    "let's make crazy stuff" how about a champion that's sinple and doesn't make the playerbase want 50 bans to make sure anything that was made past season 7 doesn't get to exist

    I have some crazy dream. There is champion like huge centipede named kel'bang fighting with yordle with double knives. This centipede passive can devour enemy and ally corpses and give him little portion of armor. If he eats many corpses he became so long 😂

    Keep pushing then and harder! I wanna see champion that steals walls from the game or nexus! Cause we already have champs that: steals champs, identity, ults, summs...

    Wait a sec, why does every ult steal has to be good... Some steals literally make sylas better than the original. Having ults useless to steal would just balance that...

    Ultimate stealing is nice. Do you know whats not nice? having a bloody shield and heal on top of stealing ults

    How about a champion that is based on mirrors or reflectivity. In short, the champ would reflect or charge up damage taken. :3

    "Things are easier to fix in the future". Didn't you lose like 20% of your player base because you can't fix the game?

  • Emi Koala

    Yet, Nasus ult doesn't give Sylas a Q cooldown decrease. Rito, make it happen

    • Emi Koala
      Emi Koala Month ago

      @Last Fortune By their logic, Fiora ult only proc's her passive. He gets the passive just for the ult. Therefore, it makes logical sense for them to give him a similar mechanic on his Q when he steals nasus ult.

    • Last Fortune
      Last Fortune Month ago

      cuz Nasus's ult reduce the cooldown of Siphoning Strike only

  • Luis mario Segovia alcocer

    Ok let me make this clear
    All of you worked pretty hard to develop a character and then nerf it to the ground and forget all the work you just did :l
    because it was "too op"

  • Spook

    riot: "we will not make development on league of legends any harder because sylas exists in the game"
    also riot: "97 out of the 141 characters that are currently in the game, required some level of spell refactoring"

    This is so funny to watch now that sylas is out and even riot admited that he's one of the most difficult champions to balance.
