Is it not possible to force only one application of the DoT per spellcast?

Funnily enough, I figured out a way to do it. It's quite hacky, but it works. It won't be in for 1.72, but if BFT is still problematic then, we'll make it work only on the first DoT application.

Why can't you get some tech people to work on that? Riot DOES want their other maps to work, right? What is the extent of your power?

Should we make a petition? Call our local Congressman?

I honestly think that if you did that change, BFT would be fine for 99% of the population that wants to use it (save maybe Teemo). No messing with damage counts and charge counts and etc.

I think you've said this before, but why can't you do double-tagging? Would it require an entire rework of the system?

You're a superstar.
Don't let anyone tell you different.

In group fights, this might actually be beneficial?

Example.
Current Scenario.
Player gets tagged with 3 second dot. BFT lights up applying 3 second 'burn'. Second second, the burn refreshes, as does the third second. After the Dot ends there are 2 more seconds of BFT burn for a total of 5 Burn and 5 charges.

Next Scenario
Player gets tagged with 3 second dot. BFT lights up applying 3 second Burn. Second second, the burn doesn't refresh, neither does the third. After the Dot Ends there are no more seconds of BFT burn for a total of 3 burn and 3 charges.

If there are aoe type dots, then in a group fight, you might want to be burning down one target, but get 5 charges consumed across 3 targets sucking up 15 charges, leaving you with not enough charges for sustained damage on the target you are trying to kill.
