And none of these will make progress till after Season 3 changes go out./
Any date on Season 3 changes? Getting really antsy here bro.

No, zero CS is even bigger than this effort from a risk/dificulty standpoint. Supports will still play zero CS (unless you guys find strats that feed supports!)

We are adding a lot of support-oriented items with this in mind, though, and alternate ways to get gold (cool new mastery for supports inc...). I actually don't mind zero CS - I mind that support don't get gold that they can use to buy cool items. That is what we'll fix here.

Zero CS is needed to keep support viable (it's actually always been the optimal way to play, players just didn't have that down pre S2), but they get to do a lot of other interesting things in lane like harass, peel or set up kills. Making the lane fight for CS is inferior to that.

Some, probably. I agree here, though we'll likely keep Aura items for a similar reason - they at least feel god on support and tanks, especially if you don't like actives.

We want it to - we're doing some summoner spell changes for S3 as well.

Is there any plans to change the jungle? I have some data showing gold and exp income based on how hard the camps to fight and how long it takes, and I believe that if camps took a little longer to respawn (20-30 seconds) and gold, damage, and minion health were adjusted accordingly to keep it similar counter-jungling would be more powerful. (Longer spawn times = longer to wait if you leave 1 minion).

Also if the camps were doing a little more damage it would make the jungle a little less "safe" so we could see more S1 Lee Sin or Shako style jungling where they just farm the other jungler. Any thoughts?

Will you address some of the older champions who have fallen out of favor due to movement creep? Will you bring them up to par? Thank you in advance

Well, price/skin distribution is unrelated, so sure! We do have some champs that are long-overdue skins, but some of them need art overhauls with them (ie Soraka, who will get a new skin when we go make it better!)

Price-wise, our Director of eCommerce has been on here talking more about that - outside my expertise.

Synergy mastery!?! Morello please, I'd be so excited if that's what you're referring to. MY LEONA CAN FINALLY BE AN ACTUAL TANK!

Yes, we agree wholeheartedly with this problem. Jungle changes will happen.
