I was playing as Leona and I used her ultimate to pop a Sivir's spell shield. My team killed her, but I got no assist from it.
I'm curious to know if this is intentional or not. Isn't popping a spell shield/BV somewhat strategic? For example, if your Annie wants to Flash in and stun-nuke a target that has BV up, Leona could use her ultimate to pop it first, then Annie can Flash-stun-nuke in to secure a kill.
I'm not complaining that I didn't get an assist, I'm just interested to see what the logic and intention is behind this.
