    League of Legends are not always balanced. Actually always un-balanced. However I haven't seen any other multiplayer competitive game that constantly balance patching & meta-changing their game than League of Legends, and I think that is the main reason why League of Legends can successfully service their game for 10+ years. Balancing team is the heart of this game.

    The only problem with this, that people dont just want to be balanced, but to win as much as possible. And when they cannot rank up from silver to platinum under two days with their selected champ, they start to mock riot, how unbalanced it is. While in reality, they still have around 50% of the winrate. Also it is far too oblivious champions who just got realesed will destroy the first month, because of the marketing, but it's understandable Riot don't wanna talk about it loudly, then they nerf it to the ground anyway as they always do. This is the view of someone who is looking from the outside, not in the side of any team. But for an advice it would be interesting to hear a situational game about teemo, what specifically went wrong with him, and how you actually solved the problem, you just mentioned it, but left in me a great question in a really interesting topic. How did you accomplish to balance a hero who do really well in challanger but just ok in other leagues?

    After playing league off and on for 10 or so years, I can say from experience that every single thing in this video is 100% lies lol. If you actually attempted to balance the game, it would actually be balanced. Just sayin.

    Teemo for sure is on the same powerlevel as an akali or gwen or irelia. Sona for sure is on the same power level as pyke. Leblanc for sure is on the same powerlevel as qiana or yone. Trundle for sure can compete with volibear. wariwck and Rengar for sure are on the same powerlevel as kayn/ gwen /viego / hecarim. Just admit you didnt care for balancing for years and threw away a beautiful game simply for more and more money...

    It couldn't be worse with Leagues balancing than it is today. Suddenly Riot posts a statement about how they balance stuff. Coincidence? I don't think so. It sounds like a bad excuse to me. How about finally nerfing Yi after years of people arguing in low elo? He can't be nerfed? So where's the rework?!
