Here's the vid by xFSN Saber displaying some of the Caitlyn's mechanics
I'm positive that vast majority of the players who pick Cait don't do any of this stuff or probably don't even know you can do it. Yet, it's still in the game, it's something cool that only advanced players can do.
A while back Nidalee had a few similar tricks, like resetting her AA by pouncing and changing her forms, but Riot removed those mechanics saying that since only a small percentage of players can do them and benefit from them, they will have to balance her around the fact that you **have** to know how to make use of those mechanics.
Where's the consistency?
