EvelynnSquare Evelynn

Niche: The Stealth Assassin
  • Eve and Riot haven't really had a good relationship ever since her release, and she's probably been one of the most problematic champions in the game to balance and rework, as most attempts to change her have led to her becoming either unplayably bad or crushingly overpowered, and generally unhealthy to have around. Even her identity is contested (what is she? Should she be more like a vampire or succubus? Does she really need bondage gear?), though she's also well-loved by a core fanbase for many of the features that have proven the most problematic. Chief among them is her iconic perma-stealth, which is at the core of her tremendous global threat and unpredictability in-game, but has so far forced her to have weak combat capabilities, while also working mostly as an extra expense in true sight for the enemy team during the laning phase. Despite being officially an assassin, her dysfunctional kit and poor late-game scaling have forced her to build like a mediocre bruiser, and she never feels exceptionally powerful even when playing at her best, partly because her ability set doesn't leave much room for skill expression: all of her damage is point-and-click (Hate Spike, her main damage source, doesn't even involve pointing), the only real window of downtime she has is her ultimate, and even her passive doesn't carry nearly as much strategic gameplay as it could. The goal of this rework is, above all, to engineer proper highs and lows in her power, and thereby allow Evelynn to have moments of great success while giving her opponents opportunities to turn the tables on her. While the aim here isn't really to forge an identity for Eve, it would make sense for her to have a running theme of shadows and night, as she somewhat does now, and perhaps blend in some of her sadistic, seductive and even dance-based elements on a gameplay level.

YasuoSquare Yasuo

Niche: The Utility Melee Carry
  • Yasuo's been a contentious champion ever since his release, breaking new ground in offering unparalleled mobility, crowd control and utility on top of heavy damage. He started out as an experimental champion, in many ways, and offered a new model for melee carries, one that has proved decently successful so far. Yasuo himself, however, has a few lingering issues: though he was intended to be relatively stable and gold-independent enough to do consistently well in teamfights, he's turned out to be fairly snowbally, often chain-killing multiple enemies at a time or falling before he can make a major impact. Additionally, his power's fluctuated heavily over time, with his abilities often feeling either way too strong to fight against or unsatisfying to use. A large part of the problem comes from his ability set being a bit too loaded: his hamfisted double crit passive is heavily responsible for his snowballiness in lane, the armor penetration on his ultimate is tremendously powerful without being too visible, and the ramping damage on Sweeping Blade has no real impact in the late game. The goal of these changes is to streamline his power by trimming some of the fat on his kit (especially his crit passive, which would also become obsolete in view of an alternate crit system that would reward consecutive attacks and abilities rather than random chance) and forcing his early game power down into a lower, more stable curve, while still allowing him to scale tremendously well and letting him survive teamfights even better.
