You guys gotta stop nerfing ignite and flash. That's a bad move

In order to catch someone you need at least one more gap closer than they have escapes (or an equal number if you catch them out of position). The balance of this is drastically thrown off because of flash's long cooldown. Not everyone has flash up or down at the same time. A difference in gap closers/escapes on the assassin/bruiser and the AD carry means the life or death of the AD carry and likely the entire teamfight.

As someone who plays a lot of assassins (and melee characters in general) the fact that anyone can instantly move 400 distance in any direction at any time is very annoying.

It's a shame because 2x bruiser bot is my absolute favorite lane to play, but I hardly ever get to do it because I cannot always play with my friends, and it's "not allowed' in solo queue or even normals.

So many players that I encounter seem to think that ADC absolutely need the protection of a 0-CS support to farm effectively, despite that Cait/Corki/Ezreal/Graves/Tristana/MF, etc. are all very strong solo laners. So many players think that all bruisers need the farm of a solo lane to be effective, despite that Alistar/Blitz/Leona/Jarvan/Maokai, etc. are all effective as junglers or 0-CS where they would have low farm anyway.

It also would be really cool if more AP champions could be more competitive in the jungle - particularly Fiddlesticks and Heimerdinger. I know that Fiddlesticks, Diana, and Elise are viable junglers, but they are still rarely great picks for the jungle.

Unless ignite and flash receive cooldowns like 5 minutes I don't think it changes, a lot.

Did you guys thought about "teamwide" summoner spells pool? Like there only can be 2 this same summoners spells per team. (The biggest problem would be ofc. solo queue and "Ignite + Flash or feed", but for 3v3 5v5 premade teams it could be interesting concepts).

Early details are a problem because we're changing things daily - all that does if you say something is happening, then change it is make people mad.
Anyone else thinking of that episode of The Office (US) where Charles Miner wants Jim to give a rundown and he has no idea what that means?

i'm scared for the jungle changes i hope they still keep it recognizable flash and ignite needed the nerf it was basically you always used those spells no others can't wait to see the new items but again i'm afraid they remove my favorite items i just don't know what to think so far fingers crossed for the patch
