: His E needs changed, his W could use work. I love his W, don't get me wrong, but it doesn't really fit in today's game. Maybe a self stat increase that heals based on how much damage he has recently taken? Idk if that would fit him better or not, but it would fit the game better. The only thing I don't like about his ult is that it is easily cancelled by champions that have a CC on their autoattacks, like Udyr, Braum, or Blitzcrank. Other than that it is great, and powerful to the point that it is difficult to make a skill set with an appropriate power budget. His passive should probably change too. Right now it is "build mr get ap" but that is not very engaging, and honestly giving some of his skills scalings with mr would achieve the same effect. My change would probably be like this: Passive: Galio occasionally ignores the next CC put on him. The CD is high but lowered when damaged or something. Q: Basically the same W: Gives you defensive stats and heals/shields based on damage recently taken E: Some kind of delayed jump? that creates wind in his wake that gives allies a speed boost R: Same as now but refreshes his passive Would probably be way too strong, but it fixes his current issues. I think for him to be a truly balanced champion his ult will have to change considerably. Much like how Poppy's ult had to change for her to have a balanced kit.

I think for him to be a truly balanced champion his ult will have to change considerably. Much like how Poppy's ult had to change for her to have a balanced kit. While I agree with most of what you stated, I think his passive should remain the same or be altered so that it has two parts. His passive is such an important part of his identity as an antimage. He is currently the only champion other than Kassadin that counters magic damage. I don't understand what changes you wanted for W because it already gives increased armor and magic resist along with the ability to heal when attacked. This skill is such an essential part of Galio's flexibility when it comes to his role in the team. W not only gives extra sustain and tankiness but also gives extra damage because the increase in magic resist also increases his ability power as a result of its interaction with his passive. Conclusively, I agree with you on the things that may be changed to actually improve him. But the reason I am unhappy is because Riot clearly stated that he needs a complete makeover. He really doesn't.

: Galio is super OP excuse you. The whole "his mana costs are insane" argument is really weak when you compare him to other Mages.

The whole "his mana costs are insane" argument is really weak when you compare him to other Mages. Yes the mana cost argument is somewhat invalid, but I don't think that is the issue. Galio's kit has a niche that is so unique and different from other champions that come mid. That's partially the reason I build a bit more tank and go top with him. Teams tend to prefer having straight up dmg champs in the mid lane like {{champion:238}} {{champion:157}} {{champion:91}} {{champion:134}} {{champion:112}} {{champion:268}} . And Galio certainly isn't better than any of these champions if he builds full AP.

: He's like the old yorick, sleeper op but super low play rates since they're no fun...like at all, riot has said they want to give him new abilities that fit with his theme of being a badass gargoyle thing. His abilities are also very lacking compared to the abilities you see on newer champs So he's op, but not fun, and doesn't look cool either so riot will be reworking him

His abilities are also very lacking compared to the abilities you see on newer champs > > So he's op, but not fun, and doesn't look cool either so riot will be reworking him The old yorick was not even close to a sleeper OP. He had no mobility or cc (unless you count his w and q that each had a tiny slow and a tiny movement speed boost). He only had good sustain and lane pressure. He even lost that lane dominance after hitting six. In teamfights, the ult was his only good thing. He couldn't initiate fights like maokai or nautilus. He couldn't jump in, do a ton of dmg, and come back out like riven, fiora, or irelia. He also had to build muramana because of his quick mana loss. Then he had to build tank because if he built ad, he would just get kited. As a tank, he stull got outclassed by other tanks who could just passively farm in lane and dominate team fights. On the contrary, Galio's kit is far stronger depending on the comp. His passive is obviously very strong if the enemy has a lot of magic dmg. His q, e, and r don't have a great AP scale, but they can all do dmg to multiple enemies (coupled with the extra AP from the passive). W makes him extremely tanky even if he builds just Spirit visage, abyssal sceptor, and then all AP. His q and e also have a very long range. E also grants some moving speed for not just him but for his team. His w tanking covers up for his lack of utility. His ult is extremely powerful if the enemy team lacks enough tools to stop the channeling. Galio is certainly weak against all ad teams or champions that are very mobile. His passive is meant to counter AP comps, and it is difficult to hit the qs and es against mobile champs like yasuo, fiora, zed, and katarina. While his kit shines only in certain comps and situations, I would say he is far superior to the old Yorick. I still don't think Galio is OP, just quite good in certain situations.

