    Really good video, as a casual league player Jhin is my favourite ADC to play and getting to learn how he came to be and his history in general is really interesting

    "Why "Get good" is the best way to balance a game" is not exactly how I would describe the issue. First I would like to introduce myself, I am a game designer in the shooter genre, maybe they be competitive PvP or PvE, I cannot state the games I worked on because of non-disclosure (and because I don't want everyone spamming me to rework a champion in a game), but I would like to say that I have been for 8 years. Next I would like to tell you about how we approach changes to a game as a game designer team for better understanding of what actually goes through our heads : The majority of our job is to theorize changes that should be brought to a game, every time we go through a change, the most capital part of it are the base game mechanics, and if those would need a change before we change anything else, I suppose this is what Riot has done with the item reworks, those take years to execute tho so I won't talk for anyone here. Then we try to see what problems with a specific part of the game there are, this is where we think about maps, physics, stats, and champions Champions are always an extremely tricky subject, because ultimately, they are dependent on the players, especially in PvP, and even more on a competitive scene. This is why you would sometime have to way a month or two before a broken champion gets nerfed, because internally we aren't having the same problems as players new to the champions are having, and we would rather wait to see if the reason why they are so powerful is simply because people aren't used to play against them. Now in your video, you stated that Low elo seems to be much more influential to champion reworks than high elo, mentioning for example Akali. Now here's the thing about that, Elo in a game, as well as rank, in almost entirely relative, the goal with rank (Bronze, Silver, Gold...) is to place the player somewhere COMPARED to other players, gold and platinum are often the most populated roles in most games, since Gold and Plat are representing the average, if more players get better at the game, then Gold and Plat will get higher skill matches, and if a wave of new player joins, then the general elo of players in Gold/Plat will lower. Often once we've identified a problem with a champion, we have to decide if it is important or not to rework said champion, and that's where it gets really tough. How important something is, is just as relative as the skill of players, and is largely influenced by it, as you said it yourself, there's a good chance that old yorick would have been balanced since generally, people got better at the game, but here's the problem with that : Low elo players are much more numerous and represent a much bigger part of the community than high elo players. so when we think about a rework, we have to take into account that most of the player base, who aren't good at the game, complain about a champion, and that gives it a big importance. This is a big part of why Iron and Challenger is a great thing in LoL, because it gives a place for extremely bad players, and extremely dedicated players, to be in, in those two elos, much of anything is possible, and their voices are almost never taken into account because it's just another universe. Speaking of that, Akali, as you said, Akali is (Or was) the lowest winrate champion at low level, but she's really good at high level, so, why aren't they buffing her for lower bracket? The answer : Lower bracket, again, but not for the reason you would think. E-sport has a very important place in a game's popularity, a competitive game is often defined by their e-sport scene and wherever it's popular or not, and E-sport is mostly aiming at being entertaining to look at, for the whole community. E-sport has to be interesting for higher level players as much as lower level players alike, now if a champion, like, akali, was to be buffed, she would be picked constantly, you would see her every single game, or she'd get banned all the time, doing that with a lot more champions than one, and there isn't enough bans, meaning, the game would almost be decided entirely when it comes to the draft, and how they manage to play their comp. This does have a place, and is entertaining to watch... but not for lower bracket players, they won't understand anything about why this teamfight was won, or why they lost the game, so e-sport is it's own balance in itself, and that's why everything is so hard to balance, there's a lot of things to be taken into account... And sadly, very sadly, listening too much to the community leads to VERY VERY bad things happening to the game. If you want a good example of this, take a look at overwatch, Blizzard's balance team has made huge mistakes, mostly due to them listening too much to the community, and the game is in purgatory, E-sport matches became horrible to watch as everyone was playing the exact same thing (looking at you goats) and the devs weren't willing to make the changes necessary to repair that, because the community told them not to. Jeff kaplan himself, explained that they were making Overwatch 2 because Overwatch was fundamentally broken at it's very core, and a lot of that happened because they would remove complexity, listen almost only to lower brackets, and ignore completely the higher bracket balance. Now I understand that you aren't a game designer, your video was interesting, so I am writing this is order to inform you that sadly, most videos like those, no matter how well they are made, won't teach anything to the balance team, the process of balancing, and especially reworking is a nightmare on so many levels, because there is so much that needs to be taken into account, but trust me when I tell you, the LoL balancing team knows what they are doing and recognizes their mistakes, but there's just too much going on in the background. I will leave you on an interesting note, since it's a feedback i heard from a lot of players, in a lot of different games : "The new champions are too complex, the old ones were better because they were simpler" To answer that simply : Complexity allows a game to balance itself, Classes can be broken in TF2, Champions can be overloaded in LoL, but because the games have so much complexity, they will never solely dominate, because there's ALWAYS a counterplay.

    Zilean is so incredibly weak that riot forgot he was a champion. It’s not possible to hit a double bomb in any champion with a dash and if he can’t double bomb you the best he can do is attempt to auto-attack you to death. This really is not one of your best videos. Zilean sucking so much ass is what made me quit league since he used to be my favorite champion.

  • Social

    Honestly, I'm a nobody you know, like most of us lmao, but I think a lot of why I started to enjoy league of legends when I picked it up 3ish years ago, was this champ. I fall in love with character concepts and this was just the most incredible one you could put into a game like this. Reminds me of a well written villains like Darth Vader, Thanos, etc.

    When they start adjusting champions (not yet on a rework lvl) that’s where the worst things happened, also with items, etc, for example the resistances on deaths dance, like some mental ill person was adjusting it, I still believe so, sylas e shield gone, w heal even more increased = braindead for midlane killed for jgl

    hashakah the ass eater

    I think ahri is a good champion because her Kit is fair if she doesn't land her e she can't really kill you and her assassin/mage design is kinda cool. I would say jax has a good design not cus he my most played champ but because he feels easy to pick up but hard to master . His abilities might sound braindead at first wich is lower elo they're when it comes to higher elo you will need to decide whether to use your r or not or is it worth it to use your e to deal extra damage or to use it definsively makes the difference between when a good and a bad jax player

    Ahh I miss the days when I could pick Quinn as a adc assassin

    Great vid man!!

  • Senji

    Real problem is that ppl get perma banned for 1 bad word (without having any banns or restrictions ever on their account) but if you int down 20 games a row it's just the "ah maybe this guy just has a bad day let's not directly pull the bann hammer".... Lvling up a new account is the worst experience in this entire game . Smurf queue or not you will have 90% games with 1 afk or 1 guy with above 20 deahts per game.

    Usually, I find myself in agreement with the claims you make in your videos. Usually. This one, however, I cannot agree with. Jhin is very, very far from being anything close to a perfect champion, or even well designed.
