I don't understand why you nerfing dark Seal this way, but ap assasins (the core users of the item) getting compensated right? They can't lane withour dark seal/corrupting combo and will definitely take the biggest hit from this random nerf. Combined together with the random eyeball nerf it can be a meaningful hit.
: He is weak for them. The difficulty in balancing champions in League of Legends is that the needs of some groups of players are very different than others, and we're not really willing to say our goal is to make every champion in the game viable for Jensen or Dopa. That approach would serve them very well but serve most players very poorly. Our starting point is that we want to be able to say every champion is useful for some major player segment (ranked normal, ranked skilled, ranked elite, pro), and that if they're not good for at least one of those groups, then they should be buffed. Once we can say that's true of every champion, we can work on making champions more balanced across multiple player segments.
"Our starting point is that we want to be able to say every champion is useful for some major player segment " Then why Zed received buffs? He was already strong in multiple segments and had a high ban rate. Why you buffed Tryndamere? He was already pretty strong in low elo (gold and below). Overall the buff did very little. Why you overbuffed Kassadin at the summer? He was already a viable niche pick in competitive. Why you making the pre worlds competitive changes then? You are buffing already well performing champions just to make them viable in competitive. They often become viable in competitive and broken in soloq. These patches are completely against the philosophy you mentioned. While i think there is definitely no room to buff Fizz right now, based on the philosophy you followed with Zed there is. What i don't understand why are you hesitating so much to nerf strong champions while never hesitating overbuffing others when they are already in a decent spot.
: Again, it's possible we should nerf Riven. It's also possible we incorrectly nerfed Singed and should still not nerf Riven.
Hotfixing Singed was the right call. Not nerfing Riven isn't. When something is overperforming based on statistics or plat+ soloq pressence, it should be nerfed. This is why a live gameplay team exist with payed employers. Riven is overperforming since the release of Shojin, If you check her stats or play some soloq game against her you will see. If it isn't enough for you guys to hit her then there are either favoritism behind it or the design philosophy you are following is bad. While i think items are Riven's primary issue {{item:3161}} {{item:3812}} {{item:3071}} and amount of sustain avaible in rune reforge, at least she should receive some temporal nerfs until the real problem can be fixed.
: > Rioters should not willfully lie to the playerbase and should be held accountable. Agree. > lie on Twitter that it is a "western phenomenon" I said that her frustration is a western phenomenon. She is banned 60% more often in NA than her global average. Ban rate is a readily available statistic that we believe can be correlated to frustration. I also said on Twitter that Riven is a strong champion right now. Somehow that didn't make this post. There are good justifications to be made for nerfing Riven. I personally think some are pretty compelling. Good arguments can be constructed to nerf many things, however, and we want to be sure we're applying consistent measures in our approach to balance. I think we've not been great at this over the years, really. Some champion will always be the strongest one that does not get nerfed in a patch. This patch Riven's pretty darn close to that. If she picks up any more, she's probably due, but we don't think she's crossing that line right now. For those that are actually seeking a discussion, what is the criteria we should be using to justify a nerf to Riven this patch that we'd be 100% happy with applying to champions in the future (NOT the past, as I've already stated we haven't been consistent)?
You hotfixed Singed for being on 54% win rate. After sitting on such a high win/play rate for weeks, it should be enough criteria to nerf Riven. There is nothing to discuss here. When something is obviously overperforming it should be hitted with the nerf bat.

