This. And the thing is you guys can't even give good reasoning as to why you changed it. The game isn't even all THAT passive. Games end about the same time as Starcraft games.. in an hour or less. You can't even counter-jungle anymore. I'd welcome being counter-jungled as opposed to playing the jungle in this patch. SO boring now.

And sorry, but this isn't an MMO. Catering to new or inexperienced players is a mistake. This is a strategy game and that's not your market here. All this game needs is an "easy to play hard to master" feel to it. You HAD this in the previous version of the game (without the jungle "revamp")

It's like you guys are confused about the direction you want to take this game into. You say you want a more "aggressive" game, and what do you do? Make the jungle a farm fest.. you nerf flash, AND you reduce the duration on wards (Cassiopeia patch) ? It's like you're trying to turn this into Dominion. Keep them separate games, please.

- A concerned player, IronChief

However, I am also sure there was a majority that were being underleveled and I am curious how they did not notice.
We did some adjustments towards the end, but they didn't have as much impact as we'd hoped.

DAMAGE CONTROL MODE ACTIVATED

It's funny how so many people called this and the only response we got was "You just don't like change."

It's even better that people were defending a clearly broken update. Sure is Riot defense force.

You guys purposely undershot the jungle so I wouldn't be tempted to play and would study for my exam tomorrow right?

I'm on to you guys.

I enjoy the new jungle. I have much more fun with it than the old one. I've been managing to keep up with mid lane with no issues. It did take a different set of runes/masteries though.

Oh well, in before jungler is highest level/most farmed now.
