They already answered your question about 10 times. They said they liked having 2v1 lanes for quick pushes, however it was imbalanced because it completely invalidated a huge percentage of champions that were only strong in laning phase.

The idea was they would make it a little harder to do so it wasn't 100% required that every game people do that exact strategy. But make it as a possible option.

tldr; they want to open up some counterplay. In SCII not everyone uses the exact same opening strategy 100% of the time.

Well, yeah, it would put more focus on up front bursts and withholding attacks, but base crit damage could take a reduction, and it works in favor of AD casters who don't have a worthwhile AA modifier to capitolize on.

For AD mages, melee who have to wait around for an opportunity to engage, Assassins, and harassers, it means more expected damage and an AA modifier which can be build for their behavior, for Carries it means seperating a modifier which multiplies against attack speed and gaining a set amount of crits over time based on how much crit gen they invest in.

I detailed a lot of features with it in the thread I mentioned, but I don't see how unexpected burst primarily working only for sustained attackers is better than planned burst with a measured limit, there would be more up front burst and likely less sustained application assumably?, right?
That would just mean that facechecking a bush would hurt even more and sustained fights would feel worse. I don't think that's the polarity we need to fix those issues. T_T

Will Kassadin's daughter ever be reintroduced to the league?
Will there be any romance between Zyra x Maokai x Fiddlesticks?

Why can't you shift click to queue up movement orders?

My one shot at getting Morgan Freeman into this game.. and I blew it.

This must be the alternate ending to 8 Mile.

Do you happen to know what's going on with heimer? There was a lot of talk and work being done and then nothing.

Any info or if you could just have someone post about it to give us an update would be great.

Do you thinking Morrelonomicon is a little too powerful for how cheap it is? It also builds from a gp10.

Its amazing, I love it.. but perhaps a little too amazing.

Something Ive always been curious about. How do you guys (rioters in general) view the forums? Do you actively use it too look at balance issues or is it just a loud backseat driver? Something in-between maybe?

I cant imagine you take everything on here seriously or else everyone would be nerfed into the ground.
Anyway gooodnight peeps im out
