Nunu secretly ridiculously good?

Played a 3v3 earlier where some guy went Nunu. He got fed pretty badly early on as our entire team did poorly in the beginning. Eventually, we began to catch up and the match turned in our favor. Eventually, lategame comes and our team has way more cs due to them camping their base because they are worried about us invading and destroying their nexus. We farmed while they were stuck inside their base defending. Even at level 18 as Kayle with maxed items Nunu would use his ult and pretty much 1 shot me. Unless I dodged, used Mooglet's active or used my ult. Needless to say, 1 hitting with a aoe ult that lasts for a long time is pretty insane. Is Nunu just secretly really good and nobody has figured it out yet or what? We won eventually, but we had to bait the Nunu into using his ult at the wrong time in order to even stand a chance. It seems strange that Nunu gets little attention, but yet he has a ult that can 1 hit level 18 characters with maxed inventory. Is Nunu secretly a good champ?

Don't feed anyone early in 3's or they will be strong....

And no, he isn't secretly ridiculously good.

Yeah, but the feeding wasn't the problem. We caught up and eventually got ahead in gold and items. Yet, still at very late game with maxed inventory, max level etc. Nunu 1 shotted me with his ult.

You let them sit in base? That's the problem.

The easiest way to counter Nunu is... wait for it... WAIT FOR IT...

Magic resistance.

Interrupts are good but just because you're a level 18 Kayle doesn't mean you get to survive anything. If you aren't building MR then yeah Nunu full channel ult will probably destroy you. Since he literally has to sit there and take punishment to get all that damage it's not overpowered.

At which point do you see a fed-ass Nunu building a crapton of AP and not immediately think "man maybe I should pick up some magic resist"? Your "maxed inventory" means nothing if it doesn't have the right items in it. Sell something and pick up a Spirit Visage or a Mercurial Scimitar or both.

I'll make sure to build in reaction to what I am facing from now on. That's a good point about the magic resistance and it's very likely why I died instantly from his ultimate during that match. Just wish people had told me sooner to start building in reaction to who you're facing. I just used guides and builds on lolking and blindly followed them or did a variation on 1 or 2 different things. Regardless of who I faced just used the same builds for the most part. Either way, thanks for the help.

You were using Kayle, with ur ult u shouldn't be dying by his ult. :/

No and I like Nunu. His ult is bad.

He's ridiculously good, but not quite for the reasons outlined in your post. But I think enough has been said about that already.
