brand's rework that you posted isn't that great, you wanted it so that you don't always pick the same skills in the same order, yet his q can only work if other abilities are used first.
I didn't read everything you wrote yet but so far I more or less agree with you. The things you brought up are things I notice myself. I much more enjoy champions that both concept and theme are strong and you can feel it reasoning within them.
I think you are a little to nitpicking at times though.
I completely agree with Xerath or Maokai. At first when I read long range mag I was hyped. Ez is one of my favorite champions, because of his kite and long range assault. I was really disappointed that his range wasn't really that great and I wish his ulti would actually worked like Kog's. Kog is more of a living artillery than Xerath sadly. Also Maokai's Twisted Advance always seemed off to me. It wasn't matching with his design at all.
About Zyra and Brand. I understand what you mean but I think they already make Zyra pretty distinct and unique. Her plants combos are like Hermi's turrets but better and actually her whole kite is basing around it. Say what you want, but she isn't one of flowers you water with care. She is wild meat eating plant that groves wildly and eat you whole. I think they made decent job at her. Also I disagreed with Brand. He might spreed fire, but firing a fireball or making pillar of flame spreads fire as well. It's freaking fire. I get it is just generic skill but in this case it fits perfectly. And remember that every skill leaves his passive, so he is always spreading it. Also combos using his passive are one of things I like about him most. You can use them different in different situation and utilize them as you want. It gives him a lot of chooses, like you want, right? I wont argue about "awkward stun" since not always everything makes perfect sense in games. It's still game and need some balance, like this skill slows even thought it normally doesn't etc.
Ok I started reading random champions you redesign and you mostly redesign for sake of redesigning or completely miss the point. I how feeling like you have no idea about those champions. I like you reasoning but when you apply it to champions who really has problems. In my opinion you wasted a lot of time for unnecessary redesigns. No wonder Riot doesn't post here. You are not as smart as you think. Not all your points are worth reading. If you are doing it as hobby, go ahead, but don't expect someone will make LoL2 basing on this. Also don't force your opinions on others.
