You talk about reworking to maximize champion potential yet the recent changes to Evelynn destroyed her ability to play mid.

Can we ignore Rengar, and look at a more pressing issue, It's called reworking Gangplank, a champ that hasn't been viable since never. or the dawn of time, idk pick one.

Why do we do reworks?

Because it is in our nature.

So...does this mean Talon gets a rework?

The champion's kit is bland (there's no choices, no counter play, just W->E-Q->R).

In his niche role he's out performed (AD assassin? Take Zed, or Kha'Zix).

His "theme" is also lacking.
*Knife assassin? Meet Katarina
*AD Mage? Pantheon, Zed, Kha'Zix, Riven, etc
*Anti-Mage? Kassadin, to an extent also Malzahar and Soraka

This guy doesn't really sell to anything, I really like the "idea" behind him but..he doesn't live up to ANY fantasy, be it gameplay, mechanic or visual.

I feel Akali fell into this situation multiple times. Any news you can share about her? I'd hope she'd see a rework soon, even if it wasn't a major overhaul.

I'll take that as a promise, thanks for the response Scruffy, appreciating it!

What?! Okay well please keep us in the loop, I've been doing all kinds of forum searching for tidbits since he said "Be on the lookout for the upcoming thread, where we'll have everything up to date."

I'm excited to see Rengar come back for more then just a triple Q threat phase he's in right now!

You consider leblanc a healthy assasin or she might need some work?
Not really complaining about her, just think you could execute her theme better

I don't know what the new taric ult will be, but I do think it's a pity that the few champions who could apply ap steroids seem to be losing them. First Lulu and now Taric?

Aura carrier has always been one of Taric's main roles, and his ult was the epitome of that. I await the changes with hope, but also with apprehension.
