Nami OP, UP or balanced?

#1SirDanieIPosted 12/9/2012 1:04:44 AM
So what is she? I'm finding it hard to tell since I haven't played many games with her. Looking at her skills on one hand shes got 3 seconds of AOEhard cc as well as minor buffs and heals. But on the other hand her q is not that reliable. I really don't know what to make of her.

(And please don't give me some bull like no champion is OP or UP; if all champions were balanced there wouldn't be nerfs/buffs)

Pretty balanced I'd say. Could use a slight tweak to her passive imo, as its kind of lackluster, but other than that its the first champion in a while that is released very well balanced.

OP of course, Riot wants to sell her as much as possible before she gets nerfed.

i like how obvious her ult is and how I can just list lazily to the left or right and avoid it.

From my first five or so games with her, she feels pretty nicely balanced. She has a pretty good best case (Q hits and W bounces twice) but it's hard to get that off, and you're never going to do it consistently. E is much better than I gave it credit for initially, and it's what keeps her from being UP.

Her skills are strong if they hit, but slow as hell and easy to dodge.

She's good an prolonging already CC'd characters though.
I'm bad at LoL.

I'd say she's about equal to Janna, with Janna having the better CC and Nami having more poke and some heal. I still feel Janna is better overall for the same effect. Maybe weaker early game but better late game.
