Why is the usefulness of the supports lower and lower every month, with nothing being added power-wise to help make up for it?
I mean, I´m okay with heals being nerfed, but shouldnt their basic damage output be raised a little, to help keep the champion useful overall? Im not even going to name any. I feel ALL the support champions are horribly underpowered right now.
Champion X heals for Y every Z? okay, nerfing the amount of Y and increasing the time on Z. What´s that? you want his armor/speed/attack/other to go up to balance things out? What´s this.. "balance" thing you speak of?
Taric: Attack speed increased... yeah right, as if we didint notice in his spotlight that his one and only item was a dagger for ASPD
Sona: Oh, the locket makes Sona OP, lets nerf her! Then, the locket is REMOVED from the game. Not adjusted, not nerfed, not rebalanced. REMOVED, but Sona stays nerfed anyway, lol. Oh and lets lower all her abilities every month from now on, ok?
(Seriously, have you noticed that EVERY MONTH Sona gets a new nerf or three? And that she hasn´t gotten a single buff on ANY area since release day?)
Soraka: Eh, lets just make her OP, then lets nerf her into oblivion
I could go on and on... every single support champion has been nerfed into useless status, but while I am okay with the game going more aggressive and heals having less of an impact, shouldnt these same champions get something else to help balance them out and keep them in the game?
