Way to go, ****ed up my favorite champ. He can no longer scout, gank, or escape effectively with such a low stealth duration. The powers to be at Riot have failed me.

ROIT is very authoritarian and never listen to public opinion.

yeah im going to have to go on the HGUE list of people complaining about the changes. Twitch is STILL super squishy, with NO escape(you changed not only how long stealth lasts, but it takes longer to get INTO it after an attack as well). Twitches PRIMARY play style was to be a mobile ward/finisher for team fights. he cant go toe to toe with any other ad carry in the game without his stealth, especially late game when his poision is useless. So lets look at the changes:
HP - Same
mana- same
ability to escape - worse( his prior ability slowed ALL in range, not just the few hit with it), longer to stealth on top of it
damage output - no change, aside from the fact that its harder to position ones self on 8 seconds, let alone 3...also the first level stealth now means its IMPOSSIBLE to counter their jungler at start of the game, which is just AWESOME.

stealth recall-wait without maxed stealth i cant even stealth recall?!? seriously?

Attack speed from stealth-improved.

Now considering (as someone stated before me) that twitch wasnt a viable character for ranked as is(too squishy). HOW do these changes constitute an improvement? Not to mention WHY are you nerfing characters like twitch/eve who are already not played by many/easy to counter through smart play when their are characters that are MUCH better at snowballing.

p.s. Thank you for giving me back single player custom games. they are so much better than the 5v5bots as you can mess around with several builds before ending the game/really take your time to get to learn how to combo with a new character.
