hi morello, I'd like to say I'm happy with the support changes and most of the people complaining about them are just a vocal minority or they don't even play support.

the changes are imo great except for a few things like you said: the skilling for traditional supports is very weak (assuming we're talking about ap scaling...right?) I'm pretty much building full cdr tank/utility tanky instead of ap like I'm sure you guys wanted us to do because in my opinion it's way better than going the ap route.

now I've gotta ask something: what's your stance on annie support?

I have mixed feelings about annie and I'm not entirely sure what her strong point is over other supports, the one thing I've noticed is that "she can zone you out with her stun up forever" but so can every other support.

her ap scaling is cool and all, but pro players aren't building ap on her, they're building full utility on her contrary to popular belief. atleast that's how it is in korea.

she has quite a bit of counter picks or atleast good against her picks.

another thing I'd like to point out is that spellthief edge and it's upgrades are incredibly weak in their current states.

Make a LeBlanc skin please. The champs been out for 3 years now and she only has 3 skins, one of which is holiday skin.

I know you are balance guy and not skin guy but whatever.

I'm still waiting for more than just jax to be a viable bruiser. I'm also waiting for Riot to completely obliterate melee for daring to be on par with other classes.

Is that Morello's job? I'm just gonna yell at him like it is his job.

Morello, there was talk of a "fighter rework" for season 4, you've mentioned it, meddler has mentioned it, certainlyT is supposedly the lead on this project, any info at all on that? Is there still an impending "rework" for fighters coming?

Wouldn't that be due to 3 support items becoming exclusive? (Talisman of Ascension/Frost Queen's Claim/Face of the Mountain). Unfortunately, I think you're a bit too far in to undo this change.

Maybe if you polish up Banner of Command, Twin Shadows, and Ohmwrecker, you can get supports to consider investing in more utility. Personally, I think giving these items easy upgrade paths might help, but I'd need more time to analyze the items to figure out what could be done.
