well you can now. but dont worry ap champs. we took your ability to get 18 magic pen by stacking boots because we know you dont like to win games vs anyone who buys mr or hexdrinker.
like i dont even see the point in making these changes either.

ap's get the low end of the stick with almost every mastery. fleet footwork is able to crit again next patch and we know how much you love to build crit right ap champs? and the tree meant for them is a joke and they are gunna nerf the one good thing about it next patch.

its ok though guys hecarim still gets his adaptive damage 4k movespeed ganks from the jungle with duckblade procs

Riot shot the balance out the window in favor of ADs after Season 4.

I loved LOL when it came out, Season 2 was great, Season 3 went even further in awesomeness and Season 4 was ridiculously fun and you had the most variety in it in terms of builds and playstyle.... heck you could even mage and ADC jungle with almost anyone and effectively which now only a few can do or even if you have to with everyone, you'll have to be really inefficient at it.

After Season 4, Season 5 and all the other Seasons just started going down from their falling like a rock.

And the Assassin Season 6.... worst Season ever. So much catering was done to ADs patch after patch its not even funny.
In each and every AD item some form of defensive mechanism is there built into it.
BT - Shield and sustain
PD - Reduce damage of enemy you hit.
MC - Free Cleanse and sustain.
EON - Free Banshees.
Duskblade.... a pure Offensive item no defense here... nope... here you go a ward finder. Might save your life.
Ghost Blade.... this time we promise no stats.... or defense mechs... nope we lied... Here you go. A free Ghost.
Death Dancer - Sustain from from both AAs and Spells and burst delaying for chances of survival. Just to make sure AP champs that go ADC don't abuse it with their spells... we gonna reduce that spell healing to physical damage spells only. They can purchase Hextech Gunblade with 40 AD they might not want for Spell Healing instead?
Gaurdian Angel... we don't like that AP champs are reviving, so we catered it for ADs only. f*** APs. They can die.
We like how APs can Zhonya, so we are putting an item called Stop Watch that gives you a similar effect in the AD's Gaurdian Angel too. Isn't this fun?
Hexdrinker/Maw... Lets put a shield built into a an item with MR and AD already... a big shield btw.
We think Hexdrinker shield isn't enough or maybe some people might not wanna buy it but still love the shield... so we are giving a free Mini Hexdrinker in new Runes... just to make sure APs don't abuse it against ADs, its shield type will be magic damage and not adaptive.

"Magic damage is oppressive as with new Season 8 stats, nobody has upped MR... fair enough. APs don't get Armor increase and get small miniscule Hp or HP regen increase....... you know what... f*** it. Slap 5 more lethality into the Lethality items so you can have 60 Lethality when you buy 3. AND DONT YOU DARE INCREASE 1 MPEN IN LIANDRY!!! UNDERSTOOD!!!!"
Play not to win but to push yourself beyond your own limits and you'll eventually learn to rise above.

Stacking sorc boots (or any item in s8) is just some meme s*** so who cares.

The new runes and masteries are extremely generous to AP champions and shafted a good portion of AD champions over. The removal of MR glyphs and HP seals buffed basically every magic damage dealing champion too. AP supports (brand/karma/zilean, hell people are even going xerath), tops (rumble is S tier now, swain is good as well, teemo is a monster in soloq), and mids (a lot of them) are all supreme right now

This is probably one of the best moments AP champions have been in for a very long time but the third wave mage mains on this board will refuse to admit it

A tank buys one mr item and can ignore mages with voidscepter
A an adc can melt a tank with three armor items like a 1000 degree knife through butter

dude scimitar, hexdrinker, and ghostblade have ALWAYS had those effects. these are not part of AD creep.
Why is it called 'common sense' when it is so rare these days?

The only one worst off is yomous
