it doesn't make any physical sense for a cougar to pounce in any direction irregardless of the direction nid is facing.

and even now that same cougar can pounce in any direction irregardless,except it's almost always not in your control/want :/
i'd rather it be like tumble aiming wise,limit her pounce aiming so she can't just pounce backwards if you must,but right now,we got a better alternative and isn't using it imo

I made Nidalee's pounce not require a mouse click because I actually wanted all of her cougar forms to not require mouse clicks. I thought that was an interesting way of differentiating her human and cougar gameplay while also lowering the complexity of what is fundamentally one of the most complex kits we have in the game. I also had concerns that if we gave Nidalee a targetable pounce pounce would be really over powered as well.

Umm, unless I misinterpreted the OP's post, he didn't say he wanted it to be involve a mouse click, but that he wants it to be like Vayne's tumble and go where the mouse is facing.

A smart cast on pounce would be great.

i have the utmost respect for you brackhar,you do the best champs and i love them all :3
but really,instead of mouse clicks,if you could at least direct with your mouse the way you want to pounce would be still great imo,limit her pouncing range so she can't just pounce back if it's possible and i think it would be pretty cool and would sort of fix most of the issues pp have with her pounce(at least i hope)

tl:dr = your champions are amazing!,also,make nidalee's pounce targeting work out like vayne's tumble except she can still jump walls and have a limited pouncing range(forward and a bit to the left right maybe)!

...I appreciate the goal behind it, but that just made it so Pounce requires like four mouse clicks as you try to properly align to hit someone, or a group of minions, or a wall, etc. ='(

Yeah, if we did it I'd not want it to have a mouse click and just be smart cast. That being said, I'd still be really worried about being OP. :x
