: Vayne is absolute bullshit
Vayne is a type of champ that no matter how hard you beat her in lane, she will be doing A LOT of damage just because of her true damage %. Which is pretty dumb.

Bring back one champ carrying potential. We are way too reliant on team atm, and if your team d.c or plays horribly, you still lose if the enemy team are all decent(even when you are amazingly good).
: Would you say there are any items that need reworks?
Id say, an item focused on ap assassins, like focused on magic pen and not like everything stuck into morello for everyone to take. A better 2nd item route. There are no other decent 2nd item route other than Morello right now.

: {{item:3075}} seems a little underwhelming. I usually end up gettinng it's component specifically for the grievous wounds which you can inflict through other means rather than it's actual unique passive of reflected damage. {{item:3009}} Is also a pretty niche boot that's probably not as good as it should. Maybe a permanent ghost effect that lets you walk over minions or perhaps the Rage passive from black cleaver that increases movement speed every time you auto attack. {{item:3102}} I always thought that this item was way too good for the amount of AP and magic resistance it gives. Hybrid items are fine, but I feel like I'd have less of an issue with this if they boosted one stat by 20 while reducing the other by 20 either way or something. {{item:3041}} I also want them to bring back the AD version of this item, Sword of the occult.

Ekko is an ap assassin though. And more safe than Ahri. Ahri is a burst mage not an assassin. Her early game is not as strong as assassins, so how is she an assassin?

Win midlane, and MAYBE get objectives. Midlane impact as of now is very little compared to jungle and bot. Junglers right now, especially damage heavy junglers like j4 and Vi are amazing. Nunu is also broken. When Nunu is broken, it means objectives have a huge impact in the game. Games are usually decided by which team has the better jungler. Time smite right, steal baron, steal drag, and those alone give you so much advantage over the flow of the game.

Ahri is really bad to play teamfights in lane for this reason. Someone has to waveclear the wave so that her skillshots wont be blocked by minions in teamfights. So many times it is blocked by them and it is quite stupid.

When you lose, lets say you lose 30, so in all, you need to play around 9 games in order to possibly rank up. This is also assuming you are playing the best OP soloq champ at the moment that can carry the game. Playing champs like Ahri who is just horrible right now will most likely make you lose more than 2 games, even if you are better than everyone else. So, when playing any other champ who is not that great, id say will win perhaps 4 out of 7 games.

Her kit felt a lot better that time when she was weaker than now. Though, current Ahri is probably the worst Ahri in a LONG time.

Having flamers contribute more than 40% of a team's atmosphere is enough to deny many players from climbing. The chance that flamer is on the enemy team is 20% higher than the chance they're on your team in any given game. It doesn't require a ton of time - you can climb a division in 5-6 games (so 2-3 days) if you really deserve it, playing 2 games per day. At **worst** case scenario of it taking a week to climb a division, you would still have time to climb from Iron IV to Master or higher by the end of the ranked season (with time to spare).

At **worst** case scenario of it taking a week to climb a division, you would still have time to climb from Iron IV to Master or higher by the end of the ranked season (with time to spare). To climb a division, lets say 20 lp per win, then you need to win 7 games in a row to go up a division. This is assuming you win everything. Then lets add in the possibility of going up, assuming you are better than others, then you have the chance to win around 5 games out of 7. When you lose, lets say you lose 30, so in all, you need to play around 9 games in order to possibly rank up. This is also assuming you are playing the best OP soloq champ at the moment that can carry the game. Playing champs like Ahri who is just horrible right now will most likely make you lose more than 2 games, even if you are better than everyone else. So, when playing any other champ who is not that great, id say will win perhaps 4 out of 7 games. So, you will lose around 45 lp, and only gain around 80 for wins, so it will go up to about 10 games in which you can maybe climb up. Every game takes around 30min to do, so lets say you have an hr to play every day, so in total, it will need around 3 days to possibly rank up to next division. So, I guess, you will eventually climb if you have a good team, and play op champs. But you should be able to climb higher and have a 100% winning streak if you are better than your elo players.
: Ok but can we please for the love of god stop asking for nerfs? Strong champσ are merely pointers to the poor way in which riot is handling their more obsolete champs. Ezreal's playstyle is always going to make him good. You either nerf his numbers to the point he is trash and depressing to play, or you remove his strong mechanics and turn him into every other worse ADC. Just find new ways for worse champs to compete with the better ones and tweak their power budget accordingly.

Just find new ways for worse champs to compete with the better ones and tweak their power budget accordingly. But then, Riot will almost never buff some champs. Ahri for example is nerfed anytime she is somewhat viable. Right now she is utter trash, but champs like Zoe and Ekko is going to get buffed over Ahri while they are much better than her.

: It doesn't prevent players from climbing. Period. There's 5 enemy players, and 4 teammates. This means that if you are higher skill than your current MMR, you will climb, period.

If one person flames, then you lose more than 40% of your team, not just 20% due to negative atmosphere that person brings. Not sure how that does not impact your winning spree.

So the fact a low range mage can do that is not surprising at all. Also Vladimir burst is delayed a lot, he has to stack his Q, he has a delay on his E, and he has a delay on his ult if this is bursty I'd like to get your opinion lux, veigar, oriana or any other burst mage.

But Vlad is an extremely safe champ is tremendous amount of AOE and sustain, while also being a tank. He can easily stack his Q beforehand, and he can charge his E while in his pool. Lux, Veigar, Orianna, and other burst mages are bursty, but when they are caught, they are dead. When Vlad is caught, he will almost always be alive and be able to escape easily.
