she's a top tier jungler since scuttle changes. Kindred is one of these rare junglers who's impactful early and scales great.

: if you oneshot someone coming out of invis, you did not make any sort of a skilled play. with pink wards the way they were, they forced invis assassins to play strategically and actually BE GOOD AT THE CHAMPION THEY WERE PLAYING. Back in the day, pink wards sure as hell didnt stop a good rengar or shaco from oneshotting a squishy. invis champions should have to learn to adapt, and especially now that duskblade is in the game with its bullshit passive, they have zero excuse for not being able to one shot any squishy in the game.
> pink wards the way they were, they forced invis assassins to play strategically and actually BE GOOD AT THE CHAMPION THEY WERE PLAYING actually, no. Pink wards forced invis assassins to be 24/7 splitpushers if anyone in their team knew that grouping+putting pink at their center will make said assassin 100% useless. Back in the day pinks stopped shaco (rengar not, but it's due to his leap range) from having any impact in teamfights, because all what he could do is run at someone while being revealed by a pink. Squishy assassin running at someone, sounds like he won't die in 1 sec yes? Old assassins basically relied on enemies being fucking dumb. They couldn't do anything by themselves against good players. Thankfully this is gone now. Please, don't act like buying 75 gold item to negate a purpose of entire champion is a skillful and balanced play. It's just not. Why couldn't i buy an item for 75 gold which would make me immune to ranged autoattacks then? also > if you oneshot someone coming out of invis, you did not make any sort of a skilled play. well neither did you, rightclicking someone from range is as skillful as oneshots from range.

So its basically FUCK the 20 million people that play this shit everyday, lets worry about how 1 million in the upper tier feels. FUUUUHK that. Zed shreds absolutely everyone, EVERYONE.... but he cant do triple kills in platnium+ so lets buff him. smh
below plat literally anything can rampage. 20 million people or more ale playing this game like shit, and they can beat each other with totally random ass builds on random ass champions. Im 100% sure that someone right now is hard carrying a plat below game with AP Warwick, Toplane Taric or Nocturne mid, but it doesn't fucking matter. Do you want these to get nerfed too? Balancing game around low elo is just straight up dumb, because nerfs were just unjustified.

unless you're incredibly far ahead you can't deal 1200-1800 (base hp)+300-600 (pd shield)+10% of max hp from overheal. In this time any crit adc will rampage. Tristana can kill any zhonyaless mage with bomb+4 autos after 2-3 items.

