You know what's funny. Eve probably still rapes new players. The only thing holding her back is the lack of free weeks.

Yi's meditate is hit and miss, if you build AP you lose out on his amazingly strong late game (and he's very, very reliant on getting kills in teamfights with either builds, if you don't net a kill, you're almost useless). Yi also has a very, very specific timing on when he can go in without it being a high risk.

AD Sion is easily shut down before he can reach god tier, he is one of the (few) hyper carries in the game though (Veigar/Nasus/Vayne are just a few others).

Riot nerfed Eve because she was making the game agonizing for new players. Which was true.

Maybe she wasn't even overpowered. For a decently long time, they tried little nerfs here, small adjustments there to try and make this character work. And then one day Morello in exasperation gave a big "**** it" and just erred on the side of caution.

Fun is important to this game as well as balance.


Your actually wrong on that part, she ruined low level and super high level play.

Jungle eve destroyed everyone for the most part.

But when they broke her legs but still kept the stun she ruined high and low level play. In low level play anything can destroy so that's a given. But what about high level play? Well she could camp 1-2 lanes and repeatedly stun the opposing laner letting your teammates get free hits essentially winning the lane for them.

Imagine your mid and at levels 1-3 every 10 seconds or so you get stunned and eat 1-2 spells. Your going to get denied farm and levels as you can't counter-harass that, even if you buy a pink ward that puts you 125g behind and it can easily get removed by eve who is execptionally good at clearing wards.

Yi only heals for 3000 HP instead of 6000 HP, fully countered right?

If your team doesn't put out enough damage to kill ignited AP Yi, you probably weren't going to win anyway.


Lol right, because someone healing 3k over 5 sec while he has 300 armor/MR buff is a pretty easy target.

Tell you what, if he was impossible to CC he would be absolutely unkillable during Medidate. Good thing someone invented something called "interruption". Protip: that's how you take his healing and defensive steroids away and kill him easily, not with raw damage.

A fed Yi is an OP Yi the same way a fed Sion is an OP Sion. Both of these characters have their draw backs with either build, primarily that their kit does not fully support EITHER OPTION. In short, no they are not OP and yes people don't try to determine which route they are taking early on to counter it.

Didn't they change it because it also caused the team playing against Evelynn to literally have to get the wave pushed to under their turret so they could farm in safety?
