Honestly, i believe this is probably the best change to the game Rito has made since like season 5. With this change, games no longer snowball anywhere near as fast, and are a lot more strategic again, the game is no longer "its 20 min, time to deathball 5v5 around Baron till someone takes it and wins!". Baron has become a lot riskier earlier and this results in people playing around the map again, instead of just around Baron cause it's 20 mins and you can't afford to be elsewhere.
Honestly, thank you so much Riot! this change has made the game so much fun, once again!
