: It was because it was something that was being used constantly in pro play, which meant that nidalee had to be constantly nerfed because pro players got far better clear speeds and all ins on her than non pro players. Basically the issue was the consistency of it. Nidalees was very easy to do, and do consistently so long as you knew how to. I am not a super mechanical player and even I could do it in the jg to speed up my clear, although I wasn't great at using it in actual fights.

If they thought it was simple, they would have did the opposite and left it in.
: Riot Game Developers Hate Their Longtime Players and Champions
oh you'll get your new models, you'll get them along with the new champions that will replace the existing ones xd to be fair at least Pantheon doesn't seem like a different champion, he actually feels the same but better

: Akali's rework has failed and she needs either a revert or another rework
So has Evelynn's rework, but who's counting? Pre-VGU: this champion is hard to balance Post-VGU: even harder to balance {{sticker:zombie-brand-mindblown}}
: Why can't Riot move to a fully transparent MMR ranked system?
Because it will make it obvious that ranked matches are blatantly fixed with a certain team winning in mind to keep the the overall picture perfectly balanced at 50%.

: I'm a introverted person and I feel super affected by this. I used to think that I could play Video games all day and realize my true potential. Yet, I was a never ranker in League of Legends and never took a step ahead of my life to actually learn the game. I became a casual player for years and now I don't feel as good when I play video games anymore when I had the job, it wasn't the best job but it was a job anyway. I felt very obligated to be in a workable environment and become professional somehow but I have the feeling of failure of my life once I realize I could have ranked and could have enjoyed playing the game and learning to become a master. Instead I just play ARAM all day with no exception and getting tied up with everything else in plain sight that I just want to work out and solve my problems. I used to do that before and now I've gone too addicted to League in general. I am just a man, who had gone insane should he have played Ranked for once in his life and not regret it. It would have felt like work but the outcome would have been different and not put his own foot in his own neck. I am that rare person and I feel sad most of the time today. I should have followed my heart. {{champion:163}}

You barely socialize when you play League and it's always your choice to engage into it.

: PSA: "Introvert" doesn't mean "Shy" or "Socially Awkward"
People who call themselves introverts and complain on the internet about their lack of friends are socially deprived extraverts. The irony.
: Nothing feels worse than loving a champion who isn't on Riot's favorite list
What's worse is that waiting usually ends in your favorite champion getting deleted and replaced with a new, more shiny, but completely different champion.

A lot of champions can stay in the fight, she doesn't even have any cc. You can kite and kill freely. There is nothing wrong with what you've described. A lot of champs do currently worse things than that.

: Opinion: There is nothing interesting about new Evelynn apart from the "sex" theme
It's cute how you guys are pretending like Evelynn has to use her W to oneshot once she got her first item. W is a warning about getting hard CC'd, something old Eve didn't even have. She can still oneshot out of stealth withoug having to cc you. >And you don't see anything wrong with that? Yikes. If a champion works in multiple roles/playstyles, then something isn't right, unless it was made specifically with that in mind. I see you only like doing what you're told. Big yikes. We just had creativity win a major international championship. Don't tell G2 you're not allowed to take Pyke top. Boring players lose. Thank god you're unaware of other champions that don't have to build the same items every game or you might want to delete them as well. >Finally, because I hate when people lie, Evelynn's popularity (pick rate + ban rate) didn't change all that much. She's picked less, but banned more. Zero sum system. Sorted by Iron. You had one job. Now start hating yourself for lying. I posted a screenshot from the same website, except I didn't sort by Iron. Also getting picked less, but getting banned more means even worse. Why would you ban something that is not even picked that often? Only because it's cancer and unfun to play against.

Ppl always been like this ABUSE what is broken,bugged, etc. You just literally described new Evelynn. Old Eve was played in multiple builds, ad/ap/glass cannon/tanky and was sitting on a healthy winrate most of the time. They specifically got rid of all the diversity to make her a oneshot abomination with zero reactive counterplay.

I have no idea what servers champion.gg uses while gathering their data. LoLAlytics tells you right in the FAQ they use all matches from summoners in all regions, aka they use information from both Normal and Ranked matches. If you read the FAQ for champion.gg, it says they analyze ranked matches for summoners across all regions. There is a big difference between "all matches from all regions" and "ranked matches from all regions", which is why they do not have the same results. Most of the "Summoner Match History" sites show both ranked and normal matches combined in their results, making them super inaccurate in terms of reliable data. Seeing how normal matches have multiples of the same champion, players of all different MMR's in the same matches, and even the possibility of pre-made players against solo players, there is absolutely no way you can ever consider any site that doesn't separate Normal match champion statistics from Ranked match statistics to have useful information regarding the strength of a said champion.

No, I meant that Lolalytics has a toolbar where you can apply filters (server, queue, rank etc) and the website will be showing you the data based on those filters.

So you're saying that having a single skillshot excuses you from being a statcheck champion? Good news then, old Aatrox had not one, but TWO skillshots. I'm waiting for the revert any day now. This was all a terrible misunderstanding.

: All I have to say is, join the club. I've already lost all of my mains {{champion:14}} {{champion:78}} {{champion:39}} {{champion:31}} I can explain Cho if you like, but in a short summary, they ruined him with his W changes and ult rework. When they do a full rework, they don't revert it. Ever. Sorry man, but old Akali is dead. They also don't revert things that people widely like without understanding (like Cho's ult) even if it makes the character worse off for it. Mind you, the only character I ever played "how you're supposed to" was Irelia, and even that I'd changed up near the end of her life cycle.

Add {{champion:28}} to the list. Fun an exciting reset assassin/fighter turned into a walking uninteractive stat check with the same build and play pattern in every situation.
: What is, in your opinion, the worst designed champion in this game?
Evelynn. The long awaited rework, that was supposed to be only visual, instead took at 180 turn on the playstyle and turned an exciting reset assassin/fighter into a slow and boring burst mage that gets banned 80% of the time if viable.

: Fact: Most full VGUs could have been released as new champions and no one would have said a thing
>New Evelynn actually has a telegraphed ability and easy to kill when caught. Do you even play League? New ult is the best escape tool in the game while also being a massive aoe execute. And her "telegraphed" ability is her cc, which she doesnt need to oneshot past 2 items. New Evelynn has been played less but banned more, literally the definition of a bad design. Unfun to play as or against. And you still blindly defend the rework due to some unexplained desire to believe that Riot can do no wrong. Dozens of devs killed their own games wih poor choices, you dont need to defend them like holy bible arguing about things you barely know about. You have been multiple times corrected on your knowledge of playrates and winrates of reworked champions and you never even address it. You keep pulling statements that supposedly prove you right out of thin air. Heres a quick summary: "Nobody played Eve, she needed rework" "Here, look, she was played more than Nueve" "Oh well she was OP and had no counterplay" "Look at her winrate, its been around 50% for months" "But she was cheesy and unfun to play against" "Look at the stats, she is banned more now than before" "Thats because shes finally viable, she was garbage before" So which is it? Make up your mind lmao