: The AP bruiser explorations Phroxzon mentions there as slow burn work didn't work out as hoped so that particular project got shutdown. Still agree there's a bit of a hole in itemization for some champs there though. Hoping we get a chance to work on it sometime this year. In the meantime for champs like Sylas who don't have items as well tailored to their needs we'll keep giving them a bit more power in their kits so they're in an appropriate spot balance wise. While that doesn't give other benefits well tailored itemization does (satisfaction, bit more strategic depth etc) it does put them in effective spots at least.
I wonder how much effort you put into it. Maybe like 10 minutes. Since you kindly removed abyssal scepter ap asasins and fighters don't have a single efficent item choice in the shop and instead band-aided with unreasonable high numbers. Maybe adjust {{item:3091}} {{item:3152}} {{item:3100}} {{item:3115}} instead of reworking adc items once every year, or making useless ap item reworks.
: Malphite needs 400 Armor to gain 120 Armor from his W passive
But Graves is a tank, while Malphite just a stone.
: Share your OWN thoughts on how you'd nerf Kai'Sa, Graves, Irelia, Aatrox, Urgot & Akali
{{champion:104}} Base hp and armor massively reduced. {{champion:145}} People wouldn't like it, but remove the shield from her ult. Her template was Vayne, she is an adc/assasin hybrid, she supposed to be risky and squishy. Imagine Zed with a shield on his ult. {{champion:39}} Q no longer deals double damage to minions, w now interruptable, compensation buffs if necessary focusing on her top lane performance. {{champion:266}} Just revert, and try to balance his old kit and not giving up on it after a few weeks. {{champion:84}} She can't be fixed.
: We'll monitor to see how his laning is. With these changes, I'd imagine his lane bully potential goes up significantly while his farming under tower case is less safe. His second W is functionally identical to first W, except different damage. No plans to change his animations right now and I believe the interaction with Black Shield/Void Shift working similar to spellshields is intended (though I'm not an expert on that specific topic). Sorry.
I know it's intended, it's got intentionally ninja changed last year mid summer. That wasn't the question. Since you are the one who working on Fizz, i suppose you have the permission to change/fix stuffs, so the question is are you planning to change it? If you hit double bomb with Zilean on Morgana she will still take damage from it but doesn't get stunned. If a year ago you ulted Morgana with Fizz the fish latched to her applied the mark and dealt it's damage, but didn't papply any cc. Now if you hit it it won't connect, no mark, no damage, nothing, you can cry in a corner. I doubt it it's actually fair at this point and according to the ability descripton of black shield, and void shift that shouldn't be the case.
: Fizz Change Heading to PBE
By removing the reset mechanism are you planning to reduce his cooldown a little, maybe 10-8 to 8-6 or something or giving him a bit more extra ad to help him farm under tower? His laning is naturally very weak and the current w helps him to grab some cs even under tower. It seems a bit painful to farm and lane (at least on mid) with this w. Will the new w still incrase his aa range like the current one? Are you guys planning to change his current w animation to his crit animation? it would be sweet. Can you reintroduce the old ult interaction with black shield and void shift? (preventing the slow and the knockup but not dropping his entire ultimate, those are not spellshields)

: For keystones I think there's a clear need for work on Sorcery. Would like at some point (not sure what timeframe is realistic) to both do some work on Comet and get a fourth keystone in there. For non keystones Precision and Domination I think are the two trees most in need of work. Domination's vision related slot especially needs some work, while Precision's too lacking in meaningful choices (pretty solved on many of its users). In terms of what time I post these, I normally try to be consistent. Sometimes though if I've got a meeting or whatever so I need to get to work earlier than usual I'll put one up earlier.
Are you content with the state of dark harvest? Basically a Shaco and ARAM only rune.

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: June 1
You never considered ADs has way too much free durability attached to their offensive items {{item:3812}} {{item:3072}} {{item:3046}} {{item:3156}} {{item:3026}} even {{item:3071}} ? This allows snowballing ADs to dealing lots of damage and being tanky at the same time, making it very very hard to shut them down once they get ahead, snowballing Graves is the best example to this. Durability on damage dealers should have a price. Right now however it's free. AD champions are the biggest offenders of early game snowball, whatever is the reason behind it (plus Zoe and Vlad, but they are just overpowered) ,but free durabilty definitely contributes to it and the new spear of whatever will make it worse. Ma bet is next patch will raise the early game snowball even further.
: Remember when ADCs had to build lifesteal to access sustain?
I remember when ADCs needed to buy the item if they wanted to get a bloodthirster. Now they can get it freely from runes.
Kazo Kurosu (EUNE)
: Funfact: With 525 Bonus AD Fiora deals about 101% of enemy's max HP in 4 vitals.
: Those Abysal changes seem a bit uh, harsh
It hars but at least it will get rid of mid lane abyssal mask abusing. No carry champion should be ever allowed to abuse tank items and be fine with it. Personally i would remove the cdr from it. None of it's components has cdr, and there is already too much cdr in the game.
: See here's where your problem lies: {{item:3078}} {{item:3146}} What you should actually be getting is: {{item:3025}} {{item:3748}} {{item:3193}} with the assortment of situational items {{item:3194}} {{item:3143}} {{item:3026}} {{item:3110}} {{item:3075}} etc. etc. That there Trinity-Gunblade build is far outdated and useless unless you can end the game by 10 minutes.
You should get {{item:3076}} {{item:3047}} and outscale them.

