the main problem with Riot Balance are like two main things
1. They are reactive instead of Proactive. Simply put Riot doesnt change cancer until it hits frontpage of reddit and the bad PR starts rolling in.
On-Hit Tank Teemo terrorized people for like an entire season and only recently got nerfed.
Currently Tank Fizz is another super cancer rolling soloQ but Riot doesnt give a shit because its "not a problem" yet.
Akali sustain and shroud has needed nerfs since forever ago but Akali is such a dogshit boring champ nobody plays her hince why nerf her?.
Mordekaiser with Rylais is absolutely fucking STUUUUPID right now and nobody gives a rats ass.
then there are lots of other cancers that tend to lie "dormant" and only ever resurface a blue moon when the meta suites them. Its shit riot KNOWS for a fact is cancer but they dont care to actually do anything about it.

Caitlyn the queen of METAGAEM babby mode laning
Vladimir the manaless sustainer of le epic scaling
Soraka the healbot
GNAR GADDAA :))))
all this shit thats super unfun to play against that people ALWAYS complain about when its meta but Riot NEVER fucking FIXES IT. they just nerf them until they go away and EVENTUALLY RESURFACE.Like Ra constantly having to fend off Apophis. Holy shit. JSUT FUCKING FIX THEM ALREADY SHEESH
2nd. Riot is really fucking inconsistent with their own ideals. Old Nidalee spears are cancer because if one hits you go bye-bye but Zoe Isnt? Getting damage for building tanky is something theyve always avoided except now every tank gets resist scaling damage cuz Rammus/Malphite needs to top damage charts for some reason? Healing is cancer as decreed by Morello so here is 70% heal and shield power from items and runes?!?!?
who the actual fuck is balancing overthere? Where is the fucking balance direction you stupid hacks.
