There hasn't been enough time for the players to develop counterplay.

A champion should be nerfed if: He/She is the best at their role--save situational champ usage. And can do multiple things better than others that specialize. For recent reference...Think release Zyra.

She could out range, out farm and out damage the champs who were uspposed to specialize in those fields.

Talon cannot do that.
Talon is not a better ADC than Corki or Ezreal
Talon is not a better bruiser than Garen or Jayce
Talon isn't even clear-cut the best assassin.

Talon was a counter-pick assassin.
He was someone you could pick IF the rest of your team was strong AND you were a counter to their champ.

With the introduction of Season 3 and BC...he became someone you could pick regardless. It wasn't always smart. But you could do it and not instantly lose. It was suddenly socially acceptable to pick Talon. No longer a troll pick to take top. (He lost to pretty much every top champ pre Season 3). Infact all of a sudden he was strong.

Then they nerfed BC. I agree with the nerf.
Talon, Panth, Garen, all them boys stopped giving people 'the business' by stacking 50 of them.
But Talon was still playable! And not at all overpowered. I don't feel he was.
I felt like he was a decent pick. And then strong if you were good with him (sort of like anivia or ryze).


And now this?

It is uncalled for without some buffs.

If you want to take down his damage, at least increase his utility. Let his blink give a longer lasting silence at higher levels. Maybe increase his ult speed boost. Reduce some mana costs.

SOMETHING. Don't just straight nerf him to WORSE than he's been in months.

BC can't do all the work gentlemen.


Edit: tl;dr:

Still mad.

I looked at my private area the other day while playing talon (I don't play league with pants) decided it was underpowerd, I then went mid and faced Syndra. I then found my private area to be overpowered.

Black Cleaver is making Talon as well as every single AD Scaling champion overpowered.

It renders armor completely null.
