I'm pretty POed about the Sej nerfs. She was stronger before her rework, but no on played her. She was re-worked to be weeker, nerfed some. Then no one played her.
Now an item changed. ONE freaking item. People look at the playrate and it looks pretty darn good. WELL NO kidding. No one has been playing CC junglers, and she wasn't bad to begin with, just no one but experts play her. And because cc junglers have been light or not around, everyone is eating CC for breakfast like they've never seen it. No wonder she has a higher win rate? The skill level of people playing her is higher!
So what happens instead, PBE nerftrain. What will happen? She'll be nerfed until no one plays her again. GREAT design riot!
She may need some adjusting but this is the most piss poor champion experience I've ever had.
I saw Sejuani nerfs coming. Why Veigar buffs reverted?
Elise is still useless, little more than a glorified stun-o-bot
This is not the way bards buffs should go I think. They should work on making his W meaningful lategame at least a bit. Now it's a minor movement speed boost with a high cooldown.
That low human movement speed is bound to cause some problems. Its not like spider form is an option 100% of the time.
Elise is in Spider form about 95% of the time. She's only in Human to throw off Cocoon or Spiderling. Moving around the map? Spider. Teamfighting? Spider. Ganking? Spider. Farming? Spider.
Nerfing Elise's Human Form movement speed means that its actually harder to land the Cocoon. Also like I said somewhere else, it hinders her ganking, because ideally she wants to walk in with Human Form, EWQ, then change to Spider Form. Now she may need to walk in with Spider Form, change to Human Form, EWQ, wait for CD,THEN change back to Spider Form. It may just be a second or 2, but every second counts while ganking.
Ryze buffs..... This guy got nerfed for a reasson....
Ye but i reckon they must be nearly ready to bring out the Ryze rework.
im guessing the opposite, if they are close to a finished rework why bother tinking with the current kit? id say most compensatory buffs to nerf hammered champions the likes of urgot and Darius are NOT because their reworks are close but because they are so far away compensation is necessary to keep them on life support.
Yes, except they clearly overdid it. Makes sense to backpedal a bit.
Well, tbh, I haven't missed the guy who has unlimited targeted ranged poke who scales on one of the cheapest stats in a game and turns into an AD Carry at 3.5k health
why was elise, ryze and sejuani nerfed lol
Elise and Ryze are overall buffs (Ryze current live values are 15 lower at all ranks than on this iteration of PBE) Sejuani is a bit of a power shift and nerf. Probably nerfing the ult because a 90% is pretty obnoxious even if you outplay it.
Not really, only if you forget that her ult used to freeze everyone regularless... LIKE MUMU's ult.
So why is 90% obnoxious?!
Because it is an easy to hit skillshot with a fast projectile speed. 90% does a lot of the jobs that the stun would do. It shouldn't be so forgiving to people who mistime it.
Sejuani's ranked winrate is nearly 60%. She was LCS material BEFORE 5.5; which is a buff to tank junglers. Sejuani is a Tank Jungler.
She was OP as it was. She's been buffed to insanity now.
Not just LCS material, she's actually been played in LCS to great success by Diamondprox.
Wait so is that a nerf or a buff to elise? Also Bard Buffs. Did not expect that.
