Well, Riot dropped the ball... again! How hard it is to balance champions?

After reading the PBE patch notes, I wonder what you guys smoke there at the Balance team. http://www.surrenderat20.net/p/current-pbe-balance-changes.html - Check Ryze changes. Arcane Mastery (Passive) tool tip now notes it only makes next 5 spell casts reduce CD of other spells by overload's cooldown. The conversations must have been something like... ------------------------------------------------------- "Hey, I am tired of seeing Ryze on LCS..." "Yeah, even though his win rate sucks even at LCS level, I think we need to see some more spectacular champions, Ryze is just too dull..." "Maybe it's because he was meant to be a newbie's champions with no skill shots?" "We fixed that already with the rework... still..." "I know, the problem is that he casts too many spells, lets limit it and voila!" "Wouldn't that be too much... I mean, you don't want to remove the champion from the game do you?" "I can do with a 40% reduction on his damage... that should fix him..." "You mean you want to olaf him? lol..." "Lol... just a bit, just to see how it goes..." ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Riot, your balance team is just bad. There is no way you could come up with a trollier nerf than this. (And not the Trundle kind) You could had tried so many different minor things, instead of crushing his power window. I am a Ryze main with so many games under my belt. And each game I struggle because it is not an easy champion to play. I get camped by good players early game that I am lucky if I manage to leave the laning phase with 2 or less deaths. And the reward I hope to get is a good mid game where I can get back to. Instead of limit the hell of the Ryze with this nerf, completely destroying the thing that Ryze does best, cast a lot of spells in a short time. You will only be happy when the playrate of the champion is 1% or less. Thank you Riot!
