Riot, some things will be best, and nerfing EVERYTHING is a terrible idea.

do you expect to make every champ and strat on an equal footing? then what happens when something emerges that is superiour in this supremely unlikely 'balanced' setting? nerf it???

If you want to shift the metagame that is fine. But if you do at least have the decency to explain it to people in a well put together post CENTRALLY LOCATED. Changes that come from upon high with zero explanation only enrage the fanbase. This is evident by all the rage posts on the forums. Either get Phreak or Pendragon or yourself or Guinsoo to explain things or hire someone to do it. You guys claim to be transparent but you come off as making arbitrary decisions that anger people and that only time explanations are ever given occur in 10 different threads that are impossible to find thus further infuriating people.

They are simply trying to prevent any one strategy from being the best at all times. They want there to be as many viable strategies as they can get.

yes, and nerfing the successful strat at the time won't achieve that. this is what the thread is about.

Not when players invest time to learn a specific champion. Not everyone picks them up as easily as others.

It's also incredibly unfair how you buff x champion, make skins go on sale, then nerf them again.

Ya, we know these things.

There is a difference between "obviously overpowered" (see: Visage/Locket combo, pre-nerf Xin) and "really good."

Unfortunately, "really good" means nerfbat too, it seems.

and that's the problem, nothing can be 'good' because that's overpowered, riot don't seem to understand the distinction.
