I'm kinda hoping they focus on reworks (*coough*Gangplank) rather than releases but I have little confidence that that's their focus.
It was their focus for like 3 months at the end of season 3.
The lack of "real" reworks is one reason I quit this game.
Basically when I didn't really play yet lol.
It's not enough to make me quit because I still like the game. Just a preference thing to me.

It's exactly because of everyone whining about balance and reworks that they made the game so goddamn generic and meh in terms of quality.

EVERY champion back in the day used to be OP in one way or another (except Urgot, because fuck Urgot), and starting s3, when LoL became a giant, all the casual fucks started searching for EVERY flaw that might make a champion "OP" and spam Riot to nerf it.

If you think current champions are broken, you should've seen AP Yi's laning phase. Still, it wasn't hard to kill him at all with proper plays and CC. People just declare every champion as OP when they find it too much of a bother to actually THINK of a way to counter them and put some effort into killing them.

Of all the recently released champions, Kalista is the only SERIOUSLY broken as fuck one.

What, do you mean you'd prefer the return of stuff like AP Yi over what they have been doing over the past 2 years ? Yeah because Nida throwing spears from 2 miles away and chunking down 90% of your health was OP and perfectly balanced as well.
L M A O

And no not every champion was OP, so far I think they've done great with the changes compared to what it was like at that time. Yeah because look, they've made outdated champs viable again, added counterplay to stuff like Nidalee and Yi (!!! Oh noes counterplay what do we do they're not OP anymore QQ) and fixed flawed mechanics to prevent abuse.

OF COURSE they have done many stupid changes over time, but honestly I prefer how the game is now, with a couple champions being actually OP because of the changes they're trying to make (I'd say why not) than over a dozen being OP because they were poorly designed from the beginning.
K only thing I actually dislike is how their changes turned the meta into a dps tank fest but I can live with that.

Kalista can't kill tanks.
Aurani
Everyone has their own opinion, and I'm no different. The reasons I mentioned above is why I'll love s1-s2 above all the other seasons, not only because it was more fun to play champions that weren't sterile, generic fucks, but because the community was also more warm and welcoming than it is today, sadly.

What do you mean she can't kill tanks? She can kite virtually anyone in the game and stack those spears to infinity, and suddenly you wonder where 90% of your HP went.

Well she can, but in teamfights it renders her useless since her rend does no damage to tanks; it literally does no damage. In order for her to kill tanks, she has to go for a crit build sacrificing the runaan's which is something only Korean players do. That being said, I do highly prefer going for a crit build with Kalista, she just feels so much stronger and it's a lot easier to carry; no idea why people still go for runaan's, BT, BOTRK.
Aurani
That's true, yes, but before all the teamfights come around the 25th minute mark, she can eat her lane opponents alive, and hopefully get ahead enough so as to not have THAT much of a problem with tanks later on.

It entirely depends, really.

meanwhile, playing ranked on EUW is still as frustrating as ever..
Aurani
Where are you? Silver? Gold? Challenger? :V
Jenny
Currently Plat V since my provisionals went 2-8; previously P1 with average game MMR of D3-- pretty annoying, but I'm not really playing ranked anywhere enough to get out of it anymore after my hands got injured

Speaking of such, when the team just wont end.
Aurani
Suddenly, every Bronze, Silver and Gold player looks at you in disgust as they reflect on the Hell they went through and are currently going through. :p

I know for a fact that every tier can be annoying as fuck, but up there it's not even close to what you'd experience in lower ones, like Silver, where most people reside.
That's the whole reason I only go through my provisionals to see where I'd randomly end up in, and then wait until the next seasons' provisionals to do the same. I just find ranked too frustrating, not because of my own personality (I hardly EVER get down from someone else being a moron - I rather enjoy it and laugh at it), but because of the sheer stupidity most people there are displaying.

I hope you get into Diamond before the end of the season, though. :p

Off-topic:
I'm dying. I'm literally dying here.
Dainesl
I don't even, what is that xD

On-topic: People claim they go through Hell to climb one tier but to be honest that can be traced back to them and how they performed, at least, in my opinion. I wouldn't say it's terribly difficult to climb from, say, Silver to Gold, but failing promos a whole bunch is the absolute worst :c

I know of one dude who failed their Silver 2 -> 1 promos like, 10 times, and then there's me who only failed their Gold 4 -> 3 promos like once...and that dude is still in Silver 2 ;_;
Jenny
I used to be in Silver, I know the struggles - despite that, Plat feels like the worst, considering people always have the "potential" to do something but keep disappointing you so extremely direly every single time.

Bronze, Silver and Gold you can just assume everyone's gonna feed and suck at mechanics, in Platinum it's a somewhat mixed bag so it really hits you meanly x:
Aurani
Yes, I can agree with that.
In Plat, from experience, people tend to (just like you said) have the potential to make incredible plays, but not only do they constantly fail to live up to your expectations, they also think they're entitled to at least high Diamond, not Plat, so they behave like total goddamn assholes.

Silver is worse, but in a different way. People there feel demoralised from the mere fact that they're Silver, and not Gold (something a lot of Silver-ranked people dream about every night), so they give no fucks about whether or not their mechanics are equal to those of a guy without arms, or if they'll feed and quit. They just lack the fucks to give about the game itself, mostly out of self-pity or on the other extreme end - complete self-centered behaviour, even more so than those Plats.

Plats are the worst; filled with tryhards that think they're good when they don't even deserve any better. Once you start getting high Diamond games start getting more and more chill.

"X tier is the worst" has been said for literally every tier :p

Bronze are worst too
Aurani
Bronze are, in my opinion, one of the most laid-back and kindest people on ranked. Yes, they might be terrible game-wise, but not many actually rage and feed deliberately, unlike virtually every other tier up to Diamond.
