Yes, I know it's old news, but it's still not fixed.
Champions like Nautilus and Udyr are still auto-attacking malzahar to interrupt his ult.

I understand if it was Annie shooting a stunned fireball in mid-air as I begin to ult; that makes sense. But not melee.

Malzahar's ult is a SUPPRESSION. Melee champions should not be able to interrupt that with an auto-attack.

The stun either needs to prevent Malzahar from ulting, or the target's auto-attack needs to be cancelled. There is no reason for an Udyr to be able to Bear stance stun his way out of Malzahar's ult.

For clarity: The target of the suppression should not be able to use an ability or auto attack to interrupt the suppression. If Malzahar ults a fiddlesticks, and then Udyr hits Malzahar, that makes sense. If Malzahar ults Udyr, and Udyr hits Malzahar, that doesn't make sense.

tl;dr Suppression not working as intended, make suppression applied as soon as the cooldown is used.

Edit: Nautilus is fixed, but as of Dec 21, Riven's broken wings knockback is still managing to break Malzahar's ult, when Riven is the target of Malzahar's ult. Riven should not be able to cast a spell while suppressed. Since she still casts it, she isn't suppressed. Since she isn't suppressed, Malzahar didn't manage to get his ult off. So WHY does it go on cooldown when it is broken in this fashion? This event happened 3 times in the course of my last game. Udyr is also a repeat offender. Suppression either needs to be applied sooner and stop their action, or, if their action goes through, he should still have the CD. The target of a suppression should not be able to free himself with cc unless it's delayed CC like Zyra's, or GP's oranges.

Edit 2:

Other examples would include a Warwick jumping to a Singed or Udyr with his ult, and them flinging or bear-stance stunning him, which is also absolutely absurd.
This is less of an issue about Malzahar, and more about suppression as a mechanic. Malzahar just happens to be the one most frequently suffering from the way suppression currently works.


Edit 4: Most recently, I played against a Malzahar as Fiddlesticks in an ARAM, and while he was ulting me, I managed to break his ult with my fear. This does not have a travel time, obviously, and I know that I broke an ult already in progress because I took the first tick of damage from nether grasp. This is a problem.


Edit 3: Don't be one of these people. Don't post if you don't know what a suppression is.

If his autoattack and your ult go off at the same time, it's going to get canceled just like with any channeled spell. If you think Malz is bad, imagine what Galio must feel like. At least Malz only gets his ult canceled if you don't have the reaction speed to catch them before they get in your face.

I don't think malzahar is bad.

I think that suppression stops champions from attacking.

If udyr really was suppressed, he wouldn't be able to attack. No stun. Full ult.

If udyr is not suppressed yet, my ult has not gone off. Stun. Then full ult.

He is not getting suppressed if he's interrupting Malzahar's ult with an auto-attack.

Malzahar's ult has 0 channel time before it comes out. It's not like Morgana's where you can miss it in that .5 channel before damage. Malzahar's suppression is the instant you click them. And then it channels for damage.

Also, a taunt is pretty much the opposite of a suppression, since they are SUPPOSED to attack you.

I've had this happen so many times, its so frustrating. The best is landing E > W > R on like a singed or something and having them go lolno and flipping you anyway.

It's easy to do, yes. But when twice in the same game I dump all my abilities into Udyr, and then ult, and then press no keys, he makes a bear sound, and I get the stun swirls above my head, I'm pretty sure I didn't cancel it.

It's a turn speed problem I'm pretty sure.

The time it takes for Malzahar to turn around sometimes makes him cast before he's perfectly in line, but the supression doesn't go through until he is.

Not really sure what you mean by this.
