    I haven't had any trouble with iBlitz's hooks o.O

    I haven't see any IBlitz, so I don't know but I don't think it's that invisible from what I've seen from a video.

    It's... a small-ish hand attached to a white/transparent laser.
    I don't know, I like that they change the spell effects to fit the skins better, but they should still be of similar size/visibility.

    I find it easier to dodge iBlitz hooks. The hand is such a bright blue that it's hard to miss flying at you.

    I'd say Taric is more commonly played because he's a very strong support (and fairly cheap as well) while Swain isn't a particularly amazing AP, not because he's overly complicated in comparison. Do you have any source where Riot frankly state that the old Radiance being complicated was the reason for the rework?

    You remember how PFE's Q had a larger hitbox.
    I bet Riot is doing it on purpose.

    Of course not. But it's not exactly unknown that between all the MOBA games, LoL is the less complicated of them all. So a change like that was not surprising.

    Really? Taric is a support before anything else, that means he can't afford to waste so much mana on a spell that quite frankly only heals himself and gives his allies a very meager amount of AD compared to how much it would cost to keep it up for a prolonged period of time.

    Swain, while cool, is a "tankier" AP mid, and we don't need tanks in mid these days, we need damage dealers, and Swain just simply has too long cooldowns and his ultimate's missiles are too slow, imo. Not to mention he has to build tanky items with mana to be able to keep his ulti up, which hinders his damage a bit.

    To be frank, I just started an argument because I was tired of hearing you whining about Taric's ultimate again when his current one is just fine. It's an opportunity-ultimate which is quite frankly crazy for a teamfight.

    Whoo boy.
    (Also, he was completely fine with mana if you didn't keep it on 24/7.)

    The absolute teamfight focus is 95% of the reason I stopped playing LoL, his current one is shit. I'll keep whining about it until Riot un-ruins it so get used to it.

    Well, yeah, I'm well aware, I just couldn't find any sources hinting towards it being too hard to handle. It was mentioned together with the Sona and Soraka sustain nerfs though, so I'm figuring that was the real reason.

    And well, I guess that Taric was a godlike pusher with the old Radiance. Not to mention, hello free B.F. Swords. :x

    I'm not even joking. People would run OOM because they'd forget to turn it off. >_>

    Every time someone mentions DotA it reminds me Abbadon isn't in the game yet.

    That's because Swain doesn't fit the current meta and Taric does?

    As long as half my team blindly walks into the hooks, there will still be blitzcranks.
    Every aram ever. "Don't stand in the front of the bush, they have blitz"
    "HEY GUYS I'M RYZE I CAN DO WHATEVER I WANT". Hook. Dead. "OMG THANKS FOR THE HELP TEAM"

    I'll actually give you this one, because I read the 5/10/15 number as the one he gave to allies. I didn't notice it was minions. Sorry.

    Why? It IS a team game, it's not "1v1 me bro" or shit like that. Matches without proper teamfights are incredibly boring.

    I'd wager this is a lot of the reason. It was way too powerful for a toggle. A support should have good utility, but that one was over the top.

    If Swain had some form of speeding up/escape, he could have been a very good top.

    I actually noticed the bonus used to be larger than it is now. Funny huh.

    Even in heavily organized pro games in Counter Strike, people don't all go down the middle corridor through de_dust and see who can press their triggers the fastest. Teamwork means working together, not working next to eachother.

    Well obviously, because FPS games are a lot about tactical placement.

    I just hate it when LoL/Dota 2 games only consist of getting more dudes to kill one dude, or having an assassin just instagib someone over and over again, and that's how the whole match goes. Big teamfights are a lot more fun.

    I initially wanted to say something like that, but I figured you'd do it for me <3.
