Okay i can live with the RYZE buffs but..WTF a JAX buff???????? Please rethink that by the next patch, he was already ridiculously ruining games.

In random pub games, the team that has a sivir usually wins just because of the fact that the other team doesn't have a sivir. WHY WAS SHE BUFFED?!

To explain the logic behind some of the buffs to 'overpowered' characters:

These changes were systematic - we wanted to across the board make characters better at early game combat. We felt in many cases that the problem was either stat based or that abilities deal too little damage at the first couple levels. This problem is fundamental to the game - we want the game to be fun and exciting early on. So, we're fixing this problem.

Might this make some imba characters slightly more imba? Maybe. But it's important to get the game feeling the way we want it to before it's super balanced. This is beta, after all!

In general our design philosophy is to make something fun, then bug free, and then balanced.

As an FYI, we do have a planned remake for Sivir coming soon, as well as possibly Ashe.

So was the point of this patch to make the bad heroes worse (Annie) and good heroes better (Jax, Twitch).

I mean I understand the nerf to Tristana's life, but how does having a refreshing Rocket Jump make ANY sense?

You can't see every change of the champions for its own...we can only say if the changes were great mistakes or not after we played with them...

Should this prototype reconnect work if you BSOD or only if your game crashes? Just wondering since I have a brother that just loves to BSOD
