Doesn't this make the game a lot more passive and slow?

Except the movement was just taken from boots and added to everychampion's base speed

It makes boots less needed at first level. Before, if you and your opponent both took the same champion, and one of you had boots while the other didn't, there was a speed difference of 50. Now there would only be a speed difference of 25. This is to entice people to have more of a varied starting build, without taking away the advantage of being faster than somebody who didn't take boots.

It wasn't a "nerf" they rearranged the movespeed so boots first wasn't what EVERYONE went because they closed the disparity between boots and non boots users. If you didn't go boots first as a non-support you were basically shafted to play passive the entire early lane phase because you were likely to die in a gank without even crossing the river and you couldn't chase/run from your lane opponent at all.

It feels like I'm stuck in a Youtube vortex. I'm going to complaining thread to another complaining thread laughing my ass off instead of playing the game lol.
