Riot should take Katarina off the recommended list after the recent patch, with Kat becoming a lot more risky and harder to play(if her E+R or E is miss timed its a lot less forgiving).
She's still got a low skill cap, and her skills are fairly straightforward. She still pubstomps lower summoner levels.
The skill cap is lower, if anything, as they shifted her damage back to her ult (which the remake was supposed to make her less reliant on).
