As someone who played around the time of the "Better nerf Irelia meme", I think it's misunderstood a little today. Irelia was nerfed twice in quick succession in season 2. Right around the time some champions were far more broken than her. The second nerf came in a patch that did not touch any of the champs considered far more OP in S2, like Mordekaiser. So the joke was about Riot overlooking a ton of broken champions in favor of nerfing something else, not about Riot hating Irelia specifically.

nah, it wasnt because of that. it was because after players found out how to play irelia and where to play her (with trinity as the way to go, then usually hexdrinker into tank) riot didnt give a fk about her. they nerfed/buffed things like mordekaiser, lb, kassadin, introduced and removed BC meta, DFG, while ignoring that irelia was overtuned AF. they addressed thing like maw, wriggles, and all the other jungle shit, brought yasuo etc into the game, all while barely touching irelia. so people started a subtle shitstorm. on nearly every patchnote people kept saying: yeah, how about you nerfed irelia, to which people, who grew to love here made it a meme "yeah, better nerf irelia". new players and websites misunderstood that meme and spread the rumor that she was nerfed the whole time. (what you mentioned played a big part, but isnt the whole story about the meme) :)

@Ruxbon i explained it a little better in another comment, but at the time, the original Evelynn had just had her stun removed in the summer of 2011 and replaced with a slow, which "ruined" the character and they left her this way for months until they figured out a stealth overhaul and a rework for her and Twitch. Nobody wanted that to happen to their favorite champion. While it's true that they nerfed her, those were only really minor nerfs, and she actually saw a couple of buffs as well in that time where irelia mains cried about her only getting nerfs. She was never at risk of turning out that way because the truth of the matter is that she was overloaded by league standards at the time. But the Evelynn nerf loomed on in people's heads.

tbh, 5ms is a big nerf, ik this is a joke but base ms nerf no matter how small the number is will never be a small nerf, reason is because you always move throughout the game, 5ms loss for a 30mins game of nonstop moving will result in a lot of distance, not to mention lower ms will make it much harder to dodge skillshots, an example of how big it this nerf is is that karthus was a meta jungler at one point of the game, he was top tier, but then he received a 5ms nerf reducing his base ms from 330 to 325, he dropped immediately to A or B tier from god tier

29:08 I totally disagree with the statement that people dont want something to be fair to play against. In fact a lot of players I know hate nearly all the new releases because of their unfun/unfair kit when playing against. Some of them left the game, because they didnt want to stick around til they are kinda finetuned. Akali was/is the worst of them all with Irealia and Sylas close behind. It took Riot over half a year to finally get rid of her stealth, which was a major point why she is banned 80% of the time. I banned her every single game since I didnt want to deal with this shit. This led to playing a ton against Yasuo and Irealia in that time since I cant ban them. Zoe is a fine champion atm, but it took so long, that even now there is like a switch set to hate her.

When I play against someone, what makes it a fun experience is knowing that both of us are applying our knowledge of the game and of our champions to make skill based decisions and try to one-up each other. Knowing that there is a dinamic, ever-shifting reasoning behind us doing what we do makes it engaging. Even if a I feel that a Champion is just more powerful than mine, it is presented to me as a fun challenge, trying to work around that champion's strenghts to find their weak spots. I am OK with Leblanc's E range and root time being extremely long for an assasin because I know I can dodge it, I can sidestep it, I can cause her to whiff it. If I walk in a straight line like a headless chicken, she will hit me not because the ability is overpowered or unfair, but because I made a mistake. I know that it takes the opponent skill to read my movements and land it. I am NOT OK with Sylas' W being a dash with execute damage and self heal because there is no way for me to apply my skill to influence the result: I know only one thing: Sylas' W is going to hit me. Every. Time. He. Wants. Because no skill is involved in casting it. No aim, no movement prediction, no pattern recognition. Nothing. Just point and click. And no amount of skill on my part will ever influence the result. I don't want all champs to be perfectly equally powerful. What I want is not to find myself into a situation where the enemy champ is about to do something that it can always do, regardless of the skill level of the player controlling them, and where I don't have any way to use my own skills to counter that something. Because that is what makes a champion frustrating to play against.

