So after playing the new TT I have noticed something that riot seems to have either completely ignored or left in to see if people would exploit it.

The bush placement around the speed shrine and then immediately intop lane and bot lane is screwed.

If you play Rengar, no foe can out run you. Combining the speed shrine with rengars passive leap from the bushes and at how conviently the bushes are placed on the map, makes it impossible to out run him. This means that if you fight rengar and run you have guaranteed him a kill.

Next we look at Nidalee who has a passive of gaining move speed when moving through bushes. Now again look at the speed shrine and the placement of the bushes around it. Played right u can have inexcess of 450 movespeed with just lvl 2 boots, combined with the speed relic and nidalee's cougar form w skill, we have yet another character who you can not out run.

But unlike rengar, nidalee can also use this passive to escape and kite enemies. And since they have designed TT to be based around the middle jungle area of the map, it just helps to reinforce the exploitation of this problem.

So since this map is in the beta, I would like to see some changes to the horrible bush placement riot has made and I can't believe they designed the map so favourably for these two champions.

This is not a problem per se, it's just a quirk of the map, and neither of those champions are OP.

It's a quirk that gives an unfavourable advantage to both rengar and nidalee.....its a problem that riot should have seen.

There's a deal of problems with brush on this map.

I wrote a lot about it in my thread (though that's only a summary), but, of course, no one wants to spend time to read.

I do hate that rengar wasn't even affected by his nerfs. He is still imba as hell on this map. Honestly i don't even try to fight a level 1 against a rengar, because unless he jumps out on accident its almost a guaranteed loss unless you are using darius, jax, olaf or some other 3 imba characters.
