You killed off Viktor with that cost increase partially.
Ahri and Xerath, as well as Ziggs are long forgotten in meta (i can play them perfectly , they will feel useless whatever i do).
I can pull with Lux....oooor bore myself to death with my beloved Swain.
So yeah...partially gutted, but there are options.
On the other side - i would really....REALLY like you to gut one group. And no - not assassins. Not even close.
What i mean are - utility mages. Supposed "jack of all trades" that should exchange some lane presence for utility. My sorry ass.
I am talking about lane Karma, Orianna and Lulu. They bring way too much safety, speed, sheilds, for almost no proper counter measures.
Its quite simple- if assassin depends on rolling in lane to have a presence, utility mage needs his lane presence to be gutted. You choose teamfight - you will not have proper capability for lane kill, or equal damage whatsoever.
Ok...since im done with being pissed of - downvote it.
