Also remember, a major goal is to stop her from low-elo pubstomping too. End goal involves both more viability and causing less frustration to fight when she is effective, and right now that's looking pretty solid.
Buffing her without fixing the low-elo stomp frustration is not something I want to do. That's ****ty for new players, and we don't like to dump all over them to do temporary fixes.
Also, we're not really looking to change her fundamental role, we're looking at smart skill reworks to make her good at that role.
Sexing up Zileas.
I'm crazy about Evelynn. I love to play her in normals and with my new friends because the lower levels aren't experienced enough to take advantage of her weakness in lane. That being said I also see that she is capable of wrecking these people that don't know how to take advantage of her. I realize what i'm about to propose is new and potentially extreme, but I think this game is considered competitive, after all, it has a ranked system. Competitive games should be balanced around the HIGHEST level of play, and because Evelynn stomps too easily in low levels, finding a balance for her is difficult. I propose making Evelynn have a level requirement to purchase. By doing this new players will have had time to experience stealth through champions like shaco, talon, and twitch. This way Evelynn's near-permanent stealth type play would come as less of a shock. Just an idea but i've been thinking about it for awhile and I feel it may hold ground.
TLDR: Level requirement for low level stomp champions.
