It was caught.
I have been saying she was op from early PBE.
But you know, OP sells...

what hurts me more is her MS nerf. .. she'll be slow as hell ... easy to gank, easy to kill and impossible to catch a fleeing enemy :s
With a snare, potentially attached slow and the fact that you can still actually get Zyra's ultimate behind your target she'll still have extremely high control over her opponent. It will probably make Rylai's all the more worthwhile on her, but hardly stop her from sticking to someone or keeping them away from her under her tower.

I feel like Zyra was already countered pretty hard by a few champs, especially the gap-closing assassins you mentioned like Akali and Kat. Would these changes make her just insanely shut down against them?

Dianna is just like Akali, but you can't counter/shut down her lanning phase and prevent her from snowballing.

I only question why it was said before her release was delayed for further PBE testing, and yet she was still released as strong as she was.
Glad she's getting some balance change though.

OUCH! Totally gutted, I guess I'll never play this champ again.

Honestly the nerfs to her ulti was enough. I can't see anyone playing her seriously now....

Nerf to her "E" was totally unneeded.

Gutted! I'll play her again when her E is rebuffed, until then I'll never play her even if it means for good.

Back to Ahri, Morgana, Cass, Karthas.

You guys are terrible into really knowing what a nerf is.

Eve, Xin Zhao, Soraka(sustain nerf), Sona(After IEM),
