Would be nice to get an answer from a red about this certain patch note and Maokai's behavior, cause this nerf was supposed to lower his strength, especially when tower diving (tower swapping from Mao to another target).

Note the use of after here: it looks like there was a bug where after TA resolved Maokai was not correctly becoming a tree again, and they fixed that behavior. Since launch Maokai's TA has been able to dodge spells if correctly timed.

Casting means normally the animation time not the actual spell overall (Cho casts his Q and it has a delay then - red circle is shown)
And a bug fix is normally stated like that:
"bugfix:" or "fixed ...".

  • Fixed a bug causing clone names to not be visibile.
  • Fixed a bug that would cause issues with commanding your champion upon attempting to reconnect.
There was a bug like this, but that bug happened way before that patch and also happened to Lee Sin (Q) and other skills, not only Maokai.

the wording also says "become" while in the bug he "stayed" untargetable.
And Riot is normally really careful with such wordings.
