But seeing morello make a comment and we probably won't get another comment in 2012 which is very disappointing to say the least. Numbers don't lie if you look at renekton timeline his base numbers at release vs 3 months after release are very telling biggest one is this his heal being taken from 15% to 5% also his fury heal being taken from 15% to 10% and they wonder why he shouldn't be called a Tanky DPS anymore but AD caster. Also the way renekton gets fury and maintains it is just bad to all those that say he is fine would renekton be your solo top of choice if there was $100,000 prize on the line and you had to pick a solo top to carry your team I think not maybe before RIOT killed him off but not now. So giving up not a chance. Disappointed very much so and personally after seeing various renekton postings closed recently especially post about the recent skin brought forth makes me wonder if RIOT will admit ever that they nerfed renekton to much and also this skin not the best from what I have read and tried out personally. It's almost like RIOT says hey not what you renekton guys want but here is something kinda makes me feel like wow you don't hear us and we get some skin not legendary or very good but something to quiet you guys down just my personal feeling about the skin. I buy it to support the champ I love not because it's a good skin in my opinion. I appreciate the effort in RIOT bringing it forth but to not ignore us would have been much better than the skin itself.
First, the skin development does have nothing todo with the balancing state of a champion (except eve/twitch maybe), your idea that they pushed out a skin so people don't request a nerf doesn't succeed, because they also pushed out skins for champions when they nerfed them, buffed them, or did absolutely nothing to them.
Second, I know why Riot did not do anything to Renekton yet.
The sad truth is, that they are afraid of him. Renekton is like his buddy Xin-Zhao part of a champion design that Riot tries to avoid since they started with it: Snowball champs.
Riot already said that they won't change just some of Xin-Zhaos base stats/spells otherwise he might become a snowballer again, and even though they didn't say it explicitly, Renekton is in the same problematic area.
With Renekton is probably even worse, because he is in a really balanced area atm, all he needs is a better lategame. Morello meant that he wants to go even further and increase his overall fury mechanics, to feel more fluid.
I believe him, but I also doubt that such a thing comes out anytime soon, because giving Renekton better usability without turning him into another snowball machine is everything but easy.
Anyway, what I want to say, crying doesn't help. You can either cry in every single of your posts how Riot ignores you and pledge, or you actually use that space in a formally manner and try to inform people about Renektons real state.
This thread was never meant to be a "QQ Riot, where art thou buffs!?" thread, I made this thread to collect ideas, Renekton players and to keep non-Renekton players and Riot informed about it.
