Valens post patch shield

Hello, after patch i’ve notice that Valen’s shield takes 2 seconds after cast to be placed and with the extended early cooldown this gives the enemy just the right amount of time to spawn an alchemist and destroy Rolling Rocks before the shield can kick in. Needles to say that missing shield in 4000+ trophies early on its almost a guaranteed lose. Is this intended?

Best regards

I sincerely hope it was.

Doesn’t seem to happen to me. Isn’t it net delay?

I doubt it but it could be. Is there a way to check for current ping?
