@Morello, can you explain the design philosophy used for nerfing champions?

What about Eve's Glitchy ult, where when you press it, it doesnt go off for a good 3-4 seconds of spamming the button, im actually not sure if its just me, but i tried on smartcast, smartcast w/ indicators, and normal and it does it on all for me...

I don't know if you're still reading this, Morello, but thank you for looking in to all this. It speaks a lot for Riot's dedication when the community's concerns are addressed so quickly and readily. I personally am glad that both player and developer can have rational conversations like this.

As someone who likes playing Rumble mid, believe me, people sometimes think to try it. But a good portion of the time the others on the team will complain in pre-game chat because "Rumble's a top! OMFG! GG!"

I wonder what Morello thinks of Katarina. GD has expressed their thoughts, I wonder what he thinks about her power level and state of balance

Please, please, please nerf Katarina! Her and Darius (who are both from the same camp) are extremely over-picked. Why? Because you really don't need to try hard in order to succeed. I know users who prefer these two champs will "dislike" this post. However, take a step back and think about it.. Why do you use them? And quite honestly, Garen has become quite a problem as well. Perhaps take some focus of your Pridestalker and realize he is the least of your problems as of now. Even Kha'Zix could use some attention... The list could go on. I do have to say though.. THANK YOU for nerfing Teemo. He needed that badly.

@Morello, mah brutha

I understand nerfing the damage on Zyra's passive, but the godamn missile speed?

This was never an easy skill to land in the first place, i have played a lot of Zyra and so far i've only hit a single passive shot on someone who was possible DCed. I was never no Pro but this seems unwarranted and exaggerated.

I'd also appreciate it if you took measures to have her remain viable as a mid laner. That's how i love to play her and i believe that's what you had intended for her but from what i can tell most of her games are now as a support.

I honestly think all you guys need to do is make her costs higher.
Her free harass in lane is ridiculous.
A lot of people get chalice, you don't even need it.

Hey Morrello, I was just wondering why when you nerfed zyra that the plants weren't hit at all. In my opinion, the plants were and still are the most overpowered/strongest part of her kit, and kinda similar to yorick gouls. My point is, when you nerfed her ap scaling on q,e,r she transitioned primarily to a support where her plants still did all the damage they did in mid, but didn't take up a ap carry's place in the team. I think the problem with the plants is that the only difference between a rank 1 and rank 5 w is cdr, which means that she has 3 abilities maxed at level 13 & 2 at level 9. i would have liked to see damage scaling in the plants, so that if you wanted the zone control you could max them, but if you wanted burst you could leave it to last. maybe something like (+2/3/4/5/6 per level) with an ap ratio of (+0.08/0.11/0.14/0.17/0.20).


thoughts?
