well do we potentially get refunded for false advertisement if we payed RP for it?

Less QQ, more Pew Pew

I was more interested in him for LAZER BYRD, not because of a damage over time effect.

Still, I see your point. I've no experience with Maledict, and very little experience with DotA, but perhaps Riot will clear this up in the future.

I'm sure we'll see the old version of the spell back some day on someone else
I appreciate the comment, but is there anyway it could be changed? Maybe add the effect to the bird and put the slow on torment? Change torment to a hard nuke or something that makes him fun. I know he was just released but I believe a lot of people are disappointed.

That's a poor reason to scrap this skill on him. Why not make it just the way maledict is? Make it so that health loss due to any source (not just from Swain) increases the periodic dmg by some number?

This could be a solution, switching him from single target killer to aoe support. The only issue is probably for skills like Xin Zhao's Ultimate and DFG. DotA had Dagon but was still somehow balanced

Sounds like a classic bait and switch to me.

Swain is the worst champ i've ever seen, one Swain is capable to ruin the game due to his bad design.
A ton of dmg, slow, lifesteal and the best is he has no cooldown.
If you target him 3v1 you can kill him, but do that in a team fight and your team will be killed.
Seriously Swain is even worst than the first Xin, this time Riot really really screw the game with this champ.
And i'm not the only one who thinks this champ sux.