My only problem with the rework is that I feel like the damage reduction skill is out of place for her kit. If they move the on hit magic damage from passive and healing from Q to a "newer" W, she would feel more like irelia to me. The attack speed portion of the passive is fine as long as it was balanced with above. I have no problem with the new E and R. Both great upgrades for how her kit flows.

2021 here first time watching this video. so much memories playing the old irelia. Especially 2013 to 2017. back then I claimed the rank with irelia along to diamond 2. Then later went to uni and played less and less and in 2018 someone told me the rework and I went back to the game played some old irelia month before her rework. She did teach me a lot about the game though. Back then I did not have good awareness and control of jungle when I play top lane but when playing irelia, just like what you said, you need to be very careful with details of the game rather than your champions abilities. The way of controlling the lane minions and deception to draw them to try kill you under turret. I would say about 70 to 80 percent time I can snowball with her back then. I recently came back to the game and trying to master the new irelia. Tbh, I dont feel too much different from the old one. I can use her q quite good but not her e, it's quite a pain as her e is really the wild card that can turn the tide sometimes. I love her new passive and ult. One note for your video is that I think the way to nerf irelia is to nerf her kits, like trinity and other stuff you'd get when playing irelia. I remember in s4 I'd just try to get trinity within 10 mins of the game and then just build a warmog's armor, this will normally happen between 10 to 15 mins of the game. I normally fight people at level 4 level 7 and level 11. She is really strong at these levels. Later I think they made trinity more expensive so the time you get would be delayed so is the warmog, so she is not as strong as her use to be but nonetheless she was really strong in s5 and s6 and I am pretty sure no changes was done to her abilities. There were rumours that before her initial release, her w had 120 true damage at full level but it would be disastrous for other champions and quite unbalanced so they didn't do that. But nonetheless 75 was really good damage normally with shine you can win a fight easily on top(btw I like to take attack damage runne not the attack speed back then.), the double damage shine brings with the true damage was unbearable for most top laners.

I played Irelia as one of my few toplane champions and she was always a fun pick and ever relevant because she had no core items apart from trinity force. The fact that she had literally no scaling apart from indirect scaling for W with attack speed (more attacks, more sustain and true damage) and Q with attack damage (higher execute threshold means easier resets) gave her huge flexibility in her build. If ever I was losing lane hard I could always build full tank after sheen and complete trinity later on to still become a relevant source of damage while primarily I could just dive in and stun the adc. Her E was an extremely cool mechanic, all it needed to become better in todays game was a clear visual when it would stun, making it both easier to use correctly and easier to counter (even though countering it wasn't easy as the e would stun you even if you flashed, kinda like Garen ult). Also using a skillshot ult to get targets low enough to get resets made for fun gameplay, especially in midlane where you could use the raptor camp to do so. For me Irelia's primary role was a drain tank fighter, basically what conqueror makes out of every fighter today. You had enough damage to threaten the enemy carries but not enough to oneshot them, enough tankiness and tenacity to not instantly die when you engaged into 5 enemies and you were the ultimate Rammus, Malphite and Maokai killer, champions that were unkillable back then when your adc had died in a teamfight, meaning the could often stop you from getting objectives after a won fight. But not when you played Irelia.

I started League in late season 8 and Irelia was the first champion i ever mained, I've just recently started getting into playing her reworked form and it's a bit harder than i was expecting. Well what would life be without a bit of challenge, although the stun being moved from point and click to a skillshot is defiantly an interesting change.

Irelia is one of the most mesmerizing and beautiful champions league has to offer and I've wanted to main her due to her fantastic skins and smooth animations, even though her kit is not my playstyle and I don't play toplane often.

I joined League of Legends at Season 7 so I don't really know much of Irelia's history until her rework. Even after her rework, she was nerfed the most from what I experienced with that champion. Even with the nerfs, I still manage to find a way to make Irelia strong. Stay strong, Irelia mains!

