Additional issue: With the decline of AD carries, the roles that thrived on the success of AD carries also fell out of grace.

The AP carry, whose job it was to execute the enemy AD carry is now even more useless than they already were.

The support, whose job it is to assist the AD carry and get him/her fed, has now lost even more control over the game.

In the end, the bruiser determines the outcome of the game. You'd probably be better off switching the bruiser and AD carry's lanes, so that the bruiser has a support to feed him/her.

Overall, problem of season 3: Every class that is not a bruiser has reduced influence on the outcome of a game. Fed AD carry? Fed AP carry? Support doing a great job? No matter, bruiser still waltzes all over them. In season 2, roles were closer to equality in terms of contribution.

I'd like to respond with "because solo que" People fear people doing new things even if its a duoque going bot kill lane. Panth/Xin combo is absolutely devastating but alas it's only for normal blind and such since most people are meta sheep during ranked.

more about randuins cutting her chance to proc i believe the argument is. and removing their ability to escape.

Slows AS, slows movement, and gives a massive HP boost. meaning that with this item an AD carry can be kited.

i think the real problem for ADCs is how hard lifesteal and AS got nerfed.

Now AS is expensive, while the counter to it is not.

%HP and Armor Penetration, learn to buy them and maybe you won't have such a hard time against bruisers, btw bruisers are typically supposed shut down the ADC.

I'm against this post, diamond player my ass you got lucky/carried to be talking this trash, watch competitive play and will see ADC are fine as they are.

Ezreal and Caitlyn are the ADs I'm seeing in tournaments, not Graves. MF makes appearances more often than Graves, and for good reason.

If you care about your elo, play Rumble, Singed, or Miss Fortune. Heck, play Kayle or learn Hecarim. They won't be getting real nerfs for a while.
riot said so themselves thatl olking win percentage means nothing so you can't just state that . ashe gets completely owned byranduins and can't kite anything. you arre seeing cait and ez cuz they are safe adc. one has a long range and the other has a blink with amazing poke. and one should be able to get eko by playing adcs. riot needs to either buff adcs by giving them better items or nerf current bruiser items
