Olaf nerfs = some of the worst we've ever seen?

#1Lord_WoobiePosted 1/25/2013 2:15:32 AM
Undertow's ( Q ) slow now fades over time.
Vicious Strikes ( W ) cooldown increased to 16 at all ranks from 12 seconds.
Ragnarok no longer grants passive Armor penetration and instead grants 10/20/30 armor pen while Ragnarok is active.

That ult passive nerf looks pretty gnarly...
And the others are pretty considerable, to add insult to injury.

To be fair, he deserved it.

Not happy with committing just murder, he had to go and dirty the courthouse, too!? GUILTY - Judge

No one can say he didn't need some kind of nerf. This was probably a bit much all at once, but he needed something.

Olaf was just too scary.

With the armor pen changes, his passive armor pen became much stronger then It was suppose to be. So It needed a nerf for sure.

It's about bloody time, he's been OP for way too long now.

He'll still be OP though. Something about can't CC him, he can CC you, build tanky do more DMG for massive true dmg nuke on shortest CD ever made just screams broken to me.

Those nerfs don't really seem that bad. Moves him from 'IMMOVABLE OBJECT WTF OMFG WHAT IS HAPPENING TO MY LIFE BAR' tier to 'Hard to win against' tier.

Q nerf isn't a big deal, if you are chasing someone you will still be going faster, it just lets people maybe get to their team.

W nerf isn't a huge deal, I mean W is good but probably the least of his amazing kit. With max CDR it only had, what, 2-4 seconds off cooldown?

R nerf is the most justified with the black cleaver and the new arm pen changes.

I think he will be fine.

It's pretty hard to kite a good Olaf that knows how to hit those axes. As long as they pick them up and have the mana they will catch up to you. At least they give a 'little' breathing room.

He's going to fall into obscurity again. Olaf is so popular because you could build zero damage and he'd still deal lots of it. These changes will force him to build a Black Cleaver or something. That's nice thinking from Riot, but they went too far.

Jungle Olaf is probably a joke now, too. They nerfed his only form of CC.

This is horrible. i hate you riot. Olaf is one of my favorite champs, and now their removing so much from him. Can i understand the passive on his ult being removed? I can, do i like it? Not at all. His Q, and W should have been left alone imo. Who honestly got max cdr on olaf? I never used to, and i think if anything needs a nerf it needs to be his E, not any of the other things, besides maybe his ult.
