They tried to pull an Indiana Jones and ended up unleashing a rolling boulder of inquiry.

Neither did I, I haven't played him outside of ARAM much this season becaue I was trying to get gold (yay got it!) again.

I love bouncing into the air to throw a bomb at some of my mines, did they really ninja nerf that??

I think it was indirectly removed when they removed Kha'zix E + W in mid-air. Probably coded around the same way or something. However, Caitlyn can still Q mid-E, and Corki can fire missiles mid-valkyrie.

My theory was something along those lines, or because it essentially takes away the cast time on his abilities.

Can this mechanic make a comeback so I can start having more "death from above" moments?

Corki can cast Missile Barrage when he flies through the air...
Just checked and this still works for me, it's not something we've intentionally tried to remove either.

If you're seeing certain situations where you can't cast mid air (and aren't CC'd by something else at the same time) let us know, will give that a look.
