Hopefully they nerf defensive items. Nerfing both tanks and tanky DPS is killing two birds with one stone.


It's not tanky items that make tanky DPS broken.

Take YI vs Renekton

Yi moves really fast, and auto attacks really hard. With "Meh" survivability and no CC.

Yi is a Carry


Now Renekton, Renekton moves really fast, hits really hard, is really hard to kill and has hard CC.

Renekton is a tanky DPS

The problem isn't items, the problem is tanky dps champions getting FAR MORE for free in comparison to other champions.

Since tanky DPS are the problem the "logic" course of action riot will take is nerf the defensive items across the board so even if you build 100% defensive you cant get more than 100 armor or magic res.

At the same time limit the maximum bonus AD and AP to 100 and 180 respectively. And just remove Last Whisper and Void Staff from the game since arpen/spell pen are better.

To me its quite simple... Some champs do a ton of damage and while only building tank items. You should not be able to build tank items and carry the team... Morde is a great example of this.. Ppl love him b/c not only can he kill 2-5 ppl but he can survive while doing it.. Riot should pick one.. Either you are a tank or a carry .. Tanky DPS = TankCarry

Tanky DPS has always been a failed concept. Especially in this game where stacking defensive items makes you almost unkillable while you can base damage the enemy team to death.

Start building ranged carries as tanky DPS and then all DPS will be tanky DPS.

You're nuts if you think Renekton can put out close to the amount of DPS that Yi can put out when built correctly.

Just so we are straight here Renekton has 0 auto attack steroids so I have no idea what you are talking about when you say "auto attacks really hard". Meanwhile Yi has 3 auto attack steroids. His passive, wuju, and ult.

Yi is a carry

Renekton, Morde, Mundo, are noob destroyers
