I've seen you do it before, shift some numbers around to lower base damage and increase ratios to scale into late game? I'm not talking release Xin, I've been around long enough to remember that nightmare/dream.

But it would be nice for him to scale at all, maybe something closer to the Olaf department. Everybody likes Olaf right? I like Xin, I think he's got good mechanics for jungling, but he's REAL strong 3-10 and very unrewarding around the 11-18 mark.

Anyone else think Xin could use some early to late game number rearranging?

EDIT: I know it's really popular to downvote any champion-change discussion threads but try to resist. It's just discussion. And this isn't even a nerf/buff. Equal...just different.

EDIT2: Or just keep downvoting. Classy GD. As always.

except for the fact that he is one of the only champs left that can effectivly peel an adc

Really good initiate and CC for a fighter/carry/assassin. Are you sure you're optimizing your items well?

I actually think Xin is in a decent spot in his current state. Still an early game monster, but Riot actually gave him a bit of scaling so he doesn't just drop off the face of the map. And some innate armor pen. And a much more useful ult.

you might be right, however i feel like he's pretty universally known for strong early, falling off late game (like leblanc). building straight damage might help but i feel like he's insta-dead if he's not built bruiser.

Im actually confused by this thread.

Xin is actually alittle too strong currently...

Before it was like "OMFG his early game so strongk wtf I do???.... oh cool...he has no late game".

Now it's like "OMFG his EaRlY GAmE So StRoNgK WTF!!?!? ... OMFG HiS LaET GaME STrOnGk Too aANd So muCH CC/IAS/CDR OMFG".

Xin needs a nerf not buff... if you think he needs a buff... please ... dont play ranked for atleast a year, ur not ready.

the best part of this is that u didn't read what i said at all. i said he doesn't need a buff, but instead i would trade some of his early game OP for some better endgame. same power level, it's just poorly distributed.

Tanky-DPS should snowball less not more. It's why toplane is such a cluster**** nightmare.
