Is it just me who's blind or is Ghost pretty much neglected in higher ELOs? Every time I watch a high ELO game I see people run Flash on guys like Dr. Mundo or Olaf, which is perfectly fine, but wouldn't they benefit far more from the MS increase (even more so after the Ghost buff)?

What's your opinion on the spell and why do you think so few people (if any) use it?

It's a slow process but Ghost is underestimated. Flash is more comfortable and more simple choice of summoner spell for many so they don't bother changing. Flash also often results in flashier plays. ghost}} is starting to become more popular on champions like [[graves, Viktor, Vladimir for example.

Great spell on a few characters but Flash fills a spot that Ghost can't.

People don't simply want to use it because they'd lose an instant reposition. Ghost is decent if you just passively mash them and they don't have that much CC. Otherwise Flash has better usages (dodge abilities, instantly get to their carries etc.).

My two cents.

ghost is definitely good but flash is necessary / more versatile in certain matchups.

for example it definitely is good on olaf or mundo, but depending on enemy jungle and your own lane matchup you may completely ruin your lane with one successful enemy gank since you dont have flash.
