Hey, this isn't to serious of a bug, but it is possible for early game snowballing to occur because of it.

Anyway, when playing Jayce top I got ganked by a maokai. About 1 second after he twisted advanced to me I used the knock back ability in hammer form and it cause his snare to reoccur instantly after. At first I thought I was just seeing things but I have seen the same bug occur three times now. Figured I'd get it out into the open.

Also I have no idea if it only happens to Jayce or if it happens to any champion with a Knock back.

*EDIT* I have video proof of the bug now, In case it is necessary.

Have seen this with Lux's snare on him before he was about to root a target. It's really, really dumb when you make an instantaneous cc reaction to something like this and THE MAOKAI gets rewarded for your perfect reaction and snares you anyway. Dumb bugs--yet "intended" things like Darius' ult hitting you a screen away are "suppose" to work that way according to direct Riot quotes so who knows if this bs is a bug or not. *shrug*

Yep, It`s really annoying if you get killed from a Maokai gank when this happens.

Happens with Jarvan's EQ away from a Maokai snare as well, IIRC. Don't know if it was just a visual bug or if the snare gets re-applied.

At first I thought you were just confused because Maokai doesn't have to stand on you when you are rooted in place so even if you knocked him back you would still be CCed. Then I watched the video and the root is clearly being applied twice in both instances. Nice catch!
