When will Eyeburn make a thread that isn't riddled with QQ?

The world may never know.

Second, we wanted to make sure Darius's ult did not kill squishy ranged ADs and mages from full with low bleed stacks. When the ult was physical, the damage had to be so high to make it feel good against, say Renekton, that it was abusive versus Caitlyn. Notice that in the example you gave, Darius's lvl 3 Noxian Guillotine at max stacks with 60 bonus AD would be doing something like 300 physical damage to a lvl 18 Renekton with a Randuins and an Aegis.
Only stupid thing I think about the ULTI is that it resets. *ENEMY PENTA KILL* Yea me no like.

Why would a Darius only have 60 AD at level 16 if he's a champion that's supposed to be offensive first?

Making it deal true damage just seems like an awful lot of hand holding for the player.

I love how so many people fail to site his ultra short range.


But then again the average player is more than happy to let master yi walk right up to them and chop their legs off at the knee.

Very good reasoning and design, Go Riot. +1

Seems like there should be some other champs who need true damage ults if that is the idea.

It's funny because you're QQ about QQ which means you're no better than I am (possibly much worse), you feel the need to post off topic in one of my threads thereby bumping it while contributing nothing, and you're advertising all of this to the whole forum.

Thaaaaaaaaaaanks.
