He's a good close-range fighter with terrible mobility, an important aspect of mid-late game. And the nerf to his ult takes away some of his mid-late game power.

Is this just a "Cater to the lesser skilled playerbase" nerf, or did I miss some period of time when he actually became a flavor of the week champ recently?

I think the intention of his ult was to jump from person to person in a single fight. What ends up with the refresh is that a Darius executes one person, walks into another person half a minute later and executes that guy as well.

It is a major nerf, unless they can compensate in other areas of his kit. Darius is ult dependent and now its forced to go on CD.

Oh no! His ult goes on cooldown LIKE EVERY OTHER CHAMPION IN THE GAME.

Boo hoo cry me a freaking a river.

Its kinda telling when the belief about Darius is that he is strong when his ult is up but highly vulnerable when its down (I know this is true for many champs but you guys make it out to almost seem like Darius is binary)

Honestly there is no good reason for such a strong true damage nuke to have such a high up time like Darius' (especially when there is so little counter play to it)

Doesn't matter if his ult was unique before. He was balanced, but a good noobstomper.

Cry more, he's not going to stop stomping you after this nerf.
