Alistar - Should be reworked
I have been playing LoL for awhile now and I have noticed something, Alistar is kind of under powered, while he has excellent champion control i.e his push back and his knock up. And has fairly good AP/Damage ratios. It's not enough to help him stand on his own, his niche is filled better by Cho'Gath. I am essentially asking that he be reworked simillar to how Ryze and Heimerdinger have been. I have suggestions.

Collossal Strength: is fine
Pulverize: Considering some other champs have similar abilities i.e Cho'Gath the cool down time is a tad long considering it doesnt add the slow or even have the range of Cho'Gath's, and has lower base damage. My suggestion is a lower cooldown 10 or 9 seconds, as opposed to the current 15. and it should scale with bonus AD instead of AP as it would synergize with his ult beter.
Headbutt: This move has good cooldown and damage, but once again I'd recommend bonus AD scaling and possibly lower base damage instead to better synergize with his ult.
Triumphant Roar: is fine
Unbreakable Will: I think it would be much more useful if the suggestions above were put into affect. Other than that is fine.

I think by making these changes you would have Alistar in a better situation to be more unique, aswell as just working better over all. And would give him his own niche as an AD tank.

Alistar is perfectly fine right now and doesn't need a rework or a buff. Though I would really like 305 base movespeed.

Maybe i am wrong, haha I never have a problem playing Alistar, it was more as a suggestion as I rarely see anyone else do well with him, other than suiciding turrets.

Alistar is kind of under powered
LoL, that's what everyone said of Irelia months ago, except for a select few pros who knew she was totally fine. Same story with Alistar.

Alistar is one of the most jokes and fun heroes you can play hahaha

Alistar really only needs a few tweaks, improved base move speed being one of them. The ONLY time I've ever had major problems with him is when games last 40+ minutes and everyone is getting everything to do anything... Although I'm fairly certain nearly all tanks have trouble if that point is reached, at least the ones that don't have a taunt.

Well honestly when I get into a match and see an Alistar on the other team I know I'm going to win, does that mean he's under powered.. maybe, but it likely means few people are playing him right. he is a higher difficulty champ after all.

Alistar seems to be fine to me. His damage to champs isn't as high as a dedicated DPS, but thats expected. He can still tear down a tower and his utility in team fights doesn't decrease at all.
