You seem to be the only Rioter that responds to the common man. You're the last of your kind after Shurelia left and it's left a bitter taste in my mouth. I've had the same cause for a little over half a year and the responses from Riot employees has steadily fallen from 3-4 Riot employees to 0. I know for a fact that I will be downvoted for the topic of this thread; this community has had a hate in their eyes for anything but "the meta" for the past while, but that's no reason to hold my opinion away from the world.
AP Tryndamere has been brutally murdered since July 25th, 2011. Despite all my attempts to keep him viable, despite all the responses I received from Riot employees consoling me that he would be kept viable after the Tryndamere remake; He's dead. Ever since the remake there has only been a single Riot employee to (officially) reply to me; Shurelia. She's gone now and I have no one left backing me. Tamat has (unofficially) told me that he's sure I'm not being cast aside, which has brought my hopes up. I'm just hoping he wasn't saying it as a professional; but rather a fellow player.
AP Tryndamere was by far the most fun (and most successful) build I have ever used. It's possible that it just suited my playstyle extremely well, it's possible it was overpowered, it's possible it was completely balanced. People were finally starting to appreciate AP Trynd for the strength he provided to the game. Despite the recent scarcity in replies to me, I'm not giving up hope. AP Trynd had too much promise; too much potential.
I'm used to the comments. "ap trynd was never viable noob" or "lol riot buff AP Garen", every single time I make a thread about AP Trynd, or any unconventional build for that matter, I get comments like this. I'm bored of them and I honestly don't think I can force myself to respond to them anymore. I will however, answer questions about AP Trynd, if anyone is interested whilst I wait for Xyph to respond (wishful thinking, I know).
Something I have learned over various AP Trynd threads, if I don't post a picture of AP Tryndamere I am called a troll, downvoted even more than I usually am and requested it anyway. So, as arrogant as it may sound, I'm gonna just upload the picture now.
AP Trynd was amazing, fun and, despite what many believe(d), viable. No Riot employees caring about the common man have been around since Shurelia left. All my attempts at getting AP Trynd looked at have, as far as I can tell, been cast asunder. This is why you're my last hope, Xypherous.
