Why can't flash and ghost work as a function of how you're using them?

If you are flashing or ghosting TOWARD an enemy champ, give each of them great bonuses -- this promotes aggressive play.

On the other hand, if using flash or ghost to flee away from enemy champs, give Flash and Ghost reduced flashing distance and reduced speedup boosts, respectively.

.. some heros NEED flash..
If they need flash, then they NEED it built into their skillset at base.

being able to flash a projectile that has been clicked on you while its in mid air makes this game unique and fun..
You could replace that with a Spellblock Summoner Spell (blocks all incoming spells and cc effects for 2 seconds) and it would be less gamebreaking.

like flashing taric stun.. or sion stun.. being clutch..

Sorry Gentleman Troll but you are very wrong. Ghost has way more uses and is way more flexible.. The only heros i still take flash on are say annie.. AP sion.. well prolly not AP sion anymore since his shield doesnt have an animation so no mobility loss.. what im tryign to say is.. when you get in a higher ELO flash is NOT a get out of jail free card..

So only read to page 5...No one mentioned Nunu But just like countless people have already said (in just the first 5 pages):
Making it into an item would be far to expensive for most tanks (Alistar and Nunu) who already have a problem farming up gold. (Absolute Zero on a creep wave, gogogo!)

Make the spell like Blink Dagger. Only usable when you haven't been hit for x (most likely 3) seconds.
Since it already can't be casted when you're silenced, sounds like a quick fix in the coding...but idk.

If you look, there's a lot more people that believe flash is inherently unwanted and something should be done about it.

Well , I think removing flash is a super buff for Yi or Olaf~Maybe melees can do a much better job in team fights.
That's good ,cuz we can have more team compositons for melee .

for a player who doesn't use flash, i find it very annoying when somebody uses flash through a wall and escapes before a nuke is set off, such as annie's stun/ult combo, nunu's ultimate, or any ultimate for that matter. at least with ghost and heal, they have only a chance to get away or to survive it.

So, all the changes are made so this game is better for noobs?
Just leave flash as it is.

EDIT: Some champions have spells that are just as bugged as flash.For example, Ezreal and Kassadin blink-like spells can dodge double up, even if they are the primary target.
