Dunk Master Yi was finally nerfed via changing the math on Highlanders attack speed bonus finally stopping him from single handedly winning games post lvl 6. If i remember correctly it was changed from Additive (Basicaly always gave him 2.5 AS) to multiplicitive.
Also Kassadins ManaBurn on his W was terribly fun early game. Oh and release poppy's plethora of bugs, mostly focused around her charge knocking people up of the screen for anywhere from 3-8 seconds when charging a moving target or instakilling herself. Fun Times

Oh almost forgot. Eve was considered worthless tier and people on your team would RQ for you playing her (Then she got an incredibly small buff and FOTM kicked in.)
Veigars ult used to scale off of total mana pool for bonus damage. Veigar v Veigar games turned into who could build the most AP without stacking mana and getting oneshot by the other.
Ez used to be primarily built ap on release and his E healed.
A full team of stacked sunfire capes would out DPS most teamcomps. (40 dps x 5slotsx 5players = 1000 dps per second in AOE plus a ton of armor and health from the items.)

League patch days were Wednesday but down times lasted until late evening (I'm talking like 6PM-8PM) on thursdays. Really bad patch days were until Fridays. And that doesn't even count how log you had to wait to log in because of server overloads. Then they began patching Thursdays and downtimes lasted until late afternoon or early evening Fridays.

Old game ending layout.

Tryndamere just about every game, even when lvl30.

Dunno if this has been said yet but

Baron and Dragon used to have bushes covering the entrance to their caves. Originally, the winter map removed the bushes and the community mostly agreed that the winter map was better, so Riot changed the regular summoner's rift to match.

Sivir's ricochet, when it was still a toggle, used to proc lifesteal on every bounce. She was practically unkillable with a couple of blood thirsters if there were enemy creeps around.

The old summoner profile showed wins and losses as well as your top played champions (for normals): http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w208/Yatta7/LoL/Sivir.jpg (http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/redirect.php?do=verify&redirect_url=http%3A%2F%2Fi177.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fw208%2FYatta7%2FLoL%2FSivir.jpg)

THERE USED TO BE A LOGOUT BUTTON!!!!!!