: Highest presence top lane picks in season 7 pro play: https://i.gyazo.com/e11bded2713bb3f9eec8e403a70ed979.png 5 bruisers with over 15% Meanwhile https://i.gyazo.com/ad6f1690b174ce0c09d910e12ae4a92e.png 1 assassin at 15% lel
The only bruiser i see there is {{champion:164}}. Btw that wasn't the point of my comment, i agree assasins are struggling. But bruisers too, and riot does nothing. They just talking but not acting. Assasins and bruisers are in the same boat right now.
: Mid would be irrelevant to the discussion, but assassins have suffered more AND for a longer time than bruisers (many bruisers were good in season 7, its been preseason now and Riot is already trying to change it). So its pretty triggering to see everyone go crazy over bruisers while https://i.gyazo.com/4318100ae6c3e729176dd8792e328080.png as per usual, since literally season 4-3 minus maybe a few patches where assassin were good but that quickly got fixed again lol. So what do you think should happen? 2500 gold cost on {{item:3078}} {{item:3748}} or 3900 gold cost on {{item:3094}} so that bruisers have cheaper items than the late game class? Both seem ridiculous to me and I am complaining about the 3600 -> 3400 {{item:3031}} xd What I found by looking at the ~top 8 players in the 3 big regions are http://euw.op.gg/summoner/userName=sâtorius http://euw.op.gg/summoner/userName=jiiss3 http://euw.op.gg/summoner/userName=enevz http://na.op.gg/summoner/userName=cris http://na.op.gg/summoner/userName=tfbíade http://www.op.gg/summoner/userName=sktt1thai http://www.op.gg/summoner/userName=pi9 etc. playing bruisers. In your games I see a bruiser almost every game {{champion:82}} hehe
Which bruiser was good in s7? The only bruisers i remember is an overtuned {{champion:164}} , {{champion:114}} as a counter to her, and well {{champion:105}}. Maybe some other were strong after mid season when they overtuned DD, but they quickly released Bramble what fucked every AA based top laner. Assasins and bruisers are both struggling for long now because of similar reasons. They got beaten on lane, then they got outscaled by their opponents in teamfights, while supports shutting down their spikes with their extremely overtuned, broken piece of shit shields, leaving no place for them in this once awesome game.

Sterak should maybe, but Titanic should't be cheaper than what it is right now. It's Infinity what should be more expensive. btw i wiould gladly welcome a 3900 g {{item:3094}} and {{item:3087}}. I would be content if marksmans would be totally unviable.

Are there any plans to lane assasins? (both ad and ap). Right now the roster is a very situational Kassadin and a noob stomper Katarina.
: Can we rework Rylais into a healthier AP item? Pitch your ideas!
It supposed to be a situational utility item, what is avaible for every mages, if they are ready to give up some damage for the extra defense and teamfight utility it provides. The problem with pre-nerf Rylais was the 100 ap. 100 ap on a defensive item? it outclassed al of it's competitors. However right now Rylai is just another cheap and trash item among a bunch of cheap and trash ap items. The item is fine, they just need to fix the stats. Something like 70ap, 500hp, old price, pre-nerf passive. I think it would be fine. Magic pen is a bad idea. Flat pen shouldn't be on a defensive focused item.
: Since Tristana has a 105% AS steroid why shoulnd't Jinx get one similar too? (If you haven't recognized, this is an ironic question, so don't bother replying me)

: Flashable point-and-clicks: Are they intentional? Accidental? Is there a reason? Are they arbitrary?
Yasuo's e should be dodgeable, or at least used to be dodgeable. They are both travel a fix distance and will not deal any damage if they are miss. Coded like a skillshot. Meanwhile Panth, Heca, Wukong etc. always jump to the location of their target, coded like a single target spell and they will deal damage even if you flash. Is it bs? yes. It was a bug back then, Rito kept it and called it counterplay LUL.

I think there's room for another one or two, but the field of defensive "mage items" is already kinda full imo.