: Some people actually enjoy simple kits...
Spot on! I really dislike how all of the recent champions and remakes involve complexity, which is not always necessarily good. {{champion:427}} {{champion:136}} {{champion:245}} {{champion:202}} {{champion:163}} {{champion:240}} {{champion:420}} {{champion:83}} {{champion:13}} {{champion:44}}

: Major Regions and Worlds seeds
If we were to be completely objective on the level of plays in the different regions, Korea should be sending at least 5 teams considereing how even their third seed SSG dominated group stages 5-1 against top teams from other regions. And of course, they dominated in the Worlds for the past three years. But if we actually did that, it wouldn't really be "Worlds" any more. The audience from all around the world would not appreciate watching the second version of LCK.
: The Fact riot KEEPS saving the Asian team match ups for AFTER they've crushed all the western teams (particularly so making sure that the Korean teams do not fight each other in knock out stages and force an undesirable match up for SKT/SSG for the finals, ensuring one of the teams that put a lot of funds in riots pocket takes worlds), shows some really suspicious behavior, our only hope is for Russian hyper teams to start making the stage, or hopefully one of the wild card regions to come in and sweep finals.

No teams from the same region are supposed to fight in the group stages. You distribute the first, second, and third seed teams from each region to different groups so that higher seeds from one region can fight lower seeds from other regions. ROX and SSG got first in their groups stages despite being second and third seeds beating first and second seeds from other regions. And because they got first in their group stages, they could not meet in the quarterfinals. The quarterfinals put first places and second places together from different groups. This is NOT suspicious behavior. It's just how it works. It just shows that KR region completely dominates all other regions.
: The tiebreaker. Is it fair?
Well, that's how it works in most sports leagues. For instance, in Spain's soccer league Primera Liga, if Real Madrid and FC Barcelona have the same points, the team that's ahead in head-to-head performance is considered the higher in rank. And btw, if this was the other way around with TSM ahead in head-to-head performance, this wouldn't even be on the boards right now.
: We should have the "Old League" game mode
I do think that some of the reworks were rather successful. I still want to play them the way they were before sometimes.
: The only thing I need in my life is get to play Pre-Juggernaut {{champion:82}} again

: While I'd love to enjoy AP Yi and DFGaren one more time, it's unlikely that they'll actually create a legacy server. Now if you're talking a legacy rotating game mode, that actually sounds like a good idea. Give some of the newbies a chance to experience some of the older memes firsthand. They'd have to make some kind of a decision on when they go back to, but I'm sure they could pick one of a couple arbitrary points, assuming they've still got all the old code/stats/kits available.

They'd have to make some kind of a decision on when they go back to, but I'm sure they could pick one of a couple arbitrary points, assuming they've still got all the old code/stats/kits available. Looking at what everybody has said so far, this does seem like the best and the easiest way. The question is whether the current client would be able to run the old versions of the game even with the codes/stats/kits.
: I think they should just use a season 1 patch for this (if possible) Old map, only the launch champs (make them all free, revert all reworks), bring back the old items, revert all patched numerical changes, etc. Let us take a trip down memory lane to when league was smaller, simpler. This is really only feasible if they have the older patches stored somewhere, the old map resources, etc. But it would be really cool.

I totally agree. Moving back to a specific patch would be the most sensible way to carry out this game mode.

: Which old Taric? Hasn't he had like 4 passives by this point? I also wonder how they'd handle other champs of that nature like Ryze.

Hasn't he had like 4 passives by this point? > > I also wonder how they'd handle other champs of that nature like Ryze. Well, that's what would have to be decided. The point is to bring back the old stuff. For instance, we could roll back all the changes that took place in the champions for a year (while keeping the new champions). We could do the same for items. It would probably be chaotic to bring back everything, so we probably would have to focus on certain elements.

I'm not saying change the game back to how it was before.
: So people can whine about not picking meta like they do already? Kidding.

Kidding. Well, that actually makes sense too. If such game mode was to be created, the playstyle would be very different from what we have in summoner's rift right now.
: >By no means am I saying that the old users are dissatisfied with the current state of the game or that the changes it went through were negative. I'm an old user and I think this. But yeah, a legacy mode would be pretty great.

Oh yes, I do see a lot of flaws in what Riot's been doing these days, but it's hard to deny that the game did improve.

I do agree that some of the things I mentioned won't be easy to do. I still think we could bring back certain elements.

When people look at these threads that promote membership in communities such as ours, they tend to perceive it as insignificant and hypocritical. I had the same exact thoughts when I was about to join AZG. I thought I would join just to see what it would be like and simply drop out if I didn't like it. Well, as you see, I am still in AZG, and I am having a great time. I can confidently say that AZG is the epitome of all stress-free, friendly communities. The major goal that all members of our community affiliate with is friendly, non-toxic gaming. And that acts as the strongest bond members could ever have. Literally everyone is welcome in our community as long as he or she endorses our goals. We have people from all tiers, levels, ages, and personal backgrounds. You may be a fervent ranked game player. Or you may be a crazy-build aficionado. Either way, the fact remains the same. You are welcome to join, so why not join? No matter how eloquent I try to be or how coherent my writing could ever be, I cannot give full insights of our beautiful community. What I can do is try my best to share the joy AZG carries with as many people as possible.
