It may just be me, but for the last few champions and reworks Riot has done it felt like they were just... trying too hard to find new mechanics. A bunch of them were cool, like Quinn's bird-transformation, Graves getting a real shotgun, and the last few troll ults. But with Jhin it just feels kindof stupid, and doesn't feel as origional as Riot had intended. It's just his passive to me, everything else on his kit seems cool.

I've been waiting for this since it was released on the pbe, and now that this new patch is finally released what does Riot decide to do? Not release it. There was even a hotfix today, so when I logged on I thought "FINALLY IT'S HERE"... but no. Was it very glitchy in the PBE or something? I just really want to see it come out because it seems so imaginativeRead more >
