Morello Chats About Buffing Melee AD Carries

Melee AD Carries had a brief moment of power when Blade of the Ruined King was released, but so did melee bruisers. But now that it's been nerfed to a more reasonable state, glass cannon AD carries still suffer greatly in melee range, namely Fiora, Master Yi, and Tryndamere.

So is Riot going to buff them any time soon? Here's what Morello had to say:
No, the answer is "we can't just buff an ADC that is melee because they're binary in their success/failure; either too strong or UP."

Fixing these characters, including Fiora, is something we're working on, but is longer-term than a numbers-fix. Source
As to how they're going to fix it, he declared:
Basically some items, but also play patterns that tend to have more escape potential or upfront burst. It'd make them more "assassin-y".
Meanwhile, over on the solo queue tier list I know that several of you have stated that champions like Fiora are actually viable at the moment and need another look at.

What do you guys think? Do melee AD Carries need a buff? What could be done? Comment below!

    Hmm...probably sometime this week, wouldn't want to pull an Elementz :x

  3. Hi would you mind letting me know which webhost you're utilizing? I've
    loaded your blog in 3 different web browsers and I must
    say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a good internet hosting
    provider at a fair price? Thanks, I appreciate it!

    Here is my web blog: Nike Air Jordan

  4. Okay, so - I do love Fiora. Not just because she's sexy xD

    But I do wanna see her Q be able to be used as as get away that doesn't have to target - like used to go over walls (kinda like Ez and Kass have as a get-away)

    That'd be great, it'd help her in so many ways. She can get away if she runs in the jungle with her Q like that currently, or if she Q's to an enemy or a minion.

    Her E is fine, in my opinion. I suppose they could move the W passive to E, or her current passive to E, and give her a new W and passive. I don't really see it as being needed at the moment.

    Yi's fine, tbh. Although he's not at the level of balance of most champions.

    Shyvana I can't comment much on, I know i'd rather top lane with her but I don't use her often.

  5. Yay, looking forward to this.

  6. I didn't know tryndamere needed buffing.... they should just bring back stacking tiamats to the ceiling so fiora can do what she does best. On a side note i'm really glad your always bringing us the latest news SSJSuntastic
