Yes, it should, if he used resonating strike BEFORE they flashed, then it's totally fair. QQ more.

Okay, maybe in that case, but Singed fling is a melee distance spell. It should not happen in these cases OR flash shouldn't go off because he did his move first!!!!!!!!!

Flash would be OP if this didn't happen.

If you think flash is bad for that, try Trist's rocket jump

After I flash through a wall, Singed can grab me and throw me back over the wall from the other side?! Several examples of this...

C'mon now!! Please fix this...
This is a result of a race condition on network communication.

Your client says you got away and sends the message to the server. The other player's client says you didn't get away and sends that message to the server. The server now will try to run both scenarios, which means you flash and get thrown at the same time, resulting in you getting thrown in some cases and missed in others.

You probably don't notice when getting away wins the race condition cause you got away and are not dead with nothing else to think about. :P

Thank you so much for this explanation. However, doesn't this seem unfair to the user of flash to waste his/her spell?

Since Riot said they feel they might need to do something about flash, maybe a .2-.5 sec charge before flashing would be that change (Flash CD could or could not activate if charge is broken)? It would make flash a bit less powerful and could solve this issue...?

And it's not unfair to the user of an long-cd ult to use an ult but happen to lose the race with flash?

Just deal with it for now.

I hate when the already casted abilities doesn't work on flash also (or FoW - **** I hate fog of war)
For example Garen's ult works 1 out 5 times.

Sure it's pretty random now and it's always the most noticable (and annoying) when you are the one who suffers from the spell working or not working. And it feels good from the other side.
