Zyra Gameplay / Skin Bug

Hi guys,

It's difficult to describe the bug I've been experiencing with Zyra lately, so I'm hoping that other users will be able to verify this bug as well. Ever since the Preseason 3 patch, I noticed that Zyra's plant's AI has been off. They are not appropriately attacking targets and are "resetting" their attack randomly when attacking minions, causing a delay of roughly 4-5 seconds inbetween each attack. I never experienced this problem prior to the patch so I assumed it was due to the nerf; however, last night I had a realization that I have only been playing Zrya with her Wildfire skin since the preseason patch (I bought it with the patch). As a result, I played Zyra with her standard skin yesterday and noticed that the plant's AI was not as "dumb." I've been playing between the two skins and definitely noticed that the plants with Zyra's Wildfire skin are not appropriately attacking and have a strange AI; whereas Zyra's standard skins plants are fine. Would you please be able to address and/or look into this issue?

Thanks!

Update: I included this thread in the Champion Discussion forum too and someone else confirmed my realization. Here's a link to the thread:

ditto on this, I play ALOT of Zyra, and her plants have some awful lag/delay with their attacking. Even when attacking the same target, they will fire.. pause... pause.. fire... fire... pause... pause.... fire.

It's really crappy because it severely limits the burst damage of her abilities, and also makes clearing jungle camps quite difficult as two spitter plants might get one attack before one of them is killed by the wolves due to the delayed next strike.

It's noticeably bad, and I hope this wasn't some sort of intentional nerf because she got nerfed enough (not saying she was overnerfed or anything) in this last patch.

on a side note, I definitely noticed this since getting the fire skin, and some people seem to be saying that it is an issue with the skin. Hotfix plz Riot!

Yeah, I think it is the skin too. Hopefully we can get a red to respond/validate the bug.

I've noticed this too, my first game on Wildfire Zyra I missed like 1-2 kills because the plants were attacking much slower then normal, enemy got away with like 100 hp both times :/

I want to use the skin but it just makes me do less damage
