Very Agree.. Patch preview by Morello said that sona's Power chord is untouched,
but then.... Riot... <.<
And LoL to the person saying ruining AD Sona. I don't see how they did that. Same numbers in the end, more power chord damage.
Well its at later levels, but then ur harassing ability is reduced at early game.
Here: at sona lvl 1 & 4
-before nerf (double power chord 14+9x level):
14+9x1 = 23x2 = 46 Dmg-> lvl 1
14+9x4 = 50x2 = 100 Dmg-> lvl 4
-after nerf (double power chord 10 flat per level)
10x1 = 10x2 = 20 Dmg -> lvl 1
10x4 = 40x2 = 80 Dmg-> lvl 4
-LvL 18 (u can say it's at par or very slightly better)
14+9x18 = 176x2 = 352
10x 18 = 180x2 = 360
Problem is 8 AD at late game isn't a big deal, but 46 vs 20 damage at lvl 1 is a big deal,
to conclude, sona suffers at early level harrasing ability after the change. (This is without calculating aura nerf at early levels.)
And btw this isn't just disadvantages for AD sona, some players play sona aggressively at early games, and this does makes a bad impact.
