I am an old Twitch player and I tested him today. He feels very weak and fragile, very mana hungry (due to the constant re-stealth) and his supposed high damage expunge is a false advertisement. The AD scaling is very very slow with expunge, even a 6 stacks poisoned enemy gets a surprisingly low damage after being expunged.

Besides being squishie, Twitch has to be invisible to avoid direct confrontation and to initiate the combat with time advantage. Now everytime Twitch stealths, the enemies retreat because they will be SURE that in 8 seconds (level 5) Twitch IS somewhere.

I made a post in page 27 with an interrogation point between the old and new Twitch. But now I can add a period. Twitch is worse and not a viable choice for ranked AND normal games.

I hope i can get to use twitch From the gameplay i've seen of him with the gameplayer Sykkuno, he looks legit. He looks fast, strong and is very mischeavous because of his deadly venom. Again nice job on making him, i'll make sure to get him as soon as I can.

I agree with everything that Mikhaelis has said 2 posts ahead of me. I tried him and now he is worse. I had a hard time just trying to keep my kill/death ratio at 1. I do like his speed buff when invisible and the new workings for that but the expunge took a great nerf and that has now ruined him. That was the only thing that made up for his squishy AD Carry attributes. He is no match for any other AD Carries now.

Edit: I must add that Venom Cask is also a good change but with that nerf to Expunge, it doesn't really help out a lot except for retreating or instigating a team fight.

"Twitch has to run, but can't escape Xin Zhao without killing him."

Phreak, you really are the worst thing about this community, you cocky piece of ****. You can't just say "Twitch tries to run, but is forced to fight Xin Zhao to survive."?
