Nunu's ultimate has a conflicted purpose. If you wait to use it too long people might be more spread out, or you or critical teammates might already be dead. If you use it too soon enemies will have CC cooldowns ready to stop you, but it is ideal to use it on the most people possible.

I don't know what you're on about but as long as you keep the wall-haxes I'm happy.

Hey, we make mistakes and throw anti-patterns in all the time. we just try to do it less.
and sometimes you take on an anti-pattern to get something else valuable. It's not a hard rule.
