Because of the character. Do you think Kayle mains would use the words «skimpy, curvy swordswoman» to describe Kayle? Does old Kayle seem like a sensual, feminine flower petal? Take Malphite as an example. Make him a human built like Garen and you have what happened to new Kayle. We already have Garen, Darius, Mundo, Jarvan IV and Olaf - do we REALLY need another large, well-built and heavily muscled male character design? I wanted to throw in Sylas too but at least his chains set him apart from the others. Kayle’s new aesthetic us an extremely generic look that’s already shared by like 6 other female champions. I was already concerned when i saw Morgana’s face and how she has those soft, sleek features shared with Kaisa, Neeko, Ahri, Xayah and Soraka. If Kayle was a new champion? Sure. Let her be Dawnbringer Riven’s personality with Kaisa’s body and Neeko’s head. But Kayle isn’t a new champion. She’s one of the oldest in the game, and for half a decade was a symbol of League of Legends. They’ve massacred, no, defiled that symbol. There’s no trace of pride or integrity in the new Kayle - nothing to make her stand out from other champions in the game. She’s as generic as it was possible to make her. I don’t know about you, but when someone takes away someone’s very identity i consider the husk that’s left an abomination.
: Kayle's visual design missed the mark
Frankly what bothers me is her head and especially hairstyle. How the hell do you fit that weird mess in a helmet? Why couldn’t she get a quality hairstyle like Morgana rather than semi-dreadlocks?

I don’t know about you, but it kinda makes sense to me to wear full plate when you’re going to war against all sorts of magical beasts and monsters. Especially when you’re wielding a fucking burning sword. And don’t even get me started on the fact she has wings that she can’t use because she’ll freeze to death. Have you seen those huge eyes?

: Why does Kayle look like she could be prestige bullet angel Kai'sa?
New Kayle is an abomination that takes away EVERYTHING that was unique about Kayle. I haven't felt this betrayed since i heard reworked Aatrox's voice. I wish i'd never seen this rework. I wish i'd kept living blissfully unaware of how they massacred Kayle's identity to turn her into another generic Kaisa.

: Gotta say: Not a fan of Kayle's new look.
Kayle’s face looks like a slightly edited Neeki withRiven colours. Holy fuck it’s so ugly. How can they get Morgana so right and Kayle so wrong? Balance in all things?
: Kayle face needs some work
What the fuck is that hair? What the actual fuck? How does that hair style even make sense under THAT helmet? Why’d she go from a Samus Aran look to Drug addict?
: Tanks SUCKS, building armor feels horrible, champion that are not tank killers are tank killers.
Hey remember back when you picked Malphite to counter heavy AD champs rather than heavy AD champs to counter Malphite?
: Gotta say: Not a fan of Kayle's new look.
A winged Dawnbringer Riven with the voice of that legendary Leona skin. Disgusting. She actually looks better in her pre-rework form. SUPER DRAB colours and abaolutely shitty armor. She used to be a symbol of League back in the day. Can’t believe they’d actually get her THIS wrong.

Such a stupid ability. The only reason it's even problematic is because he has an AP scaling shield. "Half health healing" sounds scary until you realize he's usually healing half of 900 HP. There are several other champions that do the exact same thing. {{champion:19}} {{champion:122}} {{champion:50}} {{champion:420}}
: I know Sylas isn't OP overall but what the actual fuck is that healing?
He only heals much when low on health. He needs to be in melee range. The heal is an interruptible mini-dash. The heal is on a massive cooldown. The heal is his primary damage tool. You should be comparing Sylas to Vladimir, Ryze, Riven, Swain and Zed. When is it EVER a good idea to try and 1v1 these champions?

No, you are correct. After looking at the wall of text in the reworked items i realized they took the unique effects of each energized item and separated them from the "energized" effect, turning them into new unique passives.

That’s a really unfortunate association to make, since Star Guardian Soraka exists in two different incarnations and is likely the most-used Soraka skin.

