Cause I do.

And riot specifically said they were doing 2 things...

One, is looking into ways to work with burst dps because people do not enjoy dying even faster later in the game.

Two, shen was going to be the last tanky character for awhile because they feel they have that role pretty fulfilled currently. They were looking into releasing a lot more support champions.



Since then...every champion released has been a burst damage character, or a tanky/dps character.

Galio and Urgot is the closest thing to support thus far but aren't really filling the support role very strongly.


So I'm just curious...wtf mates?

They had a change of heart and decided to release more and more champions that are tanky/burst dps.

I also remember when riot said they were going to release champions are "every price point eventually." I'm seeing now that "eventually" was the operative word here... And they also said that they price champions based on difficulty.... Remember when they said Garen was the melee Ashe? Hello 3150????????????? Lol... I really don't take anything Riot says seriously anymore.

I think the only thing they've actually made good on is when they said Season 1 would be released "soon."

janna was released long before this live broadcast event. I'm confused at what you're trying to say.

You expected him to be 450?
Would you honestly like to see Garen in every game?... oh wait.

They said this before he was released...and before the tanky metagame came about and decided garen was op.


One would assume that if he was 450 he wouldn't be half the champion he is currently.

I fail to see your point as EVERY single ranked game I've played for the past month there's been a Garen played or banned.
