hm... the death of the superman leash, and less importantly the over the wall leash from mid. This will make leashing a real pain in the butt. Actually it wont, because leashes just became extinct if your a squishy ap mid champ. GG, WP.

"Jungle monsters now attack the nearest target rather than attempting to chase their original attacker to make their behavior more consistent"

So you're getting rid of leashing basically? Or punishing the leasher by forcing them to stay close and absorb damage. This is a low blow, Riot.

I guess now the junglers will have to have people help them attack the hell out of the target before they smite it. Makes them less likely to gank so early do to lower health. Well thought-out Riot.

Kayles out of the jungle now... Too squishy to be taking much more damage in the jungle, especially now with no leash. This is actually going to make it harder for people to jungle.

Please don't let that happen. Counter jungling seems to be really more dangerous right now, and i don't think it's fair for champions with no sustain... Are you considering how to avoid this issue?.

Ah the lol community fickle and forgetful. Does everyone forget that the original jungle was tough as nails and still existed just fine hell it was the strongest roll in the game a forged in fire scenario. Jungle will survive and people will still do it the meta will go on.

No more leashing? I hope these new items are effective!

This might make Eve non-viable in the jungle. She's already not that great with her lack of sustain early game.
