      Hello Exil! Sorry to complain but it's really annoying that you are not crediting the songs but only their platform... I like the "intro" bit song but even when writing the lyrics I can't seem to find it and it's really frustrating. Aside from that, I'm sure that the artist(s) would really appreciate being credited even if it's royalty free.. Could you please share the artists and name of that song please?

    See, the main idea behind these champion reworks are great. But execution is always faulty, usually too much gets added, or it conflicts with what they're trying to change FROM. But in all honestly, when something works well, it doesn't need changing. It just needs tidying up at that point. They kind of busted that theory with LeBlanc and her old kit, it was great, just needed fine tuning, not a whole new tune.

  • Gregory Baraghimian

    I remember thinking this stuff about her rework when it came out. I feel like today riot has both the confidence in themselves and the trust from the players that if this rework happened now, it wouldn't get reverted, but who knows 🤷

    Will you make videos about vladmir and nasus, the worse designed champions ever?

    Is it just me who wants a gamemode with all the old Champs pre rework like more voli nunu galio Warwick (scratch that freak that warwick) poppy and uhh Morgana and kayle

  • さんまどか

    How about an option to use either the old kit or new kit on a champion, they can start it off by introducing a new game mode where champions had their old kits.

    • Crazy Tosser

      They actually can try to add several playstyles to a champion on a champ select screen. It can be a great solution.

    Your video about how LeBlanc's old mains felt that her assassin identy was changed to being a burst mage after her rework really reminded me that it's the same reason why all Ahri veterans complain about Ahri and pretty much every Ahri player has posted their own versions of Ahri reworks on reddit every other day: the champion's play style has been completely changed despite no major ability rework and having good win rate all along. What Ahri was about in Season 3 4 5 and why people liked playing her: dash in, hit your skillshots, reposition, dash out with a kill. But with DFG she could kill enemies with W and R without hitting E, which was followed by the removal of DFG and damage nerfs on Ahri's base abilities and scaling. So Riot reworked her into this utility support midlaner, especially with Glacial Augment GLP and Everfrost: you use your slows and E to provide CC to help your team get kills, use R to run away and avoid being caught, basically a mobile CC provider that never dies, and when being even or insignificantly ahead, Ahri's entire combo will not kill anyone, and no matter how fed, Ahri will deal the least damage than any mage or assassin with the same items, which would have been balanced since if Ahri has ult, nobody can kill her, and it's fair that she can't kill anyone either. However, since her mobility is on her ult, she has the least accessible mobility with the longest cool down out of all assassins, and the lowest AP scaling out of all mages, the reality is that at a certain point of the game, while she can't kill anyone, anyone can one-shot her before she can dash 3 times away regardless if she has if off cool down or not. Since her ult saves her from mis-positioning and being caught, Ahri still had 52% win rate (but with Glacial Augment, GLP, Twin Shadows. Her win rate with Electrocute, Luden's and etc was 48% if you look), so for the same reason Lulu and Sona had 53% win rate at some points, not by doing damage and killing enemies but by providing utilitites with slows and CC to help her team make picks and win. So for a long time (mainly Season 8 9 10), we just have this situation in which Ahri veterans stubbornly trying to play her as this damage dealer/assassin but dealing the weakest damage and getting automatically outscaled no matter how ahead, while the rest of the players complaining about her broken win rate. It's just that her play style has completely changed from what her mains wanted to play. But with S11 changes it seems like Ahri's damage is finally on-par with other mages, but since she was already very balanced without the damage, her win rate is now shooting up again. She even appeared in LEC for the first time in years, I won't be surprised if Riot removes the charm damage amp or W movement speed again.

    As someone who had over 150k mastery points on the old Talon, this one deosnt do it for me to be honest, I also played a fair bunch of the old poppy and I wont even mention the new one as most people that are aware of how the old poppy worked can tell the current iteration is an entirely different champion, obly keeping her old "E", all this to say you will never make everyone happy with a rework, not even the mains or avid players of the champion, it should ultimately be about having the game and champion in a healthy state!

  • Tresten Pope

    Oh god, this was around when I started playing. I remember falling in love with playing Lux, and I learned Mid was the best place for me to go to build towards being the burst Queen. Then one day this lady with some scary makeup on her eyes comes along and just deletes me. I thought my old memories of Leblanc were all fake, but after this video, I realize I had learned about Leblanc during her rework state, and the reason why Leblanc on live doesn't seem totally different is because a lot is still the same in application, just different with the intricacies and how things combo. That Q bounce was awesome, but it scared me.

