So can we go back to hyper-aggressive season 1 style play? Regi king mid again?

More seriously, will we be able to jungle corki/ezrael like s1 again.

So no more leashing, AoE wont be as effective, camps are going to get stronger, and you want to have more champs to jungle
Seems Legit

Jax is actually one of the champions I feel has possibly become overpowered with the changes.

He has strong clearing speeds (Counter Strike for AoE and Empower and his passive for single target) and decent resilience (Counter Strike dodging) in the jungle. His ganks are scary because of Leap + Counter Strike stun. He also scales monstrously with the increased gold for later game.

We're monitoring him very closely.

Will Twitch and Evelynn become more viable here?
