That's not what I said lol.
Just saying and it is true. In the case of Katarina and Yi, they have very VERY subpar survability once they get stuck. A single stun means curtains for them and since they don't have the kits that allow them to build tanky in anyway, they have to do their damage incredibly quickly to actually be viable as champions. So yeah, stun them.
: STUNS AREN'T A COUNTER
Doesn't even have to be a stun, a snare, a root, any hard CC will do, but if your team comp is so crappy that you don't have any hard CC, you don't have any right to complain when you lose.

Granted poppy had design issues. But they could have just changed those abilities. > > It doesnt matter how many people play them. So long as they arent breaking the game its worth keeping them. Having poppy in the game as a bruiser doesnt hurt anyone. They all just play other champions and get along just fine. but removing them does hurt the players who play them. Who cares if poppy had a .2 percent playrate. That .2 percent fucking love her. change her ult a bit and change her passive a bit so she can get a bit more power. (idk maybe instead of invulerable to cc and damage, maybe 50% reduced damage and 50% tenacity, and we can balance from there. Maybe instead of reducing all damage over 10% of your max HP by 50% maybe its just by 10%. and you can give back some of her power into her kit.) At point, is it still Poppy then, it is still the champion you wanted and liked? > contrary to popular opinion these champions held such terrible playrates because they were intentionally gutted and left there. It had nothing to do with how fun they were. People like to win, and they dont want to put in a lot of effort and deal with being garbage every time they play. So only the truly dedicated stayed with them. that doesnt mean you couldnt have just tweaked the actual kit instead of removing it. There was room for changes, or at least attempted changes before the champ was deleted. Because their designs didn't work and/or pure and utter stat checks. Sion got reworked because no matter what you choose, AD or AP, you were literally cut off from two of your abilities. If you went AD Sion, your Q and W were useless, and if AP, then your E and R, that isn't good game design. Poppy was purposely kept in a shitty spot because having a champion that ignored literally everything wasn't good game design, and no amount of adjusting would make it good game design. Katarina was a stat check and took no skill or consideration as was Talon. > Reworks are cancer and whoever fucking started them, may he have lice and boils the rest of his fucking life for all I care. So instead we should have champions be left in spots where no amount modifying would make them viable and if they were, they would be broken, that is better, just to make the few people who do play those champions happy?

: yeah but he's so tanky that he can just walk through minions and flay you, and theres absolutely nothing you can do.
: Whats the counterplay to thresh??
Play him, there is no better way to figure out how to beat a champion then to play him. Also, if he is walking up to flay, that means he is putting himself at harm's risk, and if he misses his hook, he is then hookless.

: They never tried anything. I can suggest about ten ways they could have left his kit mostly the same and made it balanceable. But they just said 'fuck it' and deleted it. They never fucking tried. They could have crowd sourced ideas. They could have talked to Reddit aatrox mains. They could have attempted changes. Fuck, anything. They didnt. For any fucking champion they rework. I would understand if they literally were trying shit and releasing changes and talking to people. But no. The 40 people on the balance team didn't have an idea. No way 1.2 million other people could maybe come up with one. That's pure fucking stupid right there.
But they very clearly did try something, ok, you listen to some of those 1.2 million people and their suggestions make him worst, what then?

They just decided after a few months 'fuck him, we will reowrk him later' The patch notes said. >It’s been awhile since we’ve given the Darkin Blade a patch note (to say the least), and we owe Aatrox players an apology for that. We know it doesn’t feel good to hear that your champion is a “game health issue”, and it’s even more demoralizing when we don’t do anything to solve that. When we have talked about Aatrox, we’ve typically focused on his self-heal based gameplay, and how difficult it is to maintain. Tackling a project that large is something more appropriate for a full VGU or a champion class update, but that focus has led us to neglect Aatrox for far too long. Aatrox has other problems besides the dicey-ness of self-healing, and we’re taking this time to tackle some of those problems. Hopefully, we’ll come out the other side more comfortable giving Aatrox balance tweaks in the future. As it stands, Aatrox is always perched on a fine line between smashing everything and not having any options at all. His abilities cost health, which makes fighting from behind even harder. And since his healing scales with his damage, building tanky not only hurts his kill potential, but also doesn’t make him that much harder to kill (because he sacrifices healing potential in the process). We want to give Aatrox more to do in the games he’s not running away with. That means making it more rewarding for him to invest some gold in durability, as well as making it less punishing for him to use his abilities. Basically repeating what i said. They decided his gameplay was unbalancable and instead of trying to work within his kit to fix it, they gave him a lazy placeholder rework and then removed him from the game. > > As they should, since most people here are bad and don't even begin to understand the concept of balance.