"The music, the art, the abilities, the lore, the skins, the gameplay, coupled together to be one of the most exciting things in gaming. She is so fun, so fast, so quick and feels so smooth to play" Sounds like the perfect pve MMO character, not a pvp champion to invalidate every other champion similar to it

totally agree on your opinion of the best rework, i mean i loved her q before but the rest was so lame then they reworked everything but her q and now i play mostly her, always mid. i know people call her cancer but playing her is just the most fun ive had on a video game theres always a thing you couldve done better

Ive been playing lol since season 2 and always been a support main and never really stopped playing but then I took a break from lol 2 weeks before Irelia rework released, i took me like 9 months to even think about playing again. When i came back i found that 2 of my favorite champs of all time received a rework (Irelia and Akali) and i tried them both out. Believe me when i say that ive never felt so strong, happy and motivated to play league of legends until i played this 2 reworked champions. This 2 are the reason im back playing regularly and i love them so damn much. The nerfs on both of them really hitted hard at least for me because of my new playstyle do to both of them because im only used to play support champions so this was a new experience for me. It didn’t last long for me since i played them too late but man im telling you that month felt amazing i cannot compare any of my moments with this game than that first month maining those 2 and getting them to M7 in like 1 week for each. All that you said at the end of the video, i felt all that. Loved the video! ❤️

I was an Irelia main until the rework. I just prefer the old Irelia. The new Irelia is more efficient and effective against team fights while the old one is more ideal for one on one. Nevertheless, I enjoyed playing the old Irelia since I get to strategize more on how to cut down the enemy team one by one. My gameplay with Irelia, although predominantly top, was more like a roaming assassin like jungle. And it was always fun to cull the enemy team number for a better fight. That being said, everything the old Irelia could do, the new Irelia could do better and I only speak because of sentiment and my inability to remaster her.

One thing I’ve noticed about rito is when a champion doesn’t fit in into their intended mold they change it to make it THEIR mold, not the players choices.

4:30 Oooh boy, let me tell you a tale of the old range carry dominance in Dota (2009-2010). If you chose a melee carry, your first core was Vanguard and Hood. Not only were Range carries more dominant, burst damage gankers were a lot more dangerous as well due to the lower use of observe wards. Now couple that with games generally having 2 roaming CC supports as early as lv1 and you're promised a bad time. Shadow Fiend, Drow Ranger, Medusa were the way to go for quite a while. This of course didn't matter all that much in pubs, but in organized matches it was quite the mountain to climb as a melee carry.

Irelia would be fun if she had any of her old strengths still. Overall as an Irelia main the champion feels too reliant on R and a very slow passive, and the champion has no reliable sustain anymore especially since lifesteal has been changed.

The conclusion about irelia at the end of clip is true. Irelia is fun to play if you play well not because its over load of damge. Even the nerf riot still keep how smooth irelia play mechanic. I used to angry about her passive nerf (lost dmg per stack) but it make sense to not made her OP. TF is one of the success irelia player still balance team have to care about overflow of damage brust late game champ (exp.rengar/evelyn) I dont want riot to nerf it to the ground but more expose weakness (my though is assassin should dominate mid to early late game and tone down the more late game) But its may be league game is faster than before (25-40 min) cause too much assassin flow in game now

I have been playing league since season one, hearing you talk about how bad it feels to have your mains reworked hit right home, these are the champs that i have mained in all that time (and yes i have always been a one trick pony): Irelia, Vlad, Ryze (through 3 iterations of him) and Swain, in 2016 i stopped playing for a little over a year, just to come back to a game where i didnt how how to play any champion anymore - felt very alienating :( To all those who will definitely experience this in the future, dont give up dont be sad, hold dear your memory and embrace something new :)

@Sauron I agree, the kit is very different than what it was. Many people mained him for his autoattacking/lifestealing aspect. They decided to drift from aa based champ to a caster bruiser. I never really fell in love with the old aatrox but the new one is much better imo

Skadfled the good times were enough, they slaughtered his kit, and they knew the failed his rework. Literally a week after the rework they changed his entire kit’s stats. That’s not a healthy rework is it?

@Sauron he's waay more viable than his old version and every Champion has their own counter champions. People tend to say that old aatrox was better but they always forget that he was literally unplayable for 3/4 of his existence and only remember the "good times".

I was an Irelia main for a long time, but I can’t for the life of me play the reworked version. Her E and passive just don’t click with me. But I really like Kayn, and I was transitioning to being a Kayn main around the rework time anyways, so it worked out.

Irelia has been my main top laner ever since season 7 (I started S6 and discovered her in S7). I tried my best to master her until I constantly destroying Yasuo one-tricks in bronze(Yasuo players in bronze are easy to read). But now that she's reworked, she's stuck at mastery 5 and I switched to Fiora.
