    Silences

    Silences are cancer and need toned down.

    Yes? No? Maybe so?

    Instead of preventing use of abilities, you just "Shush" the player whenever they use one.
    Preferred Gods:
    Aphrodite, Awilix, BAEllona, Da Ji, Discordia, Fenrir, Janus, Jing Bae, Nike, Nox, Skadi, Sol and The Morrigan.

    We need more kawaii skins!

    I feel Silences are relatively in a healthy spot. It sucks to be in one but other than the area on Nox's bubble which is an unfortunate necessity to land her combo reasonably, they're not as opressive as say slows or anything that stops you from fleeing completely.

    Ares supported Trojans. Ares has a ton of kids

    They completely prevent a player from using any abilities for the duration of the silence. If that's not the definition of oppressive then idk what is. It completely shuts down ANY character hit by one.

    yeah but you can still beads it, magi's cloak will shut it off, and there's always ults that are cc immune.

    Beads is on a 140s cooldown at least. Some silences are back within 10s. And in teamfights there's often little indication that you're even silenced with so much else going on.

    You're missing my point entirely. Other forms of CC are more effective against some characters than others. Silences counter literally EVERY god in the game in EVERY situation, and there is little to nothing you or your team can do about it. This wasn't as much of a problem when they were rarer, but they're so prevalent now they're just making every other game just unfun to play.
