Ok I'm kinda tired and just wanna QQ (kinda, not really) about the Ult buff.

I appreciate the buff, but I think your going a somewhat wrong direction with this. The problem is it's usability, any tank can block the shot for the squishy, and that's fine as that was the intentional plan.

But, an Ultimate should never make you feel like it was a dumb idea to use it, and when I fire my 700dmg ult at a squishy, and it's blocked by a tank who ends up taking only 200 dmg, I feel like I wasted my time and I feel like I did something wrong, this isn't fun for me, or for anyone else playing Caitlyn. Why should using a damage dealing ultimate make someone feel like their doing something wrong for dealing damage? (the 3 seconds of channel time can be better spent 95% of the time).

I mean, how is the issue not clear?
She has a channel time, yet does less damage than:
Karthus
Lux
(just to name a few)
Why are those ez mode ultis doing more dmg than an ulti thts harder to use?

Now I understand the issue with buffing damage:
"If it's buffed enough to hurt tanks, then it will be overkill to squishies"

Then fix it differently:
-make it do true damage to blocker
-make it do a percent of health
-make it ignore armor of the blocker
-make it pierce, doing damage to squishy no matter what, but blocking reduces it.

Idk, just some ideas, but really, I don't understand why every champ has a better Ult than her.

I mean, lets take Irelia, who everyone said was UP (not me tho, shes awesome)
Her ult:
1) no channel time
2) you can auto attack while doing it
3) heals you
4) always hits what you want it to

Now if thats the ult of a supposed "UP" champ, then whats Caitlyns?

I've said before that I think her ultimate should do damage to the intercepting champion equal to what it would have dealt to the target.

The easy way is to just have it deal true damage = to the damage it would have dealt otherwise.
