: FWIW, TWT isn't the best rune on Urgot in that row anyway. He has a noticeably higher winrate with Approach Velocity than TWT. It's just the FotM bandwagon. Also, if you did nerf TWT, literally no one would take it ever. Honestly, I still prefer sorcery (comet) + resolve secondary to Inspiration + resolve for most of Urgot's match ups.
> Also, if you did nerf TWT, literally no one would take it ever. Overpowered things should be nerfed. If no one would pick it, then that's fine since it's better to have it not exist than break the game.

Great but lower win rates does not help what people complain about. They complain because they think the champ is OP and -3AD or -5MS isn&#x27;t going to change that fact because all that does is affect their win rate. OP(Overpowered) has direct correlation to Winrate. When the Winrate drops so does the power of said champion. People will still complain about said champion because they might just not like the champions kit or something but that does not mean the champion is still in an overpowered state.
yeah but that also correlates to pickrate, so winrate can be stable if pickrate drops.

: Quick question! "This thread has been pinned," what exactly does that mean?
It means his comment appears at the top of the comment section, regardless of votes.
: You said ignite sucks and i responded with no it doesnt, what did i not answer?
because I said it sucked before the buffs. You stated a number. You didn't provide information showing it did not suck before buffs.
: Riiiiiiiiight. Totally not like each of those champions either a) has always been pretty bad or b) got severe nerfs that made them all shit, usually as a result of abusing Rageblade, which then after each champions's nerfs didn't fix the issue, was changed, leaving all those champs that now absolutely needed the item lying in the dirt. How many times is the item going to have to be changed and iterated on, constantly leaving champs nerfed into the ground, before it's realized that it's an unhealthy and unworkable item? And no, I'm not talking about Phantom Hit. As you said yourself, it was never an actual problem. It's the stacking stats mechanic. Ever since that was added, the item has caused issue after issue after issue. The item is an inherent snowball in itself. You start gaining stats from attacking with it, which also grants attack speed so you gain the stats faster, which makes you harder to fight against. Then, whenever you have some champion that has auto resets in their kit, like old Aatrox, then suddenly you have a ton of burst from an item that is **SUPPOSED** to be entirely DPS focused. Remove the stacking stats, hell, even just the AD and AP, leaving the AS, and you suddenly have a Kai'Sa that has to choose between what she wants to do, instead of having an item that allows her to do it all with any build.
Yi has always been shit. Jax and Kayle haven't been changed. Kog'maw is the only one been nerfed.

: All of the above were problematic either with rageblade or its predecessors, feral flare and sated devourer.

The only reason these champions are not problems now are one of, rework, they're bellow A tier or there's a more optimal build path. Champions were nerfed, the items were crushed or replaced. And despite having an item dedicated to them, a majority of hybrid champs suck. Because they have to
you mean: Devourer never being competitively viable? or you mean Rageblade AND Devourer existing at once?
: That's a problem with Rageblade, not Kai'Sa. It's been the bigger issue with her basically the whole time. When she first released, she needed a couple buffs, namely the range increase. 500 was just way too short to do anything. However, at the same time they buffed her individually, they changed Rageblade (again. How many versions is that now?), and since then it's been a core item to her kit. The item just allows her to build whatever and function through all her capacities. AP is supposed to be an intended build for her, however it's not supposed to be as strong a (or stronger!) DPS build than AD. Rageblade corrupts all that, by allowing her to build AP and use it as both her burst and DPS build.

: Ignite was totally fine for years. No reason to buff or nerf it. Was always a staple summoner spell in this game.
how? no one used it. Mid took tele instead.
: You think that a SUMMONER SPELL doing 205 true damage at level 6 is ok?
> Ignite sucked before the buffs. You didn't respond to the argument.
: A summoner spell should not have higher impact than a champions actual kit. Which ignite currently does for most champions.
> Ignite sucked before the buffs. You didn't respond to the argument.
: It didnt even need buffs in the first place, so i dont think it should get compensation if it's reverted. However, i'd be fine with this if ignite got a small damage nerf as well (in addition to the revert.)

