Sorry just summing up the posts on this page.
that's not summing up my post, i feel i have several valid points as to how horrible this patch was and how it broke the game as well ass a lot of other people commenting...
its not because it is change, it is the change itself that has ruined the game... take for example the fact that you get less gold from farming and more from standing around doing nothing, that does not support any motivation to actually farm considering ill have almost the same amount of gold if i don't farm at all, they might as well remove the how to video on last hitting because you don't need to do that anymore.
My earlier complaint was never explained and so i'd like to say that the support is a support for a reason, if you give the support just as much money as the ADC then your throwing the old meta completely out the window and the old meta is what we used to love about the game... I think it was said best when someone said your trying to fix something that's not broken, you've been gaining players and being successful thus far until this patch where out of nowhere you decide we want to kill League of Legends and create a new game for people to play and hey that's fine if you do but can we at least get a server dedicated to the game we've come to learn and love instead of being forced to learn a completely new game when we already liked the old one?
Also i would like to address the changes to the jungle: it appears your trying to make the jungle so difficult that it drives people out of it and everyone lanes... why even have a jungle then? you might as well remove all jungle camps if your going to make them that hard, it's just an open window for someone to fail miserably jungling and possibly throw the game... I've been seeing posts by riot saying that somehow this opens the door to new junglers and how they want to make the jungle more viable to more champs, well this was the exact opposite... Am i missing something or are we maybe playing different games? how can my view be so different then yours? how does buffing the jungle make it easier for different champs to jungle exactly? I'm just going to assume that you guys at riot know that this change denied a lot of champs from jungling and continue to lie and say it doesn't for some strange reason? i cannot come to any other conclusion as to how you feel about this situation.
Now to address the new items: simply said there will always be an optimal build for each class type that everyone will follow, its completely inevitable.. taking away, adding and modifying existing items just causes everyone to find the new build that works best for their champ. All in all as far as items i don't think it was a bad idea to add new items, remove old items or even modify old items but you just did too many changes at once and at the same time changed the store so on top of not having our builds were used to building and having to try to figure out a new build with new items were unsure of the name and details, we have to try to find them in this new shop thats based on a search bar to search for items we don't know because you've basically changed the build for every champ.
Now to address the masteries: In the offensive tree you can only go about 9 points in whilst choosing AP options before you hit a dead stop and have nothing else to put into, unless you wast 3 points for 1.5% more damage or so which helps you get to the bottom of the tree, but wait why go all the way to the bottom of the tree when all thats there is a 3% buff in damage anyway? Why not play every champ with defensive masteries because all of the new defensive masteries are ridiculously godly, how can u compare the offensive masteries to the defensive ones? and no im not talking about the bottom of it because it only gives a 3% buff while most of the earlier masteries in that tree give 10-15% buffs and so on...
My overall outlook is: jungling and ADC's are being broken to help buff the support... which only leads me to believe the new meta will not include a jungler nor an ADC, it will include a tank, a tank, a tank, a tank, and another tank or support type tanky champ... because the only masteries that make sense are tank or support masteries. idk why the support is so important to buff teh **** out of but i guess whoever loved to play support before (nobody) is really going to love it now and whoever loved to play ADC or jungle (everyone) will start feeling like they should either start playing a tank, support, or just simply another game.... I am trying to keep myself busy while still longing to play the old league that appears to be gone forever, but i have hope much like a lot of other people here that we might get a revert... until that happens i won't be playing, sorry to rant and rave on and on but that guy trying to say I'm just scared of change made me feel like i had to explain my frustrations because he lacks the intelligence to see it for himself
