What's being done to Revive if anything? Are you guys happy with it being pretty much a Dominion only Summoner Spell?

Hey FeralPony and Roku!

Are the new masteries keeping the same format as they do now? I mean, is it still optimal to put 21 points in Offense - for example - and 9 into Defense? Or is it ok now to put 30 points into one tree?

Also, a while a go I read a thread that talked about how cool it would be to put several "21 points Masteries" in one three and allow summoners to pick 1 of them depending on their champion and/or playstyle. What is your opinion on this?

If you do terrible with an unusual build, then of course people are going to get mad at you. I mean a build like a build that is unusual like AP Talon, should be tested a lot before you use it to make sure it actually works. (Note: Do not actually ever try AP Talon as that is a terrible idea since non of his moves scale with AP, it was just an example)
Taric has no AD ratios, but does that not make him resourceful?

200 shatters, 400 ult, 200 stun and heal CD procs while your whomping 600 crits on enemies with your 395-420 movement speed.

people need to stop playing the way people want them to, and play the way they want.

This also comes into question...
Revive is about as under-used as Surge is, so why does Surge have to be the one to go?

Hoping new masteries don't make you waste points on Summoner Spell buffs. Really annoying.

You should just play how you want to. If the build you are using is actually good, and helps you win, then no one will get mad at you, and you can be AD Taric all you want. That's what i was trying to say.

i know its set already but is their any chance of getting banner back? or maybe a offensive based utility summoner spell? exhaust seems to run mostly defensive use and since banner is no more supports arnt really left with any beificail offensive options.

edit also any chance u can talk about jungle changes adding more gold to its postion and suports getting something viable to increase thier incoming gold overall. not so much like GP tens lasting into builds and buying less consumables but them actually gaining more gold?

Has summoner Flash ever been considered for removal?

I feel like I am constantly forced into taking it because 4/5 of the other team will usually have it and I need it to get away from their flash/chase after them. It also takes away somthing special from champions who should have a natural advantage like Ez and Ahri for going over terrain. Not to mention Jarvan IV would love his ult again

Maybe making it an (expensive) item could give people an option to still use it while providing a reasonable trade-off

Indeed!
What about uncool new masteries? How many of those should we expect?

and is Rohan you son and/or grandpa?
Roku is japanese for 6, Rohan is from LOTR, and Ploki is now synonymous with stupid fanboy.

Surge really wasn't that great. For it to truly outshine ignite/exhaust as an offensive choice the champ you were playing had to benefit from both the AP and the ASPD, which basically kept the list of champions it was useful for limited to Teemo and Teemo.
