Oh wow, I won't quote back all the people that answered to my GC post so I'll just make a broad post to cover all of it, makes it easier.
First of all, GC has been at Riot for a very short time, how many reworks do you expect one person to do, specially considering how new to the company he was?
Second, saying GC ruined World of Warcraft is both naive and ignorant. If anyone truly thinks this it's either because they heard it from someone else and never thought it through or they just have the "blame the man" mentality. If you did know WoW before GC came on board and have any sort of perception of reality and how such a big gaming company has to operate then you can't seriously blame one man for "ruining" WoW.
(Not that I agree WoW was ruined, I think it just evolved but some people have a hard time handling nostalgia or just can't accept they're tired of the game/genre or that it just dosn't suit their tastes anymore)
It just his "coincidence" joining anything = start of its fall, and u can say wow isn't "ruined" but no one will argue that wow was gaining more subs before he joined the team
And yes one guy can ruin a lot depend on his position, actually it is usually a one guy fault when something big fall, wrong decision at wrong time
And probably Lee Sin will be nerfed (to the ground baby!) and get thrown to dungeon now, Lee Sin may need it, but it was his most unique feature, nerf it what we got ? a roundhorue kick ulti with q to follow (since w now 100energy, forget it), or will he need blue now ?
Anything Ghostcrawler has worked on, if he even touches champion balance/design, wont be seen for a few months the latest. Everything we are seeing has been in development and balance talks for months now. Skarner rework started long before GC joined. Same with the rest of the reworks we have seen recently.
These Lee Sin changes have been on the backburner for a while. Riot has been mentioning trying some changes for a while now that keep his fun, emergent gameplay, but reduce the frustration of playing against him. This is their current attempt. They might have gone too far with them, but that's why they released them to the community now and it will go through testing on the PBE. They might not listen (Skarner pls), but most of the time it's a great way to learn how a champion will perform on live servers.
Heey. Is there any way to change the font? I've updated my graphic card's drivers recently and the font in LoL changed to more blurred (and smaller). My eyes don't like it, actually I can't play because of it.
It's the same in-game (chat, items etc.)
I've tried repair option but there was no change.
~Polish version because I'm too used to it. I love polish Lux' dubbing. Couldn't get used to english one. I changed back to polish after two days.
There are a ton of complaints both on the forums and reddit about these lee changes, so if they arent reverted then color me surprised, and color me off to Smite. I refuse to go down with the ship that is WoW v.2

Words to live by.
Anyone think Yasuo W will be nerfed soon ? He block any ranged, including all ultis (except Ziggs, for unknown reason)
He already is way strong with his passive and ulti on any knockup (and he can Q in his ulti)
I don't expect these changes to go through.
He doesn't play Akali much (I haven't seen him play Akali at all, but he claims he is proficient at all champions except Lux). I get that it's ARAM, but 1v4 as a marginally fed Akali.
And don't forget that these champs (Fizz, Zed, Ahri etc) have to choose: they want to flee from enemies by using their skills, or do damage. If they used escapes as "flee" option, they do significantly less damage than they could
The way I see it, the only problem with Lee is his VERY early level burst(his level ~2-3 invades are brutal), his mobility is part of what makes him Lee. I don't mind the ulti change, because it achieves the goal that they're shooting for, making it a decision between utility and damage. The passive change is silly, it forces him into 1 style of build lategame.
The W change is just dumb. The problem with the way they're planning to change it right now is that it REFUNDS energy if you dash to a non-ward. Great, I get 50 energy back from the 100 energy cost. That doesn't matter if you can't GET to 100 energy before dying. Make it have different costs for wards and non-wards(that should be possible, idk), or use the Thresh-Q solution that they've also mentioned, where it's not the cost but the cooldown that gets "refunded" if used in a certain way(in Thresh's case that way is actually hitting the Q)
Riot should just focus on champions that are actually problems(or "toxic" as they like to call it) instead of trying to completely change champions that are pretty much as balanced as it gets. Lee Sin always being part of all metas is a good thing, his kit makes him work in lots of teamcomps. That's what Riot should try to make more champions like.
I guess we'll just have to wait and see if they're going to change him completely or keep him as the Lee Sin he is and has been for a long time.
Lee can simply go " HUZZAH" leap in, slap kick" HUZZAH, SO LONG" and leave again.
Edit: Jax too, can leap towards a ward, but not leave again.

In the WoD Beta... o.o
Complaining about Lee Sin's mobility while ignoring the fact that Leblanc exists isn't making your argument look strong.
