A 3 second slow field with a 2 second cooldown + ability cooldown, combined with his Q.

You're just not getting away, ever, not even Merc treads can save you. Either you 1v1 him and win or die.

Teamfights start on his terms now, once he ulties in, you can't disengage even if you want to, the whole team is pretty much permaslowed. Better blow ALL your flashes and dashes.

Armor increases his damage

More mana for more spells

Cooldown reduction

Sheen proc

Its the item of your dreams if you're a Malphite

Order now while supplies last.

I'd rather just 1v5 and kill the entire enemy team before they can react.

I think Riot screwed up big time by releasing this many items into the game at once.

a 2 second cooldown for a 3 second effect is just silly. I feel like it was a mistake. if it had a 1 second effect with a 2 second cool-down it would still be good.

Compare it to the Rylais.

Meanwhile, Malphite was also nerfed because all armor items cost more for slightly less armor, so it balances out.

Have you seen this item on Hecarim? It's a never-ending nightmare for everyone to live with. Plus the ice matches his theme.

Throw on a Wraith Collar + Reaper skin and you have Death riding a horse to collect your dues.

It's certainly powerful, and maybe "breaking"... but really all it breaks is the meta, not the game. You're a carry and the enemy team has Malphite? Too bad, your team shouldn't have relied so heavily on a carry that could be shut down by Malphite. I'd like to see games without an AD carry for once :P.

Or you just deal with Malphite the same way you always deal with Malphite: don't let him engage on his terms. Blitz-grab him when he's out of position; throw down a wall behind him so his teammates can't join the fight; counter with mumu; or just keep poking at him from a distance (Jayce/Xerath/Kog comes to mind). There are ways of dealing with him, be creative.
