Yeah, she needs nerfing. Realistically it is unlikely to happen before worlds. We like for those matches to take place on as stable a build as possible that has been thoroughly tested, so even very good changes can be ultimately risky. We also think it's reasonable for the players to expect that numbers won't go changing wildly right in the middle of worlds.

To clarify, she needs some sort of weakness. If we just lower her damage or something, players may just switch from her to Kog or someone which just substitutes one dominant ADC for another. Ideally we'd like to give her some trade-offs so that you can choose her for her strengths or avoid her because of her weaknesses.

tl;dr esports

This isn't true, since you can stick to Kog. If an assassin gets to Kog, he is dead. If an assassin gets to trist, she knocks him back and kills them.

Difference between Kog and Trist? Trist has self peel, which no adc should have.

Kog outranged trist
If a Zed/Yasuo gets to Trist she's pretty dead (it's not hard for zed to get to trist)

if you dont believe me watch any games in OGN/LPL

How about reducing her base attack speed and attack speed per level? She can be long range but a much lower attack speed means that players will have to be smarter about using their rapid fire.

It's almost like they should make a system where a team can almost certainly make it so that a champ can't even play. I wonder what that would be called?

Give her actual mana costs back
remove the resets from her jump
reduce her base stats heavily

balanced.

F*ck world's and nerf the b*tch. I'm running assassins in the jungle just to be able to delete her. GC, I want you to realize something. Players feel like they've made a VERY positive trade when they trade 1 for 1 with and ADC. I want you to let that sink it.

Trist has already been OP for more than 5 patches, but what we're getting at here is that we're probably going to have to wait until after worlds for the issue to get addressed.

Probably waiting for a new skin for her before they nerf this freelo
