@Riot: Why did you revert Kat to being overdependent on her ultimate?

I thought that when you gave her a remake, one of the goals was to make her no longer so reliant on Death Lotus. Now she's back to what she used to be?

Where's the consistency in that?

Are you going to admit at some point that you have no freaking clue how to make Kat strong? Or was your plan to NEVER make her strong?

Food for thought!
Swing-and-a-miss.

You just dodged the question entirely, Pwyff. Making Katarina's ultimate stronger is just aggravating the problem: you're making Kat a one-trick-pony again.

Buff something else about Kat, or just admit faulty design on your part.

Most champs only get 1 ability that resets on kills/assists, let alone all of her abilities. Her kit is inherently broken cuz of this and will either be to strong or to week with no middle ground really

And that requires her to have poor ability to actually land the kills in the first place?

Dumb logic is dumb.

Against opponents who won't use that stun for ANYTHING except that Death Lotus?

I like the information, but... you didn't really address the OP's complaint :/

You just totally answered in a way that makes the OP right. You don't even answer his question.
