Enough is enough! I'm sick of champs constantly being nerfed and buffed because of popularity phases.
For example Kha'Zix at the moment, he's gonna' be nerfed. Why? Because of the amount of whiny little *******s that want Riot to nerf instead of Learning how to beat the champ. If a champ is powerful that's what they are, they shouldn't be made mediocre because players are too lazy to cope.

I mean look at Caitlyn, she's one of my favourite champs, she's and AD carry and according to her stats has a high AD mark, so why the hell is she so weak?!?!?

This needs to stop

Kha's as of right now not looking at any nerfs, he isn't placed really high on any tier lists nor is anyone really complaining about him. Also I have to disagree with your opinions on stronger champs. If they are always banned because they can win every lane, hard to counter, strong mechanically it's riots job to balance that. Most ofthe recent nerfs riot has been doing have been justified. There is a degree to which counterplay effects,
But there comes a point when the champion itself is the problem and they need to be toned down.

Well as far as nerfing new champions after release immediately. I agree.

But as for any older champions, popularity usually means overly strong. Alistar is a prime example, he's been nerfed multiple times and still remains perma banned and super popular. Or Malphite's surge of popularity. He reigned supreme and popular because he really was overpowered. He needed nerfed and that's what he got.

As for Caitlyn, she has her moments of OP. She's the best zoning AD carry, and has an amazing laning phase. She just suffers late game because she lacks steroids and only has 2 useful abilities for damage.

Nope. Half the time when they nerf a champion I play I was like "Yep, that needed to happen." But my mains are Draven and Viktor who have been relatively unchanged since release.

And thanks. XD

I used to get annoyed (riot used to suuuuuuccckk at balancing). But they have actually gotten to a really good point at it.

Kha'Zix won't be nerfed. Like Berzerk said. He will likely be unchanged for a long time to come. He's an assassin, which don't fit in the meta anyway, currently. Plus he has mediocre stealth, not even worthy of using orcale's on. He's only truly terrifying if you're dumb enough to be away for your team mates.

TL;DR: He's strong, but nowhere near OP.