: Yasuo is the opposite of a stat check, he's a skill check. Everything he does is telegraphed, and his kit revolves around landing a single skillshot. If you dodge the tornado, he can't do much to you, his Windwall can be baited and played around, his shield can be popped with one auto attack, his dash is dependent on minions being nearby, and he's forced to push the wave if he wants to use his abilities. If Yasuo were a stat check, he'd just auto-win a 1v1 when you're weaker than him. Garen is a stat check. Yasuo is a skill check because he only punishes players who can't dodge, can't manage the wave, and can't manage their spell rotations.

Yes, dodge the 1000 range skillshot with a hitbox twice as wide as a fully stacked Cho’gath, that can be turned into a 450-500 unit AOE... On a 2.2 second cooldown. Right... The only champion that consistently shuts down Yasuo is Renekton, and ONLY as long as they’re even. Garen’s Q and ult are both extremely well telegraphed, yet you consider him a stat-check rather than a skill matchup. How come? Because Yasuo’s Q is a skillshot that hits at 4 times the range of his basic attack range? Yasuo’s shield draws minion aggro when popped, and can be recharged both in and out of combat. Similar champions have to avoid any damage for up to 16 seconds to recharge theirs. (Or did they buff Malphite’s passive? I haven’t had an opportunity to check since picking him is the same as forfeiting top lane, as armor no longer matters until mid-game provided you can get 2.5k+ hp and 300+ armor.) I don’t know, «high skill cap» champions like Yasuo, Riven and Vayne haven’t really been feeling that high skill dependent ever since they started 2-shotting everything with their 2-item spikes and true damage out the yordle.

Applies on-hit effects like a ranged master yi. It's his synergy with botrk and his extreme mobility allowing him to efficiently utilize cleaver and it's very tanky stats, making him a jack of all trades - deals hybrid damage, reduces defenses, %hp damage, procs all on-hit effects multiple times per attack, long range dash with extremely short cooldown and a constant in-combat +140-150 movement speed from his items and W active combined. He's basically a marksman juggernaut. We should be glad sterak's gage is melee only.

: Do you guys also have super irrational hatred?
Top lane main, my voice is deeper than many guys’. The only time i do anything resembling anime voice is when i’m talking while crying or my dad’s puppy starts whimpering. I despise players that unknowingly sabotages their own team. Most apparent in top and jungle - an example would be the wnemy ivern a couple matches ago. He LITERALLY spent the entire game camping our mid lane, while bot lane was slowly losing to our jungle pressure and i was literally farming under the enemy top lane turret, just standing there autoing the turret while my lane opponent vladimir couldn’t do anything to stop me. This guy decided in his mind that ganking top or bot lane was impossible, so he just sat in a mid lane bush (on one of our wards) leeching exp from his mid and letting our entire team know we had completely free, unrestricted reign across the rest of the map. It tilts me so hard even when it happens to the enemy team because 1: that means this guy has climbed all the way to plat 1 using that sisgusting «strategy» and 2: i could be getting him on my team tomorrow. Dont even get me started on «solo» laners that give their teams ultimatums if they dont get camped. Gnars, Jayces, Yoricks that DEPEND on their jungler carrying them through laning to even play the game.
: ....Rather than hitting hard or not, the problem sounds like you left your tower a bit before a large enemy wave was pushing into it and Yasou rode that wave into your minions, killed them then crashed it into your tower and then just stood there hitting it while you were presumably shopping before running back. Minions do damage you know? So if he had something like a double wave with a cannon and they were all just hitting the tower then its not strange at all.

So if he had something like a double wave with a cannon and they were all just hitting the tower then its not strange at all. He had a regular wave with 2 extra caster minions, one at 40% hp. The reason i ask is because no other auto attackers can shred turrets that fast - not Jax, not Camille, not Fiora, not Trundle and not even Caitlyn. Yasuo and Tryndamere hit turrets uniquely hard, when their stats are no different from those of similar champions.

: New Conqueror Changes
That's a great change. Although it will be EVEN MORE oppressive on the champions it is already oppressive on, it'll deal a bit less true damage and can be used by all classes now - mages, tanks and marksmen instead of just bruisers with in-built auto resets.
: New Conqueror Changes
Well, there doesn’t seem to be a reset function to it anymore. It’s basically just Irelia’s passive. Adaptive and spell vamp just means it can be used by everyone - not only auto attackers. The healing wont mean jack outside laning phase because every mage in the game rushes morellonomicon, mid jungle top and support.
