I just got test realm today and tried out TF. It seemed like he was even more OP than last time. With TF's blue card he pretty much has unlimited mana. His new spell I didnt really use that much since I leveled it last, but it was nice doing double damage every 4th hit. His ult is still pretty OP though.
I actually just started playing a few days ago. I'm typically a ranged player in any game. Tried Tristana, didn't like her, gave TF a shot and did decently. Now I've got the hang of him a lot more (for low level play at least) and these changes have me worried.
Pick A Card I've never been great with, but seeing it nerfed saddens me. (Gold being easier to pick would make up for this) The passive is okay but passives don't really interest me in general. Losing Gate and the slow on the ultimate really hurts the way I play him though.
