That's a valid issue, my concern is that RNG Crit maximizes benefit on marksmen with the most AA modifiers though, and their dominace, while pretty much everyone else using critical getting sub optimal use due to building defense, having to hide in brush to engage maybe... standing around being supressed by ranged attackers, in top lane who would naturally be expending their crits on uncontested farm.

It's an appeal to make Crit a stat more useful for everyone else, and add several variations to the way crit is gained and applied with skills and items... extra crit gen on hit, when hit, or escalating crit damage over time when critical strike is withheld, things like that on items with crit gen would make it a lot more involved than... auto attack, hope your RNG beats theirs, and hope your getting adequat value out of it if your not able to stack all your equipment toward 3 or 4 dimentional AA scaling...

I lived in Kanazawa-ishi, Kanazawa briefly as a foreign exchange student.

My favorite foreign food was... melon soda. And ramen. Like, the proper, soy or butaniku broth kind.

I cant imagine you take everything on here seriously or else everyone would be nerfed into the ground.
Anyway gooodnight peeps im out
There's a balance between outcry and actual issues. Tl;dr - you still gotta use your judgment.

I rely on the forums a little more than the average Rioter, I guess.

Could you go into any more detail about how Bruisers are a "mistake?" Are there any bruisers that currently have a good kit that could be seen as a model for where they should have gone, in your opinion?

Xelnath,

Do you love the Expendable Movies as well as the Fast and Furious franchise? Either way can you just say yes?

I imagine they have players of all skill levels, from Wood VIII to Diamond I.

After all, they do try to balance the game at all levels of play. They don't always succeed, but I do have to give them credit for trying.

Instead of delving into your personal life, I would appreciate your opinion on my favorite champion: Talon.

I conversed with Xypherous for a short time, and it seems that the stats you(Riot) have available to you suggest he's at least in a decent spot, if not better. I'm not a very skilled player by any means, but skilled enough to see what works and what doesn't. Talon is in an awkward spot in the meta, being an AD caster assassin, and he feels lackluster in his game play if he doesn't steal half his team's kills and set back the carry(s). I don't want a Talon rework, because I believe he is so very close to what he not only needs but is meant to be. I just cannot figure out what could make him a bit more friendly to the game without costing him his purpose and usefulness.

Do you have any thoughts or insights on this?

Xelnath,

Favorite anime?

How much does Japanese culture inspire your champion design?
