Why is the attack speed capped at 2.5?

I hear its because most animations get really funky looking if it goes any higher. And honestly how often do you get to 2.5?


Right so since its hard to get to 2.5 anyway why have a cap at all?

Because 0.32 AS is not fun to fight.

To prevent abuse of champions with on-hit effects, like Vayne, for example.

Imagine 6 PD's on Vayne without the 2.5 cap. Nothing lives.

This is what I heard from a red ages ago.

Would that really be stronger? she wouldn't have any ad to back up that attack speed just her true damage proc.

It is due to the fact that is the fastest they can animate the champs with no problems...

Imagine Kog'Maw with Malady, Void Staff and 4 PD.

3+ AS with 40% spell pen.

I'd go with matchmaking, and honestly when I play on hit teemo (which isnt very often because ap is more fun) I average on getting 2.5 atack speed in about 35 min. It only takes 3 items and the right masteries/runes

I remember War3 used to have no real cap. Levelling your agility into the millions made your character spaz out.

In League however, I'd say the problem is on-hits. Get a team of AS boosting heroes (WW, Nunu) and get someone with a good AS steroid, buy Ionic (if it worked) or Madreds and such and proc them many times a second.

So pantheon doesn't man drop a tower and 100 percent it by tanking it with his passive.
