You can;t really complain about the ping reality of online games. It;s not a problem they can fix without breaking the game in other regards. Something that happens one out of maybe 1000 tries is not game breaking or complaint worthy.

As signed, I once grabbed a RAGING-tryn trying to spin away through dragon area.

He was sooo pissed.

Well then, you have basically no idea at all how networking works.

what would be fair is if they took the broken summoner skill that is flash out or rework it.

I see why this happens, but can the server(game) detect when this happens and give the ability (off cooldown) to the person who lost the race in obvious instances? There have been times where I would rocket jump as trist and while mid air, singed would toss me back as if i was where I started from but now I have no rocket jump. Losing flash would be more annoying due to its much longer cooldown. Be hard to detect such ones like dodging/not dodging skill shots, galio ult with somebody right on the line, etc but the single target ones like blitz grab/singe toss/etc should be able to undo the spell/ability usage to make up for losing the race because of ping.

I like that half the people in this thread are acting like they don't use flash "cause it's a get out of fail free card". I'm willing to bet if you don't use it, because you have a moral objection to it you die a lot in this game.

Lets not act like flash is some big monster lurking in the forest ready to eat your children please.

You probably don't notice when getting away wins the race condition cause you got away and are not dead with nothing else to think about. :P
k... so fix it?

After I flash through a wall, Singed can grab me and throw me back over the wall from the other side?! Several examples of this...

You know what? Your lying to us. Singed can't throw people through walls, therefore, what you have said is a LIE!
