There's no real reason to build defense anymore, it's so cost inefficient compared to offense. With the cost changes and pen changes, there's just no point.

then you die 16 times in a game and spend 300+seconds dead, clearly a quarter of the game where you really weren't being offensive...

If two teemos fight each other the one with a Negaton Cloak beats the one with a Void Staff. Defence is fine, it just is no longer the answer to all your problems. Full tank champions are not long immortal and can be killed due to the pen changes.

Balanced builds are now the key, people are just too stubbon to change their ways. It's either Full damage or full tank in their minds.

I would argue that with the inclusion of items such as Zephyr, Mercurial Scimitar and Mikael's Crucible, in addition to the tenacity mastery, CC is less of a problem now than it was before. Very few people are using these items in favor of all the cool damage items, such as Ravenous Hydra, Runaan's, and Black Cleaver... it's a phase that will pass, I think.


And this hits it on the head...
this too...

These two post clearly communicate the craziness as of right now taking place imo.
