So whats the deal with tanks now?

Keeping hearing the new items make them melt too fast. Is this true or exaggeration? Sounds like a huge change to gameplay if true and possibly a bad place for a lot of characters such as naut or sej who already are going to have trouble with new jungle

right now the tankier teams win late game. I think they are trying to stop that in season 3, which ultimately makes more champs viable picks.

Don't forget that this is partially due to resistances being more expensive for fewer defenses.

I'm interested to see how this is going to work.

resists down across the board

on the other hand, Frozen Fist is possibly OP.

So first we nerf sustain to the ground, and now tanks?

Riot why do you keep nerfing my roles?

Frozen fists sounds so wrong.

yeah right now tanky teams win late game. Or pretty much any team that has 3-4 people with GA in it. But you can't win on tanky alone though, you have to dish out damage as well.

I just played against Shen, Nunu, Leona on their team and we won, I was singed, our WW went tanky, our adc and mid both had GA but they ate up their "tanks"
