Oh, I played with Zhonya back in the beta. I thought he just named himself after the item, not the other way around.

Also, a name that ends in "a" usually is feminine... he should get that checked out.

Congratulations, you've just changed Ryze from not played to unplayable.
This feedback is due to people reading changes as binary - nerfs or buffs. When looking at things as either + or - for the character, individually, this will often lead to misunderstanding of the changes.

What is actually happening here is driving his damage to be more about + mana, lowering his cooldowns, giving + max mana on his ulti (which then increases spell damage) makes mana + CDR extremely attractive if for high damage. These items also typically come with survivability, making him more durable than burst casters since he takes a few extra second to ramp up.

The "nerfs" are adjustments to make him machine-gun without instagibbing whole teams. He's actually now the closest thing to a real caster-carry who can vie for spots vs some physicals, bringing some sustained AOE damage to the table. It's really powerful.

Currently, live Ryze is a poor character because his burst is more comparable to other champions, but has less utility. Since we really don't want bursts larger than our current casters have, this was the best way to differentiate Ryze and not having him compete vs other burst casters.

I encourage people to play several games before passing judgment, and build mana + CDR to really get the most out of it.

Also, huge fail.. nerf to the support items will only really hurt support characters... (CDR dependant...) and no Karma buff? :/
