They tried to nerf Ninja Tabi but ended up buffing them.

"Hey we noticed that everyone buys tabis on every champion so let's make them the best late game boots in the game, surely that'll fix this issue" - Rito logic.

You know, they could just actually nerf tabis and buff Boots of Swiftness or something. But nah, making sense is too mainstream.

Funniest thing : now that Legend: Tenacity is actually good, now every bruiser will go for tenacity, so they won't need merc treads anymore and will go tabis instead. Same for a lot of carries.

TABIS FOR EVERYBODY.

The tabi nerf is definitely directed at squishies (like ADCs) building it to survive assassins. It's much worse on something like Varus vs a Zed, but still good on tanks vs adcs. I think that was the intention given the compensation buff to the passive.

AD carries would build tabis regardless of whether there were assassins on the enemy team or not, so that's not really true. What they're trying to do with this is making it an anti-ad carry item, not an anti ad item in general.

That's basically my point. The new tabis are weaker when the user has less than ~115 armor which basically covers mids and adcs (and that's just covering autoattacks). Dropping armor in favor of autoattack reduction inherently makes them worse against burstier champs like riven and zed which have high ability damage. Tanks and bruisers can afford to lose ~10 armor. Just makes it a bit weaker in lane phase.

Going to have to figure out how to play around the updated Irelia but my first impression is "Rito why you think giving a champion a potentially multi-champion stun that they can place where they like is a good idea?"

Also I don't understand the direction they are trying to take Lux. Her ult is already one of her most frustrating abilities to play around because the hit box is ******ed and it has such a long range.

Gragas jungle still feels bad. AP ratio increases aren't going to help that. His cool downs are so obnoxiously long in the early game that he can't deal with any jungler that invades him, because most of his damage is tied up in Q and full damage from that is conditional and a skill shot.

Hecarim is also going to need more love. You pretty much have to go Aftershock to survive engaging. IMO The ghost pony needs a little love in the base damages department so you can clear a little faster and more healthily so that you actually have a chance of getting the point where you can carry.
