Just a question, the recent CD increase to stalk and now the -MS. Was just curious at how much of a nerf it is, can't test it atm sadly.

It's a fairly significant one, makes him noticeably easier to gank.
This nerf was really great, it's not that he can't use stalk to escape, because he can use stalk to find a hiding place.
not much of a difference, was a lil bit annoying but by far not that bad.
the increase of stalk cd was more worse.
Incredibly hard nerf, completely unplayable in his current capacity.
dang another patch. stupid work hours.
wow pretty hard nerf though.
you can actually be caught now
you take away alot of his early game with stalk though, and late game its nice to be able to move around the map at a decent speed/catch people in ganks. I think this nerf will make him a less desirable carry overall in high level play because his primary skill for early game really isnt as strong as it could be. He might be ok in a dual lane with babysit but that kinda defeats one of his advantages of being able to contribute alot early as a ganker.
He was overpowered before. It was the fact that he could dominate early-mid-late games. All of them. Now He has a worse but not terrible early game (You still have an AoE magic damage stun + its not like they nerfed the damage on this ability, so really you should deal... almost as much damage, only now you have to worry about what your doing. Using Stalk is now an option not a necessity.
and if your having trouble escaping with new stalk
heres a tip, dont be so obvious
aka running through people
I played against a Madman the other day and man... It was so easy to get away from him, he's slowed to a crawl after his stalk so you can just slowly walk away like you're calmly viewing the scenery.
poor madman, squished by the classical nerf hammer, but srsly though, I think the nerf was alright, I mean no one should be stupid enough to run just straight the path when his getting chased, if your smart enough, look for crooks and corners you can hide in or try going another way when chased.
