Ranking Ultimates

Hi guys/girls, I was thinking about champion ultimates (coll. 'ults'), I dismiss the notion that any ultimate is broken/useless, every champ's ult (except of course {{champion:126}}, {{champion:60}} etc. who don't have ults _per se _) can have a significant impact on a game. I categorise ults into three groups, they are as follow: **One Shot, One Kill**: These include the ults of champs like {{champion:86}}, {{champion:45}}, {{champion:122}} etc. They are described as; * Easy to land, * Usually net at least one kill (seriously if you manage to screw up Garen's ult you might want to start thinking about taking up knitting as a pass time), * These champs are usually stayed clear of when the cd status of their ults are unkown. **Utility** These include the ults of champs like {{champion:432}}, {{champion:412}}, {{champion:133}} etc. They are described as; * Easy to moderately easy to land, * They rarely net a kill in themselves but can become very influential late game, * They require special conditions to be used for greatest effect. * Can be used both offensively and defensively **One Shot, Multiple Kills** These include the ults of champs like {{champion:25}}, {{champion:80}}, {{champion:236}}, {{champion:245}} (probably the strongest ult in-game) etc. They can be described as; * Moderately difficult to very hard to land, * Require special conditions to be used for greatest effect but when used correctly can yield multiple kills, * Deal great amounts of damage and/or have numerous effects, * Can be used both offensively and defensively. In which category does your favourite ult fall? Which ults do you think require some scaling, e.g. maybe {{champion:19}}'s should deal more damage (be a one shot one kill out right) but be harder to land (skill shot maybe), or perhaps it should deal less damage but be easier to land like {{champion:245}}'s. Or still, maybe some ultimates deserve a bonus effect to make them slightly more ultimate and a little less "meh", in my mind {{champion:412}}'s ultimate is equal (if not weaker) to {{champion:45}}'s "e", similarly {{champion:86}}'s ult is basically a hyped up verion of {{champion:2}}'s "e", does the bonus damage really justify the cool down time? I'm looking forward to reading your thoughts, sorry for the long post.
