That 30% is really significant, you'd either have to increase the channel time further to allow for the 30% to build up at the current rate, or you'd have to increase the rate at which the damage builds up.
Nunu's ult is supposed to be an all-or-nothing high-risk high-reward nuke that either ruins everyone's positioning, absorbs a disable, or kills everyone.
It does its jobs, it doesn't need a change.
Well currently the worst case and best case are a bit imbalanced. The best-case dmg may be too high especially considering the ap-ratio, the aoe and the additional debuffs. The worst case however is doing like 10 dmg and having it go on cooldown accomplishing nothing.
Currently it is not too rare for a team to have access to like 8 disables. Soaking up one of them accomplishes not much especially since many are aoe anyway so it is almost impossible to get off a full ult and even then hitting more than 2 people is, due to the mobility-creep, extremely rare and usually only happens if the enemy team screws up (hard).
So yea to achieve the best case you need the enemy team to:
a) not use a single cc on you, neither accidently nor intentionally
b) not move out of your ult with one of their dashes, flashes or whatever
c) group up hard to begin with
You also have to position yourself well and wait for the enemy team to use their aoe-cc so they don't "accidently" cc you.
I wouldn't mind it if his ult-dmg or ratio got reduced somewhat if they removed the 30% penalty.
Edit: Oh boy two reds already.
The reasoning behind this is to encourage and reward players to get a full channel off.
But wouldnt you agree that this is a little bit outdated seeing as champions like Kennen, Morgana, Nautilus, Blitzcrank, Amumu or Leona cancel the ult without even specifically aiming for it? The channeltime of 3 seconds feels extremely long. Can't we adjust the worst-case and best-case scenario to flatten the curve a little (just a little, I wouldnt want to take away the massive FK YEA feel when you hit 5 people with a full ult) to adjust to the current state of the game? Nunu's ult is like 2 years old after all.
btw: In a txt file in the gamefiles (forgot which one) his ult-description consists of "Oponn's pull and Oponn's push". Who was the guy who made this reference and why is he so awesome?
For those who don't know, it's a reference to A Tale of the Malazan Book of the Fallen, a fantasy series that is way better than Game of Thrones.
