so from what I get, because fizz and kassadin are OP, brand should be too?

That about right?

I wish that in such situations Brands ult would behave like Ryzes Spell Flux.
Either this, or the damage should be more front loaded with consecutive bounces to the same champion doing reduced damage.

Zombie Brand. Barring that, I'm at a loss.

Disagree. Numbers may look that way, and in a perfect world where all 5 champions stand still and you are able to spread E to all 5 and then ult it might be true. But Brand's ult is pretty lackluster.

I love playing Brand, but his ultimate makes me feel awful almost every time I use it. It either bounces to nothing, or to 3 minions, or hits the tank 3 times. If the behavior of his ultimate alone was fixed, he would do enough raw damage to compete with a lot of utility mages and any assassin who has long casting animations.
