Because people complain about everything. Her Q is a double snare, her E is a really good slow and her ult can snag kills. Not to mention she gains sight from her E and R. People are going to say that she's too strong or too hard to counter because they don't want to take the time to figure out a champion. That's how you come out with Orianna's debuff into oblivion (even though the first one was well deserved) and never getting a real buff again. Lux has better range than Orianna to begin with and her E passes through so it won't get weaker like Orianna's ball does passing through enemies. If you don't think she won't get any qq you should think about it more.

Short answer: she's really hard to play, and playing her optimally requires alot of kiting and patience (something most players lack)

Long answer:
Lux relies on landing her entire damage combo in order to be effective, unfortunately her Q comes with a very high mana cost and a high cooldown. If you want to become aggressive in lane, you are forced to shoot Q after Q, which will deplete your mana pool quickly assuming you are using your E to clear the creeps (which most good Lux's do)

Pros: Full 3 spell combo (Q into E(explode) R is devastating on single targets and in team fights. W is extremely potent with only 1 point at shielding multiple people in team fights. Great farming capability with E and R. Exceptional kiting

Cons: High mana costs, unreliable, hard to pull off spell combos, extremely unforgiving when missing spells.

Good news everyone! Lux is getting mana cost reductions next patch. Making it easier for Lux to take more chances in lane, and play more aggressive. We like that Lux is a hard to play mage with high rewards (seriously, practice Q - E- R combo), so we're trying to make her less punishing.

Mana cost reduction is one of the things I can agree on since it doesn't concern power which she doesn't really need. It's also one of the things people complained about the most, glad she's getting it.

I generally lay down E before doing Q+R to make it easier to land the spells.

I like Lux for what she does- she's not your average faceroll on the keyboard and smash that champion, what she offers is quite decent harass. I use E rather than Q to hit champions.

Whenever a Lux is in my team, I tend to win more often than not.

Jatt- yay for mana cost reductions. Just bought Lux yesterday too.
