As a adc main, Doublift has put it perfectly

Season 3 was just a disaster imo. It caused the game to become even less balanced than it already was.


The only good thing S3 did was make supports more interesting to play (even if half of the new support items are never used). Jungle = trash now. Adc = trash now. Ap = trash now.

Xypherous, what did you do?!

Draven is completely well known to have one of the worst late-game fall offs for an ADC...not really a good point to argue with.

This couldn't be more wrong. Draven has crazy late game damage. However you have to micro his axes and he has no escapes which hurts him.

Ranged Carries have been spoiled as **** for the past 2 seasons, and now that they're in a somewhat balanced state (it's actually possible to finish the game before they become relevant, and it is therefore a choice of whether or not you want to have one at all just like every other archetype) the people who became pros maining an overall imbalanced archetype are starting to not live up to expectations.

It had been broken and stayed broken for so long that people forgot how broken it was and thought it was actually balanced.

Honestly, the quicker ranged AD players adapt to becoming not solely ranged AD, but duo lane farmers, the quicker this transition will be.

@Doublelift: Find the fun again with Blitzcrank + Thresh duo laning. It's a party and a half even without breaking the game via lanternhooks.

You know who has been spoiled longer? Bruisers. They are better than everyone and the only thing holding them back is the promise that in lategame, a bruiser team will lose when ADC melt them. Now that's much less true, and we are seeing Bruisers force out AP carries, because Bruisers can (and always have been able to) outlane AP carries, but even more because AP carries aren't necessary with the increased access to armor pen and reduced armor (but higher health).

All in all, I couldn't disagree more - AD carries haven't been spoiled, their job was only protected because the role of bruisers was so enshrined, and only ADC were able to stop bruisers.

Now ADC characters CAN'T FULFILL THEIR PURPOSE. And at the same time as they become bad, so do AP carries get forced out of mid.

Being a glass cannon (and suffering through 3/4 of the game without relevant damage) should reward with the ability to do scary damage. It doesn't right now.

Except that's completely wrong.

Their purpose has always been to become the dominant factor in games that go to 5+ items. They still do this, and they still do it WELL.

Before, they were able to do it at 2 or 3, and that's what people like you need to let go of.

5+ items.

You mean boots and 5 items right?

That's full build only.
