Just because someone didn't call mia, doesn't mean it's entirely their fault their lane came to gank your lane.
As someone else has ranted about every champ having an escape ability, I think people have just become spoiled with many champions having an escape mechanism somehow. To make her Q a skill shot doesn't seem to make sense.
Have you ever done fencing? Or know what it's about? To sum it up briefly, there's 2 people with 2 swords and your object is to "poke" them in the chest (there's chest gear and stuff). And a way to hit them is to lunge at them. It doesn't make sense just to lunge in the air really.
Anyhow, that's just my opinion on why I think her Q shouldn't be change to a skill shot. Just have good map awareness and you should be fine.
I really like your comment. Probably the best I've seen all day. I don't know much about fencing and perhaps Riot was taking this into consideration while designing the ability, however, I would like to know your thoughts on the ability to single target ally champions, minions, and wards. Jax's Leap Strike has this ability and a higher ad ratio than Lunge (I think its +1.0 or something). I'm not saying Jax should be nerfed or anything, but I think give him some pretty creative ways to gank, escape, and other insane antics (e.g. placing a ward over the baron wall and leaping to it). What do you think?
