lackluster champion design(one dimensional builds and overuse of mobility and CC), a general change in artstyle to a more 'epic' look that completely abandons the old cartoony feel, the slow death of the support, a general downgrade in the level of communication with the community(how often do you see Guinsoo or Tryndamere on here anymore?), and a whole host of other problems have really steadily worn down my ability to enjoy this game.</td></tr></table>
I'd like to talk about your points a bit.
Regarding both one-dimensional builds and the "slow death of the support", I really hope you at least take a peek at our upcoming announcements about the S3 balance changes. There's a lot of stuff there, not just stuff for Assassins. :P
Regarding the cartoony feel--I'm a huge proponent of cute champions (if it wasn't obvious). I can understand getting burnt out of badass epic dudes over time. But I still think we've done some good things, with Ziggs and Lulu thing year, and there are some really <s>cool</s> cute things in store! I realize cartoony != cute in a lot of cases, but the core fundamental of "not badass" still applies.
Regarding communication: I definitely disagree. As much as Guinsoo's my Guinbro, he's not the only designer, and we have a bunch of awesome dudes interacting with the community every day--not the least of which is our dear Brorello. I mean, Xypherous is personally fielding tons of inquiries about the new item changes, and we've only scratched the surface!
In the end, Season 3 really is a turning point for LoL, and if you've come this far, I think it'd be a shame to not at least see what we've been cooking up for so long.
