i use flash on 99 percent of the casters i play and many carrys to INITIATE fights becuase when your playing say anivia only an idiot will let you get close enough to stun them so you can combo. or only an indiot will let tf gold card them. or alistair whos slow as **** headbutt them into your turret or team. just a thought.

it's irritating at best... cleanse could probably use another cooldown nerf, though.

Summoner spells in general ruin the game.

Not putting out enough DPS but HAVE to get that free kill? Ignite.
Walked too close to Annie while her stun was up? Cleanse.
Got over aggressive in lane and about to die? Flash or Heal.

99% of summoner spell use is people covering their arse when they make a mistake.

I don't mind it still being in, it helps my heimer with no escapability at all survive a lot...

... but enrages me when a shaco,kass,ez takes it >:|

Flash is lame. It's a giant skill eraser. But, the same could be said for teleport, exhaust... pretty much all the summoner spells. They all give you abilities you couldn't otherwise have.

It's still the worst of them all though. In a game where movement speed / positioning is like 50% of skill, flash is just too big of a crutch.

Gotta go.

why not give flash a cast time, interruptible by CC?

What do you think would happen to champs like Ezreal and Kassadin with built in flash?

And you thought we'd already seen Kass and Ezreal FotM.

I can pull up the quote if you wish.
to be honest i don't think dota is that much more complicated then league. it has a higher skill ceiling sure but it's not complicated for the sake of being complicated.

i really think riot should take another page from dota and make flash into an item. if they make it like blink dagger then it would mostly be an initiator and maybe support item as all it would provide is flash no atk, no def, no other stats whatsoever. also in dota blink dagger cost 2150 gold which is about 1100 or so in league gold which is quite a bit so carries would have to delay their core builds quite a bit just to get it.
