I would guess this is part of a larger sweep of toggle abilities.

1. I turn it off when I give Blue to AP carries. I also turn it off when I don't want to aggro tower. CD when I use it on accident.
2. Rarely. Not hard to get used to.

Edit: I also turn it off for faster CD when burned.

Well there you go.

Make it so you get a shorter CD if you end it early.

Full duration spell, full duration CD. Half duration spell, half CD, etc.

I frequently manually turn off DBC, and don't believe only having Q as the only way to turn off DBC is a good idea.

Yes, that's the reason why I don't play Rammus often. The ability to deactivate his W really bugs me because sometimes, I deactivate it off on accident.


Teamfight:

"Oh no! I didn't activate my W"

"Presses W"

"Oh no! I just deactivated it!"

Too many times, usually goes like this

*in middle of team fight, can't see champion*
*presses W*
*looks to W icon being available*
"OMG WTF I ALREADY USED YOU"
*smashs W thousand times*
*realizes the stupidity I just did*

After thinking about it for a bit, I don't see myself as having strong feelings one way or the other. It doesn't bother me as it is now, and I don't foresee it bothering me if it were changed. I think it's sort of a non-issue.

Oh, I didn't know this. That removes most of the incentive to deactivate it.

Personally, I don't think you should remove the ability to turn it off, but I definitely think the icon for his W needs to be much easier to distinguish between active/cooled down. The two icons need to look quite different.

1. ok
2. ok


But really,
1. Yes - I sometimes deactivate it after I finish a jungle camp with it on so that it is off CD slightly sooner for the next camp (but that is pretty minor...)
2. Yes - Sometimes in team fights I just spam all my stuff as quick as possible (E / R / W) and then I can't tell if I actually got my W to activate or not.
