Will we be getting achievements in Season 3? They've been there since I can remember (I think pre-season 1).

In the preseason we want summoner spells to be another way to customize your champion to suit your playstyle instead of being dominated by a few, extremely strong choices. Were confident that these modifications will free you up to experiment with different combinations and tailored to your favorite champions.
I REFUSE to use ignite and always picked surge instead... if the real issue was not knowing who it was using it ... besides the fact they grew when in use ... give them a icon of the eye above em ... make em flash or glow with a aura ...there are lots of ways you could have changed it to make it more eye catching ...end of 1st season you took away my flag end of 2nd ya taking my surge -.- ya might as well give me 2 teleports at this point..
which champions to use it ... AP and Atkspd .... umm who uses that uses surge -.- powerful to boost your AP and atkspd for that crush moment ether at 1st blood, killing towers with a bit more speed... better then igniting and running away getting a kill (granted barrier had better counter ignite -.- as no i got currently no 2nd summoner skill)

This seems to be the place to ask this, since the thread discusses masteries and summoner spells. What is the status of the summoner spell specialization masteries?

I feel that these specialization masteries only really serve to create feel bad play if you are running the spell and not the mastery, combined with the fact that the effect varies from spell to spell, from near negligible (ignite) to almost more powerful than the spell was to begin with (revive). Are these being included in the S3 mastery trees or are they being removed? If they are being kept, are the rewards per spell being flattened?
