Kog'Maw could build those and still do damage. You realize AP feeds into his W's % damage ratio, E ratio and into his R?
do you know what the AP ratio on W is? It's literally 1% / 100AP. Suppose you end the game with 300 AP, you're only netting 3% on top of the given 8%. On an individual that has 2000HP (without incorporating MR), the change in damage is 60/auto. It's really not that much when you incorporate how little AS you'd get from the build and when the enemy has MR. His E and R ratios are laughable especially after they nerfed E ratio

champions that build crit typically have crit interactions in their kit or benefit from AD more
: 5 AS Kog with old {{item:3504}} wasn't nightmare enough?

: If you really need the GW, would Morellonomicon be an option on Kog'Maw? I know the stats on it aren't ideal but they wouldn't be wasted either.
it would be wasted because I'm already doing magic damage with W. What I need is armor penetration + GW

oh yeah waste an item slot sounds like a great idea

: Oh you mean that excuse of an Ahri Clone? What do the lines on her face even represent?
honestly D.va from a far superior game is the better of the three
: No, they can just break it early and not be stuck in it until the invisibility wears off. And even if you took away the invisibility, guess what? She'd just be running around like a dumbass, outputting no damage and being a fucking target.
Just like every other ADC that isn't overtuned for skin sales

she's locked out of attack animation because it would be incredibly OP for a ranged champion to go invis instantaneously. Vayne goes invisible during her tumble animation which is her version of being disarmed. During that animation she cannot auto attack and is invisible. The supercharge doesn't take that long when it is ultimately upgraded

Say that again, slowly. Youre here complaining about kai sa being more mobile than kog but acknowledge the fact she does less damage. Of course its harder playing kog in this burst and mobility meta but there's a clear trade off, if you have good frontline and an enchanter support kog outperforms kai sa. Honestly It might be an unpopular opinion but I dont think kai sa is that safe as people make her out to be,even with the invis and shield. Just compare her to some other adcs, vayne, invis + mobility on 1.5 sec cd + knockback and stun, lucian e cd was hard nerfed but he can still kite hard + his ult that usually makes people stop chasing, tristana, long ass jump that resets + peel on ult, xayah, r+e is guaranteed escape, ezreal flash every 3 sec and so on. Comparatively when I play kai sa if I get caught and cant escape with my e, my r rarely saves me, unless maybe in a 1v1
I understand that she trades off damage for other attributes but if said attributes save her from dying then she can contribute more damage. On the other hand when Kog'Maw pumps out damage and gets caught then it's over. He cannot dash away or go invisible temporarily to reposition himself, there is nothing he can do which is why people don't pick him. I love that people are bringing up Vayne's versatility as if I'm saying that Vayne is okay the way she is currently. If Kai'sa is removed from the equation, people will go towards Vayne.
: Ive been saying since her release that shes just overtuned. Her kit is crazy in how much she has in it and if you dont punish her into the ground super duper early, she becomes a problem due to her on hit magic damage scaling %missing health bs that she has. Not to mention this whole tear build. They nerf ezreal or nerf iceborn with items hes getting but kaisa has this tear and its not a problem Im just tired of the favoritism in this game
I'm not saying she's like S5 Kog'Maw but she's really similar. She certainly doesn't shred a team as fast with a fully stacked Guinsoo's BUT the lack of damage is replaced with mobility, invisibility, and a fat shield.

being stunned and not being able to attack is two different things. idk how you can be level 307 and be this ignorant about champions and the game lmaoo

because its a charge and not even that long of a charge. it starts off at 1.2s and scales down to 0.6s, do you know how short of time that is? not to mention that auto attacks reduce the ability like what the fuck?
: no one can deal damage while being invisible
I should reiterate that no one can auto attack while being invisible.

no, they reveal from invis when they attack. can you imagine how furious everyone would be if they died to someone's attacks and not know where it came from?
Syte (NA)
: RYZE E TRAVEL SPEED
additionally, i hope input buffering can be properly implemented. it partially has to do with this but sometimes when ryze W or E someone that he briefly loses sight he stops moving and puts in the next command (which is usually Q). so instead of EQ it becomes just Q or EWQ it becomes just Q. not sure how this can be solved just make his abilities skill shots and bring back desperate power
Xphineas (NA)
: Oh yeah, for sure, I agree. If you cast the E first, it should hit first. I hate ryze as much as the next guy, but when something isnt fair I call it out.
> I hate ryze as much as the next guy you literally play fiora and irelia so idk how you can say this
: I mean. She can’t deal damage during this time, and she has to already have a large amount of attackspeed. So she needs 3 items to even get the upgrade in the first place.
no one can deal damage while being invisible
Snowbrand (EUW)
: Do you think Vayne should not have invincibility either because she can repositioning with her q?
I've always been a proponent for removing the stupid buff to her Q that makes her almost perma invisible late game during her R
: she can't autoattack while using that ability though. like lol i remember when she was being pbe'd and people were thinking rito were dumb for making her unable to AA while using her supercharge. but whatever the community knows how the game works ofc.
can anyone auto attack while being invisible? no
: Nonono kaisa players should be able to e and walk up to melee range next to you and immediately w q you for half your health bar without even using her ult yet.
yeah don't get me started on her ult being able to fat shield at every rank
KazKaz (OCE)
: The Kai'sa nerf is a joke
remove her invis and let her players adapt. that's what they did to Ryze and Kog'Maw without warning or hesitation
EATARI (NA)
: The only champs who require mana management(one could even call it **mana**gement) are Kassadin and Kog’Maw. That’s just due to the exponential scaling on their ults, which I’d be interested in seeing on other new champs.

