Thanks for pointing this out - we've updated the story to reflect those points.
A bold opinion (but understandable).
Nothing yet, sorry - we'll update when we learn more.
Apologies, I've put the link in now (paragraph 3).
You're right, and I've edited the article to reflect that.
I've changed the IE changes to read that it'll no longer offer crit chance - reason it was missing is that we tend to work off changelists, and they focus on what's new, rather than what's gone missing. As a result, a changed recipe is just a changed recipe, rather than a complete list of all the new stats, but I'll work to change that in future.
I guess this'll teach me not to write essays in the comments section xD
Only joking, not sure where the impulse comes from but I'm sure there's more to come.
No crit on IE, I can only assume the META build is going to go Shiv + BF sword, into crit item, IE, then Escence Reaver? The mana regen may make ER good value early for Sivir or Ashe, but attack speed crit items tend to be better value. Hell, maybe the increased cost to AS crit items will vary up the choices to early game after all!
You can still root someone, but only as part of a combo. I think it's really gonna hurt his win-rate at lower ranks, but higher-level players might be able to deal with it.
But yeah, a weird move from Riot imo.
Tbh, The true damage on Ryze Q is absolutely amazing changes. And his E cd is lower than yas Q late game, which is good for spamming ability like cassiopeia. But still....The slow on ryze W feels kinda weird.
Will try it once it's on live (since i'm too far to play on PBE server lol)
As far as I can tell, the 'random champion' token can only sell you champions you don't own, much the same as the re-roll system could only roll you champions you didn't own. It seems like a pretty good idea, especially for people who'll only want to buy the newest champ, but it's definitely annoying that they've removed re-rolls.
They left a note in the warning panel 2-3 days ago saying they raised the price of the mystery champion token, also raising the minimum IP value of these mystery champions. Whilst I can't remember the exact wording anymore, they said it in such a way as to clarify it's limited to champions you don't own. Good news.
The way league has worked before with these deals (previously if you re-rolled 3 champs when you owned all champs) is to give you an unlocked champion shard of a random champion that you do own. I've assumed it's the same with the mystery champion token in the store now, but after a BE spending spree I don't have enough to mess around buying champ tokens (Riot have previously stated champ tokens and boxes content are decided on moment of purchase, so buying a token now wouldn't get me Zoe come her release).
I feel more confident now that champs will still be cheap enough to keep unlocking on release, but I'll return and say for certain come her release.
