I have recoded Poppy's Heroic Charge spell from the ground up for this patch. The goals of this are to improve the charges detection of terrain and eliminate a few nasty edge case bugs where Poppy can stun enemies inappropriately even if missing terrain. All numerical elements of the skill should remain the same (cooldown, range, mana cost, damage etc)

There is one currently known bug of charging enemies on a glancing strike can cause the enemy to stop and be stunned but Poppy will continue charging. I'll be fixing this tomorrow morning for our next PBE push.

I'd like to shoot for getting it out next patch, but I'd like feedback from folks on how it feels first to be confident in going ahead with the change. If you guys could give it a go and see if you find any wonkiness with it that'd be greatly appreciated. Checking the feel of the ability versus the Live version especially would be very helpful. Thanks guys!

What about that flash bug, if poppy charges you to a wall even if you flash you will be sent back to the area she stunned you at. Its pretty late right now so i will test this out tomorrow.

Edit: Also Pony do you want us to put feedback here or make a new thread with the feedback.

Cool... makes me wonder, is this a precursor change to help out with future improvements on the poopers? (Aka: Something being worked on right now, not just the inevitable 'yeah eventually')

This isn't exclusive to Poppy though is it? Far too often i'll flash away from Volibear or Singed yet still get flipped.

I agree with you exe3 i believe that its similar to the volibear and singed flip I found videos of them doing it as well.

That's supposed to happen if you don't flash soon enough. Flash was able to break spells/attacks way back in the day, that's why it had to be nerfed because it was ridiculously overpowered.

No leave this in, unless you are fixing all the other champions who can do this, do not remove poppy's ability to do it, it will actually make her a weaker champion if you do so also lower mana costs on stuff or increase mana regen
