: Removing Runes: Yay or Nay?
The biggest problem with removing runes is that remving them would be the equivalent of Riot saying "We fucked up." and knowing them, they have a hard time admitting their failures on balance topics.

Rioter Comments
: Pyke's ult is actually the dumbest thing ever
Wow some of them were still at 50% health, that's dumb.
: depends on whethere 'determined' means "looked at the data, went through the design, etc", or "playtested". Former is okay, latter isn't. But in what world does Riot deserve the benefit of the doubt and to not have every single word analyzed to an extremely literal level, this dev team sucks, revert to beta, give 10k HP to tanks because tank meta is good btw remove all true damage and penetration ty. Seriously though, for all we know the playtest team has multiple junglers and these two rioters just collated and went through the feedback

: Pyke, the Bloodharbor Ripper
Since now all supports are items bot, I really wonder what kind of item you should buy on this guy. If you buy Relic with assassins items, that means you will have less utility for your team. Meaning someone will have to play Ivern or Nunu. I'm also concerned that he might be a good solo laner, especially with THAT passif.

I would suggest learning to read properly because I never said it was ok for any class. Also it's not just about ADC vs Assassin, there's also when mid laners used support items (or recently junglers and ADC).
: Are we supposed to believe "Stormrazor" is an adc item
It's sadly the biggest problem of having different class that can buy the same item, one will abuse it and the other will pay for it.

No one falls for it, aside when her rework was brand new. Seriously, I've seen more lb use it as a scouting method. I have never seen someone waste a summoner because of it, we can normally tell it's an illusion because they always walk until they cast a spell at a certain range.
Laura ß (NA)
: Janna's W 5 damage nerf is another gem by the balance team
Nerfing her will not change anything unless they gut her to the ground but Rio never want to do this kind of thing. Janna needs a rework, not nerfs. Even if you nerf her hard, another enchanter will take her place like Karma or Lulu. Enchanters have always been problematic, I'm happy to see that the community has been able to see the issues since the last two years.

He said there needs to be a solution. He can find a solution without necessarily releasing an anti shield item. He can nerf specific items/champions as an alternative. But there has to be a solution. A simple solution is to prevent shield stacking by having some kind of maximum shield hp gained on each character. There's other solutions of course but this is the one that I think doesn't have any collateral damage to it. > Now I realize you are a support main who mains these exact champions so you probably think its all fine and not a serious balance concern and god forbid a heal/shield support not build redemption, ardent, and locket every single game right?

Yes it was indeed meddler who hyper-backpedaled the upcoming "8.10 changes" in his Q/A which were initially presented by RiotRepertoir a few months ago. Here is the screenshot of what he said: https://imgur.com/a/y1xT5 What was presented by RiotRepertoir as a massive project which would lead to bot lane opening up to other roles, marksmen no longer being required in every game, and bot lane powercurves being looked at, is now reduced to "likely a few item changes" LUL. I think what infuriates me the most however, is that when all this was initially announced (a few months back), RiotRepertoir went into boards posts which were unrelentingly raising concerns about bot lane power and itemization and he essentially told them to stop complaining (feel free to check his post history but just be ready to scroll very very far back) because he had already announced the 8.10 midseason changes which would address the concerns. But it was indeed a massive hoax just to get everyone to calm down. I mean if they really intended to shake the foundations of the bot lane meta, why didnt they announce it to everyone? on reddit? on the front page of the league client? No they ONLY announced it to the boards community. It was just a prank to get everyone to relax. https://imgur.com/a/u941y While on the topic of dereliction by RiotRepertoir, another case that I wanted to resurface was when he stated there would be big heal/shield changes in 8.6. OMEGALUL right? Similarly, a few months back, people were raising concerns about Janna (just like they are now, surprise) and RiotRepertoire went into these posts and told them to clam down because 8.6 was going to bring heal/shield changes in which "Janna would also be affected". Still waiting on those btw. He also promised that the team was working on an anti shield item for mages/assassins. Still waiting on that btw. Probably just another hoax. Source: https://imgur.com/a/qVUSY Atleast hashinshin was successful on making them finally release the bruiser keystone that they were "working on for months" by screaming and outcrying and telling riot to kill themselves and getting absurd upvotes on reddit. EDIT: I have added a source for my second point about shield changes. https://imgur.com/a/qVUSY EDIT2: Another source for my first point.

Still To be fair, there's a lot of risk of releasing an anti-shield item without proper balancing. People already complained about Grivious wound being a bad design as the only answer to heal. The danger is the side effect, you want that item because the likes of Janna, Karma and Lulu are strong, which is fine. But it will also destroy anyone who has a shield who is not a support. Like Diana, Udyr, Top Tahm even Kai'sa once she will get nerf. Supports will also no longer buy Locket in favor of other things Redemption of Knight's Vow or other tanky items. If anything, this item would force any current viable enchanters out of the lane in favor of tanky supports not named Tahm and mage ''supports'' like Brand who are already powerful. Sadly, catchers would also get nerf indirectly since half of the roster (Blitzcrank, Thresh and Rakan) also have shields.

> Like he pretty much summed what has been the problem with bot lane this year, supports being buffed and buffed into broken levels. > > "but we have to make supports broken or else nobody plays them!!!" > > Why do items like locket and redemption, who scale ridiculously hard in team fights and are very strong cost about 2k gold? Like one of the cheapest complete items on a class that gets free gold by existing, just why?? > Because Riot buffed the wrong thing, that's why. As a support player, this is the reason I stopped playing. You are not playing support anymore, you are playing item bot glued to the adc. Instead of increasing the support skill level by changing the kit of problematic supports like the enchanters, what do they give us? Gold, for the sake of "fun". Buzz off, I don't need gold. Back in my days (not even S1 or S2, I'm like early S4), we were just fine without a huge amount. But now with runes, items and no sighstone, the income is too much for how cheap the items are. The other problem that you mentionned of some items. I also agree, giving items ultimate level of power was a poor decision. Look at Redemption, it could have been a great offensive item that could be used while death. Instead, it's just a boring heal and a bit of dmg. Boooooooooooooring. Seriously, playing any catchers is asking to lose. Look at my match history, I still have those 12 nami games I played before quitting. I only lost 3 out of them, I just rushed broken items in every single game. And this is not bronze here, this is p1-d5. Please, keep buffing our items. It will totaly not ruin the game for everybody. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-unamused}}
