The difficulty bars set by riot on champions are completely based on Riot Staff's opinions. I would disagree with most of them and my concern is that people will be drawn away from certain champions due to their so called "difficulty" set by riot.
TL;DR Riot pls remove difficulty bar

Cassiopeia is not a god**** 100. I'd give her like 80 at most.

I don't think they add much value, and honestly, they've shifted in meaning over time. What they mean now is 'how likely are you to have an OK first game experience with this champion?'. They used to mean 'how hard is it to master this champion?'. So, they maybe add some limited value for new players to push them away from stuff like Nidalee, Xerath and Anivia, where you generally will have a bad first game experience.

Example: Warwick is low difficulty for first game, but is in the middle for mastery difficulty.
Example 2: Ashe is actually pretty easy at low tier play, but is one of the hardest to master champions in the game.