: {{champion:145}} Take away 25 aa range and make her spell-upgrades need more stats (so she scales slower) She gets through laning phase too easily for how hard she scales. {{champion:104}} Just works so well with the current items/runes, easiest way to adress him is to brute force him down to a normal level by damage decreases. Maybe look at the knockback range on his autos on monsters so he gets hit more by them and leaves the jungle with less HP, or remove knockback on scuddle so he can't clear it that fast. So either hit his clear speed or his clear safety or just braindead damage nerfs to whatever. {{champion:39}} Reduce aa range to 175, remove cc buffering from her W, increase reactivation time on Q to slow her down (only early levels, same in late game), remove shield busting mechanic, remove disarm compensate her with base HP, HP/lvl scaling, AD/lvl and strengthen the slow on her R to compensate for disarm removal Powershift, take away power from early game and put it into late. Make her have a clear powercurve and trim down the fat in the kit, remove tools to add counters to her playstyle. Make it so you can retaliate on a Irelia that ulted on you but still get punished for crossing the wall {{champion:266}} Hard to say, passive deals shit ton of damage, I would remove mutilation debuff from it and reduce damage but let it heal Aatrox for a % of the damage dealt by the passive. Less burst on the enemy but still dominant in the early game. This reduces Aatrox's all in potential but I think the true problem is his Q (well his only ability that does anything relevant). The thing is that this ability is balanced around the idea that you don't need to hit every Q for you to go even in a trade (or even win it). That leads to a situation where IF he hits every Q, you are going to lose 60% of your HP bar. More or less losing the entire laning phase because of that. Making the abilitiy easier to land but reducing the damage should make it easier to deal with in a general sense. Generally aim to a state where you aren't getting punished so hard for making mistakes against Aatrox but let Aatrox still be rewarded for executing his kit properly (mainly through lane sustain) {{champion:6}} The thing I see with Urgot is that he deides what happens in the laning phase. Thanks to spellbook and his cc buffer he can decide what to do, if he just wants to farm you are just going to farm since catching him wont be easy and just engaging in his minion wave will make it so you will lose the trade thanks to his W. If he wants to fight he can whittle you down with Q (since it's so easy to hit) and zone you out eventually (still you are unable to engage). He dictates the pacing of the laning phase and what is being done too well. There are 2 ways to fix this, either you nerf his anti-engage tools or nerf his Q reliability. Maybe even removing his cc buffer might be an idea but that would be a hefty nerf. {{champion:84}} Get rid of true stealth, remove the micro stun on her R1 and remove healing from her AOE then get rid of true stealth and make it so her E doesn't have global range but around 1.5x lee Q2. Make it so the smoke just goes into terrain instead of building around it (less places where she can be) and get rid of true stealth. Compensate her with base HP and base armor. There is just simply too much stuff in her kit that ends up overloading her and reducing counters to her playstyle (happens quite often with CT champs honestly). Trim the fat in her abilities and just compensate with base stats to make it so she has a harder time against her counters but an easier time against favorible matchups. Kind of like Kassadin, try to make Akali more like Kassadin when it comes to laning phase. By the way you forgot to mention {{champion:164}} {{champion:236}} {{champion:555}} {{champion:14}} Also {{item:3095}} {{item:3147}}
> make her spell-upgrades need more stats (so she scales slower) making a champion feel shit doesn't solve it. How about make her upgrades (Q) not broken?
Bârd (NA)
: {{champion:10}} doesn't have much innate damage for rageblade to multiply. {{champion:17}} has even less than Kayle. Please don't build Rageblade on Teemo, it's honestly terrible. {{champion:11}} even though he's great with Phantom Hit, rageblade itself provides subpar stats for him and is a massive detour. Plus, even though he gets tons of damage from it, he's still vulnerable as all hell. {{champion:96}} has incredible synergy with the item, but because of champions like Camille, Aatrox, and Irelia being strong and champions like Lulu being weak, he just gets dove on immediately. If we were in a different meta, it would absolutely break him.
Kayle has 60 plus 30% AP (plus 15% from Nashors and 5% from ragebalde) magic damage with Rageblade. It's a lot.
: Share your OWN thoughts on how you'd nerf Kai'Sa, Graves, Irelia, Aatrox, Urgot & Akali
Nerf Kai'sa Q upgrade bullet numbers, and maybe a small ratio decrease. Nerf Stormrazor. Graves? He seems fine with his recent nerfs, but I could be wrong. Not sure what to hit. Irelia? Q damage and resetability (Making E and R not reset it, because of chain Q procs into 1-shot). W's damage reduction should scale with champion level. Aatrox? Less base damage on Q, higher AD ratio. Urgot? Timewarp tonic nerf. Akali? I have no clue since I don't see her played.
: Buff their counters, leave them as is, repeat until everyone is A-to-S-tier.
that's what we call powercreep it's not a good thing since it's harder to balance typically
: "dont balance the game around the 0.00001% please" and yeah kass is utter bs xd
No, please balance around the best 0.01% in the noble pursuit of making a balanced game. and yes, Kass is broke.

I've seen Jax's outtrade early game champions like Renekton at level 3. I take Conqueror on Renekton vs Conqueror Jax and he wins the trades all because his bullshit E blocks my stun, while Q'ing at the same time and auto attacking me while E is up so I can't retaliate back with anything because E also has Aoe reduction 25% all ranks.
