Reading this thread... maybe I should go back and revisit PvE Instances and Raids... Champs Dual must be god-mode "I'm-a-champ-in-redline-and-I'm-soloing-everything" in PvE based on this argument.
Admittedly.. I only ever run redline on a big ST boss for PvE.. Yellowline is way more effective through 99% of every instance out there.
If you're running the instance with an even moderately competent group, you're going to demolish everything in the instance anyways.. regardless if there's a champ in redline.
In a PvMP GvG or RvR, if your target isn't dead in 10 seconds.. it's time to move on to a different one.. leaving the stacking debuffs behind and the creep will have 2 rows of fungal spores on it by then, making it indestructable.
I'm sure (given the fact I was QQ'ed for using Fight On and lost against a reaver who used impale last time I ventured into the circle) that CD is probably a reason for you to get a KoS label in the 1V1's these days so champs who live for 1v1's probably don't use it.
I've never thought of using it to run away from a fight. Usually by the time I realize it's time to go, I have (and probably any other champ who has a basic understanding of their skills) probably already blew CD during the fight and it's on cooldown.
