I think knockup is a fine thing to have in the game. Suppression is a harder question. Malzahar / Warwick / Urgot would probably need some degree of changes to survive in a world without suppression. They're all likely candidates to receive some changes at some point. My guess is WW/Urgot are headed for Sion level reworks *eventually* (definitely not any time soon) and Malzahar may get some light work done as part of the immobile mage update that Roster team is working on.
The answer hasn’t got any rewards yet.
