You don't seem to know what "tl;dr" means.

Yes, downvote education.

Obvious troll is obvious.

Flat out saying

There, I made a message that Riot can use for any content update anyone asks about for a while.

Just replace "X" with the discussion topic.

Does Shaco really need a rework? What's the problem with Shaco as he is now?

If you're all so disastrously unhappy, why do you keep playing the game and posting on their boards? If they are such a disappointment to you, why do you continue to give them your time, attention, and likely for many of you, money?

What he said makes sense to me, trying to rework a champion is a nigh impossible lose-lose/win situation. The champion already has an established identity and set of skills, and if you change them, no matter how much of an improvement it might be, it is a risk and will anger a group of people who will be viperous in sharing their displeasure. Look at the Karma rework and how people STILL complain about her, when by every metric (including competitive play), the rework was a success except to that tiny (one of the lowest play rate champions by a wide margin before remake) group of people who felt super attached to the original kit.

Tell GD that someone is on the table for rework (almost everyone previous to, say, Graves is on this list btw in one way or another as has been said over and over over the past year+) and people hound them about it incessantly. Things get canned...IronStylus told us about a skin, I think for Diana, that was almost done and they just canned the entire thing because it just could never come together to be worthwhile.

If I were them, I would only talk about the things that were guaranteed release and scheduled for less than 2 months out or you just get to constantly be harassed, called lazy, and sneered at by a group of people who have never done the job any one of the people working on the projects have done. We all make a lot of assumptions about what the job entails, but unless we've had a similar job before, we don't know. I will say though that standing up to absorb the harassment of unhappy players is definitely not part of their jobs. In the end that's all you want, you don't want the content out faster...you'd find something else to complain about then, you just want someone to stand up and absorb your negative emotions.

If they're canned, and the public know about them wouldn't it be best to say as much? (Same goes for delays)

Shaco is too problematic and has a decent fanbase, i'd rather not touch him
