League of Legends (LoL) Question: Do you think Fiddlesticks will receive a rework anytime soon?

    Do you think Fiddlesticks will receive a rework anytime soon?

    So, Fiddlesticks is a monster and I'm pretty sure everyone knows it. While he and Warwick started off Season 5 as masters due to their sustain through the jungle, Fiddlesticks has become pretty useless. His main sources of damage require him, a squishy mage, to stand in a team and hopefully do enough before he dies. His W is useless because he has to stand still to do it, and there's no comp this season without disrupts and heavy CC. Riot doesn't even know what to do with him, if you play him jungle his recommended jungle item is Stalker's blade, just Stalker's Blade. No enchantment, nothing. What can be done with this champion to make him viable? Obviously his ultimate is pretty good but the time for it to channel can be disrupted and lost before a fight even starts at times.

    I don't think fiddle will get a rework soon, but nonetheless he is in a very bad spot right now due to Runeglaive. I'm really disappointed with riot on not just letting the AP Enchant be like the AD Enchant, and then Having Runeglaive as a second option, like Devourer. I loved fiddle back when he was strong, but now I just can't stand to play him anymore, he doesn't fit into any role except the jungle, and not getting the enchantment just sets you behind. So I really think fiddle definitely needs a rework, but not enough people play him for riot to consider.

    His identity means having long windows of just seeing his abilities do their thing, and changing it because the current items don't help him would be bad practice. Of course you could fix it by changing fiddle, but that doesn't mean that's the right thing to do.

    Right? It would make the jungle so much more diverse, although you don't want it to be TOO diverse, or builds will just get super messy and nobody will know what they are doing. But I feel itemization is super cookie cutter in league, and i'd like it to be more diverse than it is.

    On the topic of runeglaive, I'm surprised they actually felt the need to remove both Magus and Juggernaut enchantment. They could have left them in alongside runeglaive and cinderhulk. FIddlesticks is the most obvious case where it would have been more benificial to just leave Magus there.

    Of course it can, all you have to do is rework him to where runeglaive is actually viable on him, because right now, why would you waste valuable time trying to get one auto off for a little extra damage when you have your w and your ult? Maybe make his E proc on-hit items liek sheen, that would be perfect for him and would still keep fiddle pretty much the exact same as he was

    You know, that problem you're pointing out is not fiddle's, it's an itemization problem. No amount of reworks can help him if the ap jungle itemization doesn't support long CD mages.

    Short answer, I don't think so. He might have a bland passive, but there's a lot of decision making around his kit, both on player side and counterplay-wise. He's far from a priority, and I'd say warwick is probably closer to a rework than him, to name someone (side note, I'm betting ww is one of the champions being worked on right now). His kit has weird synergy since his Q makes people always run AWAY from him... and that's pretty much it. He's got zone control, which makes him unique and with a heavier emphasis on strategic play rather than mechanical play.

    TBH his ult is one of the best parts of his kit. Sure, the channel is easy to cancel but the point is having vision control to do it without your enemies noticing (or burning flash), which means a lot of strategic play, and that's both unique and healthy gameplay. If he ever gets a rework his ult will probably have the same feel to it, with changes to his passive and maybe something small to his basic abilities, mainly his Q.
