I know it's not just Alistar, as many champions have similar bugs that they are fixing slowly. The reason I have such an issue with this particular bug is because it's the only bug that's been in the game since BETA, that has consistently ruined games for me. I'm simply sick of this one and I want it fixed. I don't care how.

A lot of people don't notice the amount of damage that it does because a lot of people don't max Headbutt and don't see more than 90 damage all the way up until level 14. It's negligible and people don't notice. However, I've been testing a build that maxes Headbutt and I used to play him that way anyway, and I'm sick and tired of this bug because it's preventing my build from being a legitimate possibility in a lot of cases.

This bug is so annoying. Happens a lot when trying to headbutt through terrain; like a 50/50 chance it seems.

Playing Alistar since the end of 2009.



It's caused by right clicking a lot.

If you right click after you've casted it and are in transit to the enemy, it cancels.

At least in my experience.

Easy to replicate, try it in a custom game.

Oh I was agreeing with you, it baffles me how long it takes for Riot to address bugs. It baffles me that every patch for the last almost Two Years now, there are MAJOR bug fixes and gameplay changes without improvement or addition to the current mechanics (save for the unneccessary monthly hero release), including the basics such as Replays, Pause, Getting Gold from your leavers and being able to loot their items, etc. etc.

I don't have a problem with Alistar's personally because I don't use him, so I was using Gragas as an example because he is one of my favorite heroes, and little issues like this are actually game-breaking situationally.

The problem is caused when they are out of range of the spell when Alistar connects. I assume the spell is supposed to send Alistar forward and sends the target back when he connects. Assuming that the range is capped, Alistar gets leashed at a certain point and the headbutt never connects.

If it was a skillshot, I would be OK with this. Since it's not, it's FVCKING STUPID.

I'm pretty positive that this is caused by more than one thing. Sometimes it will simply do nothing. Sometimes you WILL Headbutt them away, but the damage won't occur. Sometimes it will just go on CD. I've heard multiple theories but still nothing from Riot about if they're even working on fixing it.
