And I'm guessing you don't have a clue about game design.

When a champion revolves around an item, and said item is a better itemisation choice than any other option, then something needs changing. Being pigeon-holed into one build isn't fun, nor is it ideal. Ever heard about the "Open Meta?" This is the situation where multiple lane match-ups, team comps, and item builds are equally viable because everything is balanced. This is what Riot is shooting for. One ideal item is completely counter to this goal. Evidently they felt it was easier to remove the item than change it.

They probably have other items they want to implement anyway.

Dota is small. HoN is dead. Pro players don't design games, they analyse and exploit them. Please think before you mash your fingers into that keyboard of yours.

Tiamat/Hydra will be a better item than Ionic Spark in most respects. Riot is even considering replacing the Regrowth Pendants in the recipe with a Ruby Crystal or Kindlegem, letting you keep your AOE+HP item path.

Ionic Spark has always been total **** anyway.

Ionic spark is a great item and was a neccessity for at least one of the champs I played. I doubt the new item will be as good for my build meaning I may have to stop playing one of my fav champs... it makes me sad *tear* to see it go

you really think none of the 4 new Attack speed items will help at all?
