You could always play twisted treeline and basically ignore all the patch changes because riot has forgotten about that map

oh good, weaker minions. And now those potions won't deny me my first kill. Although jungle kinda scares me now.

Not Yay for no Katarina or Mundo reworks!

This preview reminds me of when they nerfed wards.

So now, jungle minions spawn more often, which creates less incentive to protect your jungle since a respawned golem/lizard will come much faster.

If a jungler comes out to a lane with a red buff, then it's the laners' faults for not warding their river.

Also, ganking someone in the jungle is much less risky because the jungling champ is less likely to be at low health.

Also, since it's easier to jungle, there'll end up being more ganks from the jungle into a lane because junglers won't need to heal up as much before an attempt.

If minion damage is lowered, then that again rewards people who play stupidly and try to kill a champion in the early game phase with a bunch of minions around.

Why give Sivir more range, then give her passive so she benefits from closing with her opponent? She's not like Vayne who at least has a stealth escape and a stun/pin. Also, Sivir is supposed to be a newbie friendly champ and it seems like the passive will just make her most squishy as new players overcommit.

Nerfing health potions removes early game item choices and encourages people to either return to base or hang back from the minion wave to heal.

Also, why the heck do you do all these changes after Season 2 starts instead of during the offseason? I also didn't see any of these changes in the beta.. actually the only thing I've seen in the limited beta is the spectator mode, so why even have a beta?

Jungle changes look horrid. Lane changes look horrid too. Just all aggression and less skill. Lame.
