But @Certainlyt:
Why did you design Darius. He's the most anti-fun champion ever. I'd rather face a Teemo.
zyra isn't fine shows what you know.

imo, zyra is still decent.
nothing like prenerf, but decent

i'd say she may still work as one of the top 10 still, if enough work goes into it

#3 highest winrate in the game last week. That seems pretty solid to me:

No one plays Zyra anymore because they're retarded and band wagon humpers.

I've played her since release, I have not noticed a difference.

She's easily my most played champ now and she's still VERY powerful but I have to agree with some of the earlier posts that the _way_ she was nerfed has killed her play style.

Really all you do now is time seeds to sprout during your "big combo". I would have LOVED to have seen the plant damage based on leveling "w" ... it would have made two distinct flavors of Zyra: the burst spell caster and the sustained damage dealer. Instead I have to seed/spell spam in order to not only get that damage dealt but to deal with the crappy plant ai mechanics that have it randomly target whatever is closest (not necessarily a champion) or else watch it waste it's short life attacking a minion wave while my intended target runs away unscathed.

You know how impossible that makes team fights when I can't count on my plants to even go after a tank and instead hit a creep unless I spend extended time in range AAing targets? Crappy.

She's still my favorite champ .... heck of a lot of fun ... but I feel a lot has been lost.

So I tried her because of all the whining and I had not played her after the nerf: Still a great champ even though I lost with her. I got caught watching my teammates playing twice leading to Morgana killing me twice with bind + pool + ult and each time I got back in lane, I felt perfectly safe and like I could handle a 1v1.

Team mistakes lost the game for my team. We were making great decisions for most of the game but lost out on a baron, had our team aced while we were racing to get to baron before they killed it.

I can't see any reasons of nerfs, or maybe not that much. Apparently, if Jungler comes when Zyra's flash down and being jumped on, she's literally a dying plant. And as another guy at the other post said, most of the Zyra(talking about Mid) in Diamonds have score Kills = Death or somewhere close. Is that overpowered?

For all the people think she deserves this kind of a nerf, you guys are probably in Bronze V or never play Mid or Zyra.

(Zyra main right here, at least over 300 games.)
