I mean she has amazing CC (2 abilities), her AOE skills and passive synergize very well in teamfights...
Why is she regarded as useless? She is like the next Amumu.
Amumu is banned? Np pick Leona
She's regarded as useless by the community because the community only cares about how much damage she can deal, rather than whether or not she can stunlock someone for 3-4 seconds.
She doesnt fit the current 'meta game'
She cant jungle
She doesnt have some sort of heal/shield for bottom lane support
She doesnt do enough damage for top solo lane
She was decent, just got buffs. I'm in game as her right now actually
Leona still can kill anyone at before lvl 6 really easy.
The thing is that, they are all a bunch of noobs who thinks that tanks should have dmg.
Edit: notice that the most "uninformed" people are the ones that tries to look cool by saying "meta". It's just a made up word that has nothing to do with the situation and sounds cool.
Amumu just does her job better is all, with more dmg.
