Cyborg is a member of the justice league now. Teen titans sucks anyway. it was cool when i was 12, but the whole flash of white effect every time a strike lands was lazy as fuck animating. Young Justice was 100x better than teen titans was from an objective standpoint. They should bring THAT back rather than teen titans. at least young justice had an overarching storyline that wasn't just SLADE. The comics for teen titans sucked too. In general the teen titans SUCKED. who wants to fucking watch or read about Justice League Lite other than the most autistic of p3d0s, and young children? and this live action mess literally looks like "AFFIRMATIVE ACTION" the tv show.
: You won the overreaction of the year award! Congrats! -25 on her heal at max rank is negligible at most. -5 HP on her heal until level 4 when you rank it up again. Assuming you max heal first. -10 HP at level 5 -15 HP at level 7 -20 HP at level 8 -25 HP at level 9 At max rank, you are still healing a flat amount of 160 HP + AP% ratio.

This nerf will practically be placebo. you act like those small numbers dont matter, but i routinely save my teammates with clutch heals, where they end up with 1-40 hp left. now red buff ticks are gonna get kills easier, ignite is gonna kill A LOT easier. losing 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25 hp on the heals is a big deal considering how much mana it costs

Rioter Comments
: Sej, azir, lulu, and rek'sai are all due to pro play. Shyvanna is just an auto attacker... Stat checks aren't good. Syndra is a worse example of unhealthy than anyone in the lower group (miss all skill shots, press r to kill). Also - Ahri gets complained about a lot because people who don't play her think Ahri players must be bad since she's a "sex symbol" and they just be "weebs" and not true "gamers". In reality, Ahri is probably one of the healthiest champion designs in league. While her numbers can end up too strong, she never needs to be guttered because of this. I make this argument on EVERY Ahri hate thread I post on, and in 4 years have never seen a half decent argument against it. Ahri burns a long cooldown (flash or ult) BEFORE going for her all in. She can burn that cooldown, have her charm dodged, and be missing a big part of her kit for a long time window. That's HEALTHY. That has counterplay, that gives Windows of opportunity for her opponents as her only real mobility is on a long cooldown (her q ms isn't anywhere close to dashes), etc... It's much better than say, syndra fishing for w-e stuns, and not committing to anything (i.e. using her r cooldown) until she hits it. Fizz is likewise healthy from his ult perspective (although he gets a busted e to compensate - what does Ahri get?). If you're getting hit by charm in Lane without her using flash or R, you're playing wrong. It's probably the second hardest cc to land in the game after anivia (who gets a wall and a slow to help land hers). Morgana gets a wonky hit box, lux gets to pass through one Minion, most other cc skillshots are faster.
