Let's be honest, mage mains don't want equality, they want domination over AD champs. AD itemization might be too strong, fine, nerf it to the level of AP itemization but don't buff AP itemization. Why you might ask? Because Rito Game tends to overbuff shit and we all know that, including mage mains. They just hope that Rito listens to them, buffs AP and fuck up and overbuff it and then they can freely dominate all AD champs for a long time because Rito doesn't like to admit to mistakes.
