She needs changes, feel too outdated right now.
Do you guys agree? Let's discuss, please.

I think she's still a good pick, just not popular because people say she's boring for the same reasons say support in general is boring.

Put MS Quints on with some ap runes, max E, man up. Bananas and silence. You are now aggro raka.

Your silence isn't as strong as other ccs, it doesn't stop AAs. If they engage on you, you only have a heal. In 20 seconds cd.
She simply doesn't work with the agresssive bot lane anymore.

If she were to be changed, it shouldn't be because she doesn't "fit the meta" - if that is even true right now. Her tanky donations to her team are proportionally better with all of the tank stats nerfed. She also has more things to build with more actives so that she has a bit more to do in teamfights.

What? You aren't using it as CC, you're using it as free harass. Raka AA range is on par with ADC and her E has even a farther range. You go in when they're about to last hit and E+AA. You make them choose a last hit or trading with you. Because her AA is a slow projectile also, she harasses better than people think as well too.

Riot needs to rehire Shurelia so she can have a 2nd chance at remaking Soraka. I want to see how broken she makes her this time.

Noticeable damage will come only early on. After a point, you can't do anything. Then it just takes an agressive support to engage with you, end of point. No escaping.

Sad part is.

Most people don't realize that soraka has potential for one of the most aggressive bot lane supports in the game when played well.

Most people just sit there and afk as a heal bot.

"With the agressiveness of the bot lane, seems like Soraka is eating dust." in response to that from your link.

You can't play like that vs every lane, but seriously soraka is a total beast of an aggressive support if you know how to play her [also knowing when to and when not to play her aggressively]

Also keep in mind, her global is darn good.

A soraka with strong other lane awareness can win games with that ult in lane.
