This is really all I care about, do they like the new TT?

When riot did changes to the jungle in SR I had a few trusted names telling me how it affected champs...dudes like stonewall and what not mentioning aoe farming being a big bonus etc.

Where are the pro TT player's comments on this new one...I assume riot contacted a few of them in the testing phase.

Well, I had the pleasure to fly out there to Riot HQ to give some feedback to the map before PBE came up. So mhm... I hope you guys enjoy their hard work.

can you please tell me if TT feel to it is intact? or does it feel like a new game type?
what i am asking is, will this be enhanced TT or only the name and the 3v3 will remain?

I've been playing for just over 2 years now. All I've ever played was TT. With a 5v5 every now and then. Though my core being 3v3. As a vet, I'm extremely concerned about the changes.. All that was ever needed was a graphical update, and the late game turtling problem. Everything else is NOT needed. The pace of the game was perfect, does not need to be more arcadey, fast paced and dumbed down. Just a smaller Summoner's rift basically. Yes you get the egotistical players who are all about champ vs champ ****. Do not listen to them. \@_@/

It was balanced as is. I could play almost every variant of champ, lose some. Win some. Any disadvantage one champ would have, would make up with their advantage. Please don't change.

Though the graphical update is looking amazing Riot, after staring at the blue for the past 2 years of my life, I could swear I was on Viagra.

You lied to me! Sort of...anyways

My 2 cents: I don't feel like the old TT was left very much intact, particularly strategies that involved any mystery like sneaking dragons, or starting off the game with double jungle top. The top jungle is gone, sneaking the epic mob is a lot more difficult because you have to go through lane to get there, red buff is replaced with a speed shrine and theres a TON of new really powerful items and elixirs.

The pacing seems like it will be faster, but honestly I have no idea how to approach the map atm and I was s1 gold and s2 plat in 3s.

Still, I'm keeping an open mind. It could be fun, but I'm really gonna miss the top jungle.

Edit: Played around some more. Everything I like about the old TT is gone, wall jumping, ambushes, ambiguous starting strategies, and sneak tactics in general are all gone. The map by itself isn't inherently bad, but it takes away too much of the old map for me to want it as a replacement. Hell, you can't even buy wards anymore.
