I was playing AP Cho'Gath once. I had a Feast that dealt, in theory, 1073 true, unmitigated damage. I bit an Ezreal at half health. He lived, despite being around 900 health. He died, and I asked him to look at his death breakdown. I dealt ~700 damage.
What the ****. I abandoned playing Cho'gath to avoid this strange bug from robbing me. Has anyone else encountered this? Is it too op to have an ult with over 1000 true damage on a character with great ap ratios and good survivability?

I don't care about my rep, but you can +rep if you want to.

I'm trying to figure out how in god's name you managed to catch up to an Ezreal with such short range on that Ult.

On topic, I honestly don't know. He is still a good champion.

The Feast AP bonus for Feasting minions + Base champion Feast damage. I don't know why that happened. If you were playing AP Cho, wouldn't your Q and W be enough to insta burst him? :P

Dunno, but i love the champ. And no, he is not OP. I've wrecked with, been wrecked by, been wrecked as, and just plain wrecked Cho'Gath's. Really its a combo of situation and player. What IS hilarious, tho, is being chased by the entire enemy team from their base to yours, getting hit the entire way, and still having half health when you get back to the base.

His apparent slow move speed when he's huge taunts me.

When I read the title of the thread, I thought
"Bloody nothing" in response. However, to respond
to your post... It could be, that there's a hidden
passive in the game, that denies OP killing of Ezreal,
from creatures like Cho. Since, if Ezreal, the Prodigal
Explorer could be killed so easily by mere beasts, well...
He wouldn't be so prodigal would he. In short, you can't
kill the Protagonist that easily, he has to survive the first
encounter, so that he may die later, when enough emotional
energy has been invested in him by the audience.

It's like when Zilean and Volibear are on a map together, an effect box comes up that says "armored bear hater".

Scary giant Cho with Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed, Ghost, Surge and a Lulu ult on him.

Aww, I'm creating a new Cho'Gath guide (WATCH OUT FOR THAT ;D) and I put as an example:

If you wanna Feast on the enemy Ezreal...

LOL! That's probably it.

In reality though, it sounds like it may be an actual bug. Someone should test this to see if Cho's ult has the wrong scaling or if it'd being mitigated by armor or MR. I don't see how it could be less then your calculated value (assuming it's true damage like it's supposed to be) unless your calculations were off.
Thanks to Fatelblade for the sig!
