: Can't hit your enemy with the blade? Git gud. Seriously now, the only one who sees the indicator is you. It's even possible that your enemy does not see you casting Q at all. You may as well go into a bush, press q and get out to make a surprise-cut-your-neck. And just because people don't bitch about champs to get nerfed it doesn't mean they didn't needed nerfs. Let's remember what you could and couldn't do against old Darius: * Poke? Sure, if it's ranged * Trade? Sure, if you want to lose it. * All in? yeah sure. * Gank? Yes; the only way to beat a good Darius. No escapes = very effective ganks. * Farm as a melee champ? GET OVER HERE! * Sustain? No mana increase/lvl on Q + low mana cost = sustain useless. He was THE lane bully, picking Darius top meant you were gonna make your enemy laner's laning phase a nightmare. He didn't deserve big nerfs, just something to punish him for doing wrong(or reward enemies for doing good against him). And no, I've actually played little matches against Darius. Actually, I only remember playing 3 ranked matches against him, all as Rumble where I got fed everytime. But of course that's because, just like you, I can't lose the lane when I'm playing my main.

Actually, I only remember playing 3 ranked matches against him, all as Rumble where I got fed everytime. But of course that's because, just like you, I can't lose the lane when I'm playing my main. He got punished for doing something wrong before, for an example when he misses his E, that's when he can get kited A LOT. Now, it seems like Riot and a lot of others agree with me, why else would he get a buff? No point in arguing anymore. What I said was my own opinion, I compared the new one to the old one. Yes Darius became more of a teamfighter, he now excels at that because of the passive, but the problem is to actually get 5 stacks in teamfights against GOOD players. When people figure out how to play against the new darius (dashing onto him, so he cannot hit you with the Q-blade), and just staying very close to him in melee range, he will be quite easy to duel against, because if he hits with the handle it doesn't apply the passive. ANYWAY, he will get a buff, and I'm fine with that, that's what I want at least.
: Late-game Darius is godlike (as long as you use the new builds), he's not weak throughout the game.

He's not godlike late game, Nasus, Jax, Irelia, Mordekaiser, Yi, you name it all defeats him if they both have equal score. The only time where your damage is actually quite decent is when you get into bloodrage mode, if you ult someone you will be able to get it very fast, however - you cannot do that all the time, it's situational.

: He's getting buffed on the PBE. And don't act like Darius wasn't a monster bully lane before the rework. He needed nerfs about his dominance. >Just overall weak throughout the whole game. Let's take an example, new darius vs Jax: Jax has a way better time early now against Darius, he might even be able to beat him, not only that but from any point after that Jax just shits on Darius, even mid-late. No darius isn't a True late game champ, he takes too long to get bloodrage up in a duel, he loses to the likes of master yi, jax, nasus etc, but also somewhat early. You can't compare 2 different classes like that. >His bloodrage takes too long to activate. You need 5 stacks or a kill with your ult, until you get those 5 stacks you're probably already dead by the adc or just low on health. You still have the passive, this one is a NEW passive. >His main problem getting kited a lot hasn't been improved although all these nerfs. As I said earlier, still extremely vulnerable to kiting. No-one said he's getting help against kiting. Kiting is darius' counter. Juggernaut = easily kiteable. >Why did you implement a fk delay on his Q? Now he just feels clunky and it's harder to hit with and if you miss it you get even more punished than before! And yeah, its damage sucks. The only good thing about it is that it looks way more realistic. Q now **HEALS** for a portion of your missing health. Just how can you complain? It now scales with **total AD** instead of bonus AD, which means quite the same damage as before and it costs less mana. >No more ninja-fast kills, meaning flash+Q when the target is low on health. It can still work, but the delay ruins it. You can still do that. You only need to use your **brain**. **As a conclusion, you need to read context on changes, stop talking just like that. By doing that you prove you're nothing but a childish player who's mad because he can no longer stomp his enemy laners by just playing Darius.**

By doing that you prove you're nothing but a childish player who's mad because he can no longer stomp his enemy laners by just playing Darius.** Meh I still stomp most of them. And yes I can compare two different champions like that, because they're both top lane. Also, he never needed a nerf before lol, so it seems like you're the one who was pissed off about the old darius, maybe you had problem with him in-lane, I don't. The reason why I can stomp? Because I'm a Darius-main. I played him well in bronze I play him well in platinum, it doesn't matter. However, this change doesn't satisfy me. Also, his Q only heals if you hit the opponent with the actual blade, which you won't be able to do 100% in lane most of the time. Also, Darius was only strong against players who didn't know how to play against him. I for one didn't have problem facing my own main in lane.
: I don't play Darius, but I'm gonna assume that his W counts as an autoattack and gives him a stack? Autoattack -> W -> Tiamat, throw in a Q somewhere, 4 stacks within 1-2 seconds... Surely you can hit 1 more autoattack for that last stack to get tons of bonus AD...

Surely you can hit 1 more autoattack for that last stack to get tons of bonus AD... As Nipah said Tiamat is no stack, but also sometimes Q isn't a stack either (if you hit it with the handle).

: He is getting buffs soon so that is a start. His Q heal is amazing and a 90% slow is lovely on his W, you can't just build pure damage anymore, get tanky.
You never did build Darius pure damage. His heal only applies when you hit with the blade, good luck having 100% accuracy on that due to the delay. His W decreased the enemy's AS before (good against jax, fiora, you name it) it no longer does.
