It'd be about the same as it is right now.

People whine about a champion/item they don't like, he/it gets nerfed.

Rinse n' repeat.

It's balanced around who complains more about what in GD.


Darius isn't OP, GD complains about him- Getting an overhaul

AP Yi never breaks 50% win rate, GD whines- AP Yi gets obliterated.

Don't even get me started on the roller- coaster we call Shen.
They said they were overhauling Darius because he is annoying to fight agaisnt and to have on your team.

But if it was balanced around 800elo he will be lobotomized.

Let me get this straight, you think balancing a game around people who don't know how to deal with something is fine?

If a solution exists to deal with a certain playstyle that means it is balanced, you don't just nerf something because a select group of people are unaware of the solution...

If a champion is curb stomping on ANY elo, should they not be dealt with? Why should any one elo be more important then another. And yes, 800 elo players may not know how to deal with a champ like ap yi, but that doesnt mean he should be left where he is. If there was a simple solution to yi curb stomping elo elo, would it not have already been implemented?

I honestly dont get why people seem to be upset about these changes. They were making the game very un enjoyable to a large amount of people, so it makes sense they should be dealt with, downvote me if you wish, but I still dont see the problem.

I imagine at 800 elo someone counterpicks themselves into a hard counter in lane yet somehow wins lane through some miracle or another. Nothing you see would make sense.

The game is already balanced around 800 ELO, so no changes really.
