edit: ok nvm realized its free week lulu
And the best part is, Lulu was only OP in IPL4 because of that niche dignitas filled with her in the 'protect the hypercarry' setup (and largely because of her ult and shield when stacked on top of all the other heals and shields in that teamcomp). Outside of that kind of comp an AP Lulu doesn't do much past early game except provide a reasonably good poke. Her burst is flat out worse than any other actual AP champ I can think of.

i didnt watch the tourney, ive had to play against ap lulu mid, and seen plenty other play against her mid as well, she wins every single time, her harass is simply to good early against other mids and is extremely reliable.

Me? No. Because I play Lulu and I know how to avoid a hella-slow moving skill shot, then close a gap. Once she's in melee, if you're playing anyone with any CC at all she's a goner. Casting Help, Pix! on me means she loses a shield and the polymorph only lasts a second in first rank.

She's OP in lane right now because people don't know how to deal with her tricks. They can nerf her Glitterlance damage if they want, that's not going to affect her support role, but really, she's good as is right now. Not OP, not UP. Just lulzy cupcake fun.

Her scaling on Q and E aren't very good.. She has 1.3 AP scaling on her damage. Eve has 1.28.

The only thing she can do is zone you, anyway Lulu falls of harder than Leblanc with a quarter of her damage

exactly this. people still don't know how to deal with her, but once they learn she'll be just another easy champion to lane against.

If you need the extra peel, you pick janna because of her ult and her tornado. If you want to have one of your tanks become the best tank in the game for 7 seconds and zerg onto their squishies and crush them/pin them down, you pick lulu. If janna had a range limit on her passive (which she should, as that's mostly where her main problem comes from, and you can ask any of the pro players and they'll say the same) then lulu would pretty much be the king of supports hands down.

As a person playing at like 800 ELO, I can promise you nobody in my ranks are wiping the floor with Lulu.

Shen? Yep. Kennen? Ho'cha. Rumble? Mhmm.

But Lulu?

Lulu???

No.

Her passive scales with her level, not even her AP. Worried about her throwing a shield on someone? Well, if you're playing AD, get Madred's. Fixed. Worried about her CC's? Tenacity + QSS *OR* Tenacity + Banshee's Veil.

These are all problems you can fix in game with items, and they're not even necessarily expensive or build-breaking fixes.

Lulu as a support is fantastic. People claiming her problem is her solo laning burst are flat out stupid though. If lulu takes a solo lane as soon as mid game ends she just becomes another support. In fact if you want to play LOLZ DEEPZ lulu you would do signifcantly more damage building her like teemo and playing on hit AS.

Saying that just makes you look ignorant and annoying. If you don't want to hear other people comment on how she isn't OP, Why did you make this thread?

Lulu is pretty powerful at the moment I agree, we generally think that her Q+passive poke is pretty difficult to deal with in the solo lanes. More than likely we'll be looking at taking action in that area but we want to be sensitive to the fact that she can play as a solo mage or support. That's a cool thing that we don't want to take away!
