: If it makes their precious assassins irrelevant, they CAN and WILL remove it It's why Lulu was forced to support, Sion was forced to top, mages were forced out of bot, etc
Lulu isn't allowed to solo lane because she's absolute cancer to lane against when she can. She makes about 90% of the champs she lanes against useless just by existing in the solo lane.
: About Akali's Shroud CD from PBE to Live
When they lowered the cooldown to 20 seconds they also reverted it to starting after the ability ended. It just wasn't mentioned in the PBE patch notes. So it's not a bug.

And now her highest damage spell is a unreliable skillshot. TF isn't picked in pro play. The only champions that are somewhat common picks in competitive that has the ability to reveal her are Lee Sin and Kai'Sa. All the other underlying mechanics are still there aside from Obscurity meaning not much will change in competitive. Her Q AP ratio is now 80%, and she has better scaling on her E, while her ult is up less often. Because of how low her Q is (it's 1.5 seconds between casts), two Qs will deal more damage than her entire E going by the changes. Assuming Akali is level 18 and has nothing but Hextech Gunblade (to make things easier), two Qs will deal 536 magic damage, whereas both casts of her E will deal 510 physical damage. The same is true even if Akali is full build (even more so because she builds magic pen and doesn't build Lethality).
It's being changed to 60% not 80%. You get 8 extra damage on Q after completing Gunblade

: Out of the 3 reworks (Irelia, Akali, Aatrox)...
Akali and Aatrox are tied for first probably. I'd barely give it to Aatrox for most broken over Akali.
: Goodbye cancer ranged top picks
Ranged top laners are never truly gone from top lane
: Although I am 100% against the idea of a rework (plenty of other changes seem more.. worthwhile for lack of a better word?), I will agree that Riot Is honestly going about her the wrong way, but their overall goal of getting her out of top tier pro play was reached. Iā€™m not sure if old kit - new visuals is hard or easy, but I guess anything beats the extreme of broken or unplayable.

She's still picked and banned in pro play just not permad. She may fall out of favor next patch because of the nerfs.

None of the posts here are constructive.
: She was toxic before the rework, and toxic after it She needs an actual rework, nothing of her old kit should be saved

She'll probably become broken in a few weeks
: Your Cerebral Cortex doesn't fully develop until you are roughly 25 years old
: Invisibility's only counter is true vision. True invisibility's counter was nothing. Why shouldn't TF have an ult against her just because she used a basic ability?
The problem is that the reworked version of Akali is 100% reliant on her shroud. Without it she is basically useless especially in teamfights. Old Akali could function perfectly fine if she was revealed in her shroud, but new Akali can't. Her burst isn't high enough and having to walk away from your target because of the stupid circle passive makes her kill window extremely high. The new shroud is just horribly designed to begin with and centering the whole rework around her only defensive ability leads to complete failures like this.
: post a song appropriate for jungling
: Nothing feels worse than loving a champion who isn't on Riot's favorite list
It can also suck on the other end of the spectrum, when they won't leave your champion alone for more than 2 patches. Everytime they keep changing/removing mechanics, nerfing them, making them overpowered again, ruining them, etc. I would argue it can be better to not have changes often because if you love your champion you shouldn't care what their power level is. Old Akali was awesome because Akali players could make her work and enjoyed her and she only got touched once or twice a season.
: So I agree with the Aatrox nerf

Grasp lets him have infinite sustain. He doesn't have any mana costs so he also gets that infinite sustain forever.

If you mean like fighting straight away at level 1 I would put {{champion:24}} Counterstrike + the attack speed from passive is super strong

: Lee sin voice change do to Vic Mignogna?
I feel bad for the guy. If he's actually guilty of the sexual harassment stuff, then he definitely deserves this, but doing it all right away before there's even adequate proof is super lame. He's already been removed from Rooster Teeth and Funimation and now his voice is being replaced for League. Unfortunate that if you are accused of something these days everyone just assumes you are guilty.
