As a adc main, Doublift has put it perfectly

The second problem is that by buffing AD items, those bruisers also might profit. Buffing Bloodthirster or Last Whisper also means Talon, Renekton, Riven, whoever else will get stronger.

And let's not forget that they are reworking/buffing Blade of the Ruined King soon. It might help some ADC against the new health stacking meta.

I don't think ADCs are ever going to be completely useless, though I wouldn't mind some changes to Infinity Edge or looking at a few ADCs and giving them some buffs (Trist is already getting some hopefully).
The champion pool that BC is good on has been nearly reduced to only 2 people.

Why should an ADC be able to survive being in melee range without building defense?

The argument goes both ways.

Let see, from memory, in under a min :
- MF
- Garen
- Renekton
- Kha'Zix
- Talon
- Olaf
- Riven
- Pantheon
- Lee Sin

and it's without thinking, in no time, without research...

Already FAR from the "2 champs".

Ezreal still has a 48% win rate, where he was at 53% win rate for the longest time. Stop whining.

Hopefully they will get the botRK changes right so I don't have to hear my lane neighbors complain anymore.

This annoys me. If he were a true professional he would either find a way to continue to dominate as ADC, or he would find a new role to play. Let's use football as an example. The fullback position (as it was in the days of the i-formation) is going away. Fullbacks will have to adapt to the new shotgun-centric offense or be forced out of the game.

Riot and LoL doesn't owe DL ANYTHING. They have created the game, they will continue to guide it in the path they feel is the best, and all of the players have to ADAPT to every change. What if this were 2 years ago and he was moaning the need of ADC going bot with a support instead of mid?

Bottom line: If you were a true professional you would man up and find ways to win, instead of blaming your poor performance on changes that Riot has made.
