@Riot Why Rework Sejuani?

First and foremost, Sejuani sucked in Season 2. Really. It was incredibly painful to jungle and no reason to pick her over Nautilus. However, in Season 3 she is quite strong. She has fast clears past the first one and gets faster without ANY damage items. If you go full tank your W can do ~200 damage per second (1200 over the course of the ability). She has a lot of CC with an ult similar to Amumu's (and is arguably better because you can E after it, making it so that they are either stunned or slowed for 4 seconds). Her Q is a reliable gap closer AND escape. And she has multiple build routes, if you feel you need 1 damage item you can easily buy Liandry's (although her W does ridiculous amounts of damage without Liandry's).


So my question is why rework her? What is she lacking that you need to fix? I feel she is in a good place right now due to the changes in Season 3.

Well now it's her turn to be OP-must-own-for-ranked status. Once everyone does own her, she'll get nerfed again.

She might be strong, but I haven't exactly seen a ton of her even on streams. What elo are you seeing this in? Maybe she is popular in certain elos?

It was stated that she isn't having balance issues, there are other things wrong with her that people would like dealt with.

She hasn't been reworked yet you dumbo.

People = Riot.

Those who use her now don't care about those "issues".
Those who aren't using her now will be using her as soon as she becomes OP, like 90% of the community.

You're absolutely deluding yourself if you think it's okay that the Frost mark should be reduced by Tenacity or that her early game Q cooldown feels good.

She needs tuning, even if she's okay balance-wise. Some parts of her feel clunky.

She's my main, heck I can assure she's great in the right hands. But she isn't without annoyances.

As someone who is playing Sejuani a lot..
I can say that in Season 2, she was not very strong. She is very item reliant, but with the changes in Season 3, she is much stronger.
I actually think she is fine the way she is now. Altho, giving her a shield and then not actually use it seems odd to me, but hey. It's a shield. Why not?

EDIT: I also follow a guy named Heaventime. He mains Sejuani in 2k elo. Yup.

I've been trying to learn to be a better Sejuani, do you have any demos I can check out sometime? Thanks.

It's less about Sejuani's balance and more about her theme as a champion. Sejuani's always been a sore point for Riot due to how nothing about her design is clear to her role or purpose as a champion.

Things like "Bristle has no momentum when he rams" or "far north barbarian woman in a plate bikini" or "wields a huge mace and rides a giant boar but is a mage"
