Anyone else tired of the Overtuning?
 
Riot's balance logic lately has been "X champ has been popular for a short period of time, let's nerf it"

What happened to the long periods of time allotted for gameplay to evolve and develop naturally? It seems like having your hands in the balance jar every 2 or 3 days is becoming incredibly detrimental to gameplay.

yes, very tired of it.

this is why i'd rather see all inclusive balance patches every 2-3 months (nerfs to strong/buffs to weak) or so while only saving small patches for things that are legitimitely overpowered/bug fixes.

the current system takes away too much of the thought of playing where your best skill is to read patch notes. boring.

Not really. I'm not entirely convinced they're overtuning, really. But, that doubt mostly comes from the fact that people in general completely overreact to every nerf that happens. Someone loses 5 damage IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD, THEY'RE NO LONGER VIABLE WHAT ARE YOU DOING RIOT? Hell, I remember when people seriously thought Ez would become useless after they took away his AS slow. That sure happened. I honestly can't tell if they're overtuning or if people are just way too reactive to every change.

I want to tattoo this on my back

balance change and nerfs every patch has stopped me from taking this game seriously or spending any money on something that i don't know if it's going to be trash tomorrow

Me too. Combine this with the fact that the game still isn't balanced so you HAVE to pick the best champions... it adds up to being forced to keep purchasing new champions with a half life of about 4 months.

This may or may not be intentional on Riot's part.

I'm really douting the skill level and thinking of how to nerf things. Seems like they just slam the nerf bat right into some popular champions face while all they really needed was a slight tap on the shoulder.
