There is an important distinction to be made here, and I hope I can explain it clearly.
"Empire" Nunu is a bug. It was not intended functionality and it's completely counter intuitive. However, it's a great deal of Nunu's power at this point, and it's something that has a lot of community backing. At some point, we'd like to come to a good solution that preserves Nunu's awesomeness while fixing these problems, but we have not done so yet.
The change to Nunu is also
a bug. This change was an accidental result of something completely unrelated. It did not have design sign-off, nor did anyone even know it was shipping. It is not a change we wanted to make, and it's not a net positive (some accidents are great
), so we're reverting it.
