Well, she's not worthless now if the enemy has a stun because she can actually do other stuff I think that alone has tons of value for Katarina.


With increased cooldown on Shunpo, that other stuff will mostly involve building like a bruiser to spam more W while you run between the enemies.

Sure, it's a step up from the run between enemies and AA bad and/or AD Katarinas did before, but It would be a step back in terms of being interesting or unique.

I mean, by the sound of it, you have lower ratios on a higher cooldown... and a low-cooldown AoE skill on W...
No, that totally dosen't sound like all the other bruisers that were recently released... Not a single **** bit...

As a long time Katarina player I believe the remake she has is a long time coming and i totally get where they are coming from on the remake.

Good Kat players will know that good opponents will surely escape her ult long before it finishes it's channel or they will have inturrupted it and made kat totally useless.

nerfing her ult channel makes sense because it allowed them to buff her in other areas that will improve her early game lane sustain. Before it was really tough to reliably farm minions and keep your lane pushed you had to rely totally on harrassment that would put you in danger just to stay on top of the early game. giving her a movement speed buff and an area effect attack for her w gives smart players should give a slight edge and advantage to get her away from bad situations.

for all those complaining about her ad builds katarina should never be built pure ad with magic pen. It is overall grossly inferior to AP builds and relies on inconsistent snowballing items to be viable.

overall I can't wait to try the remake I think it will be exactly what kat needs

you guys have essentially taken a hero that requires skill and timing and removed the entire element from playing her. you have opened her up to a whole new section of players who were previously bad with her cause they had no timing, and made her ridiculously op for players who do have timing. good job.
