oh X champion is a litte too good in dominion and just about right in SR(you know the mode that is played in all the big tournaments, the mode that all the pro players stream, you know, the mode thats played the most?) but since hes too good in dominion we're gonna nerf him in SR just cus.

So you build mana tank kassadin on SR? Or do you build AP?

The goal of the Kassadin change was to avoid affecting his most potent SR playstyle (or buffing it) while nerfing his most potent Dominion playstyle.

Just because Riot's throwing bones at us doesn't mean Riot plans on hurting the largest mode in the game-they'll be careful to ensure that any changes made to balance Dominion only nerf champions on the modes where they're too powerful.

The goal of future Urgot and Yorick changes is to ensure balance in all modes of the game, since Riot also notes that they're problems on Summoner's Rift. Because of that, changes to them will attempt to make sure they're balanced on both Dominion and Summoner's Rift.

*shakes out a Lulu hat full of cupcakes into this thread*

I honestly never really figured out how to correctly execute the tanky Kassadin build, so whenever I play him I usually go CDR + AP with Athenes, Deathcap and Voidstaff.

Seems like this change will make that stronger. Hmmm.

It will at least kill his finishing power. His mobility will still end up being a nightmare, though.
