You did say they are 'unplayable' upon release. As noted, in my roughly 10 months of playing, there has never been a champ I've found 'unplayable' for certain. I'd argue there's not been any that have been just completely unbalanced either. A little overpowered? Sure. A little underpowered? Maybe. But the idea that Riot is completely incompetent when it comes to balancing a released champ (at least recently) is absurd. And yes, bugs happen, but for the most part, any major/gamebreaking bugs are handled quickly.Lostdreams wrote:You might have missed the context of my first quote since I didn't include it. This list is the state of the champ for the first week upon release when there are still plenty of bugs and the champs aren't "balanced" yet. (not that they are ever perfect) I am not talking about the champs now, except for Riven whose Q? is still bugged. If you spam it, it can refresh after the third hit sometimes.
As for Shyvana... http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/S ... Background
One nerf since release. I'll give that on the first week, I was terrible and was convinced she was underpowered and couldn't do anything useful. After about a week though, I had come to understand her better.
