Would it be possible to reduce cho'gaths death penalty as in feast not completely resetting. If you think a penalty has to apply maybe change it that the cho'gath player loses 2-4 feast buffs at most.

I know as a cho'gath you aren't supposed to die. However it does rarely occur especially in massive team fights. It results in you having something like 18%-33% less survivability and ~6 minutes till you will have the same survivability again. Also, I know about guardian angel preventing the loss of feast.

Cho'gath is arleady a very powerful hero amassing loads of health with ease.

One of the best counters to this is to finally kill him and weaken him and not allow him to grow large again.

Your suggestion removes this counter, would make him too OP.

Just run around eating random minions till ur at size again

The question then becomes,
Is this a fun mechanic to have in the game for a champion?

Remember, it's beta.

double the health gain, halve the number of stacks! srsly 6 minutes is longer than it takes to charge a bloodthirster... and without feast, you've got low HP unless you're buyin HP items

This has always been an issue. I wish they could just get Cho'gath right.

6 min.?! Geez I don't take that long with Feast after all Not only can you chew up Minions and Champs you can also chew up Creeps
Those Wraith Creeps and the Dogs are Snack Cakes to Cho'gath if he has full feast potential
If not...Why didn't you max it?

cooldown of 6*feast without getting cooldown reduction from items and only from masteries. However it could be shortened to 4 minutes and 12 seconds if you aim for the cooldown cap.

This is something we'll look to improve; a task is in the backlog.

Thanks for the feedback.
