Since the beginning of Twisted Treeline players have been begging for a unique to map item shop and possible overall rules changes (like less effective Armor/MR) so that it could be a balanced and playable map. Now Crystal Scar has been announced and has the same high action, small skirmishes, shorter game time features that made TT interesting.

Does the release of CS mean that TT is never going to receive the attention to make it a interesting and balanced map that is competitively playable with most champions? Or now that CS is released is the map team going to be able to transfer some of those features (like the unique item shop) to TT and work on redesigning portions so that extreme stalemates don't occur at the Nexus and champions without wallcrossing abilities are more viable?

Edit: Reposted in more appropriate forum.

Items in Crystal Scar will be balanced around early game mobility power.

Transport CS items into TT and get rid of the problematic tank and madred's items from TT.

Balance, perhaps?

Supporting Dominion is not incompatible with improving the play balance on Twisted Treeline, though you'd have to ask Morello as to when the Live team is going to tackle that.

There was a red post earlier that said some of the item changes of Dominion will be applied to TT. I believe that it was Morello, but not sure.

TT was abandoned a very long time ago.

I play TT to lane with some trational junglers like Udyr. I really dont like the responsibility of jungling on 5v5.

I will always like 3's but will prob never look back once this comes out.

Yeah, he said yesterday that the altered item shop inventory and general balance changes to the map would eventually carry over to Twisted Treeline as well.

Hopefully they can get the map balanced to the point where there's an incentive to play with a team comp of something other than three tanky mens led by Mundo.

As I said, removing the tanky mens items from the map should help it a lot (and it's what I originally suggested while TT was in beta).
