Looks like OP's team had no magic dmg, so the GA + tabis + randuins (which youre right, doesnt even come near full or even half tank) made the yi insufferable to fight against. Game lost at champ select, OP should learn to threaten teammates with troll if they try to draft an all ad or all ap team

: You should ask this. "How can the total number of players in the ranked ladder be so much lower than seasons 6-7(for example) but the queue times haven't increased by the equivalent amount? Doesn't this promote more unfair matches?" And then watch them ignore it like none's business.
Well if the loss of players proportionately affected all roles, then so long as there is still a big ass amount of players that play league of legends, the "equivalent" (not the righht word you were looking for I'd imagine) amount of increase in the queue times would be so small that it would have simply evaded your detection.

Sure the casters have talked about balance before, but much more often than not they seem reluctant to point out many of the rather glaring issues year after year. They'll see the most OP champ at the time make a play and scream "WOWWWWWWWWWW (insert X pro name here) JUST WENT OFF, WHAT A PLAY, OMG" rather than say it as it is, "Alright, looks like he pressed R and facerolled everyone to win the teamfight."

If runes are the crux of the issue, then the solution ought to be in the runes, not in something totally unrelated. I wouldn't be surprised if this dorans change massively shifts the bot lane paradigm with hyperscale ADCs versus lane bully bot lane comps (reah remember when bot was nothing but fucking twitch trist vayne starting dshield and being unbullyable?). I do not accept the rationale in your post (not saying you endorse it or not) for the dorans change. The fix should be in runes, even if it means cutting out from offensive runes at the same time this resolve change is made.

Can shyvana not be a stat checker plz? Oh, no? Then her new passive can wait.
: Annie is NOT going to be a top melee abuser because her SPELLS still have a cripplingly short range, which puts her in their danger zone. Sure, she can stun after 4 spell casts, but a lot of bruisers and divers can also stun or simply get to her before she can do any lasting damage to them. Plus, Annie's designed to murder assassins, because she relies on a stun and burst. Bruisers and divers build HP and some defenses, which means that Annie is going to have a very tough time bursting them down before they can kill her. So no, Annie is not a threat to top lane melees.

: What are your thoughts on Kindred?
Gameplay Wise I think the infinite scale needs to go. It's cancerous and always has been. Infinite bork scaling was cancerous, and the current passive is cancerous. The problem with a jungle hypercarry ADC is that if they're weak early game (to justify their late game) then they can basically never do anything on their own, especially contest things like scuttle crab, and they're permatrash. If they're good enough early game to contest things in the jungle on their own, they immediately dominate the jungle and become pick/ban. In terms of fun, I think kindred is kind of fun, but not fun enough to justify her cancerous kit. Creativity wise, it's awful. Kindred is nothing but a stat check ADC with a utility ult.

: Who is Morde Supposed to be good against?
Honestly morde makes little sense to me. Most times I see him he just goes pure AP and tries to get one q auto before pressing R to delete a squishy. If it doesnt work hes useless. He used to be able to go toe to toe with other bruisers, but a lot of bruisers have gotten powercreeped over him. Darius used to be a skill matchup but nowadays I can just fucking outright delete morde with fairly little effort after all the E and W buffs and passive buffs.

Do you want go come and tell me with a straight face that Wukong deserves a rework more than Mordekaiser, Pantheon, Mundo? He's not only among the most needed, he ain't one of the most requested either (China is a large share of the playerbase and so its opinion has rightfully a weight, even if you might not like it). So I don't think wukong players are in the position to demand a rework so impatiently. That said, Wukong is sitting in the land of the forgotten, he sure deserves some gameplay changes to inject back some viability (his clone stunning champions and monsters before disappearing, maybe some of his dmg increased if the clone is damaged... For sure he should not get more front loaded damage).
