I know a lot of people who would argue about what you said about the jungle btw

Prioritizing distribution of resources is tough when there is always so much to do in such a missive game,but it's understandable. I like the changes implemented, especially the jungle rework.

but seriously, who's in charge and why isn't it on priority after a year?
Since Evelynn and Twitch are relatively established characters, and Riot hasn't show a very real inclination toward adding more stealth oriented characters (in the last 10 or 15 champion releases the only characters who come to mind are Vayne, and Wukong, and they only do it briefly) a stealth remake was probably inherently a low priority because it doesn't bring in much money. There's a reason why you saw things like the mastery overhaul (which had been on the "to do" list longer than the stealth overhaul) getting done first, and you see a new hero come out every other week.

Sadly, it makes more sense to focus on one or two major projects at a time rather than simply spreading your resources thin and trying to address a little bit of everything at the same time.

Sure - Are there things you would change about the current jungle? There could still be room for tweaks.

Xypherous I forgot to ask, does eve get her stun back in this remake, or some reincarnation of it like the hop/dash. I don't have access to the PTR so I don't really know how any of the proposed kits look, but I'm hoping that I'll be able to play Eve and Twitch again with confidence in the characters and the community.

Biggest gripe people have right now if you guys put Twitch and Eve in this position and now the community that play those two characters have to be ridiculed every time the pick them. Regardless of skill cap.

I believe her stun is still attached to her step ability, yes.

Masteries and the 'to do' list
...Wow. You're right. That was like two and a half years on the 'to do' list.

I understand stealth isn't under your jurisdiction anymore, but speaking about Riot as a whole, this is unfortunately becoming one of your largest embarrassments to those who have been following the remake. (And I really hate saying that, or anything that might discourage you guys from being open about projects you have in progress...) Hopefully the live team reaches a breakthrough on it soon.

Exp gains, I've tried running the jungle with the exp quints/talents combined and I still can't break lvl 3 after doing Blue, wolves and wraiths. Seems to be that the exp gains could be bumped by maybe 5-10% or something.

I just have no idea why I can't break hit lvl 3 with all the exp bonus's after 3 camps. Maybe it's a bug or is that intended?
