If there were more spells this would be a fun idea, but for now...


Except that it would allow players who are comfortable forsaking flash to force the other team to as well. Or if you have a premade that doesn't like jungling, you can ban smite to force them into a smaller pool of jungle champions.

And it's before champion select, so nobody is forced to play a champion missing a crutch spell (Flash Alistar for example).

People would get smart and ban rally or promote so nothing would actually change just 1 real spell would get banned.

No, if anything there needs to be more Champ bans, the amount of Champs that you can ban is staying static while the number of Champs that exist continue to rise meaning bans become rather irrelevant when you are banning something that has three-four other Champions that can fill the exact same role just as well.

No, removes a much too large a portion of spells and too many champins are highly reliant on certain spells, would just leave you with a ridiculously narrow roster of viable champions.

Except that they can counterpick with Teemo if they really want you blinded (and he's better at it too).
Or they can counterpick any of the other strong melee dps'ers (Yi, Olaf, etc) and your edge will be minimal. Sufficient standard CC shuts Trynd down too.

There are some strong combinations, but this game would still be balanced for most champs if there were no summoner spells.

Also, way more downvotes than people with decent arguments against it.
Evilpigeon, there are NOT that many champions that are highly reliant on certain spells. Out of 65, there are less than 10 that rely on a single summoner spell to play effectively. That is not a "ridiculously narrow roster".
