It sounds like the stealth/invisibility rework is going under great changes. Good job & work! I'm sure there's still plenty of work to do, but it seems like it'll be a great implementation.

Xypherous,

If I were a woman, I would have your babies. Thanks for keeping us up to date. It helps show us that the issue is still being looked into. I think this is something that Eve/Twitch/Shaco players, as well as those who hate them, can all appreciate, and could add an interesting slant to the meta.

This sounds AWESOME, can't WAIT to try this out. Riot definitely put the right man on the job for this stealth rework.

So we really shouldn't hold our breath for anything new to due with stealth? Meaning another year will go by before we see anything to do with Twitch or Eve?
ETAs are shaky, unfortunately. I can't give you a good estimate because of the platform instability going on. Sorry. :<

..I thought the unlimited scouting was an issue...this does not address that at all...
We diminished the power of unlimited scouting in several ways:

1. You can't sneak up to scout someone in the brush, because they will see you before you can enter the brush.

2. Your scout is diminished because you are doing it from farther away.

Won't Evelynn's abilities to initiate (since she has to get into melee range) be completely gimped by giving the enemy completely sight of her if she is within range? Have you tested just having a warning indicator for players that warn them when a stealth champ is in X range but doesn't reveal the character model of the stealthed champ to the player?
Yes, this was paranoia. It was still generally unsatisfying to play against.

We will also fix this with slight tweaks to her kit. (For example, giving Evelynn a short-hop type ability, giving her a medium range harass ability, etc.)

I'm REALLY hoping some buffs will come through somehow, be it mechanics or numbers. While the update is cool, it will utterly destroy Eve's initiation. Stealth becomes useless when it come to terms of champs.

And will this gem system also work with hidden champs?

I know I'm the vast minority here, but colored sight gems as a color blind person will suck.
