It'll make it easier to dodge than it was pre-nerf, but itll still be more difficult than it is now. The biggest thing is that the Xerath player won't have to aim it any differently than before. It's just that the enemy has an extra 0.25 seconds to react and use a movement ability, as opposed to having 0.5s to walk right out.


.25 fall time
.638 fall time
.5 fall time

the new diffrence will be .25 from the original, but the current is only a diffrence of .388, not .5

You make it sound like the time to dodge is getting cut by 50%, when it really is getting cut by ~21%.

Edit: Red has 2 diffrent fall times for live, .625 fall time would make the drop to .5 be a cut of 20%.

Good players will need to use Flash and good reflexes instead of... well, walking to counter Xerath's ult and he gets to keep his recent buff to compensate. And his ult now will look right with the timing issues fixed from the original design..

A great day my friends!

What? It sounds like you don't understand what the changes are:

Previous:
Damage-time: 0.5s (i.e., the tolerance for the Xerath player)
Dodge-time: 0.25s (i.e., the tolerance for the person dodging Xerath's ult)

Currently:
Damage-time: 0.875s
Dodge-time: 0.5s

Future:
Damage-time: 0.5s
Dodge-time: 0.5s


This makes Xerath's ult significantly more forgiving for the Xerath player, while giving the enemy some extra time to dodge. A good Xerath player should still be able to hit most of their ults.
