Riot, seriously. Have you ever wondered why people don't play graves anymore, well its because of this one point.

Compared to other adc's his cooldown on at least 2 of his abilities is ridiculous, I don't mean strangely long, I mean RIDICULOUS. 14 secs and 12 secs cooldown on abilities that really don't have much bearing on anything, really. There are champions like Master YI running about with alpha strike that has a quick cooldown on it which can be GAME CHANGING, and yet you prolong non game changing abilities on an adc. I don't understand it at all.

You need to take a serious look at this and address this as graves is now a dead champion that no-one will ever play outside aram.

Thanks

14 seconds on his quickdraw might sound like a lot until you factor in how his autoattacks decrease it's cooldown by a second each. That means that in practice the cooldown is typically 10 seconds or less which compares quite favourably with other champions dashes.

Graves Q can deal huge amounts of damage if you pull it off correctly, and his quick draw comes with a Attack Speed buff and has reduced CD whenever you auto-attack. His cooldown times are acceptable, especially if you give him something like essence reaver.

why make essence reaver on anything... it has been butchered

for me only the late game buckshot cd and smoke screen seem a bit of but the rest is ok

10+ ADC's and Graves is 32% popularity. Also, the fact you think Smokescreen is a useless ability explains why you ended Bronze IV last season.
