Has Riot considered any other way to buff Liandry's Torment besides the current one on the PBE? Like reducing the cost by 100 gold so it can at least match the price of Morellonomicon and be more competitive for that item slot?

XD she needs a buff btw in her current state ... Do you actually think that's a nerf to her twin fangs? It's literally a revert on a previous nerf and if you play Cassiopeia you should recognize that. I don't know why OP worded it that way when I wrote it differently but it's giving Cassiopeia back the base damage she had taken away becaue of old Abyssal Mask. Refer to patch 7.18 patch notes.

What kind of changes are you looking to make to mid lane carries like Cassiopeia, Syndra and Malzahar? Also are there going to be any additional changes to mid lane to prevent supports from simply stalling out the lane?

Thoughts on Sorcery at the moment including it's lack of options or niche champions like DoT mages? Any further plans to follow up on Phase Rush(the 10% extra movespeed early helps but it's still really unsatisfying to use compared to SRS). Thoughts on a 4th keystone in Sorcery?

: Experiment: Community Patch Notes
{{champion:69}} E - Twin Fang BONUS DAMAGE VS POISONED TARGETS 10/30/50/70/90 (+0.6 ability power) ⇒ 15/40/65/90/115 (+0.5 ability power) "A while ago we reduced Cassiopeia's base damage due to Abyssal Mask becoming a dominant choice in lane, with the intention of forcing Cassiopeia players to purchase AP early if they wanted to scale up properly. With the rising importance of early mana purchases this midseason, and Abyssal Mask now bearing far more risk, however, we feel comfortable giving the snake back a little more bite where it matters most."
: You should buff biscuit delivery
I'd prefer it if they reduced the time that you're able to receive it by 50 seconds at all 4 intervals adding together instead. Instead of 3, 6, 9, 12 minutes, if it were reduced to 2:50, 5, 7:50, 10 minutes instead.

Is there still going to be more follow up to mages following 8.9? Viktor and Anivia aren't the only mages that were very negatively impacted by that patch. Cassiopeia in particular has lost a considerable amount of laning and mid game pressure from the all the nerfs to tear, on top of nerfs to her mana growth, on top of nerfing Doran's Ring in a way that's extremely suboptimal for a champion that relies on using twin fangs to last hit. I can understand Cassiopeia being mana gated during her early game but now she feels extremely mana gated until 2-3 items. She also lost a considerable amount of base damage last season so building straight mana items early is no longer an option.

Any plans for Liandry's Torment? It's currently a terrible item compared to what it used to be, and also compared to other AP items around the same price point, and even some cheaper items. It's not even worth purchasing for the famous Rylai's, Liandry's 2 item powerspike anymore because Morellonomicon outclasses it in every way including on DoT champions.

12 million subscribers during WoW's peak during WOTLK down to 5.5 million subs and only projected to continue declining from 2015.... that is by all means a dying game. It doesn't matter if Blizzard keeps releasing new expansions for the group of people that continue playing, they cannot grow their playerbase, and the players they do have are slowly leaving.

Since Riot wants mages to be played in bot lane in the future, is there a plan to give mages increased base armor to make that viable?

Is Riot okay with where Kalista is right now? She has one of the lowest winrates coupled with one of the lowest playrates which means even the 1-tricks and mains that still play Kalista lose quite a few games with her.

: Probably not. I think our desire to make LB more of an illusionist/deceiver was what created a lot of the problems with the previous update. Thematically that's a strong match for LB's character, in terms of what gameplay players liked about LB up to that point it was a secondary note though. There's some of it on the mindgames around the W and the use of the clone passive, but LB's historically been about a combination of windows of burst, mobility/slipperiness and dexterity I'd argue. If she was a brand new character would certainly want much stronger alignment between theme and gameplay. Cost of trying to get that here's been too high though.

The issue is trying to make her too much of a "deceiver" ended up making her become a wannabe Shaco. You could certainly improve her thematic but straight up copying Shaco's kit with a summonable clone, briefly going invisible upon ulting etc... just wasn't the way to do it and it took the uniqueness out of LeBlanc as well. She already has the same joke as Shaco to....

