Karma
 
So I purchased Karma recently and have been rolling quite a few games with her. I found her most effective as a solo top, she has great harass and sustain and I seemed to do well with her all around. Now a lot of people tell me she is worthless, is this due to them just not understanding how she works? I know I lose a lot of her potential because she relies heavily on team synergy with her to maximize her damage output when it comes to team skirmishes, and most people don't understand how her skills work and it's hard to communicate to them how to play with her. She also is rarely played, you never see her, so I am opening this thread to discussing this gold champion. Likes? Dislikes? Builds? Strategies? Let's shed a little light on a seriously undervalued champion.

Yes. Karma is awesome, just dont play her as a support. Ever.

Karma is an awesome AP. She can be absurdly powerful especially in a teamfight when you have a premade.

Keyword: Premade.

You cannot rely on Karma to be good in solo/duo que because the population is just under educated.

As far as ranked goes, she's just not viable unless you're in a 5 premade... and when you get to the 1800+ Elo range, she loses effectiveness because the opposing teams know what she does, and that little wire is your damage. Lets be honest.

Karma's a rewarding champion because she can literately pubstomp people who underestimate her(every new or low elo player). She just doesn't have enough to make her viable in higher elos because the other team know how to counter her and there are just stronger champions that do what she does.

Hmm. It just seems iffy to put her top in my opinion. She lacks a reliable escape, so I don't think putting her there would be the best idea. If you do well with it, by all means, do it. But I fail to see how that's the best lane for her. I'd really enjoy hearing your reasoning behind it. I personally like her mid against Karthus. Surprising how well she does against him.
