Imagine this scenario:
You are Kayn.
You need 1 more orb, just a single orb, to get your transformation.
Let's say that you want Darkin form in this game.
So, you just need to hit a melee champion once more in order to transform.
Easy, gank that Darius top, get your orb, and you're done with it.
But now, let's say that your bot is in dire need of help.
So you're forced to gank bot instead, get a blue orb, and then you have to wait 4 min to get the transformation that you want.
My question is, why no be able to keep gathering orbs of the other form, which would now just reduce the wait time for your transformation?
Is it a balance issue?
Because right now it just feels like punishment for doing what is needed to be done.
