Actually, you can see everyone buys wards, everywhere are wards and nobody can gank because of wards. This makes most junglers useless. Also, they make the game very passive because you can just sit in your lane and farm without any chance OF being ganked. And you don't have to look every time ator because you have a ward there. So here is my suggestion for putting wards into the right place:
- Increase vision range of wards by 10%. Also increases duration of wards by 10 seconds.
- Cost: 35
- Effect: Covers an area of 1000 with stealth-detecting mist, granting vision of units. Lasts 15 seconds, max 5 stacks (unaffected by Scout)
- Is now avaiable at Summoner's Rift.
- This also includes the incoming stealth rework.
This would remove the warding for total map control and ward hunting from the game. That will remove a big chunk of the passive gameplay and allow people to do more and more risky things. Finally, the wards act now more like(this means you have to know where and when to ward) You could also remove from the game after this change so only would allow to have that control.