Jamaree (NA)
: It’s also good on Illaoi, just throwing that out there.
wouldn't death's dance benefit Illaoi better?
: So remove Death's Dance too, right? While we're at it, can we remove Bork since it only benefits champs with AS steroids or their own %HP damage? Why not remove all items and balance champions individually like in HoTS? You might have had an argument back when Akali had her own in-kit healing, but now her healing is gated behind completing that item. Which is an even better solution than gating it behind a level requirement, since you can keep someone from getting gold longer than you can keep them from getting exp. Will was removed because it wasn't taken on anyone besides champions who abused it alongside their own in-kit healing. Those champions were adjusted specifically because it was removed during the same update. If anything, you could argue that it needs its price drastically increased since it is way too gold efficient compared to every single other first item.
I personally think that assassin's shouldn't be able to build healing items much less powerful AoE healing items. If they reduced or removed healing from HGB then I'd be completely fine with it. But what I'm not fine with is Katarina/Akali slowing me, jumping onto me while I fight back and them drain tanking all of my damage with that item. Old katarina relied solely on burst from Luden's echo but the current iteration gets an unnecessarily powerful slow and spell vamp. Just with that item she can all in anyone with minimal magic resist. Take heal? Grievous wounds is now 60% on her R. Barrier? lol. Exhaust? LOL. Katarina has just become a joke. I think that Akali with the item is fine especially with all the changes she's had recently. I was hesitant to include her but I'm afraid when she's buffed again that the item will be overwhelming to combat. What am I supposed to do to counter HGB or DD? Build Morellonomicon? I can do one of two things: 1) I can build my first item while they build theirs and get pounded into the ground and they run rampant healing out the ass until I finally get Morellonomicon but by then it's too late and they have other means of dominating me (Zhonyas or even more burst) OR I can build Morello first, mitigate their healing but then I cripple myself by not building my first item.

Like the rageblade nerf and changes and the cost increase on Bork.
and those nerfs were due to other adcs being dominant (kai'sa and lucian), so their presence dropped a little but their builds are extremely flexible compared to kog's
: I’d love kog to be playable again. Burst meta has really fucked him hard.

: Are you sure it stacks additively? That would go against Riot's history of handling how % values and their interactions work in the past. Usually its either multiplicative or only the greatest value applies.
you're right. if she doesn't have R then she can ignite or use an ability with morello to get 40%. if she does have R then she gets 60%. what I don't understand is that katarina isn't that bad in team fights. sure she can't win in a full out 5v5 but she's an assassin, her team fight should be asinine
: this is what ya'll get for thinking you can run HEAL in mid lane. HA HOW DARE YOU!
she already runs ignite so she gets GW pre 6 and now post 6 my healing is negligible while she heals from hextech gunblade

: Riot, please consider reverting the Riven changes of patch 9.10 and nerfing her in simpler way.
at max CD riven Q cd is 3sec. who think that is okay for an ability that CCs, provides mobility and damage
Rioter Comments
: How is Evelyn and Riven not being nerfed
They need to reduce the amount she heals when she is invisible. I can't count how many times I've evaded an Evelyn gank and reduced her health to 75% only for her to go invisible and heal up again.
: It's bad to compare a champ to themselves in Aram but holy shit Irelia is awful to go against in Aram with conqueror. I've yet to see one go poorly. Just buys Trinity then tank items and out damages everyone.
She plays like a fucking pinball machine bouncing off everyone. It's literally impossible to click on her since there isn't a gap between each Q

Literally nothing clears the wave, so now I can't fight unless I'm playing something that likes being alone with ryze and his minions.
you do realize that before seraphs that clearing the minion wave isn't accessible with just one EQ? Am I supposed to just surrender the wave to Irelia and pick up the scraps?

every shaco i've played with/against either refuses to build their jungle item or simply "doesn't" have to, maybe instead of asking for buffs just build your jungle item and you'll be able to perform better
