With the new speed changes even level 1 characters can move out of the radius if running away. Skill is now almost useless for kiting even at the start. Unintentional nerf to riven. Either speed up the animation (remove cast time) or increase the radius to compensate. It really screws up her ability to finish people if she can't stop runners.

Uh, considering how everyone started boots before the speed changes anyway, I'm not seeing the validity of your claim.

A much needed "nerf"

The point is that you had to use some resources before to do this (buying the boots). Now everyone can do it for free, severely lowering the effectiveness of the ability.

Resources which everyone got 99.99% of the time from the start of the game regardless. Indeed, the movement speed change means some player will opt to go without starting boots more often, leaving them with 25 less speed than before!

most people that go top take boots/3 anyway
if anything this is a small accidental buff to riven as more people will start without boots now, meaning they have -25 speed and should be easier to catch

man riven owns with the new items, shes in good shape, for the first time in a while, im glad i got that champ skin
