Riven is a pretty bad pick right now, the flood of new bruisers has made her obsolete

In tourney play she's hard-countered too severely by 2v1 lane swapping shenanigans.

She's beat by coordination and good lane control. But if you don't have these she will walk all over you.

Has Riven nerfs been confirmed? Thought xypherous only said that manaless champions were OP. Why does it make sense to nerf Riven when she is almost useless in end game team fights. Yes her ult is OP. However her ult does nothing in terms of defense. CC'd, out range her, stun her and it goes to waste. If your over 60% hp her skill shot does not do much. Yes she is great one on one. Maybe 2 on 1 but in team fights, she is focused hard and put down hard. I am a Riven player. Most games that i win i snowball and just harrass their team with my quick in and outs. However in team fights it sometimes is hard for me to participate.

CD increase on Riven's ult has definitely been confirmed. Nothing else.

Riven is really good, but underplayed, which is how it should be.


I've played riven quite a bit the past few days. I really like her and I usually win game with her too. She snow balls at a fair rate.

xypherous has confirmed riven nerfs, that's why we are quiet, we know they are comming

He never confirmed anything. He just said that he personally doesn't like the CD on her ultimate. Not to mention he doesn't work with the live design crew which handles nerfs and such, he's working on itemization atm.

He confirmed top lane nerfs not Riven nerfs.


xypherous: "Riven's ult has no earthly reason to be on that low of a cooldown"

Riven doesn't really stand up all that well in teamfights.

She does well in lane, ok, but not that amazing.
