i posted this message some weeks ago but it looked like noone understood why i was angry about this change. I hope i found a better explanantion now. Iam a Singed main (~ Platin) with 800-1000 games.
Now i found this Video here and its the perfect example why i think this new mechanic is totally shit:
So Riot wants us to do this: Setup his adhesive, fling enemie into it. But its really really really scripted and not "playable" in 99% of his games.
Actually i would like it like this: throw adhesive behind adc, run towards him, when adc leaves the adhesive you throw him in again, you land the root, after the root he need to escape the adhesive... (cc'ed for like 10 seconds) but adhesive doesnt last this long. So this play is impossible
I need to choose: setup this mechanic and land a root or just slow the enemie and fling him towards my team. Guess what i choose? NOT the new mechanic, because when you fail this thing (which is quite common right now because fling is bugged like hell), you put your W on a useless place and flinged adc somewhere else, no slow, nothing. It is easier, and actually better NOT to land his root in this way and just play normal like always.
What i think will be the most common play with this new mechanic: Put adhesive into enemies, run to adc (he is behind the adhesive, or flashes out of it), fling him towards your team, land the root, your team focus adc, adc dead. Sounds good right?
now i want to compare it to common singed play without this new update: Put adhesive into enemies, run to adc, fling him towards your team, everyone focus him down, adc dead.
Its the same. You dont need a root because your team will kill the adc anyways, if you fling him into your team. So riot gave singed players a "win more button". Singed dont need this root to win the game, because when i can fling the adc into my team, the teamfight IS won. I dont care about the root or not, because my team doesnt care about it too...
TL;DR: this new mechanic is useless, its hard to setup and the setup is really bad. There are better ways to use your adhesive, the only GOOD play with this mechanic is impossible because adhesive doesnt last this long, and your root is just a "win-more-button".
There are BETTER ways to buff singed:
Give him tenacity on his ult back
Let his AA "restack" the poison (you have 3 ticks again)
Give him tenacity/movementspeed when he runs away from someone
his adhesive applies his poison, or doubles it when the enemie stands in it
if you really want to improve Singed's laning give him 1 DMG on his W, so he can stop backports. (this would be lane breaker and the best buff possible)
Let him apply poison on his AA's
