Proposal to fix Poppy

So as I'm sure we're all aware of by this Point, Poppy's ult is possibly one of the most broken ultimates in the game. She's been excused up until this point because she was an early champion and Riot didn't have the know-how they do now.

So, how do we fix this without changing her ult? Simple.

With the recent rise of importance on dmg reduction (Braum, Maokai, and Alistar), we change invulnerability to 50% dmg reduction from non-ulted sources. Then to make the ignoring abilities toned down, give her something like 30-50% tenacity with the ultimate activated.

With these changes, the core mechanics of the ultimate are still there, but they're not as extreme. Thoughts?

so you can't figure out how to counter play it so you are begging for riot to do something about a champ despite the champ being nerfed into the ground already.

Yea, let us know how we can win your lane for you in any other way too

You see Poppy in a single LCS game since it's existence and you think a champ who's considered very weak by all needs a nerf?

The better change would be to make is so Poppy can't damage anyone but her target either. Her ult is supposed to be this big "I'm calling you out and we are going to fight" moment. Not a "herp I don't take damage anymore" thing.

Poppy is a mind game. People get hit by her ult and immediately run away, leaving her to just decimate the enemy team. The person she ults just needs to trade some damage and back off and just kite it out AND STAY AWAY FROM WALLS. It really isn't hard.

So 20% less dmg reduction and a tenacity boost is a sh*t-tier version of Alistar's ult? Don't think so. Alistar doesn't get tenacity, he just removes all cc on him upon activation, but can still be held down.

Straight from her wiki page: ACTIVE: Poppy focuses intently on a single enemy champion, dealing amplified damage to them, and becoming immune to all damage and abilities from enemies other than her target.

Unless she ults the support and the support has significant cc, not possible. Even then, there's going to surely be someone on the team with none of it, like in the game where she was against Mundo and could just ult him and be unable to be stopped.

......Sorry, but what are you smoking? Poppy is the Tristana of fighters. She has a **** early game but late game is the Hulk. And I've been on the receiving end of a Poppy before, this wasn't the first time I've seen her.

Worse off it was a position 5 (aka Support) Poppy. Meaning she gets the least farm of the whole team, and 30 mins in she was dealing massive damage and destroying our adc after ulting our support Nami.

Facing Poppy is not fun. Unless you can end the game early, the Poppy stinks, or she gets stomped in lane, you're going to have a bad time.

The idea behind this proposal is to give her an ult that's similar to what she has now but isn't OP so that she can be properly adjusted and put into a good position that isn't just a trump card pick.
