This seems like one of the first companies that really listens and even plays games so that they know what they're talking about when explaining and going over things. Great job riot, definitely an interesting patch that'll change things up a bit, which is always nice

EDIT: One of the first free to play game companies**

So if AD carry builds need attack range for importance like he just said in the spotlight, one can assume your increasing AD twisted fates range?

Exactly, and they still did nothing about the fact that she's squishy as balls. Regardless of spell shield.

Hmm... Safer jungle and more buffs, eh?

Vampiric Scepter Jungle-Invading Nocturne, anyone? You already emerge with near-full health with 21/9/0 mastery.

The minion nerf definitely will promote more aggressive play but the health pot nerf will promote more passive play IMO

No, it won't, ****wad. I guarantee people will still try to farm and get flashed/ nuked/ ignited and killed, this is just a change to make SURE people can't spam pots and be good at full health all the time. This will, in turn, create more deaths in lane, since your skills are actually doing damage that's not being healed up right away. Even if you backdown from the lane you are still losing gonna be punished either in xp or gold, or both. "Backing down" doesn't nullify the good this change will do and how it will separate the good from the bad.

I will say however, the champs that have cd skills and easy heals are going to be more prominent picks now. They were already bad but this change might hurt gameplay even more and I can see poking tactics annoyingly increasing.

Also, I thought jungle was fine. You really don't need to make it easy. Way to asskiss noobies.
