I really want your thoughts on this.
I fear for the future of Sivir since I think Sivir might have a similar problem.
Her kit doesn't bring anything that you couldn't get elsewhere IMO. Want a bursty carry? Take Graves. What a dude who can chase/escape well? Take Corki/Ezreal. Want a decent combination of both? Pick up Teemo/Jayce. Want a team boost? Take a support. Want fast moving champ with crazy AoE all day AND team support? Go AD nidalee with a Runaan's Hurricane and Ravenous Hydra.
Sivir now kind of lacks a "signature BS move" that no one else gets due to designing her remake to fall more in line with standard ADCs added with the new Season 3 item overhaul and it causes her to fall out of the game unless she's OP.
IMHO, Sivir's reamake and the Season 3's items kinda feels like remaking Teemo's shrooms into some other thing, and then making a Season 4 support item with a Teemo shroom active without the damage. Even Banshee's Veil has been buffed to a 25 second CD in season 3, making her spell shield even less unique (Spell Shield at level 1 is on a 22 second CD. Also, if both Spell Shield and Banshee's Veil is active when a Spell hits Sivir, BOTH Shields pop.) Even if the argument was made that she could still use the items herself, Sivir has lackluster base stats in addition to that 500 range she has, making the most of the other items more effective on other champions than on Sivir. Like Volibear, I think that even though that Sivir isn't weak when played properly, she still lacks specialty in season 3

What are your thoughts on this?
Also, an awesome (incomplete) picture of Sivir cuz I love her so much.
