WARNING : WALL OF TEXT (HARD HITING ONE),
To continue the title : Why they keep releasing new champs that r better versions of old ones and make old ones useless.
For example , lets look at MF and Kat.
Kat : Main dmg in team fights sorce : her ultimate
Harrasing weapon : Q
heal debuff OR 3 sec dmg absorbing W
Go in , escape mech E
Good at chasing because of E, good in escape because of E, good early haras because of Q, so so good in kite,Ult who can win the team fight if is used good
MF : Main dmg in team fights : Ultimate AND normal attack
Harrasing weapon : Q
heal debuff + aspd bonus W
AOE slow + dmg E
Good in kite, good early harrasing Q, range + high MS , Devastating ult.
In 1st look both look good BUT:
MF is range - advantage
U have complain because of BB until now because u stay behind mobs and stil get harrased ? Now u get hiter HARDER because u stay behind your creeps cuz MF Q get 120% dmg for 2nd hit
Kat can heal debuff entire team with W+Q ? Thats happend very rare to can hit whole enemy team with 1 BB , also u loose the %DMG reduction.
MF heal debuff 1 target but the target she hits take so huge dmg that force healer to heal MF target so the heal debuff job is done. ALSO she get huge ASPD buff that gvie her exelent DPS.
Kat using E to chase , escape place for ult , escape.
MF casting her ult from safe distance, no need skill to place, chasing with her pasive and lacking of escape mech.
Ults : Both devastating , both good item scalling BUT Kat must reach lvl 16 to can hit 3 targets, MF ult hitting entire team from lvl 1; Kat casting her ult between all enemy team, MF casting her ult behind all her team on safe place (also that make it more harder to interupt) and IN HUGE CONE !
Overall : MF harras i can say (specialy after Kat Q nerf) is better than Kat, got A LOT better normal hit (even i can say that is her main weapon after u get IE), got better ult.
Because MF is range this mean she stay behind her team and she using that team like shield so no need so badly escape mech, also flash + ghost give her enough escape in laning.
MF got AOE CC, Kat dont have any kind CC.
Both champs can be builded on AP or AD and use full potencial of the champ.
Imo MF is like ranged Katarina, but with bigger boobs and AOE CC.
Something like this alrdy happened before with releasing Vlad and Xin. They succsefully take places of champs like Annie , Nassus , Jax and give better results.
If Riots continue with this i`m sure that after a month or 2 nobody gona play any of the original (or atleast before Poppy) champions anymore, and imo this must get changed.
