I prettymuch love everything about this patch, with 2 exceptions.

1. No Thresh yet. *sadface*
2. Turrets prioritizing Champion "Pets".

I really love Thresh as a champion, and simply can't wait for his release.

As for the second thing, this makes me sad, since I main Elise and losing my spiderlings makes my ability to murder Turrets much less effective. *sadface*

Otherwise it's an awesome patch ! Love the Rengar buffs, and the Vi bugfixes. Looking forward to playing them after this patch.

Other than that, great patch riot. im waiting for this new ranked system cant wait to try it out.
shes weak as **** and has bad late game and now with high mana costs and no range on her ult she can't lane for ****, anything done to her in general is going to piss people off, 3 years of nerfs no skins, and kids who some how still die to her even though she is squishiest champ in game and cannot nuke nearly as hard as Leblanc veigar or any other decent ap mid, and she just keeps getting worse.

just stfu and will sit back and watch for your QQ when your darious becomes just a tad less op and u flip the fk out

i didnt think diana needed a buff. i had a bit of trouble adjusting to her after her nurf, but she was still playable. 12kills 3deaths 18assists. just people were still playing her for kills, but if you play her right and use her to get assists you still win the game. laning phase was easy, shield still good but not to the point where she was unkillable. i think people were still playing her like she could kill everyone, instead of player her as if she was on equal footing with other champions. kinda makes me sad that people dont take the time to learn dianas mechanics and just want to Q~R kill someone with 4000 HP and say, "yeah, i have league skills. i belong in diamond".

Blitzcrank OP? Time to nerf Evelynn!

Honestly... Riot, you have been doing nothing but nerfing Evelynn in recent patches and it is annoying. I agreed with the Evelynn nerf around the end of season 2, because she was genuinely too bursty and powerful, but now this is just getting ridiculous.

The season 3 patch has made Evelynn MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE, thanks to the increased price on DFG. I was okay with that, because I can work with that. With the recent nerfs though, Evelynn is only a great assassin if she gets fed early, or farms A LOT early game thanks to the extra price of necessary items, putting her in the same boat as most other champions. So I truthfully think she is balanced as she is. I mean she is so squishy late game that she fits the role of assassin perfectly. These nerfs that make her ult lesser range and less damage will only make it harder for her to do her job, because her ult is her initiation tool, so if she has to now initiate without the use of her ult, she is not nearly as viable in team fights any more. Also, her increased mana costs and lesser base damage on ravage will make it much harder in early game middle, maybe even impossible. She stands perfectly even as it is with most middle AP champs, if not a little weaker, without the nerf of her damage and extra mana costs of farming with her Q.

I normally don't judge your nerfs, but come on Riot. You are taking a nearly completely balanced character and nerfing her, just because some people know how to use her well, and the noobs of the game scream OP everytime she gives a gank.
