We aren't playing the same game for sure,

Sejuani has the most horrible scaling on her abilities

Just max Q over W now and I think Mundo will do more than fine.

So leashing is back to being not a thing? Hm.

We're monitoring him very closely.
You mean he wasn't OP already?

Most internal game end results have shown that strong farm junglers (especially when factoring in successful ganks and lane sharing/covering) can keep up in gold with the lanes and often end up with experience levels slightly between the solo lanes and the duo lane.
I thought the jungle was intentionally nerfed during Season two to prevent the jungler from keeping up with lanes, because champs like Rammus or Udyr would end up out-leveling the solo lanes because of their fast clear times. Do you think this is going to be a problem again or will the increase in damage from jungle creeps prevent that from happening?

Statikk, I'm more concerned about counter jungling situations. Is it worth stealing small camps at the early stages. Does the experience gain/gold gain from stealing worthwhile to get slightly beat up in the jungle?

Do you guys have any plans to buff/remake baron with something more challenging, exciting as you did with tt.

Is anything happening with Baron or is he staying the same? Also, are Blue Buff/Red Buff having any changes in terms of how much of a buff they give, or what they give?

So basically leashes won't exist anymore?
People need to stop asking this question and read a few pages damn.
