for anyone that complains about darius being annoyingly strong, including me, this seems like good news because he isnt going to get full stacks of his passive and his ult will only be doing true damage at full stacks even though it gets 10% pen at each stack, BUT this is still only a potential one so its not final

The only thing I'd change about him is that if you flash away or something he can still ult you. I think it should reset his ult instead. It's like he starts to ult, then you flash over a wall and then GET DUNKED *********A

Thank you Miss Maw, CasterMaster and Arcana3 for the sweet sigs. I'd definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a nice sig.

I'll quote HotToTopLane here:
"In the competitive scene he is hardly picked and if he is he is there just for tanking and using his ulti for finishing a low target.

Sure he could do with some slight tweaks but name one champion that doesn't need adjusting. He's not OP just beats bads who don't understand how a bully lane works."

Darius is one of my favorite champs and I really agree with this.He is just fine as he is.

Im mostly fine with Darius in draft. Hes annoying as hell in blind picks when you don't see him coming. He packs ******ed damage in close range so the counter is picking someone that doesn't go in close, which you cant counter as easily in blind pick. Also he forces you to be paying constant attention to him at all times which gets boring and annoying when im playing blind pick for fun. He can also do really well if a jungler camps his lane for a few minutes and can snowball that advantage to make lane hell for you pretty much regardless of your champion. That being said in games that are decently organized he is no issue, he is just a pubstomp. They nerfed Mordekaiser for the same reason. Just my thoughts after having laned vs him over 100 times.

As he is right now hes unfun for his teammates and the enemy team. His balance isnt really much of an issue as the fact of his design is.

i think Berzerk is the one that got it, his kit is unfun for everyone but darius including his own team so theyre changing it so hes more of a "teamwork" based champion instead of a "press r five times and take the kills" type champion

me and my friends play primarily blind pick because we play for fun and when darius is picked it just turns into an unfun game which is why i said hes "annoyingly strong" because of his kit, hes strong in a way thats annoying to play against and with

he should have never been released with a magic damage passive. He does physical, true, and magic damage in his current state. I would be satisfied if they changed his passive to deal physical damage.

I remember reading a red post which said basically said Darius' passive dealt physical damage but they panicked and changed it to magic right before the patch. The reasoning was something along the lines of testing him top lane against draven, and he kept losing to draven.

i think you should read the passive on the black cleaver before you say you want darius' passive to deal physical damage, if his passive dealt physical damage he could auto attack you once and youll suffer the full passive from the black cleaver so id rather it still only deal magic damage so that the black cleaver doesnt get abused on him

it wouldn't have an effect until he got black cleaver. It would make early armor more effective agaisnt darius, besides i most darius players i see don't rush black cleaver as hard as other bruisers. I don't really think it would be a problem
