Agreed, get rid of flash. This spell alone makes the metagame is so stale. Everyone gets a get out of jail free card every ~5 minutes. The early game in LoL is so boring because of this.
DotA has a lot more depth to it for this reason alone. Heroes are so generic in LoL (usually only 1 slow/stun, 1 AoE farming ability, etc.). Nobody can do anything on their own until late game. Someone has to truly screw up to die in the early game - it's easy-mode. Generic heroes + flash makes for boring "afkfarm for 30 minutes, then win" games.
But 5 minutes is pretty long. And at what elo are you playing at where every gank fails because of flash?
A familiar note is produced. It's the note Desolation plays to keep its instrument in tune
Removing flash would be such a huge blow to a lot of AP carries, as they tend to be the least mobile of the roles. Champs like Morgana, Cassiopeia, Galio, Annie, etc are so reliant on their ults that any decent team will split up/run if they see a champ with such an AoE ult headed their way, so to fix that, you have the Flash + Ult combo that makes the ult more of a surprise. It's easy to know that a Galio coming toward your team is likely to try to ult and it's incredibly difficult to land it without that flash. It's not IMPOSSIBLE, but it would make him a lot harder to play, so why bother when a champ like Katarina can jump into a team fight and AoE ult the enemy to death more easily?
