: Maokai’s q buff is a perfect example of Riot’s horrible approach to balancing tanks
Yeah I remember seeing Mundo buffs recently that were to his dmg, was shocked then as well

It wasn't very useful so they took it out and made the passive better overall. Also Aatrox doesn't build DPS so why would you be building Witts? You auto quite a bit more this patch. Idk who builds Wits tbh. But Mutilator was a big deal, but mostly for pro play.

What do you mean you 'auto' more this patch? Mutilator was alright assuming you're facing someone with healing and they use that healing within its duration. . otherwise it wasn't that impactful
: Just revert him. He became popular again right before the rework.. then they nerfed him into oblivion AGAIN.

I couldn't tell you how mad I was that Aatrox was considered terrible for so long (I still loved him) then the moment he got strong they COMPLETELY changed him. . .no other rework had been so far from the original and it haunts me everyday

Mutilator is gone. He just heals more. Like his E change makes it so Wits End has extra healing.

: They changed him for proplay. The goal was to buff regular play.

: Patch 9.9 notes
Im still salty that Aatrox was ever reworked in the first place. Most reworks retain the style the champ originally had, but Aatrox for WHATEVER reason didn't get that treatment. The reasoning? 'his kit is just TOO hard to balance!'. Firstly, no. If they simply lowered the damage of his E (which was good poke in lane) as well as his ult/built in healing, he would've been a fine champ (reworked Irelia is 100% more OP than old Aatrox). Instead they completely change him into this clunky, boring champ that THEY STILL CANT FUCKING BALANCE! So not only did you ruin what was a wonderful and unique champ, and not only was the rework really bad and really bland, BUT THEY STILL HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO BALANCE SOMETHING THEY CREATED TO BALANCE SOMETHING ELSE THEY ORIGINALLY CREATED WHICH COULD'VE BEEN BALANCED! I get few are crying over the old Aatrox because he was DOGSHIT forever and was only good for a few months, but what they did was SO incredibly stupid it still haunts me. Now after reading this. . Im baffled.

: Wits end is literally broken on him. You could however argue that the guys in the penta clip played it terrible. Yes, imo he is overperforming for how dead easy he is to play. It's just that some champions can't outdps him in any point of the game. His level 2 is just ridiculously strong and it gets worse from there. The only arguement for this champ is that you cc him he's dead. But..... His w gives amazing damage reduction + healing for when he gets cced by grounding abilities.(aka not stun or supression) Literally he can tank a full late game lux combo by clicking w while rooted I think it's all too much.
