: Nidalee Players Want Riot To Step Up And Fix The Mess Riot Created.
Wow this is blowing up, it is clear that there is something wrong with current Nidalee and it's good to see people are talking about it! I really like the suggestion of removing her attack speed from her heal and her attack fast for a set number of attacks. I also like the idea of removing cougar damage amplification if we do not nerf the really long pounce. I would like to thank everybody who has posted something constructive and not some nonsense like "change Nidalee and I will uninstall". Those sort of people need to get a grip. If you think Nidalee is fine please list out why instead of being a (REMOVED BY MODERATION) .

The main problem with current Nidalee is a 700 range pounce that locks you onto the hunted target, and Nidalee has too much damage loaded into executing targets. This means when Nidalee gets ahead, she can't be stopped. She jumps across and 1 shots anybody who gets the hunt on them which isn't fair to the enemy nor fun for the Nidalee player. Nidalee would be more fun to play against and to play if you had to land multiple spears instead of 1 spear/trap and then flying into them.

Easy; get bought. Then the assumption is that everything bad you do is on orders from above....
Unfortunately that seems to be what most people say.. Tencent's fault but let's be real, Riot does have control of the gameplay.. Tencent is the one pushing for the chinese splash arts, KDA/Prestige skins, passes, and cash cows.

I think the hunt passive pounce is Nidalee's main problem, how do you get away from a champion that can fly? Dodge the spear, the trap? It would be better if you had to dodge multiple spears. When she gets ahead she can't stop killing people with the no skill jump.

I've hardly ever have touched the champion, but playing against it way back when was incredibly annoying. That being said, that was mostly due to spears being invisible and the projectile being a bit faster I think. Also Nidalee's pounce movement was kind of ridiculous at points. Maybe it's just the old player in me, but it feels wrong to just remove a champion from their original lane altogether. Despite how massive reworks tend to be nowadays, usually champions are able to be played in the lane and role they typically used to be in. Even Aatrox, a champion that was more akin to Yasuo or Fiora in playstyle in his previous iteration still finds a home top lane, despite his playstyle being much more like Riven's. With the release of Zoe, it stands to reason that there should be a way to bring Nidalee back into mid lane without making her too unhealthy to play against. I believe the post here mentions that at one point, Nidalee had 50% winrates in top, mid, and jungle post rework, meaning that at the very least, Nidalee was playable in her intended role. However, it seems like she was shoved into the jungle similarly like Graves and Taliyah, isolating avid Nidalee players. Since we're pretty much on the revert train with champions like Leblanc, Rengar, and even the upcoming Zac ult revert, it stands to reason that perhaps Riot could move power around in her "power budget" to allow her to lane again. That being said, a full-on revert is not to be expected, nor is what some of these older players want. I don't think anybody wants to really isolate other players and remove Nidalee from the jungle entirely. I think most people would be fine with having Nidalee even being strongest in the jungle, so long as she is playable in lane. As of current, I think that's incredibly difficult to do, seeing as a lot of the tools she had to survive lane were heavily nerfed due to abuse in the jungle, if I'm not mistaken. All that being said, I'm by no means a Nidalee player and I wouldn't be surprised if I got something wrong here or there. It just kind of bums me out sometimes that Riot sometimes alienates portions of their player base with their changes.
