Why is it that adcs get shit for doing a lot of damage, but assassins don’t get anywhere near the same amount of shit for doing similar damage, earlier in the game, and with more utility.
Let’s look at the core builds (3 items) for these two roles.
Adc build looks like this.
Infinity edge - damage
Rapid fire cannon - damage and a small amount of ms
Second zeal item - damage and a small amount of ms.
Yet assassin builds look like this
Duskblade - shit ton of damage, vision removal
Youmuu’s - damage, ms steroid, another ms steroid
Edge of night - damage, spell shield, tank stats
These builds are doing similar damage, and the assassin build spikes on just the duskblade, yet adcs are getting shit for needing 3 items to be relevant.