"Numbers tuning on some other runes that are just not balanced well enough (e.g. Approach Velocity is weak, Celerity is strong etc" Does this mean Riot will shift the power back into Phase Rush if Celerity gets nerfed? Phase Rush is already awful and just straight up nerfing Celerity is a big hit to Phase Rush users specifically.

: Ever since his W was nerfed, Ornn isn't even fun anymore.
Why are we having a pity party for Ornn? Does no one remember what this champion was like just 1-2 months ago? Ornn is not as easy to play as other tanks but when he is played well he is insanely unfun to deal with and there is literally no reason to play any damage top laner when you could do just as much damage building full tank on Ornn. People need to stop taking their subjective interpretation on what a champion's identity is and then pushing it as something mainstream.
: A goodbye letter
Best of luck with your future endeavors my friend
: Waveclear work for 8.6 or later
Wouldn't it be more beneficial to directly target the champions of the "perma push and scale or roam" strategy like Malzahar directly instead of affecting wave clear? Mid Lane already feels like it lasts too long and is too stalled out. This will also negatively impact champions like LeBlanc who is losing a lot of wave clear during her revert process, and already lost +5 damage to minions from both spells and basic attacks.

Has Riot considered directly reverting the buffs to jungle items in 7.22 similar to removing +5 damage to minions and bandit?

: No because league never will be and never has been a 1v1 game. I'm kinda confused about top lane atm. You have half the people wanting it to be a 1v1 island while the other half want more contribution over the rest of the map. Those two don't really mix. You can't have top lane be an island for 25 minutes while expecting to be relevant in the game. Blast cone spawn time was pushed back. That makes it so junglers have to either: A) walk all the way through river which spots them out on your ward much sooner B) burn a gap closer over the wall which makes their gank much much weaker If you don't ward then that's on you. LoL is not a 1v1 game. Top lane is not for 1v1s
Yes because asking not to be ganked by someone 1 level higher than you with full HP and double buffs at 2:30 before you can buy control wards and becoming a free bag of 400 gold is the same as asking to be left alone for 25 minutes. Riiiiiiiiight........
: janna is such cancer
I'd rather face Janna than Tahm Kench, Braum, Taric, or any other unkillable peel bot tank that's been dominating bot lane for the last 5 months.

Does Riot plan on working on other keystones that are rarely seen and/or used like Phase Rush now that you've introduced the new bruiser keystone?
: 8.4 will add 30% more total Cooldown Reduction into Mage Itemization.
CDR is to mages what attack speed is to ADC. Mages should hypothetically have access to the most CDR, and the most convenient sources of CDR.

: Why are people complaining about zoe when veigar has been 1 shotting champions for ever?
Veigar is one of the squishiest and move diveable laners in the game. It's not the fact that Zoe can 1 shot that angers me, it's the fact that she has SO much safety in lane on top of it. The fact that she can get shit like Barrier, Heal, and Redemption while laning on top of the fact that she can 1-2 shot someone by level 6. The fact that she is so safe in lane that she can just sit way behind her minions and zone you away from her by throwing a bubble in your direction forcing you to disengage everytime. The fact that if you catch her out during her ult and CC her, she will still portal back, and can just use a free flash to get away. Veigar has NONE of this safety or hand holding. TLDR fuck zoe

I really didn't think Azir could be nerfed anymore than he already is. He is going to be old Azir with lower ranges at a 42% winrate for the rest of the season.
: The problem with rylais (and maybe frozen mallet too)
Riot didn't nerf Rylai's for the slow they nerfed it because literally every AP champion was buying it instead of it's core users making every AP champion and mage feel extremely generic without distinction between different sub-classes like burst and sustained mages. Instead of nerfing it as a stat-stick Riot just nerfed every single thing on the item instead. The worst thing that Rylai's could get is better stats instead of improving it's passive because that would just make it a more generic must buy item on any champion again.

