@Dusklicious I've heard it's still completely different from OB42 Torv, even if it's meant to make him a point tank again.

Return of OB42 Torvald (#BringBackTankvald)
I have seen multiple accounts of people being displeased at Torvald's current role as a "Frontline", which simply boils down to "spam Q on allies". I myself was very displeased when Torvald's rework was announced back in the Open Beta days.
Torvald upon release was unique. A close-quarter-combat Frontline with a large personal shield, a short AoE disarm, AND (most importantly) the ability to steal shields from enemies. He was fun.
Now? He's a mediocre champion with no mobility whose only job is to give other champions a shield (and most likely a damage buff).
I propose a total reversion of Torvald's kit to its original form in OB42, with the return of the original Gauntlet beam (currently used on Nullify, a weaker form of...), Runic Blast, and the longer Recharge with the ability to steal shields.
"But Cowser, what about the shieldbotting???" Some may ask. Simple.
Make a new Support Champion that gives shields.
