I will be really disappointed in you, Morello, if you decide to nerf her just because of the screaming masses (despite this forum downvoting every post and thread calling for a nerf to her damage, which is surprising but correct).

|does single target damage|
My point, is that these casters all do good AoE damage; doing this extra damage to nearby targets obliterates the entire team at once and reduces the damage you'll need to do to kill them when your spells come back up. When LeBlanc drops a target, she has to start all over again on a different target; they'll only be not at full health if your team helps. Annie, Veigar, and Anivia don't have to worry about starting on a new target who is at full health, because their damage splashes onto them.
Do I need to quote it again? LeBlanc does single target damage. People are very selfish; they only noticed that they died to LB. "Zomg! She killed me with her 'only' two significant nukes and two weaker ones! She must be overpowered!" Totally ignoring the fact that the rest of his team is un-CC'd and un-harmed.
Now, let's translate that to Annie: "Zomg! Annie killed me from full health with all her spells, and nearly killed half of my other teammates! Stunned em, too! She's balanced."
"Zomg! Veigar burst me down from full health, stunned my whole team, and nearly killed half of them! There goes Anivia, slowing the entire team, stunning half of it, and bursting a squishy down."
Are you guys that dumb? Really? That dumb? She's even more "kill-one-person-then-dies,or-can't-do-no-more" than pre-buff Akali was.
urgh this topic makes me mad even more so that morello even entertained the notion that she was overpowered
I will agree, however, that her laning is stupid. The range on sigil is huge, and the mana costs are... what? only 70-80? how is that even possible... You can nerf those. Gladly. But don't think for a second that she won't be as useless as Swain if you nerf her damage.
