more ult cooldown refresh -_- way to go riot




As a Kat main, since I first started (with regular breaks in between to round out my abilities). I must let you know that voracity has always worked this way bro, triple kill = another death lotus, single kill = shunpo again... What does have me intrigued is giving giving Q, akalis Q, along with max bounces off the bat... then giving W an aoe... and making E always have old W attached... I know you're making her better for high ranked games... but what about my normal games? I break them with her already... when the endless waves of peeps come QQing are you gonna nerf her into the ground? Cuz I assure you .... every 20 min.. they are coming to complain in mobs of 5...

This definitely less drastic than could have been the case. Kat's problem was that she was ult dependent in a teamfight on and ult that was easily stopped. Rather than completely overhauling her Ult they just made her less ult dependent. Reasonable choice. I think she really got hurt by the change to her passive though. Now you can't Shunpo in, get the kill then escape with it again. That will be a pretty big change.

seriously riot, i'm ok with you buffing her slightly, but her lane sustain is too dang high, PLEASE give her a mana bar, every other AP carry in the game has one, its not right that she doesn't have a resource to have to worry about.

I'm intrigued. The heal debuff being on the ultimate seems odd. I'm surprised they didn't give her CC on her new W to be honest. I'm happy they didn't but surprised nonetheless

it's called being a melee in the middle. She's also hybrid so it's not like you only have to worry about 1 source of damage. + she has no cc? You have to play her smart. She's not just a smash face into the keyboard like ryze or zyra XD
