Looking forward to all the Sparta jokes and 300 references, the guaranteed critical might be overpowered in my opinion, but I guess I'll just have to see myself. I'm really liking these constant updates but I personally would like to see a new mode and map sometime soon.

Can we have a skin for him straight from 300?

Yeah, but it shouldn't be a big deal.

They both have a similar skill. It's not the end of the world. Ryze has a bouncing nuke, but Yi has a skill that deals damage to multiple units as well, I don't think that's been too much of a problem.

Besides doesn't Nidalee's magic hippie spear gain damage the longer it flies, Mr.Spartan's doesn't I believe (not sure here). I don't think this'll cause too much of a problem.

If by similar skill you mean the javelins, it's nowhere near the same. Nidalee's is a nice lazy skillshot that gains damage as it flies and has medium to long range. Pantheon's is a targeted short range nuke based off his atk damage.

Well that is good to hear, but I am also referring to the similarities Heartseeker Strike has with Swipe and Takedown, where in swipe and heartseeker striker they attack the area in front of them and in takedown and heartseeker strike it deals bonus damage when the enemy is low.

Takedown (Cougar): Nidalee jumps at the throat of her target, dealing her attack damage plus a static bonus. The damage of this skill increases the lower life percentage the target has

Swipe (Cougar): Nidalee slashes wildly in front of her, dealing moderate damage in a large area

Heartseeker Strike: Pantheon unleashes 5 swift strikes to the area in front of him. Pantheon also becomes more aware of his enemy’s vital spots, allowing him to always critically strike enemies below 20% health.
