    not in love with the fact that 2/3 of the Runeterra Champs so far are just "put me in with the 3-5 support cards i was released with"

    you wind up with decks like bard elusives with that sort of thing because there's nothing there to feast on

    I agree. Jihn created a different expectation for most of us. Maybe in the future.

    Why does it feel like they gave up on champion design except for the most iconic characters like Annie, Riot must have not much confidence left in the game.

    i don't think the faith that Riot The Corporate Entity has in the game would have anything to do with what the developers are making as card designs

    I'm legit confused by this comment. How have they given up on design?

    The champions this set are incredibly bland. It's just giving units challenger/overwhelm/etc. and big stats. It feels like Riot left them with a skeleton crew and they didn't have the resources to implement anything good.

    You're describing every card in this game. It's a stat-based minion combat game.

    It's not every card though, that's not how I would describe Karma, ASol, Anivia, Ezreal. But yes I guess maybe on the whole my problem might just be that I think the game sucks.

    Finally got to Platinum. Took forever, but I finally got there with Bard/Maokai mill. It’s a lot of fun to play.

    So after finishing up the revamped Path of Champions, I think I preferred the old version, which I was not expecting. At least it was nice to have some new challenges to tackle.

    My thoughts:
    • The power scaling on the new end game is absurd. Powers stacking on one another gets bonkers quickly and in the last fight you either get a total lock on the game or you lose to infinitely large butts.
    • The new character unlock system is unfortunate. I'm glad I at least went through it after the wildcard stars were introduced.
    • Bard is far too dependent on getting the right powers. In the last adventure he's either helpless or an instant win, and the deciding factor is whether or not you find the power that gives +1/+1 to allies for every keyword. The +3/+3 to your weakest minion power can also single-handedly carry through most adventures since it guarantees that Bard will level by turn 4.
    • I'm not sure it's possible to lose an adventure with Darius with Trifarian Might. I didn't find out, because after getting this combo once I shelved Darius in favour of champs that felt better balanced.
    • Yasuo continues to be the most satisfying champion to play. Getting him down and slicing the opposing board up is wonderful. Some of the new relics make it so playing him ends the game instantly, instead of having to use stuns strategically with him, which is a shame but at least relics are optional.

    All in all, kinda bummed. In general the new content feels poorly balanced, with synergies that aren't well thought out and way too powerful. How did other people find new vs. old PoC?

    Honestly, I like the new Path better than the old one, although they don't feel that much different. I was hoping for deck altering and more flexible pathing, but it is what it is I guess. It feels like these were all ideas that were going to be eventually added but got shelved.

    For me, Path is a lot of fun and preferable to Ranked in certain metas. Making broken shit is great, albeit at the cost of some challenge.

    Had a rough night yesterday trying to get my 3 wins with my Maokai/Bard deck. Started good at 2-1, but then I ran into a Pirate Aggro deck. It was the first aggro deck I'd seen in like 50 games. I mean, who does that?!

    Well I'll tell you who, our very own @Yilias! Hey, you're a Masters player, leave us climbing Plats alone. Ended up losing that match, then the next 3 from the emotional betrayal I suffered. :P

    I love the concept of equipment. Looking forward to seeing how it’s explored.

    immediately revealing another origin that does something just makes Evelynn more baffling

    i have no doubts in my mind that their playtest version of Evelynn was busted and they must have stripped text from the origin as part of their balancing process

    Honestly very interested in the Equip mechanic. Also I have a Twitter friend who is no good with TCGs but is a big Darkin fan so I'll be exploring that a bit.

    Several champions look really interesting to try, but Norra is probably at the top of my list. All hail the RNG gods!

    can i still cheese people all the time with fiora? or has the meta game just become oppressive with something else?

    Fiora got -1 hp and hasn't been seen since. Mono Fiora is dead and Shen/Fiora evolved into Shen/Jarvan which is also now dead.

    Thralls had a renaissance recently when they printed more support but it got hit with a few nerfs in response and doesn't see play currently.

    Oh, I overlooked this in the patchnotes:
    Ranked Ladder Adjustments
    We’re updating Ranked Play to have more satisfying progression. Ladder Point changes for winning and losing have been adjusted at each rank, with largest changes in the lower leagues: Iron, Bronze, Silver, and Gold.

    Plat is now +25/-20, they're trying to funnel everybody into Diamond I guess.

    E: Diamond is +22/-20 now.

    I appreciate that change. I didn't get out of Plat last season after getting within 5-6 wins. I just don't have the time/desire to grind that hard. Makes me appreciate the Diamond climb more, but to each their own.
