We have to overpower it to make it 'good' because its possible that as a tool, it will completely fail GP.
GP's ult isn't that bad. It's randomized, and most of the time, people are able to escape with minimal or no damage.

i cant agree with everything tough. Sometimes figuring out how to use a complicated skill and using it to its full potential is fun. And complicated skills tend to have many uses and not just 1.

That speccing stun on a warrior is a great example. Its true that you wont gain rage while the enemy is stunned but you can stun him when he uses a strong skill that would kill you. And you can give yourself a moment to recuperate and maybe get a heal or two.

The way you describe skills would make the game boring if only skills like that would be implemented. What good is a game where all skills are just click to target and does Y dmg and inflicts X effect. Where X is slow, stun, snare and Y dmg from 1-400(ap/ad)

I guess you have played dota... and if you landed a great ship with general proudmore youll know. Because the enemy team will just disintigrate while yours will barely have a scratch.

You can use that skills as initiation, as a dmg migitation skill while running away, as a aoe nuke to save your ally. But your ''fun'' skills can only be used as snare, stun , root, nuke.

Is Anivia OP still?
Because I used her and I think she could use a few more small buffs

We want at least one ugly female.

A fat opera singer or something. Give her a small dog called Fifi, too.
