gypsy did you happen to send any of your champion ideas to the teemo pit where they could have their souls shattered and then rebuilt?

It's happened to me a few times as well and I'm not sure if it's intended or not. Whatever the case, it can already be cockblocked by minions, tanks, any cc, and easily sidestepping. It looks cool, but it's a sh!t ult. Even Vi's tiny Q knockback stops it, which makes no sense because you can move backwards while using it.

While you are looking at Lucian for bug, there is a bug with Pantheon's passive and Lucian's ult. If lucian's first bullet of his ult gets blocked by pantheon's passive, none of the other bullets will do any damage to pantheon. Effectively meaning pantheon's passive completely blocks Lucian's ult.

I think most of the people joking about true damage are doing it light-heartedly (I believe Scarizard was the one who coined "CertainlyTrueDamage"). CertainlyT's champion designs are some of the most distinctive in the game.

Any chance lucians ult can be made less interpretable, ala ez/lux. As it seems now if someone even sneezes on lucian his ult gets cancelled(silence, knockups, knockbacks, stuns, polymorphs, even fears cancels it)

We are not going to fix it for 3.11 because it requires re-writing some of our oldest, dustiest game code to account for animations but will hopefully have a fix in as soon as is possible. Note Skarner also "lies" about his facing when he is ulting (and maybe Caitlyn while moving from Yordle snap trap?), so we'll finally be able to fix that interaction as well.

AkA - We hate burden of knowledge, but we hate doing actual work even more.

why does reposition abilities like vayne's condemn without the stun stops his ult? he can move anyway during it, so why he stop casting it when he moved by the enemy team?

I have a feeling this statement is loaded with explosive intent.
