Seriously. W cooldown nerfed at eary levels and shave some scaling off of the generous double jump. Without these 2 crutches the mediocre LeBlanc's die off and only the good ones continue to succeed

ugh... why not improve effects on the ultimate...

Like Mimic Q= Silence
Mimic W= Damage on travel AND return blink
Mimic E= Amplifys all sources of Damage by 20%

You cant just gut something very vital to her gameplay, without word or notice. Shes squishy as is and if her target isnt solo she gets melted. I would be fine if you take her normal Qs silence away...

This doesn't mean you are going to nerf Ahri again, does it? She's supposed to be a mobile burst assassin (or mobile mage, but not so much since the last nerf) and you can't just remove charm without completely reworking her.

Charm is a skillshot that can be avoided, not a silence that you really have no way to avoid like LeBlanc or Kassadin. I think Ahri is safe.

These nerfs are way overboard. Riot does this a lot...

On characters with longer time to kill, less mobility or less reliability by contrast silences are less of an issue.

Plan is to then watch how Le Blanc performs after this change, see whether she's still got a spot as a very mobile, single target burst champ, or whether we need to give her some form of compensation for the removed silence.
Can you at least give it the Kassadin Q treatment where it can still interrupt channels?

"Let's see if nerfing the 45% winrate champ results in her being bad"

Does this mean you think heimer ammumu and swain are OP because of their close to 55% winrates?

I know this champ is good in tourney play, but shes already garbage tier in solo q as your internal stats for sure tell you. you need to buff her somehow or else we have another urgot
