: The fact that there is a locked in meta for botlane is the problem.
The issue I see here is that most marksmen (ignoring kaisa, lucian, vayne etc) can't thrive alone. Their power requires them to be squishy as not to be overpowered but as a result they basically are always going to need a support. The reason why Kaisa, Lucian, Vayne and the like can solo-lane sometimes is because they have mobility and self-peel. If you get ganked by their jungler as a Jinx in a solo lane, you're boned, especially if they're remotely sticky, because your traps are your only peel and your flash is your only escape. I'm all for diversifying bot lane, but please have a plan for marksmen in place first

As a Jhin main I'm half okay with him finally being viable for the first time in almost a year (was sitting at second lowest winrate for god knows how long) As a Jhin main I'm NOT okay with the nerfs that are definitely coming, followed by nerfing Stormrazor then forgetting about Jhin nerfs, putting him right back at the bottom where he belongs :)

What do you think about them increasing his AD ratios (I dont play urgot so I don't know how his ratios are now) and adding some bruiser AD items designed for a marksman? the lower damage would probably incentive away from an ADC building them, but be ok with him IDK just some thoughts

This is possible but I more think that the Darkin are like the reverse of the Aspects.

In this I mean they are both similar in strength and power and composed of the same essence but with opposing alignments.

: So you'd also like to see a bunch of champs removed from the game. Nasus, Veigar, Kindred, etc... All those champs are usually varying from non-existent to minor influence till 35-40+ minutes into the game. Right now it's too focused on snowballing and high burst damage for the meta.

The problem isn't champs that aren't nuking squishies in 1 second, it's the other way around. I don't know the last time I had a game go much longer than 40 minutes. I'm not saying I want all games to go that long, but it would be nice to see variety, and the current meta discourages it. I only play normals because I don't like being forced to play certain champs. I'd play flex if I felt I could still have some fun in it, but not picking the top tier champs is nearly report-worthy right now. Because it's either snowball or get steamrolled meta right now. I don't find that fun. I occasionally like playing assassins, But I shouldn't be rewarded a kill for barely trying. Which is what most of the whiners on the forums lately want.

No, I think Garen can hit like 95% tenacity for a split second or something. However the thing is that additional sources of tenacity suffer from diminishing returns. In the same way that armor/mr can never give you 100% damage reduction (you'd need an infinite amount of either to achieve that) you can't achieve 100% tenacity because each successive source only applies to the remaining cc duration. So if you have merc treads and elixir ( i think elixir is 30% and merc is 35%) then the cc duration gets cut to 65% by merc treads then to .65-.3*.35 = .495 Pretty sure thats how it works anyway, or something very similar to that.
: IE should never be a first item on any champion, period. Not even Tryn is a good IE user first item, because it is only efficient on him when he is over 70% rage or so, and he will struggle to build up his rage with base AS and no crit other than his passive. He wants at least another completed AS item like BorK first, then probably the Zeal item, then IE. You should always have a completed Zeal item before completing IE. You can build double BF if you want to just fine, just do NOT build IE until you have at least 25% crit to back it up to make it gold efficient to complete. Finally, IE's value flat out scales up with the global level/armor of the enemy team so that it's crit true damage actually is being used to even penetrate armor. It's at it's lowest raw value early game, and it's highest endgame.

It's at it's lowest raw value early game, and it's highest endgame. On Tryndamere however it's at least usable as a first item. Optimal? Maybe? I'm not a Trynd player. But usable, since he has innate crit chance. ADCS who rush IE are fucked because it doesn't provide crit chance now, only double crit chance from other sources. and the bonus true damage only comes from critical strikes. Without built in crit or another crit item, you're spending all that gold on 80 AD

The game needs to slow down a bit, funnily enough. Which means damage needs to be trimmed back across the board. IMO, the amount of time it takes for a game doesn't need to slow down. I'll happily take 25-35 minute games over 45-55 minute games. The problem is game pacing.

: Nasus probably needs another buff to his kit. But yes his ultimate has been buffed multiple times, but all it does is initially even out his win rate and then it dips again as the season progresses. He is so easily kited that he needs the defensive steroids. Seriously, Nasus can build full tank, have a defensive steroid, do a % shred on his E, and has lower cooldown on his Q and yet...he still sucks at team fighting and his win rate is always modest to low. He feels really bad this season since the end of preseason and the indirect nerfs he had from rune changes.

Rioter Comments
: League is no longer fun.
One of the issues with tanks doing damage is that they need to do damage to be relevant otherwise they're impotent. I agree they do way too much, but I also wish Riot would explore other avenues of making tanks relevant besides giving them obscene damage. For example, Rammus, he does a fair bit of damage right now but his taunt is a really good way for a good Rammus to be relevant in fights but not be #1 on the team in damage.
