They are increasing combat blink to 1000 gold which is a good start but I still dont feel it will be enough. I had a joust match that lasted almost 40 minutes today because we all had blink. Everyone was blinking around the map, Ah Puch here, Anhur there, Xing over there. It was more annoying than fun because the game was focused around trying to bait blinks and catching up to the other team.
1) They need to either get rid of it all together.
2) Make it a relic with long CD
3) Make staggered increase in costs that go up by 500 gold per use.
4) Or make it so you can only purchase 1 or 2 a game to make it more of a tactical item than an every time purchase.
1000 gold will not make much difference. This is certainly one of the worse additions to season 4.