    The reworked Leblanc would fall into the akali aatrox ryze problem, where because her ult allowed for such creativity, she would be very skill expressive and broken in pro play but bad in lower elos

  • João Brito
    João Brito

    Yeah the biggest problem with Leblanc is the fact that her W is her mobility spell, her main source of damage, her source of wave clear. This champion will need another rework some time soon

  • Jacek Gątkowski

    I loved the reworked lb... Too many noobs on reddit crying that they were unable to make combos. But the R was giving so much flexibility. Double R on the top lane could easily burn flash of enemy top lane making him easy target for ganks. Push was nice. Man this was awesome :D

  • Pepsy

    still hoping for the aatrox rework gets reverted, if it was possible with LB i hope its possible for Aatrox too

    Is nobody else sad for the xerath rework? I never got the chance to play the old one, i was sparing points for him and then he got a rework. Probably he couldn't have handled the game as it is right now but back then i remember that he was perfectly balanced and unique. He just was not that played, but i mean, let it be a niche pick. I find that the current one is good but way less unique and interesting

  • Kevin Poulsen Fernández

    I think I would make LB’s passive like her old R. Every few seconds, if you use an ability you also create a mimic from that same spell. That way you can still make that fun stuff I miss from that LB, because right now I seriously think LB’s passive is extremely boring.


    As a Rengar main, I also didn't like the fact that I couldn't delete someone in under a second anymore, but I love the crit on his ULT. Didn't think I'd like it till I player bruiser rengar top with Black Cleaver and Titanic Hydra, with just those 2 items you can still one shot an adc and survive because of your tankiness and w cleanse, he also shreds tanks and almost always wins every lvl 1 1v1 in top. I actually abused it and that was my first time hitting masters.


    I remember when me and my friends played every assassin during the assassin rework, funny how I got a pentakill with Katarina when I didn't know what I was doing, I also think that was the first reworked Katarina penta on the main server since it was minutes after the update. Might be a long shot.

    Ive been using leblanc for 2 years straight picking the same chapion over and over again, leblanc carried me to platinum back in 2017, i've played her even before the rework. The problem, for me, why they reverted her is because of the series of "nerfs" in her kit (the reworked on3) until such time that her damage is not that good and on top of that you have to wait for 1.5 seconds to proc her passive. I actually like the idea of being reverted if we are forced to wait on that time having very little damage

    I had over 3k games on akali before rework. Then I quit the game. Sad story.

  • normanderi

    i truly didnt know what to think on the rework, i felt better in lane, but worst at late, to me having the q proc, is so good to destroy 1 person, like an assassin needs to do, but having the proc on the pasive was good too, but rework lb on team fight felt like i had to use 1000% of my brain to get a good enough play to do anything or get oneshot, with this current lb, is find a close enough opening hit everything on the keyboard, someone died or multiple if you do w-r, with rework lb, you had to use w or r converted w, to get near/hit them all, get out or wait for the proc or dodge with the other w anything and then q, e mostly for keeping people away or cc like right now. for me rework lb felt better when things did go my way(because you felt like haing 2 million IQ) and worst when they didnt(because you had to do so many things to be really efective that you got caught before the effectiveness kicked in) than actual lb.

    Ty for giving a nice trip down memory lane. I love the rework lb becuz it gives so much space on what to do and when to do it. The revert made me sad about her and since then i havent touch her at all. It was fun playing with the rework.

  • Song Lin

    I feel a little relieved to know that Riot realizes that they named Leblanc "The Deceiver", not Shaco "The Deceiver" or WuKong "The Deceiver",but they failed to remake her in the end. Leblanc should be renamed "The Rapid Caster" or "The Keyboard Roller".Her gameplay has nothing to do with deception, it's only related to how fast your fingers can move and your reaction. Monotonous and lack of creativity. I think Leblanc needs a complete rework to meet the characteristics of the "illusionist", Her skills should be based on using the mirror image, Indirectly change the battle, rather than directly slap the face. But I don't think Riot will still invest energy in the old champions, too many of them are in an "unplayable" state. Their focus is obviously on making new heroes.

  • TheEmperorOfDrifts

    I am an absolute bot at farming on LeBlanc. So I always got my gold by just killing everyone

  • Lazlum

    Katarina is the best rework ever

  • Camolot

    That ending bit is exactly what a feel about pre rework talon and swain. Is the rework better than the pre versions, for talon definatly and arguably swain, but there was something about pre talon i just loved even though its been so long I don't remember why. Pre swain was my first champ that I seriously mained, sure pre swain was basically brain dead kit but the q (espically the mini rework q) and r made it pretty dam fun.

    Lb was one of my first solo laner/assassin picks and kinda still is. I used to love her and then i specifically remember i stopped playing her because she felt too easy and or linear so i didnt really pick her up again until the rework. When it first came out ofc i didnt know wtf i was doing and bitched like whoever else you cite as feeling bad about having to wait to proc the mark, but with enough time it felt great. I just had to think differently. The entire challenge *was* to get around the enemy in a way that you can easly proc the egg timer, creating kind of a wellspring of ideas not to mcfucking mention *choosing the mimicked spell*. It was just like the katarina update, seemingly minor changes that change the entire gameplan but keep the theme. I barely even played these old ass champions but reworked leblanc, akali, and katarina will always be my three favorite assassins in league