Zed uses w and he's unable to farm for 22 secs. Zed is easily abusable but most players are scared to come close and harass W-less Zed. You're not supposed to farm for 22 secs if you use WEQ to more than half HP someone with electrocute procs from 650 range which no other assassin can do. You also out of all assassins have an IWIN R button that not only gives you an invulnerability window, but multiplies your damage potential and thus scaling massively compared to other assassins on top of that same ult giving you yet another shadow to juke/escape with while all the other assassins don't have such an overloaded ult. What other assassin can kill Revenge's Riven in Tiwtch Rivals? Oh, right, none other than Zed. Zed gets to start with longsword and 3 pots every game against a mage, who at best gets doran's ring+2 pots or dark seal with 2 refillable pots. Even with resolve secondary as Zed you half HP most mages with a WEQ electrocute combo. Your job as Zed isn't to get farm early, it's to get XP and push the opponent out of lane by landing a single WEQ combo because that's all you need to put them in kill range by the time you hit lv6, so they are forced to decide whether they want to try to stay and keep xp while risking giving you a kill and snowballing you, or backing to base and still fall behind on xp so you'll always have a level up all in threat on them. Not like last hitting as Zed is hard considering his passive gives him easy mode last hits almost as braindead as Annie, and Zed has much better waveclear than Annie on top.
> You're not supposed to farm for 22 secs if you use WEQ to more than half HP someone with electrocute procs from 650 range which no other assassin can do. In order for zed to proc electrocute he needs to hit you with double q. Why do you even walk into the second one? Also probably more than half of the mages have spells with range bigger than 650, you can bully him too yknow > You also out of all assassins have an IWIN R button that not only gives you an invulnerability window, but multiplies your damage potential and thus scaling massively compared to other assassins on top of that same ult giving you yet another shadow to juke/escape with while all the other assassins don't have such an overloaded ult. Same "IWIN" r button makes your next position very telegraphed and anyone with a brain will cc you short while after landing. If Zed actually uses his R to dodge your stuff then you got outplayed. And yes, Zed ult multiples his damage, but his damage without ultimate is terrible. And you know what that does? Makes him ult reliant, which is good. And most of the assassins have a way in-way out. Examples. Kha E reset+R. Kata E resets. Evelynn R. Talon E. > What other assassin can kill Revenge's Riven in Tiwtch Rivals? Oh, right, none other than Zed. because a simple tournament which consists only streamers is a accurate view of balance. No one else could kill Revenge's Riven because... they were inferior players to Revenge. Also Zed is an assassin with biggest outplay potential in the class. > Zed gets to start with longsword and 3 pots every game against a mage, who at best gets doran's ring+2 pots or dark seal with 2 refillable pots. Even with resolve secondary as Zed you half HP most mages with a WEQ electrocute combo. Mages can start {{item:2033}} yknow. Pro players do it all the time. And i recently played Gragas mid vs Zed with electrocute, after eating his WEQ+electrocute i lost like 30% of my hp, not 50%. > Your job as Zed isn't to get farm early, it's to get XP and push the opponent out of lane by landing a single WEQ combo because that's all you need to put them in kill range by the time you hit lv6, so they are forced to decide whether they want to try to stay and keep xp while risking giving you a kill and snowballing you, or backing to base and still fall behind on xp so you'll always have a level up all in threat on them. And mages job is to hardshove him and don't let him close the gap. 650 isn't that much of a range, most of the mages can waveclear from away. Also, wooo, assassin have a kill pressure on mage after poking him once. HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN, ASSASSINS SHOULDN'T BE ABLE TO KILL ANYONE > Not like last hitting as Zed is hard considering his passive gives him easy mode last hits almost as braindead as Annie, and Zed has much better waveclear than Annie on top. Well yes, Zed can lasthit easily. So what? Different champions have different strengths and weaknesses. Overall you're too biased vs Zed to talk rational. Just think a bit if Zed is TRULY that good, and ask yourself how often Zed loses/wins a game.

In some situations, yeah. But if a weaker heal on my carry isn't gonna save them then I'd rather the beefier single target heal
well i'd say that we have enough single-target great shielding/healing in game, and for exchange new kayle ult is MUCH better as a support, especially vs any kind of divers
Lapis (OCE)

KoKoboto (NA)
: I'd prefer a stronger single target heal then the 2 target heal Kayle currently has
I know that kayle players would prefer it. But yknow why it works that way? Because kayle can't have ridiculous laning sustain. She's a hypercarry and her laning being shit is 101 of her design. Making single-target heal stronger would make her laning really strong against enemies with weak/mediocre poke
Burgress (NA)
: What can i do as [Tryndamere top] to help my bottom lanes in (lane phase)
pray to rngesus that your botlane is the better one. Current meta is "better bot wins" again and crit adcs outscale everyone at two items, so uh... you can also play stuff like {{champion:98}} {{champion:59}} {{champion:79}} {{champion:57}} {{champion:111}} top with {{summoner:12}}, rush {{item:3193}} {{item:3109}} {{item:3190}} and cover their asses (and lose all your plates by 8 minute). I can guarantee you that it works (sometimes) and feels totally miserable to play (always)

they're op and crit deserves nerfs again

she's not weak, maybe compared to sivir or jinx she's. But compared to non-adc she's fucking decent
: I wish the E gave active range for 10 seconds like before. I guess I'm a melee champion now, so I better have MELEE BASE STATS new Q is really cool, but the hitbox might be too thin. I hope the E cooldown is short R is fucking stupid. 160s CD rank 1 means the ability is gonna be ASS to use. I want invul, not damage, give back my short cooldown. R needs to have no mana cost OR increase kayle's mana. E needs to restore at least half it's cost on killing minions with the empowered attack.
you basically want to make kayle bonkers in lane (especially vs melees) while keeping her ridiculous lategame what about no?
: Yes , they are good it makes Zed players that miss everything less rewarding and more rewarding to Zed players that hit everything but that won't deny that he was strong and got a buff to even get stronger in the hands of good players

