You idiots realise that people were capable of getting 4k+ health since, I dunno, the launch of the game? And will continue to be able to do it even if/when one item (warmogs) is nerfed?

Of all the things to complain about... Xelnath, you didnt exactly pick the best words, implying that this is a 'fix' for health stacking, but I didnt think GD was this dumb. This is a good addition to the ui, has nothing to do with the power of warmogs.

I also find this ironic that they used an Amumu (broken champ) model with the name 'Towerkiller'.

Because they know towers are ****ing useless when you have more health than a tower at level 7, and Amumu is ****ing broken to boot.

Insult to GD's injury.

Good subtle trolling on Xelnath's behalf.

Alright, I'll be the one to ask.

What exactly is a "Wizardlock, right hand of the 7th order of obsidian blackfire ebonstone dark Witchlords"? And what are its job duties?

It's simple and elegant. Very easy to read.

We're all just bitter because this game is very quickly turning into World of Warcraft PVP - CC trains and Tanks dominate everything, there's no room for skill or squishy champs anymore.
Thing is adc is still the most important part of a team
if adc wasnt the most important thing we would see bruisers bot

Exactly, APen and AD rune, mastery, and item buffs is the only reason that people use Warmong's. And Warmong's is the reason the burst mage is super weak. So it was Riot's attempt to over buff the ADC that ruined the game, not Warmong's.

But how many people actually built Warmog's on a regular basis?

Compare that with how many people you see build a Warmog's every single game in S3.

I know you said your topic title in jest, but it's not a joke to people man. It's sucks having to play this boring stale meta full of health. It's not tomorrow, it's right now. It's not funny.

Makes sense. Keeps everything simple and doesn't make people learn something new. Other than the black bars meaning 1k hp.

You mind telling me how often you saw champions build Warmog's, Locket and Sunfire Cape? Add Black Cleaver, that's 21000 bonus HP in a build that's relatively popular right now on quite a few champs.

Health stacking is a lot more prominent in S3 than it was in S2. It's rise in popularity is the main reason why Riot has revisited their approach to health bars, I think.
