This is why I love this game! it challenges me instead of giving me everything on my hand like other games have turned into. Instead of updating to make things easier and more toddler like, they make it more difficult in some ways but still great!

I am concerned about 2 issues.
Current meta is dominated by junglers who are: 1) tanky, 2) initiators, 3) have aoe... mundo, shyvana, amumu, maokai...

As I first figured it these changes would mark their (rightfull) fall from utter domination... but when I read your replies about questions about viability of those champions you usually replay with `xxx still has one of fastest clears etc`

>>>Is this jungle making a level playing field for all types of junglers or will it just lessen the edge the aoe tanky initiators have, while still letting them dominate competitive play?



>>>My second question is about assasins... Since early ganks are now going to be something that only a few champions can pull off, notably you mention shaco... (who I very much like) will that make them op in some sense and what are the ideas you have for tweaking assasin junglers in general?

Hey Statikk, how well does Skarner compete in the new S3 jungle? Seeing as he was recently hit by a (somewhat painful) nerf to his shield cooldown... and he has no form of sustain apart from leveling his fracture (E) early, which most currently agree is a fairly underwhelming ability for its effect, cooldown, and mana costs.

Please tell me that jungle Tryndamere will still be viable after all these changes. He gets too easily harrassed at top to farm properly, so jungling is pretty much the only alternative. Will jungle Tryndamere still work?
