So just to clear, the Ahri, Fizz and Kassadin nerfs are coming up soon?
They were already nerfed, I don't know why you're asking. Check out the 3.13 patch notes. --- The time is out of joint. O cursed spite, that ever I was born to set it right! http://i.imgur.com/DIRzlqU.gif
Sigh overall AP Janna mid nerfed. But I'm liking the AD scaling on her shield.
Not even worth it. You press E on adc, enemy support Annie presses Q on your adc. Your adc loses hp and has no more bonus ad and is stunned.
You press Q to maybe knock up a few targets, Annie presses R and dumps 400+ damage onto three of your team members.
What maybe equalized support Janna to support Annie before was that once items got going, a few defensive items dumped Annie's damage because of her inability to really build any meaningful AP items. Now, with the way wards are changed and trinkets and abundantly cheap AP items that can be built in sets, there is no point to support Janna anymore compared to support Annie. She'll be able to gain enough AP items to at least make up for some decent amount of scaling while your own skills just don't have any level of worthwhile damage output to them and I can't think of a single traditional support outside of maybe Nami R and Sona R that are worth their utility over their damage output when placed against the potential damage that AP mages like Zyra or Veigar or Annie can give to their team on top of having pretty significant cc utility themselves.
You can argue a bit for Thresh utility as well but honestly, I'd rather just have a good catch with Zyra snare and then aoe knockup with decent damage behind it and plants dropped onto the enemy team. It's often safer to do and easier to pull off. And the strongest sets of her utility, poking, is easier and safer than your landing a stun hook and jumping into the middle of the enemy team.
Ahri and Fizz were nerfed in 3.13. While Kass was changed, it doesn't seem to have dented his effectiveness. Who knows when they'll get to him again --- "When it comes to eating out, being a girl is the only way to go." - Ranma
Yeah....I picture it beginning it's fast and inevitable decline this season. Probably have 1 year, maybe 2 tops left before Riot goes bankrupt trying to revive their once-great game, and pulls the plug on the servers.

*sigh* No more Sona, Nami, Janna, or Soraka for me. I don't know about Alistar. It's time for me to get goof at Zyra, Fiddlesticks, and Annie "support" since they are the only viable options. Might try Gangplank or Maokai though. --- Add me on Skype! tiamats4esgares --- League of Legends IGN (NA): MeltedWater
