do you remember when he was good? At the time, he was the viable version of Rammus after Rammus got the nerf hammer.

Skarner's old kit had very little counterplay. If you got slowed once, you were done. He'd exoskeleton, shurelia's and sometimes flash as well to ult a carry (or anyone but a full tank, really) and drag them into your team and they'd become nothing.

The reason they couldn't just replace his E with an ability worth ranking early was because it would make him overpowered again.

the number one complaint is "omg they took away his permaslow wtf that defined him." 2 things, 1) his ult defines him and 2) try imagining playing against him instead of as him. That perma slow was too good. It was a perma slow. Hell it was even good in top lane (though only like 3 people in the world played top scorpion).

With the rework they put counterplay patterns into his playstyle. First thing to mention is that now due to the gold item restriction new skarner isn't able to get golem and shurelia's like the days of old (though an ally could provide the same boost). Second thing is that his actual MS steroid now ramps up, similar to rammus so that if you use it in vision of someone they're forewarned that "hey a scorpion is gunning it at your face, burn your abilities to get out or ur cooked." It's still a crap ton of movespeed, the ramp up just gives people a damn chance to get away from the new anti-flash Scorpion Deathlock.

And finally they give you a new ranged slow. Yeah it's hard to hit but it should be since it's a 2.5 second slow. 30% isn't the highest amount in the world but 2.5 seconds is a long time to be slowed. Think back to fiddle's old fear and you'll get roughly the time that you'll be slowed. What this does is it removes Skarner's permaslow chain with Red buff and crystal slash and instead changes it to "if I land my E, you're going to get slowed by red buff next and then you're going to die/be permaslowed anyways, so flash now or forever feed your lane"

Is he weak after the rework? I don't think so, but I'm also not entirely sure. If he is he won't be too far from being great with a buff here or there. The complaints people are making are ignorant and baseless and most people are just riding the hate train because they saw a reddit top comment say it was a nerf and got all flustered without thinking about it.

I don't think will change the game too much regardless.

Not with the likes of Vi and co around.

Skarner can be hilariously anti-fun when he is good.

People are complaining because his play rate was like 2% because he was only good in some situations thanks to his perma slow. Now he will have a 0% play rate and is never a good pick

Oh? So you're disregarding something that apparently a lot of people thing . . .because a lot of people think it? M'kay. I haven't read any opinions about Skarner on Reddit, the second that I saw that they removed his perma slow I said he was useless, it doesn't take someone holding your hand to look at someone's kit and see if they are useful or not. The only reason to pick Skarner was his perma slow and ult, mostly the perma slow. Now you never pick him ever, and just pick a different jungler who does more damage while being tankier while also adding CC.
