It usto be harder to 1 shot, and there wern't many champions that could do this reliably (usual suspects Rengar, LeBlanc)
now it doesn't matter what you play, if your not a tank you get 1 shot, like what's the point if everyone has this much damage we might aswell turn this game into a team coin flip simulator. Yesterday in one game our botlane had a bad start and they lost their turret at 4 minutes right after dying a second time - now I can understand that you get bad games but how the %%%% does enemy botlane with jungler secure 4/0 and a tower in 4 minutes, you can't tell me that's intended game design?
Who the hell is balancing this shit... and I'm even more bothered that when I go to the boards I don't see any comments on this at all, am I the only one who sees a problem with this horrible gameplay? from no brain 1 shots to oppressive snowballs and these ridiculous early towers
**Shocking! I looked at my games played last 20 games, there was 2 games ending 15-16 minutes, 3 games ending in 19 minutes, only 2 games lasted over 30 minutes, that's 25% games I played which ended before a team could surrender 20! Only 10% of games got to lategame!**
The average game length in December 2016 was over 2 minutes longer across the board compared to today, and this trend is more pronounced at the top elo. Challengers right now are at an average of 22 minutes per game! Think about that for a moment, that means for every game there is ending in the lategame there is most likely a game ending at 15 minutes.
that thought is very scary because it's giving a very clear theme that late game strategies and picks are going to be ineffective in season 8