So instead of making him too strong and have people bitching about it, they left him weak after years of attempting to make him work.

: No. Riot destroyed off builds. AP tristanna was viable (ish) until riot reworked her kit. Same with MF kog ez (probably, I am assuming they remove it with the w update) amoung others. Aatrox could have been balanced and fixed without a rework. At least not to the same extent. Simply tweak some abilities. Granted that maybe doesn't apply to sion and poppy. (Poppy's passive and ult absolutely were broken. But they could have kept the spirit of them and left her mostly alone) and either way you tried to push sions ruined someone's gameplay as he was played ap and ad. Altho they could have tried to keep both, or at least one. Riots reworks suck almost across the board. Barring Kat's first rework. Jax and sivir rework. WW was almost good, same with nunu. But as close to good as we will get. The rest of them are terrible. Also all the champs you meantioned were able to be built against. Yi was only good if nobody purchased either banchees or GA. Raka could be played against. She was very short ranged, had relatively low damage unless it was quite a lengthy teamfight. She was also rather unable to hit a ton of members. (effective damage range was like 550) her power was in burst heals. And she was never game warping. Simply a lane bully. Actually she is most comparable to karma. A lane bully who basically has irrelevant damage past 20 minutes.

No comment on two since people did have those fun builds that they played with then immediately went into the normal resistance filled pages because they were optimal. One however is just bullshit, people want and liked creativity right until the point where it became meta. We gonna forget the times when AP Sion, Try, Yi, Tristana were things? The times mage Soraka was viable? Because the moment creativity becomes meta, it goes from “Wow, that is funky and neat” to “omg, Riot let’s a champion be uncounterable since you can’t itemize against them” or some other bullshit excuse REAL quick. Three happens out of nessecity. I miss Old Mordekaiser as much as the next main of him but he didn’t work. At what point do you continue to let champions wallow in a state of disuse and unplayability and for how long? Seriously, look at Aatrox, dude sat shit tier for 5 years and only started seeing any play after a broken interaction between his kit and certain items. I’m not saying Riot is perfect, far from, but you can’t ask for some of these things and act like the flip side didn’t happen.
: "Riot’s League of Legends Patch System Seems to Cater to a Singular Audience"
I honestly believe that if Riot wants to balance this game, they need to choose one place and only one place to focus balance around. This balancing in an attempt to make everyone happy mindset just makes everyone pissed.

It has no more or less toxic players then other games it is just since the density of players is so high, the chances of you finding one are above average. They will come though, give it time.

Nah nah i will tell you why they say at low elo or in any elo in general. For example i tell people {{champion:90}} {{champion:1}} etc is good counter to Yasuo, Zed, assassins in general why not play them ? Their answer cause they too boring, i would rather lose to play boring champion and win. That legit was their answer and it tilting me.
See exactly why we should ignore these players when it comes to balancing at ALL?

And he one of the simplest champions in this game mean he a good pick for low elo without any direct counter which sucks for them, people in high was able to deal with {{champion:62}} but riot just gutted him for the love of low elo as well. So why not the same happen to garen ? as {{champion:62}} main, he had many easy weaknes that no one in low elo able to use against him including his weak laning and jungling he not able to fight against tankers and juggernauts a good warding against him easy to make him not able to move around freely since he doesn't have permanent hide like Eve neither he able to R on you from out no where like Noc. Yet riot decide to nerf him to ground cause low elo people can't do any of that, welcome to balance team. Instead of fixing problem of champions they nerf without thinking.
