    it also shows minutes instead of just seconds on skills and spells, if longer than a minute.

    Didn't they change his ulti to a snare only ability ages ago?

    It still renders their carries unable to move for 2 seconds, which is still beyond good. I love it when people think a champ gets completely destroyed because they changed something.

    Um, that's something you set up in LoL settings.

    You can set cooldown format in game options, that's nothing new nor it is any addon.

    Irregardless of when it happened, changing a large AoE stun to a snare is pretty big business. Yes, it'll still be strong, but a properly fed AD carry could still wreck substantial havoc while it couldn't first.
    Obviously this still allows for the popular Wombo-Combo instagib entire team setups. But I'd almost prefer Galio, since the player then does lose control over his/her champion.

    Amumu ultimate in its current state is terribly OP. It is still going to be very, very strong even after change to a simple snare as it's a huge AoE CC, but maybe I'll see Amumu banned less thanks to that.

    Choosing a champ entirely based on ult? =P

    Amumu still has very strong ganks with his bandage toss, so he's still very good.

    Whereas Galio's kit isn't super impressive.

    Its been a snare for ages, does Amumu seem weak currently? Right now he is one of the top picks/bans. Not only does he scale very well into late game either as a tank or a tanky DPS his jungle clear times after blue buff especially are very very fast, he is probably one of the fastest leveling junglers in the game, one of the very few that I see keep up with solo laners.

    If anything is OP, it's a 2 second AoE stun with gigantic range which isn't really hard to pull off since he can just flash or bandage toss in the middle of your team. Making it a snare really didn't break it. Making it a root in which you can still autoattack won't break it either. In the current state, a good Amumu ulti with a decent team behind him basically wind an entire fight, and you don't have to be a rocket scientist to pull it off either.

    right now? no, because it stops auto attacks, and carries that don't take cleanse don't do anything while they get immediately exploded. after the patch? they'll be able to auto attack. amumu is also one of the most prone to counter jungling and jungle duels. he's a bitch that gets slapped hard by anyone that has any duel potential.

    amumus true strength lies in follow up. press r comps like amumu mf dominate right now. it's a nearly unbeaten team comp in OGN winter so far. his ult will still be amazing, but at least a carry with cleanse down wont be absolutely 100% completely useless while they die immediately.

    Amumu's ult behaves more like a stun than a root/snare right now, that's why they're going to allow auto-attacking while his ultimate is up to make the original wording of "snare" actually mean something else than "nobody can do anything."

    Erm, no it doesn't? It's a snare. You can cast things. Like all snares.

    Amumu will still be strong, now people can just AA during his ult. Until now his ult had a unique form of CC that worked like a root, only you couldn't AA. Now it's just a standard root.

    Imagine if Leona's ultimate has two-to-three times the radius, and stunned everywhere in it. Yes, that's how Amumu's ultimate is right now.
    (Granted, Leona's is ranged, but still.)

    Amumu will still be incredibly strong. His Q has a massive range, his W still does insane damage, even more with E. Now it's just not a "durr screw up the whole enemy team with a button"-spell.

    That's why I was slightly confused myself, since I saw other video's being posted, where as my video was one of those "Kill montages" (Like people call them), thanks for the clarification though.

    That's why some of mage picks (Karthus, Orianna), as well as in the other roles (Amumu and MF in the aforementioned AoE "Press R" teamcomps) are very hot picks right now. Their ults can really change the outcome of major teamfights if used correctly.

    Why do so few people play AD Nidalee top? I just used her my two most recent ranked games and destroyed. First was against Yorick. Went into the game expecting to jungle, enemy team picked Yorick after we picked Riven, Riven goes jungle and I get to counter with Nidalee. Killed Yorick a few times then he was too scared to come at me so I had free farm and pushed top to the inhib before they surrendered.

    Fast-forward to today where I am again allowed to counter-pick the top lane, a Jayce. I was thinking taking Vi for her sheer damage to bully him out but Jayce has a lot of disengages and I was sitting on Nidalee when the timer ran out, my other pick. I don't often face Jayce so I don't know his counters on hand, but I figured Nidalee would do the trick. 5 failed enemy Lee Sin ganks and a few kills later I was ahead and giving Jayce no chance to come back. I hit legendary before they could kill me once, and that was because I only got greedy and chased the Lee Sin into a full health Vayne and Jayce. I still almost got away (damn flashes).

    So yeah, LoL needs more AD Nidalee play (not AP. Too many missed spears).
