Riot, can we talk about Today's Kat vs Last Year's Kat?

Yeah, you're right. I'm tired, memories are a bit screwy.


Playing her pre rework, that's always where I felt the weakest. Now it feels like they cut off 1 sec of her ult, moved it to her w, and spread her old w out.

Seems like a recipe for a strong champ to me. Imagine if they took garens ult. reduced the damage by 1/3 and threw him an aoe nuke on his w. Not the best analogy but appropriate I think.Essentially makes your early game stronger and doesn't really reduce your overall damage.

Yeah, I can see that. The problem is the self-utility associated with it, and the fact that it's actually pretty powerful AoE.

But again, Kat still deals less overall damage rework than prework.

Depends. I keep hammering her Sinister Steel because I believe it is the problem through-and-through. AoE is not to be underestimed.

I'll admit, I did originally like the idea of Sinister Steel. Not after it came out, though.

When I saw it I was like, "oh that's cool, that will be a nice change from her current W and will give her some more guaranteed damage." Then the patch notes came out and Riot was like, "Do you mind if we nerf literally every other aspect of her to give her this completely average spell that barely fits her kit?" We wanted a reworked W, not a reworked champion.

Tried to play Triple Pen today. It was going well until a jungle Panth started camping me with a Kha. I really didn't want to build Sunfire and Warmogs, but I ended up having to to survive the focus and win.

Why build ap when you have **** scaling and you're going to get your base damage resets off from surviving so long anyway? Too bad there's no true assassin in the game anymore except maybe fizz.
