Map Specific Balancing - Twisted Treeline & Dominion

Hey Summoners,

With Patch 3.9, we’ll be setting a new precedent by approaching champion balance separately on different maps and modes. This will be an ongoing process to address the most egregious balance outliers on each map in an attempt to improve overall player experience. With each change, we’ll aim for problematic attributes specific to the map or mode. This generally means that we’ll try to preserve what’s unique about each character, though at times concessions will need to be made. We’ve decided to introduce this concept by hitting Kassadin on Crystal Scar and Singed on Twisted Treeline - if these changes are successful, we’ll follow suit with additional tweaks in the following patches. You can read our two changes below. ManWolfAxeBoss and I will be around to answer some additional questions throughout the day.

Twisted Treeline

Singed

  • Armor per level decreased to 2 from 3.5
  • Insanity Potion cooldown increased to 120 seconds from 100

Crystal Scar

Kassadin
  • Riftwalk cooldown increased to 9/8/7 seconds from 7/6/5
  • Riftwalk range decreased to 600 from 700

Please also make a cap for Teemo's mushrooms (Like Caitlyn traps) or increase cooldown or reduce stacks to 2 for Twisted treeline.

We'll probably hit his mushrooms for 3.10.

So, I hate kass, but are you aware that Level 1 Riftwalk will no longer be able to be stacked unless you have CDR?

What, that's the best you can do for Singed? I was hoping you were going to reduce the base damage of Poison Trail and Fling to zero or something. I don't think anyone is even going to notice those changes.

This is a really cool idea. Well done riot! The wiki will get a little more complicated though now.
