Based on what we see in the Chinese tournaments, Ezreal largely suffers from a perception problem of comparing raw DPS and how applicable it is. I think he's pretty balanced, but since US and EU players saw god-mode Ezreal, anything short of that will be perceived as weak (even if the final result is not).

Ez lacks in all area's compared to other ad's. He has low utility low dmg and no better mobility then other ad's. He also has a weak steroid that is hard to utilize early game.

ez's prob is that most new AD carries scale with AD on all their spells..
ez has 2 spells that become rather useless DAMAGEWISE when going ad.

That makes people think he's useless.

I think he is fine although it would be nice if his late game Mystic Shot scaled a bit better.

I agree with morello, a good Ez ruins my day every time.

I love Ezreal, and he does a fair amount of damage despite not being able to build crit, or at least not ideally.

However, don't you think his mana regen and/or mana costs could use some tweaking, at the very least? I run MRegen yellows AND blues, and still can't kill either enemy bot lane before going OOM if soraka is picked. His costs seem severe even when looking at him from an AP build perspective.
