Can someone tell me why Promote was removed?

Will it ever come back or what?

Low/Mid-Elo bracket wasn't able to counter 5man-Promote. As it's broken this way, it got removed until they find a solution to this.

Because 5 man promote teams were much too powerful. It will be coming back after they rework it.

Alright good, I suggest they just allow 1 person on the team to have it like champions are.

Promote was removed because stacked it was ridiculously overpowered, and is currently being remade i believe. no idea when it will make its return if ever.

I'm thinking they didn't like the design where it was overpowered only if everyone uses it at the same time in a team, but was otherwise meh.

Promote was removed because when stacked it was ridiculously terrible when stacked, but many people were too narrow minded to actually take advantage of how bad of a strat it was.

FIX'T

Well promote could still work as an ability for an upcoming champion.
Or the could either just nerf it to the point of uselesness or make it a duration buff.
I think it will return. Its such a good idea for a spell not to be brought back.
