Why do we get the threads from Riot asking what is wrong with a champion?

Now if you evolve Kha'zix W, it can strike allies and give them a temporary GA upon death.

However... they respawn as Draven until they die.
That's massively overpowered. Well done.

All Dravens get massively increased damage the closer they get to eachother.

If they manage to touch completely, [redacted].

You can do this for next April fools which shall henceforth be referred to as "Draven Day". We need lots of Draven-creating abilities.

Why are ranged hyper carries acceptable but melee hyper carries problematic?

As a player who loves melee champions, I dislike that ranged carries early weakness is completely negated by the support duo lane concept.

Also we could use some offense+defensive melee only items? Things that make up for the fact that melees have to walk into more aoe damage or that they can be abused by the zero turn time (zero dps loss) adc kiting that exists in the game.

As for the fluctuations period, you need to check history from a good bit before her rework was announced-- particularly in Normals where she was mostly played.

But I mean you're clearly changing your story to make a champion you like sound more powerful.

None of those stats indicate "overpowered" 'second highest winrate'.
Elophant has her as the 2nd highest win rate across all regions/divisions. None of the 3rd party stat sites are 100% accurate though, so I don't know what your getting hung up about. However you slice it her win% was well above average, which would indicate her power level was fine.

Wow this is ridiculously disappointing to read, having all the Talon threads ignored was one thing but reading this and knowing for a fact that the designers don't understand the crux of Talons issues is even worse in a way.

Talon doesn't get his 'butt kicked in lane', he is very strong in lane against AP mage type champions. His issue is he can only lane against AP mage type champs successfully, otheriwse you're right, he gets his butt kicked. Think about other assassins, Zed, Kha'Zix, Akali, Diana. They can all be run toplane as well, Talon can't be run top, why not? Answer that and you'll understand why Talon is not in a great place. He's an extremely niche pick that has trouble fitting into team comps, he's an AD caster who can ONLY be played in the lane where you traditionally put your AP caster, forcing a reshuffle of your team to fit that AP damage back in, he is EXTREMELY susceptible to lane switches, because of his completely inability to lane against anything he can't threaten with his burst.

Seriously, the fact Talon hasn't been picked in EU LCS, NA LCS or OGN (One of around 15 champions with that status, many of them in line for reworks) is not concerning at all to you guys? You think the best players in the world won't touch him with a 10ft pole isn't reason to maybe take a closer look at him? Instead we get "Well golly gee, he wins a lot in blind pick!" Geez louise.

Well, my point was very simply that Old Sejuani wasn't "overpowered".

Well to be honest it mostly seemed to be Xypherous trying to figure out how melee autoattacks can take skill and how multipath champions can add to the fun.

He seems to come on the forums when he's not sure what to do.
(And sometimes right after something's already finalized. But it didn't seem that way this time.)
