I really don't understand how the people of Riot can't take a step back with each champ they're releasing and go "Well, we didn't want mobility/CC creep to ruin our game or our games to last long periods of time by stalemating, but here's a champ with 3 types of CC and a giant gap closer that can almost windwall every type of damage, man we're messing up our game".

You guys keep doing this with each champ you release, and then you try to buff summoner spells that aren't flash because champs like braum can take flash and cover 1200 units on a map in under 2 seconds, while champs like Anivia/fiddles/ryze/garen/ashe/annie/etc are all stuck heavily relying on flash while these new champs get to take heal/barrier/exhaust instead and still completely **** on the mobility of all of your older champs. It's pretty confusing and it seems like you guys don't even really know what direction your game balance is heading anymore.

With the release of every new champ, another old champion gets left in the dust and you all continue to do nothing about it. It's to a point where i rarely even want to log on anymore.

your wrong on one thing...when you said "with the release of every new champion an old champion gets left in the dust" you should have said; "with the release of very new champion TEN old champions get left in the dust

You mean the champ that can put out burst rotations that are enough to kill you about every 5 seconds, with 2 or 3 types of CC? Or how about Yasuo, who can dash to a new target every 2 seconds late game while having an incredibly overloaded kit that is almost uncounterable late game. Or how about new remade gragas, with all the tankiness and initiation in the world, as well as all of the disengage also? Or how about buffed Ziggs, who can nuke your entire team an entire map away from a team fight while split pushing once he gets 3 items? Or remade leblanc who can port every 6 seconds and pretty much never be caught, or if she is, she can still kill atleast one person before dieing if she was mentally capable of passing the first grade?

EDIT, IM NOT SAYING VELKOZ IS OP, IM SAYING HIS KIT IS OVERLOADED.

I really can't figure out any plausible way to stop mobility creep this far into the game though. You can't really just go back and give Annie, Anivia, etc. mobility spells.

So basically, what you're saying is...
You NEVER had any idea what balance is.

You'll be downvoted into oblivion because every champion is perfectly balanced in GD world.

But what you're getting at is correct. These infrequent patch cycles and slow reworks mean that it takes a looooong time for older champs to catch up to how overloaded the mechanics are on newer champs - if they ever do.
