: At the end of season 5, the game was very balanced, with just a few overtuned champs like gp. Then rito decided they wanted to change the game and introduced the keystones, which threw the game intonan extremely unbalanced state.
Do you remember Season 5? That was when the marksman update came out. There were quite a few problems, and large parts of the games were unbalanced.

: 3150 Mid Laner?
I like Heimer top, can't say much for mid. Pros, you have good siege, harass, and, if you land your E, a nice bit of CC. You can dish out a surprising amount of damage at level 6, with your empowered rockets. Not only that, Heimer is pretty fun to play, as you can focus more on dueling, as your turrets help with csing. Cons, you have pretty clear boundaries, as you lose a lot of damage when your not near one of your turrets. Your E is moderately hard to land, and is a bit strange to use. Until you get a Rylai's, you don't have much chase potential, and that can be pretty frustrating. Masteries, I go either go 12-18-0, with thunderlords for poke, 18-12-0, with DFT as the keystone. In a lane you feel your going to lose, you can go 0-18-12, getting thunderlords and regen masteries, to help out in lane, due to your absurdly high base regen. Anivia, I don't play, so I'm no help here. Karthus, personally one of my favorite champions, is a good pick, if your prepared to spend time getting good. His theme is cool, and you can deal a significant amount of damage, while being pretty tanky. Pros, you have good waveclear, a nice ult, and your passive guarantees you will be able to deal some decent damage, even if you get caught and killed in a teamfight. Cons. you have no hard CC, your Qs are pretty easy to miss/have dodged, and your ult can be pretty easily countered. If you get caught as Karthus, its unlikely you'll get away. Most people prefer to go thunderlords on Karthus, as its pretty easy to Q, AA, Q, however, I prefer DFT, as it allows for a nice burn on your ult, more damage on your Qs, and helps with your overall power, as Karthus's AP ratios are pretty garbage.

The good old days of AP Yi, AP Trynd, release Aatrox, release TF, release Leblanc, Eve with a stun, DFG one-shots in a second, the tank meta, Udyr, Teemo running at Mach 5, with his shrooms lasting 10 minutes, with much higher ratios, the horror of on-hit items being OP, Kassadin 95% ban rate, and numerous others.

: Adcs are becoming so irrelevant that they are being replaced by mages bot lane
Are Ashe, Sivir, and Jinx bad right now? Ashe has good initiation, infinite slows, and a pretty low skill cap. Sivir, while lacking a strong laning phase, splitpushes like a god, and has pretty good AOE damage in teamfights, without building a Runaans. Jinx is still the terrifying hyper-carry she always was. Of the current ADC's only Kalista and Lucian seem to be in a bad spot. Vayne was, and still can be quite OP, as she is supposed to be an ADC and an Assassin, having both high burst and good sustained damge, as well as invisibility. Of the mages you listed as replacing ADCs, I can really only see Cass, maybe Veigar, as they are both pretty farm reliant APCs. Ryze is simply better suited mid or top, as most adcs can out range him, his main counter, Zyra lacks the damage to be an APC, part of the reason she isn't played mid anymore. Azir, despite the recent buffs, is still pretty bad early game, and would be easily beaten by an early game bully, such as Draven.
: Academy Adventures
Fiddle, being the amazing actor he is.
: Good points, except almost all of that is wrong with regards to LoL. The pathfinding/terrain has nothing to do with the visuals of the map - they can, in fact, just put a skin over it. BB already exists, change a little scripting and it would be ready for use. We will probably see it again.
BB would have to be redone, in regards with the new items, champs, and previous texture problems it had.
: Aatrox Rework
I would like to preface this by saying I'm an Aatrox main, and that I sincerely enjoy the champion. While this rework is an interesting concept, but I don't like the change to his E. Aatrox's E is the most distinctive ability kit, being the only ability in the game that works the way it does. Its his only form of ranged poke and a pretty useful farming tool. He would need some serious number buffs if you were going to remove the damage it deals.

: About Akali...
If things work better/the same, how exactly did the rework fail?
: All the examples I'm using are specifically for going through Veigar's Event Horizon, stay on topic. The point of this post is Talon has absolutely no way to go through event horizon and I shouldn't have to buy an expensive item to counter 1 ability from a single champ. Event Horizon is the only CC that really bothers me in this game and Talon used to be my way around that.
If a Vi dashes through a Veigar EH, with her Q, it stuns. Same with Fizz. Yasuo is also stunned if he E's through it.

