Riot's Reasoning for PD Changes is Downright Laughable

So, in case you missed it in the patch notes, here is how they're trying to justify the existence of a crit version of Sterak's Gage. "Existing defensive options for crit marksmen (Maw of Malmortius, Guardian Angel, Mercurial Scimitar) set users far enough behind on core damage builds that they can't contribute carry-level damage in fights even though they're living longer." Basically, Riot is saying that when ADCs build one of the current defensive options, they live longer at the cost of dealing less damage, and that the point of this PD rework is to allow ADCs to have the same level of survivability while not losing any damage. So, I mean, when can {{champion:238}} {{champion:91}} get a Lifeline item that gives AD+Lethality? When can {{champion:55}} {{champion:131}} get some magic pen on {{item:3157}} ? If we're giving ADC a defense item that doesn't get in the way of them critting our faces off, then we all deserve to have some defensive options that doesn't gimp our damage at all, right???? Or is this just ADCs getting spoon fed game-winning advantages once again, for no reason other than the fact that Meddler is a Gold AD main?
