As a Shaco player, this is very bitter sweet. Does this mean you can split up camps to more than one target?

Good luck getting your teammates helping you below 1.5k elo...

Actually this will probably BUFF Fizz's jungle. His passive becomes more useful with a tougher jungle and having %hp damage makes him more effective against the high hp camps. The emphasis away from AoE clearers will also make his own clear time better in comparison to other junglers than it is now.

Will there be any additional balance adjustments to champions like Sejuani, Nautilus, and Hecarim who have very dangerous early clears in the live "fast" jungle? From the sound of the new jungle, without any adjustments, it's going to be incredibly painful for the first clear and essentially suicide the second the enemy wants to begin counterjungling.

with leashing gone, and increase damage from monsters....this brings back bad memories of life and death battles against the blue buff

Time to go back to the old sustain junglers
