Rumble, The Mechanized Menace
Flamespitter: Rumble torches the area in front of him with his flamethrower dealing damage to all units in a cone for several seconds. While in the “Danger Zone,” this spell deals additional damage.

Electro-Harpoon: Rumble launches a missile that deals magic damage and applies a stackable slow on the target. A second shot can be fired for no additional cost within several seconds. While in the “Danger Zone,” the damage and slow percentage is increased.
The Equalizer (Ultimate): Rumble calls down a line of rockets over the target location. Enemies in the scorched area take damage over time and are slowed.
Junkyard Titan (Passive): Rumble's abilities generate heat. When Rumble is above 50 heat, he is in the "Danger Zone," causing all his basic spells to have additional effects. When Rumble reaches 100 heat he overheats, silencing himself and causing his physical attacks to deal additional magic damage. Rumble loses heat over time.

anyone feel that Rumble is another Lee Sin/Karma? ._.
Nah, I feel he's somewhat better than them both, not amazing, but better than Karma and Lee Sin. I definitely think Lee is significantly worse than Karma, mostly because the fact that they gave him Energy made him soooo bad end-game. Karma just doesn't support hard enough imo.
The EZ buff is a bit too overpowered in a bit, I was playin hybrid build against an AD EZ, and I end up scoring 11-0-8 for the whole game, ( 261 ad, 561 ap ) The ult damage / scaling is a bit kinda too high tbh. 350/500/650 + .9 AP + 1 AD per 1 AD item you have in magic damage. I can even start off with a doran's ring and still get 3-4 dmg on Q ( .2 ap ratio ) slightly too strong. As for Xin, he got a bit op during mid game ( 80% atk spd for 5 secs is wdfspeed ) I'm not sure if his ult is bugged or something, it seems to deal ALOT more damage than before ( I smacked a kass that was 2 levels ahead of me like 60% hp bar at lv 11 ). Other than that, I'm ok with the patch ( GP's ult range is so crappy...-__-).
Rumble feels like a stupid character. I've never had a fondness for non-mana based casters, since they all end up being button mashing spam fests rather than the feeling that you actually have to conserve your resource/cooldowns.
I haven't actually been affected by the changes yet, so not much to say right now.
Rumble doesn't really fill any roles well. He's sort of like a jack of all trades but has an average grade of C+/B at everything.... That being said, a team with rumble needs the other 4 to play heroes that are really good at what they do and fill jungle/tank/carry and maybe support well. IF harpoon stunned after hitting twice, it may help out alot.
Lee Sin is sorta overshadowed as well by many other heroes. Who really needs someone who can jump in and kick someone back when you can jump in MUCH farther and kill the target with a CC as well as blocking one. If you go tanky DPS, why not go Renekton since you have a double jump, super aoe tankyness, super aoe lifesteal, and a stun?
Theres really alot of heroes that get overshadowed by others and in the end, just hardly ever played.
Although TreeEskimo has been doing really well with him ._. ....
