So This Patch Doesn't Do Anything?

    Gotta say comming off two of the best patches in Lor history that had massive gameplay ramifications to the extent of creating a new viable archetype - sundisc.

    The most recent patch essentially does nothing...vaporize is still the most cost effective piece of removal in the game by a factor of 3 fast speed mana.

    And the majority of cards that have been changed have a net 0 impact on the game with Shen being the only successfully tweaked champ for the better.

    Gotta say Riot sure is scared of making the pro players sad these days but surely spinning your wheels with 40 plus card changes with a net 0 impact is essentially a giant waste of your staffs talented time and effort.

    Find your balls again Riot take risks shake up the meta you did it before do it again.

    ‐-----------side note--------

    1. Most of the changes are unintentional buffs for meta decks. Sunlight blade nerfs hits Targon when buff dragon decks were already in decline.

    2. Rock drake lost challenger so now the only decent counter to Annie got deleted, lolz

    3. They successfully nerffed Thralls and Legion deserter recent cancers essentially created as a result of this horrible expansion

    4. They tried buffing Azir Irelia and midrange freijord but it won't be enough.

    5. There's still no reason not to run Annie card piles, she essentially gives any control deck the ability to set your opponent to 14-16 draw you a creature that 2 for ones, and increase your removal by 1 point, and gives you an overwhelm creature.

    Talk about missing the point Riot

    What the patch certainly does is make laugh so hard at Kalista... like image switching life and attack would ever do the trick for such an underplayed and weak champion like her xD

    Oh yeah btw, the patch is already out. I just played against a 3/4 Kalista and got demolished.

    isn't her lvl 1 still terrible? Sure she is more likely to survive until her first lvl 2 hit now but... is that really that big of a deal?

    Well, I would say that playing her on turn 3 feels a lot better. Being a 3/4 does actually matter since she's actually able to block. 3 -> 4 health is no joke.

    Just a reminder that people were initially underwhelmed by patch 3.4 and that patch ended up shaking the meta substantially, so maybe we should all wait before drawing conclusions.

    Well there's only 4 champ changes.

    Heckarim, Irelia, Kalista, shen

    None of the vanilla card changes are impactful.

    Like out of the bunch heckarim is the scariest.

    The game has slowed down to the point that just card advantage plus playing scary stuff is more important then turbo leveling, or high synergy decks.

    Option 2 just control things out.

    Like for me I'll start believing Lor is heading in a good direction again when Swim starts playing and he hasn't touched the game since sundisc the last fun shakeup.

    Because playing decks that do things quickly is more fun then playing decks that do things slowly. Kinda obvious when you put it that way.

    Its why MTG always had things like mono blue tempo, as an alternative to mono red aggro, and 3 color control. Sometimes I don't want every match to be 15 minuite slug fest, sometimes I just want to flip and swing.

    But I'm in the minority burst spells have been nerfed across the board, removal buffed, slow plays prioritized, and there's nothing that can be done about it.

    You living in a cave buddy? Swim quite streaming after it came into light that he was an abusive douche.

    I got to admit I have lived in a cave too.

    For some reason the whole swim controversy never came up to me (proably because I don't use twitter/twitch) 

    I am quite shocked reading what happened but then... the manipulative careless douche image fits him very well since he has been very arrogant for the entire time I knew him from videos.

    thanks for making me aware tho... he deserved to have his career shut down
