Zhonya's Ring
Eve could stun
At max rank, Eve and Twitch's stealth lasted for 1 min.
Gunblade (not the active, but every other stat) stacked.
GP10 items of the same name stacked together (multiple Philo, etc)
Innervating Locket
Sona's passive was only bonus damage (comparable to the Q passive now), no additional effect
Taric lost the aura from Shatter when he used the active
Numbers of leaves used to be displayed when you hovered the mouse over the summoner's name in post-game chat and in your friend list.
Monsoon slowed enemies who re-entered the storm.
TF and Pantheon had global ults.
Revive + Smite jungle Evelynn. *****es.
TF and Janna's passives worked even after they were dead.
Shields lasted at least 10 secs.
Shields didn't display on the HP bar.
Katarina was built either AD (stacking BTs) or AP depending on whether you wanted to rip faces with Bouncing Blades or Shunpo.
RoA didn't keep the Catalyst passive.
WIt's Ends burned mana instead of giving MR on hit.
Veigar's ult did dmg based off his mana and his target's mana.
Akali's AP passive proc'd on turrets, making her a pretty good pusher.
"Can X champion jungle" actually meant "Can X champion survive a jungler clear, or am I going to get executed?" because the jungle was actually hard.
2 bans per team in draft.
No normal draft.
Boots of Swiftness + 5 Sunfire capes Garen
Dodge existing.
Ezreal's W: healed, buffed AS, debuffed AS, and did damage.

Tristana had the first "dual spell" where her explosive shot would deactivate the passive effect when it was on cooldown. It no longer does this because so many new champions would have gotten both effects, so Tristy got a minor update awhile ago to make her catch up a tiny bit.

Also, APC's used to have severe mana issues, and generally your best choice for runes was mp/5, which were far stronger before while the base mana regen on champions was smaller and mana costs were higher =P

Ahh... the jokes we made back then...


Now excuse me while I weep over the fact that lore is dead and we will never see another showmatch *sniff*

Beta Jax got 25% more AD for buying AD items (his passive). Dodge on his E stun, which would proc the stun and u'd stun someone and it could proc again soon after. Creeps were your friend in the lane for this.

Also tryndamere, got crit %, crit dmg, atk speed, AD steriods, 7sec immunity ult (which could be silenced, stunned, etc before use).
