That's a good one.

Internal testing only goes so far. That's why they have the PBE. That's why Champions aren't released perfectly balanced.



So in that case, they should be changing him instead of waiting to see what the new items do, and then nerf or buff accordingly "when the dust settles".

If testing internally only goes so far, might as well go ahead and do it for the sake of something that needs it.

If they were to go the way you're saying, and leave him alone until seeing what the new items do, then, in that same junction, it would "make sense" to make a champ without thought to balance, throw them onto Live, and "gather data" about how ridiculously unbalanced they are.

Nowadays it just seems like they don't care about him.

Edit: Actually, not nowadays.

Ever since the nerfs

Riot come clean: Do you not like Talon? Is this why you're silent about him?

To be honest, I think the new Black Cleaver and a Doran's Blade or two are gonna make him the mid-game killing machine he is now even earlier.

I guess they just like ignoring issues with old champs in order to keep spamming us with new ones