Im glad that she can't aa for 1.5 secs after ulting, that's a good change Okay, but melee hypercarry with 5 seconds of invulnerability and a dash is fine?
yes, because he's easily kiteable in teamfights, his "invulnerability" isn't actually invulnerability and he doesn't have any innate defense shred. Trynda is a top notch duelist and bad-to-mediocre teamfighter, Kayle was a top notch teamfighter and top notch duelist who was gated only be her early (which wasn't even bad due to her E)

: Well from the one game i DID play with her so far she's extremely weak and vulnerable early. In most cases you can't even cs.
she's a hypercarry, she should be total shit in lane and get bullied by nearly everyone (vayne should too but she's fair and balanced :)))) )

: I'm honestly disappointed in Riot for buffing crit itemization back up to improve the state of Marksmen. ADC is supposed to be the late game class Riot! Not the two-item class! You want to buff ADCs? Just _give us late game back_.
or just nerf the 2 items spike since you guys still have most ridiculous lategame in the game
: I don’t see how Adc is stronger than is 8.11 but w/e And Lucien is only strong because black cleaver is too strong an item. It needs the cdr either ripped off of it, or the armor shred nuked down. Bork also could do with some changes. Maybe have it’s lifesteal Not apply to the bonus damage from its passive.
they aren't obviously stronger than before 8.11, but they're broken again. Just a bit less broken.
Saianna (EUNE)
: the thing is, this new conqueror will be so abused by every ADC and fighter, you can't even imagine. Sure bruisers will have better time vs tanks, but EVERYONE will have worse time alltogether. Listen, I... dislike the idea of handing true damage to everything. But in this case I could understand it. But does it also have to add damage AND lifesteal? It's obviously made not for bruisers, but ADCs. Would I have better idea? Dunno, maybe. But i'd try not to just toss even more damage where it's not needed.
Saianna (EUNE)
: or maybe it means he doesn't want true damage to be everywhere? We don't really need it, unless you just want more damage.
conqueror's true damage was a good idea how to make bruisers stronger vs tanks without buffing the squishy-popping ability of bruisers. If it would give less AD im 100% sure that there would be 0 complaints about it. If you have a better idea how to fix previous issue then im listening
: But if she's melee for the laning fase can you complain about Kayle being a ranged toplaner or not? I'm not sure tbh
yes i can since laning on toplane goes further than lvl 11 which means she basically is a ranged toplaner
: Zhonyas is op and she will have ap ratios so sure she will buy it.
so she's going to be combination of vayne and random enchanter, cool

Saianna (EUNE)
: then they lose the game and again and again untill top laners will learn. It'll be a week, maybe 2. You could always link support items to summoner spell, just like smite has its items
you couldn't link support items to summoner spell since there's no support-only spell
: until they remove the true damage portion of conqueror from the game its not enough of nerf. it could be 1% and its still too much in my opinion

No because it required two specific picks. How about alistar kalista, is that op because they get a lot of cc? No because it take two specific picks. How about Kayle, zilean and aatrox with a ga? Things that require two specific picks are not generally op, that’s just drafting smart and using synergy.
there's a difference in combos like gnarvan, galio+camille or kindred+zilean and any hypercarry+any peelbitch. If you're scared about enemy comp going for the gnarvan, you just ban gnar or jarvan and it's fine. How im supposed to ban all the adc hypercarries and enchanters?