Is Riot concerned about the significance of smite and the jungler role overall now that both Baron and Elder Dragon are going to be so much more powerful past 40 minutes? Also are there any plans to tone down Fleet Footwork as a keystone? It significantly outperforms the other two precision keystones, and has amazing synergy with both Celerity and Taste of Blood with Ravenous Hunter.
: "We'll likely be buffing PTA" LUL
PTA didn't even need changes, Fleet Footwork is just OP. There is no point in trades in lane anymore when Fleet Footwork gives so much sustain, just like when Warlord's Bloodlust gave up to 20% lifesteal based on missing health.

: AP Items Request for Balance Thoughts
Being a RoA mage like Cassiopeia, Anivia, or Ryze feels really bad compared to the people that build newer starting items first. All the new starting items give higher mana up front, 20% CDR, and have really useful damage tools(Ludens, GLP) or superior mana stacking(Archangel's). With the new availability of HP/AP items like Morello, and the return to viability of older AP/HP items like Rylai's, I'm not sure if the extremely delayed early power spike for RoA is even worth it for the rewards of a fully stacked Rod of Ages anymore.
: Patch Chat with the Playtest Team - 8.3
Are Cassiopeia, Pantheon, and Kassadin still on the radar for follow up changes following the changes to targeted spells and minion aggro?

: Riot I have a question on new Archeangel's Staff.
I'm pretty sure they just haven't updated the tooltip for Seraph's Embrace yet. A Rioter already said the item will give a total of 1400 mana once fully stacked. That's 750 from tear + the 650 base mana on the item.
: It wasnt really designed for bruisers though. Why do you think its called the **"sorcery tree"**? It was made for Low range battle **mages**, so they arent forced into aery and comet. I think its perfectly fine on {{champion:69}} or {{champion:136}} or the new Swain. Its not a generalist keystone like aery or comet. Its designed for very specific purpose.

The rioter said that all the changes made to Phase Rush like lowering the numbers were to make it better for bruisers though. His name is AzuBK. My point is that all his intended reasoning and changes to Phase Rush actually ended up having the opposite effect, and instead made it an extremely niche keystone.

Thank you for the Archangel's Staff change. Also why were no changes made to existing Catalyst items besides removing GLP as a Catalyst item?

: Riot forgot to compensate AD mids for the loss of lethality runes (Zed and Talon)
Lethality runes were broken as hell and were never lowered after lethality got buffed. Riot always planned on removing them. Being able to build a Hexdrinker first and still 2 shot somebody with 24 free lethality at it's buffed state was bullshit.
: Gathering Storm should work every 5 min. instead of every 10 min.
If it was more like old scaling AP/AD no one would ever take scorch, or Riot would have to buff scorch to ridiculous levels to compete with it. Gathering Storm is already great if your playstyle is scaling over lane pressure.

What is happening with Syndra? The bug fixes didn't help her much in terms of her current struggle to keep up in season 8. Are there any plans to either revert previous nerfs or add existing power?

: Should LeBlanc receive a VGU?
LeBlanc's appearance is meant to be deceiving so if she doesn't look like the allmighty ancient leader of The Black Rose and one of the earliest Noxians that's intended design. LeBlanc either needs a partial revert like Rengar is getting or a full revert. I don't understand why Riot claims she would be so problematic to even partially revert when they allowed Zoe to be created and released into the game.
: PSA: Rengar’s partial revert have been pushed to 8.4
It was always supposed to be 8.4 the thread on the PBE boards even specified this.

Any news on when LeBlanc can expect any kind of work at all? Simple numbers changes? Passive changes? Anything? Meddler said she would be looked at after preseason for a long time, for some smaller adjustments to make her more of a mix of old LB and rework LB.
: Because it's not his fault. On the two champions Klepto actually works on, it's broken because its sole purpose is to increase income. That means they get their Trinity force long before they're supposed to, and so they're at their mid-game strength too early.

He has insanely strong winrates on 3 different runes in 3 completely different rune trees so no that "Well Klepto is broken" excuse isn't going to work. He has a higher winrate with Grasp than he does with Klepto.......................
