They gave him a better early game. Significantly better. They nerfed his late game where he never dies and does tons of damage, while having a really strong initiation.

This what happens when they nerf problem champions before they actually become a problem.

The cooldown increase in his "w" early on is unecessary, "w" is a skill which full potential is only unleashed from mid to late(when teamfights starts to happen more often). "E" already has a extremely high cooldown, they should leave it as it is.

Looking at the changes, this is a straight-up nerf. He'll clear a little faster in the early game, but the Q buff is balanced out by the W nerfs (CDR and damage). He'll be a few seconds faster, but his sustain will still be **** (10% -> 20% means literally nothing when it's still capped vs creeps) and his dueling will still be just god awful.

In exchange for that? His sustain in teamfights just took a straight-up 33% nerf.

Yeah, **** these changes.
Sums it up perfectly. They didnt buff anything because the W nerf will dirctly negate anything he will get from this Q "buff". And if you take into consideration that Elder Lizard got nerfed aswell he will only be slower and weaker if these changes go through.

Hecarim was a unique champion because he actually had different power curve than many other junglers, weak early game, ok.ish mid game and beast lategame - by flattening out his powerlevel they will just make him another jarvan, vi or xin but without being scary at early stages...

The W CD nerfs might be too harsh if the goal was to improve his early game jungling. If they increased the healing cap it would really help his jungling.
