To be frank, Twitch is one of the unbalanced champions of the Teamfight Tactics. Even the person in charge of the “dignity flag” project, Riot Mortdog, must be angry because of Twitch, we can see how powerful this unit is. Just being an Assassin champion, with ranged attacks and skills, and perfect interaction with Infinity Sword is enough to prove that Twitch is too strong a champion that Riot should not create.
Twitch ate too many nerfs when it came back in season 6.5
As a result, ever since gamers discovered the true power of Twitch, this unit has continuously eaten nerfs from damage output to mana cast. And then after a long time of being carefully cared for by Riot, Twitch finally stopped being domineering and returned to the true value of a 1 gold unit. Perhaps if Riot was just a little light-hearted in nerfing Twitch, this unit would still be dominating the meta.
Ever since he was in the form of an Empire general, Talon has been a very powerful unit of the Assassin squad. So this unit was nerfed quite a few times before season 6.5 came out, even after the mid-season update, Talon continued to be taken care of. Specifically, in the last 3-4 versions, Talon has been continuously reduced from skill damage, health, armor / magic resistance. Even the Elegant Clan’s VIP effect on Talon suffered a nerf.
Talon is a champion that gets nerfed constantly but is still extremely strong
Even so, Talon at the moment is still a very strong general in the Assassin squad and can “carry the team” extremely well. If you remember Twitch’s annoyance as a long-armed Assassin champion, Talon can completely recreate this with just owning the Lien Thanh Cannon. Combined with good resistant generals (Leona) and able to break the enemy team well (Blitzcrank, Syndra), Talon is always created the best conditions to deal maximum damage.
To talk about the strength of Irelia, we can simply understand that before season 6.5, Idol teams need to play around 5 gold champions to be able to “carry the team”. However, with the appearance of Irelia, just standing in the Idol box with 3 generals, this piece can “do it all”. Obviously, the fact that a 4-gold champion has the same power as an expensive 5-gold unit is too absurd, so Irelia has been constantly eating nerfs since returning.
When it was first released, Irelia of season 6.5 was also considered as strong as a 5-money champion
Specifically, when she first came back, Irelia’s base AD was 90 at 1-star level, but now it’s only 70. After that, an index such as basic attack speed, skill damage to skill energy was also nerfed in the past versions. As a result, from the position of a super mainstay, Irelia only has a relatively stable strength with a 4-gold champion and is no longer as dominant as before.
