You start with a point in your R on level one, I wouldn't really call it "ultimate" :P

He is rather ...underwhelming. Cliche. Generic. Although it does seem slightly interesting,with the the prospect of many different different builds and versatility; not to mention those very nice ratios. However, it seemed as if Riot just created a mash / remix of Nidalee, Shyvanna and what not with twists on AA range and Spell range.

Well with this being the 100th champion and all, how creative can they really be with mechanics? Aesthetically, Jayce is really awesome and new (He's the only cool champion with a hammer, Poppy can gfto). Sure his kit is similar to Nidalee, and hell, kind of similar to Karma in a away; but he's still really cool. :D

But with hundreds of minds at your disposal, it should be expected of Riot to be able to come up with some other unique mechanics.

Well, the way I look at it. League of Legends is a free game. If you don't like the new champion, don't buy him. If you don't care if a champion is similar to another one, and just play them because they look cool (like me) it's a non issue. :p

However it would be nice to see a change, or maybe even a break from the Meta. It's not very pleasing, if the result is knowing almost every champion off by heart because of the various similarities that are gluing them together. It would be nice for something more (as said before) unique.

Jayce is new. He may be similar to Nidalee. But ultimately, he seems to be much more focused on switching his weapon stance, as they seem to mesh, and combos can be created by doing so. Nidalee on the other hand has two completely different stances for different purposes entirely.

Take this into account; Nidalee mostly uses her human form for ranged harass only, or her traps. The cat form is the kill form. These stances are so different and independent from each other.

Jayce on the other hand, benefits greatly from "form dancing", if you will. His abilities in either stance could help him when he switches, like do Acceleration Gate, Shock Blast, then swap real fast and run through to chase someone.

Pretty badass and new if you ask me.
