Why would you ever risk harassing or going for a kill on your lane opponent if you know their jungler is just going to pop out and take you down?

this all sounds like very bad news for sejauni. who is already a very difficult jungle who has no lane potential. If you take away her jungle efficiency, she has nothing left. sigh. Sej never gets any riot love.

"So what you're saying is that junglers will now be able to farm up instead of always having to gank to become more effective in the game. Would it be fair to say that junglers will be better off controling the jungle instead of always making a presence in lanes?"

I'm just gonna go and ask the same thing we've all been wondering: Jungle Annie, troll or viable?

Have you discovered any "surprise" junglers in your internal testing? Champions that work well in the new jungle but would be horrible for live?

Unlike other champions where I feel there are small tweaks we can make to ensure they are viable in the new jungle, Volibear feels fairly off and would need some significant changes (both buffs and nerfs) to switch him more into a jungle role.
Volibear in general seems kinda weak right now...he can counter some people but outside of that, he has such pathetic base stats and relies on sticking to a target to do anything. He also has way too many counters to his entire kit at the moment.

I hope this will make junglers stop camping top lane, for real.

Cant play aggressively for the first 5 minutes or you die.
