If you go for a gank and you forget to encounter that they have flash, then thats your fail

1) Make flash not usable in combat (and maybe, for 2-3 seconds after combat), increase its range(and/or decrease cooldown) to make a better INITIATION tool, not free escape tool.
2) Nerf/rework gamebreaking AOE CC ults (Amumu, Galio), and never introduce such skills on new champions.

Also, while on topic, remove blind component from exhaust, replace with % attack speed debuff.

They can't flash twice in a row now can they? While this isn't always guarenteed, it works most of the time. Flash isnt hard to counter if you have stuns or silences. You can't cast it upon recieving either of the two. And there are a lot of stuns and silences in this game.
THANK YOU. You sir are a smart player. Glad there's people around who are actually SMART enough to play against someone with flash.

By the way, last game I played, the whole enemy team had Flash (or at least 4 of 5) I EASILY saw from 7 to 10 FAILED escaped Flashes during confrontations. You just need to be a better player when you fight someone with Flash.

I don't use it, don't care if everyone I fight for the rest of my LoL career has it.

It's not like you can do it every 10 seconds or anything. I really don't see how it's stronger than Ghost (which I basically ALWAYS take). Honestly I think Ghost has far more utility overall.

flashers gonna flash. . .

I'm confused, few weeks ago i asked about that flash remove from march and what happened about that. Then i got the answer that flash wont get removed, so I thought: ok so when its not going to get removed i start using it again.
Now it's gonna get removed? Stop changing your minds all the time Riot.

Make flash require that you are not in combat for 5s.

It means that you can use if for the following:
-dodge ults (pantheon, ashe arrow etc)
-get away from ganks BEFORE they happen (you see them coming)
-initiate
-escape if you have been untouched for 5s.

Not a get out of fail free card anymore.

i think you donīt get rid ot the frustrating aspect when someone flashes out of a 5-man-gank, when he can megaheal+cleanse away instead

Make it uncastable for a certain time after you've been hit (by a champion or tower, **** minions)

I agree with this guy on both points, in particular on changing Amumu, and Galio. Flash shouldn't be a get out of jail card, and it shouldn't be an omgbbq initiation spell which with Amumu and Galio is exactly what it does. This can be seen in particular on a team with both Amumu, and Galio as it allows for an almost automatic win in initiated teamfights with Amumu opening with his ult, and Galio following in with flash, and ult.

There is nothing wrong with flash, don't remove it. I love using flash offensively, it rarely can be used defense due to all roots and silences. If people are escaping that often from you with flash, it is your fault not the games.
