Playing Kat at a high level requires quite a bit of skill was my entire point, it was this chinchilla fellow who simply refuted my post without reading and on no basis and claimed I had no knowledge of Katarina while I clearly do. His implications that ulting only when given the opportunity are moot as there are 2 main things to be gained from ulting after your combo. The first is that, assuming you don't get a kill or assist with your initial combo, you allot more cooldown time to be reset from Death Lotus allowing you to use it again sooner. The second is that, as I demonstrated, it deals more damage than your other abilities combined and the more damage dealt, the faster enemy champions die therefore the faster Katarina procs her passive.
This is simply defending my initial statements that Kat's new kit fits the current meta whilst being high risk, high reward and requires a bit of skill and knowledge to be competitive against a skilled pool of players.
So what you're saying is that you use her ultimate when you go in and you didn't have enough damage to proc your passive (because you miscalculated)? So you're using it for that last couple ticks of damage because you have the opportunity?
Sure, but if you're building Katarina squishy like most people do, you should be cancelling that ultimate the moment you get a kill or assist. Katarina needs to keep moving and jumping around. If you allow yourself to be focused, you'll be focused, because everyone knows how squishy you're building.
Unless you know without a doubt that you'll get your ultimate off, you shouldn't even use it. It just screams "come stun and kill me while I stay still."
