League of Legends retunes juggernauts

League of Legends’ juggernauts — what Riot Games is calling its slow, powerful melee characters — are being retuned with Patch 5.16.

The latest patch delivers a series of buffs and nerfs with the larger heroes, including Darius, Garen, Skarner, and Mordekaiser. “Tanky melee carries walk the line between power and peelability, but in order to find distinct playstyles for each of these four champions, we looked to add a little more uniqueness where we could,” Riot said.

League of Legends will be holding qualifiers for its 2015 World Championship soon, and the team is promising increased transparency in how it structures and runs the tournament. To wit, Riot will host a live group draw between first and second place finishers.

Finally, Riot’s engineers have a new blog up about how the team compresses skeleton animations for characters. Fun fact: All of League of Legends’ 125 champions boast unique animations. That’s a lot to make and store in game files!

As a Garen main ( yeah, i know… ), i must say it is a step in the right direction>
Unfortunately, these champs have severe flaws, to which most of the metachamps today can actually fight from behind, the Juggernauts are more “snowbally” dependent. This change keeps their concepts, but the biggest problem is that while most metachamps can fight a counter, or keep some utility for their team, Garen has none. He has damage. He’s tanky as hell ( less, without the 30% cc reduction ), He executes greatly, but well, he has no utility and no place in a competitive setting.
He needs a soft cc, a dash or a complete rework.
