@RIOT Why can't other classes have a late game fantasy that compares with marksmen?

AD+AS+Crit is a huge commitment to build, as at minimum you'll need 3 pure damage items that don't really pay for themselves until you have all 3 and can reliably autoattack stuff in a fight, thus you don't see anybody except marskmen building these items.
Downvoted cause right. People don't like ADCs, even though they are a pretty weak class right now.

the reason other classes don't have a late game fantasy that compares with Marksmen, is because Marksmen get totally **** on by literally every single other champion role in the game for the first 40mins of a game right now.

if a Marksman succesfully gets a full 6 item build somehow, you deserve to get ****ed up real nice (oh, and btw, if their team doesn't focus all effort into protecting them, they still die in <1 second to any champion type in the game who manages to get in dmg range of them).

This is pretty interesting conceptually. However, it would make itemizing against ADC's rather difficult.

Very elegant solution. It gives every one a role to play during all points in the game, which seems to be the direction Riot is heading. Less about when a champion is good, and more about how a champion is good.

Edit: I also believe it would open the way for more viable melee carries as well.

Interesting read, you explained the problem well and offered a solution, which is great!

I am not a designer so can't speak to the validity of the problem or solution but certainly enjoyed reading this as a LoL player.
