Flash sucks, animation features in html 5.0 will make your internet browsing experience much more stable.

You know that when Adobe purchased Macromedia they basically dropped all support for Shockwave and abandoned it as a dead codec.

Kind of like how they told Freehand to call a cab, and kicked it out of the bedroom.

Poor Freehand. ;~;

At first I was looking forward to seeing flash as one of my summoner spells, but when I finally got to level 12 and tested it out in a practice game it sucked.

It doesn't take me to where my cursor is, even when I'm clicking on a clear area with no fog. Then I tried in my characters immediate area and clear space, it only took me like halfway to where my cursor was, not even.

It is terrible, teleport is so much better.

Or I am doing something wrong..?


I avoid around 5-6 ganks a game using this spell. It's perfect for getting away.

I also always get a couple flash use X spell kills. People don't expect u to be that close all of a sudden.

I never play without it.

Initial read tof the skill is so much like Teleport I thought it was a minionless teleport when I first got to 12, its not, its that little hop you see champions do from time to time and is good for what is mentioned around here... I just consider having to use this skill as a failing to play the game right and would much rather take something else..

Instant Twitch!: Just add Minion Target!

I've totally had that happen to me! I was like "Holy **** lay off the Insanity Potion!"

I find it mostly useful for:

1. Crossing impassable terrain (trees, cliffs, walls, etc.). Extremely helpful in Twisted Treeline
2. Escaping ganks
3. Chasing

It's not for general movement since it's only like 200-300 units. To cover lots of ground, you're better off going for Teleport. Flash is best used as a reaction/reflex type move.

Let's look at DotA. When you play in pubs, you rarely saw Blink Dagger. Forget what it's kalled right now. Anyway basically you never saw people get it. But top-tier playing blink was one of the most important items for many heroes. Well LoL gives everyone that ability with summoner spell.

Think of it as something that's awesome, but you haven't figured out why yet.
