almost always picked or banned =/= broken

Your logic falls there.


Broken champs are frequently to always picked or banned, but frequently to always picked or banned doesn't mean broken. Being broken often constitutes the pick-ban-or-lose-to kind of setup, but being popular doesn't mean they're broken.

His logic is fine.

Also, good show, OP.

shen was conceptually always a problem because he was tanky champ with a global ult that shields... i mean think about it. however, before he gained the -50% damage on each taunted target he wasn't tanky - hence a troll pick.

amumu isnt really flawed by design. janna, galio, and gragas exist in this game for a reason.

the crank isn't necessarily flawed. he just needs some higher mana costs so his passive doesnt get out of control early.

Poppy is broken by design with no counterplay at all late game.
She isnt OP.

This is how I felt about Evelynn before her rework. Nerfed to the ground, below ground, so far under not even I thought she'd come back from being the butt of all league jokes.

It took 2 years. 2 YEARS for them to do anything to Eve. No tweaking, no QoL buffs, no slight buffs before then. Just waiting. I waited, and now I LOVE Evelynn again.

The point of that was, that there are times where you just have to keep being patient. Some champs kits are very hard to stabilize.

Blitz: It's not just the grab (it's the most frustrating, though), but the combo of everything he can do, without having a "this is what he can't do" section. I actually wish the "Overdrive/Underdrive" debuff thing could come back.

Shen: Shen.....is quite an annoyance. However, he is a tank, and tanks can be dealt with through their laning phase. Sadly, our meta isn't "Nuke the **** out of someone and starve them till they give up completely" because the game is balanced around coming back from bad starts. And his ult is pretty sweet. Turning bad skirmishes into favorable comebacks, and if his laner doesn't have hard cc, or wasted it, Shen can just get away for free. Also, jungle Shen. Good luck stopping him when you don't know where he is.

Lastly, I hate amumu. I wish every jungle Amumu would die to the wolf camp/golem camp, regardless of level.

How the hell would you know if there is or isn't an attempt? You trash Riot for their actions yet you don't even KNOW what they are actually doing, and so you assume nothing is being done.

Champs you listed aren't Op, they're simply annoying.

Shen is fine. Wtf are you smoking OP.

I can't figure out why he's ever banned.


Gobal teleport and good laning is a little unfair.

i would like small buffs here and there like 1 base armor for some UP champ, .05 ap ratio, etc etc.

however, balance in that sort of a way gets hard to determine true balance from placebo effects.

Are you ready for this? Are you ready for how I know? Really? Ready?

I read the patch notes.
