The only part of the patch that sounded good was the increased range for Sivir.

We'll see how this plays out.

tbh I don't mind the changes to pots. I never bother attacking people with pots, because they will heal up again. Now I can get people down to 1/4 health without them coming back up to full 5 seconds later!

To respond to everyone's dismay I have often stated there need to be different items, rules, and scaling in ranked vs casual play. The two game types play so differently applying the same patch changes usually adversely affect one or the other. For example the minion damage nerf - in ranked it takes away strategy as well as a potential barrier between you and your opponent allowing far more push from a champion with superior range or sustain and in casual normal games with new players this can be argued as a good move. I think its due time ranked and normal have different rules of engagement and go even as far as having items available in one game type and not in the other or at least a different version. Lot's of work yes but I dont think anyone can disagree that the skill level and understanding of the game varies and if you keep going easier and easier to suit new players you ruin the competitive fun for those that have perfected their role for ranked.

So everything is easier. So the next hard choice to make is which champions to choose so we should ditch that just have 5 mirror matches with no minnies and bot control.

Please keep balancing the game off summoners who aren't level 30 and who haven't earned enough IP to purchase the correct runes to allow them to successfully/efficiently jungle/gank [i.e. people who haven't played enough games/lack experience].

Im looking excited to the more aggressive approach. Would actually like to try and force the other person out of lane easier.