: Worst case scenario: When your best friend decided to ditch LoL for Overwatch
Let him go. Respect his decision, and wait patiently for him to return to LOL. You can quit if you want, but you'll never truly leave.
: I still got a S, been using Talon religiously after the rework (check my match history), first time against {{champion:45}} after rework though, it tilted me to intentionally Q to Veigar thinking I would blink to him, only to be stunned and obliterated! Started the match 0/1, afterwards I wiped the floor with him. It was the last match I played.
So you played Reworked Talon for a bit, faced a Veigar, then intentional used your dash through his stun. You knew it was a dash, yet you just hopped on through the Event Horizion. Why? What were you expecting to happen?
: That's exactly what I did, only {{item:3156}} though, didn't want to get {{item:3814}} because it's so obvious when it's active and Veigar just stays out of my ridiculously short Q range. But if counterplay is the issue to change his blink into a "leap", then why {{champion:105}} {{champion:60}} {{champion:7}} {{champion:38}} {{champion:238}} {{champion:11}} {{champion:56}} {{champion:35}} {{champion:254}} {{champion:157}} ... ?
Fizz, Nocturne, Vi, and Yasuo all dash, for the most part. They don't really have blinks in their kits, with Fizz only sorta having one because of his invulnerability on his E. However, his Q is a dash and is treated like one.

It seems more to me that you just don't like how Camille was designed. That is no reason to say that Riot's recent champs have overloaded kits. The last one I can think of having an overloaded kit was Yasuo, and he came out three years ago.

: Anyone play Rek'Sai top?
I've played a bit of Rek'sai top, simply because I love the champ design but hate jungling. Skill max I go Q > E > W, putting a point in R whenever possible. Depending on what you want/what your team needs, you can go for a more tanky or a more bruiser build. Tank: 12 - 18 - 0, with CoC as the keystone. Rune-wise, flat AR yellows, scaling MR blues, flat AS reds, scaling CDR Quints {{item:3748}} {{item:3742}} {{item:3065}} {{item:3022}} {{item:3512}} and {{item:3111}} or {{item:3047}} This build gives you a nice mix of MS, split-push potential, Health and resists. The only thing it really skimps on is LS. Your main focus will be to knockup targets in teamfights, Q - Hydra - E to burst. Your overall damage will be subpar, but with runes/items you'll have 25% CDR lategame, which put your abilities on pretty decent cooldowns. Bruiser/Onhit: 18 - 0 - 12, with Warlords/Fervor as the keystone. Rune-wise, flat AR yellows, scaling MR blues, flat AD reds, flat AS Quints {{item:3124}} {{item:3153}} {{item:3742}} {{item:3065}} {{item:3512}} and {{item:3111}} or {{item:3047}} Your first item will be Rageblade, as it synergies with your Q pretty well. Your ult gives you quite a bit of hidden power, so in extended trades you'll be doing a lot of damage. Most people won't expect your damage output to be so high, so its pretty easy to bait them into an easy kill for you, especially if you have Fervor. You also splitpush extremely well, and have a good amount of sustain, especially if you take Warlords. In teamfights, you can isolate and shutdown targets pretty well. Deadman's gives you a nice slow on your first auto, and you can normally up your Rageblade pretty quickly, if you can land your knockup. Since you actually have a bit of AP with this build, your burrowed Q actually deals some damage, and can help you CS from range, if your in a particularly bad lane.

: Hypothetical: Lifesteal becomes a unique Named Passive
This seems as though it would make things worse. The people who "abuse" lifesteal are ADCs, who normally only have a BT. This would just be a nerf to Bruisers who stack lifesteal, over AD.

: Assassins have too much of an easy time getting to a carry
So, a lone Assassin dives an ADC and Support, who have all of their summoner spells, are full build, with a full BT shield, as well as magically empowered lifesteal. And you expect them not to die? The Assassin class update increased burst windows. You can still easily burst a lone ADC or other squishy as an Assassin, which is what they are meant to do.
: GLP needs a functionality buff
GLP is a damaging AOE slow. It's usefull for when you don't need a short dash, but a slow, so you can keep up with you opponents. It also gives you the passive Eternity, which, imo, is the best passive in the game, item-wise.

: Are bootless builds viable?
It depends. On a champ like Karthus, you can pick up T1 boots, but you'll likely sell them, as MS isn't something you worry about on Karthus. For the most part though, boots are a good idea to get.

: Jarvan's ult does not do that much damage lol I wish it did but it simply doesnt
J4's ult has a base damage of 450, at max rank, with a 150% AD scaling. With a build like this: {{item:1412}} {{item:3071}} {{item:3156}} {{item:3065}} {{item:3143}} {{item:3111}} You get about 274 AD at level 18. So, your ult will deal about 861 physical damage.

Camille was hot-fixed nerfed because she was OP on release. However, she still costs the same amount as she did pre hot-fix. You always see this circle-jerk of "Riot releases a champ OP so people will buy them", but do you remember release Ivern? Release Taliyah? Ivern was so shit he was buffed multiple times, and is only considered good, with the release of new support items. Taliyah was garbage tier as well. Riot over-buffed her she was so bad.
: Meddler, is it so much to ask for lane bullies to actually have mana costs?
Yorick Q: 25 mana vs Nasus Q: 20 mana. Both of these abilities are used frequently by both champions, and are essential to their kits. However, Yorick, the newer champ, rework wise, has a higher mana cost. How about Aurelion Sol? His W costs 40 mana + 22 per second, at rank one. If you keep it on for 3 seconds, that's 110 mana, a third of his starting pool of 350.
