But it already functions as impassable terrain D:

With effects this impactful, that contribute significantly to a champion's identity, however sparing use is much more appropriate. In this particular case we felt confident using projectile blocking a second time in quick succession was a good choice however, given the way you think about and use the abilities in question is very different as Braum than as Yasuo. The thematics/mechanics fit on a champion with a giant shield and a protective, helpful attitude also proved to be an extremely good match.

You gonna make any other "Global Teleport" Champions in the future? Like Shen, Tf, Nocturne?

Yeah no, it's a different skill that does a different thing.

If we buff Anivia at some point I'd much prefer we do so in a way that accentuates one of her points of distinctiveness, than homogenizing her, Braum's and Yasuo's kits a bit.

Feels like we made Yasuo and Braum instead of nerfing Nidalee.

give her assists on her wall when an enemy touches it and dies

We've been kicking around a few different ideas for how to do them in ways that keep the cool moments they generate without creating as many game balance issues as some of them have in the past. No promises, and at the least we won't have any coming out in the short term, we're certainly not opposed to the idea though.

I just hate those skills because I like Nami and her ultimate is a wide, slow projectile, meaning that a halfway comepetent Braum or Yasuo can completely negate my best ability. You can say 'bait out the shield!' but that's kinda hard to do when your only other option is throwing Qs and hoping one hits, and that has a decently large cooldown for most of the game.
