 to 60
cooldown lowered from 20/18/16/14/12 to 16/15/14/13/12
We get it, you want flashy, edgy champions at Worlds. We need mysterious, mobile wet dreams for teenagers. That's why it took them months to finally touch Kai'Sa, Jhin & Graves **still** get completely ignored and Lucian was turned into this oppressive monster. Because f*ck balance and a decently fun game I guess. Gotta sell dem $kin$.
Don't get me wrong, I love Thresh and Pyke. That's why I know **THEY ARE FINE RIGHT NOW**. But nah, they don't get picked in pro play, so let's crank them up to 100% pick/ban status in Solo Queue to fuck their players. BUT AT LEAST I CAN STILL SEE THEM AT WORLDS, RIGHT?
Getting sick of the balance team.
