Because, in League of Legends, almost all abilities that are delayed area of effects, are also projectiles. (Braum ult, Naut ult, Anivia snowball, etc.) Darius Q being delayed necessitates it as NOT being a projectile. It can't be coded that way and still make sense, especially considering the existence of projectile blocks like Windwall and Braum's shield. So Riot just needs to stop being lazy. Those abilities are projectiles tho, at least according to the games definition of one. The way projectiles are in this game is pretty much "an ability/attack that leaves the champion and has a travel speed." I haven't seen darius since the rework, but old darius didn't fulfill those specifications. i actually think i remember someone asking about braum/naut specifically awhile back and that was the response given

Imo it's a female champ. Not sure who but the face looks feminine.

Um this makes first pick also have last pick. Wouldn't that be a little one-sided in the currect pick/ban meta?

If you could edit rune pages you'd only need one. That's like the whole point of buying new pages.
: We know that flash is by and large a top tier summoner and everything else fights for tier 2. Generally we would say that more choice is better but in this case we haven't gone too far in trying to squash flash because we think the game is more fun and has some pretty great high "gamebreaking" moments built around the extreme power on an extreme cooldown that flash provides. The idea that we have been kicking around if we were to ever revisit or update the summoners is to pick a few similar to flash style spells and buff them up majorly so that they could compete with smite directly (eg. ghost, teleport, etc). We'd probably have to make it so that you could only pick 1 of those "power summoners" if we knowingly made them strong. Not forecasting any real changes, just sharing some thoughts we've had on the subject.

Why not just add a third summoner spell slot for flash, and players get two summs of their choice + flash? It would be even better if this made it so that flash was not affected by summoner spell cdr. This would allow cleanse/ignite mid laners, more fights top, etc.

Every champion does 100%AD on hit, why should one champion be different? I'm pretty sure it only goes to 90% IF she hops. So, if she doesn't hop, she deals 100% of her AD. It also makes stacking AD items and hopping less useful (it's 90% of total AD).
Anidan (NA)
: Mechanics are one thing, but unless you're effectively gold+ then your mechanics won't get you as far as you'd like. Unless you have very, very good mechanics that far surpass your current rank (which is probably unlikely, all things said) then you NEED vision, even in Bronze. All the mechanics in the world won't save you from a 3v1 you didn't see coming. Needless to say, one of the chief problems I run into in my friend's Bronze games is lack of vision. Whichever side has less vision tends to lose, whether it's less vision because the enemy team is actually clearing wards (yes, you sometimes see that in Bronze - it's as beautiful to me as it is to you), or because the losing team just plain isn't putting down vision. The only time I've noted that it isn't true is when more than person (note, not even just one) displays mechanics that are above average for the match in question, whether they deserve better or they just had a great game.
