Agree with this. Could we see the stats on the Hunter's Machete so we can start getting an idea on the overall strength of some of the junglers? Especially for ones that the base info that you've given us is looking to kill.

I love the new changes.

Some people will complain, just as they did with the jungle changes last year - but over time I think these changes will become popular.

If you truly want to fix this issue, just make the small golems spawn at 1:55 as well. No jungler starts at the small golems, so it wont affect the jungling.

Look, I understand you're randomly changing the meta just to sell more champions by making the old picks useless, but please consider people who have practiced a lot with the champions that were designed for the old jungle. Half of their kit revolves around jungling effectively and you are now taking this away.

They will end up like Karma - numerically good, but with a kit designed for a role that doesn't exist anymore.

This is why im really really... really sad.
I LOVE aoe junglers the most... I was hoping they would be left viable... or not... so i guess... I can't pony stomp

maybe twitch will be viable again? That would make all of this better, and I would be giddy



@Statikk

-How do twitch and Heca fair.
Please do share, If Twitch fairs poorly, do you plan to buff him? I would LOVE jangle twitch to return to viability.

Finally, some possible tweaks to Sejuani.

Have the strengths of the buffs themselves been significantly changed? I mean red and blue. What's happening with them?