: Serious Talk: People need to chill out about the Balance Team
The flame and agression towards them is not fine, but they deserves all the negative critics after this season. They should listen to them and improve in the future instead of ignoring them. They did a very bad job and there is no reason to defend them. This season was like "they are on vacation". They created plenty of issues and they fixed none. Galio is the fourth non large scale update who needs to be hotfixed since mid season (Sivir, Singed, Janna), its alone indate there are issues in the team. The community is pissed rightfully, and there is no reason to defend the balance team now. I'm on the opinion if they won't manage to imrove in the next season they should be indeed fired.

: Arcane comet sounds worth trying on {{champion:105}} .. until you realize only his E and ult (and Q?) apply spell effects since 7.9 :( Revert Fizz to pre - 6.12 imo {{item:3070}}
It's pretty stupid that riot want him to be a caster and not a bruiser, but his q and w doesn't proc spell effects. This balance team is just bad (look at Galio).
Penns (EUW)

He became a top laner as a result of that. It was awesome. You want it back? It's better than being killed or forced to recall from 100% health without him landing half of his kit.
Looks like you never played against that abomination. Btw you can't force a full meele champion to be unable to trade without his ultimate, and he can't 100 to 0 you without his fish early game. Yes, his kit is badly designed, especially this w, but right now little can be done about it without another rework. Even if they decide to rework him, they need to fix the ap itemisation issue first, otherwise the new rework will be a mess just like the assasin " update".

After having so many discussion about adcs on the gameplya boards, can we get a honest opinion from you about the current state of marksmans and bot lane? Most soloq games being decided on the bot lane. Most competitive team compositin revolves around marksmans, reducing champ diversity and overall making the game less fun. Marksmans invading other positions (mid, jungle) while there is still no proper replacement for bot lane adcs.
: Nothing planned right now. Got any ideas?
Why His r no longer connects to cc immune targets? Why you are trying to sell it as a bugfix, when it is a ninja nerf? Why you are adding more and more forced counterplay into his kit? It just make things even worse.
Penns (EUW)
: Why was Malzahar passive changed to block Fizz ult?
It isn't just Malzahar. Fizz's R won't connect to cc immune target (Morgana, Olaf). They ninja changed it and now trying to sell it as a bugfix, what's mean the bug existed since Fizz's release. just bullshit.
: The designer just replied to me saying that it now correctly interacts with spellshields and CC immunity -- so it was bugged previously, and now fixed.
Well. It's bullshit. That's mean it was bugged for years, probably since his release??? If the current interaction is correct then it's a ninja change not a bugfix. Who is this designer? Fizz'R right now is the only ability what gets completely blocked with all of it's other effects (including the mark) by cc immunity. This can't be correct. cc immunity is not spellshield. Thresh can still hook himself to a Morgana with blackshield, Lb's tether still remain on it's target and deal it's damage despite of cc immunity. With the same logic let's go back to it's 6.9 state where tenacity caused the shark to errupt earlier, because it's a cc, or make it cleansable again, because cc. If Fizz needs to get nerfed fine, nerf him, but this ninja change is a bullshit, and selling it as a bugfix is even bigger bullshit.
: I forwarded this info, I'll get back to you if I hear anything concrete
: Patch Chat with the Playtest Team - Patch 7.17
Apparently Fizz's ultimate doesn't connect to cc immune target since 7.15, while previously it connected, but didn't apply it's cc effects. Is it an intended interaction or a bug? I can't find anything about it in previous patch notes, outside of this "Malzahar’s Passive - Void Shift now correctly blocks Fizz’s R - Chum the Waters". The problem is it's working like this since 7.15. So what is the bug? And what is the fix? Clarification would be nice, because it sucks to realise in the middle of your games, that something no longer works as it did before.

Yes because it's a fair, nice item what isn't strong enough right now and has so many tradeoffs. Just NO.
: Why is ori suddenly considered op, you guys called her balanced a month ago
Because of {{item:3102}}. She was probably balanced before this, but with {{item:3157}} and this shit she is just too safe. {{item:3102}} should be replaced with something what is effective, but doesn't block specific champions while making others op. Something what doesn't favor only long ranged spammy mages over everything else, while being uneffective against them.

: We are seeing Banshee's be a bit too effective as a rush item. We'll be upping its combine cost and MR as a result, leaving its power later in the game similar but reducing its early game impact.

Then again every1 will just sit on negatron again and upgrade to cancer's veil after Morello. Mages are incedible safe with Veil, they should not get back the ability to sit on negatron again.
