: >I'm seeing a pattern that has developed over the past several seasons that I find VERY problematic. I think a lot of it has to do with the broad reworks across entire classes, or entire item sets, but I also think A LOT of it is intentional by Riot. The pattern is that rather than working towards a universal sense of unified balance across styles of play, Riot seems to have decided on a single style of play that they deem "correct" and just pushed that forward, rapidly removing options. Let me illustrate with examples: Actually, it's usually the players who cause this to happen. Let's take some recent examples of where new picks come out: * Viktor top lane: Deemed "cancer". Community outcry forces it to die. * Aatrox/Urgot/Irelia mid: Deemed "cancer". Community outcry which eventually forces changes for all three. * Non-ADC Bot lanes: ADC players rage so hard they revert a good chunk of ADC changes. * Solo lane Tristana: Again, deemed as a sign of bad times. I don't believe it's gotten changes yet? * Tank Driver Yuumi (Yuumi + Tanky DPS like Garen): Yall know where this one is going. For a community that preaches about how it misses "diversity" and "unique picks", the moment one appears it's deemed unfun, wrong, or "not using the character as they should be". I can't imagine if original Sion or AP Yi existed today. Those champs would have been gutted so hard they'd have never existed in history.
the examples you have shown aren't really fair imo. As a toplane main, it was so boring to play against a viktor. he always won lane and could proc klepto while running away with his q speed. atm, playing tanks is pretty useless and frustrating when you can just play a ranged lane bully who can easily win lane and stop the enemies csing. Solo lane tristana is a problem because she does way too much dmg. i vsed her yesterday as garen and she could just jump onto me in melee range while we are both at full hp and win. i like diversity in lanes, but not when it gets to the point where ranged is just superior and more annoying to vs.

: "Tristana is balanced."
I dont know if trist adc is any good, but trist top lane is broken beyond belief. she does so much damage, and you cant do anything if your a tank or bruiser. i played garen into her and she rocket jump INTO ME at the start of the fight, press her attack speed and bomb button and somehow won because she hard outplayed me. once i was 6, i could beat her when she did that, but thats only because she didnt poke me down first. if she is gonna do so much damage, atleast let us kill her when as a melee champion we actually get into melee range.

: > i never had afks last season but now its a new season and now that im in my provisionals im getting afks 24/7 want stats & numbers ?
Im guessing your saying afks have gone down from last season, and im not saying thats wrong. What im complaining about is im constantly getting afks when i never used to, and these are my provisional games, which give me 3x lp. So ive basically lost 12 games of lp because of afkers
