I'm not sure if this has been said already, but one problem with Bloodseeker's Rupture ability is...

As a new player, when you see yourself bursting in blood, and you see a melee dpser running at you... the first reaction would be to RUN! However thats counter-productive since if you run you take massive damage, and bloodseeker runs faster at you.

Poor new players... = (


How is this a problem? It's kind of the purpose...it's like someone else pointed out, this is the same as seeing Tryn and attempting to run away only to realize you just screwed yourself because now he can slow you.

I think flash serves to negate some of the anti-fun factor from stuns and exhausts really.

Isn't flash an example of when anti-fun exceeds fun?

If I flash away, it's cool but I knew I had flash up my sleeve that whole time. However, my enemy that was trying to kill me is really pissed and ends up using expletives under his breath (and some unintended alliteration).


I got you covered, bro.

Does wanting to kill a player, and setting up a nice gank.. only to have that player constantly flash/ ghost away fit in one of these categories?
Yes, which is why we are likely going to nerf these soon.


EDIT:NVM, Zileas ninja'd me.

If i remember correctly how the game mechanic worked Rupture dealt damage based on distance traveled, and there was a cap so that people wont get insta killed when Tp-ing. But it should deal damage or at least some damage. Might be wrong though


Yea you're wrong

How was it then exactly. I know it dealt damage based on distance traveled no matter the means but maybe TP scrolls made you immune to the damage?

I personally see no problem with flash other than negating projectiles, that's kind of unfair.

It also strikes me as odd that Ezreal and Kassadin's flashes don't do that

Either way, I'm sure you guys will come up with a way to keep it useful and entertaining.
