i find it interesting that riot keeps working on yi constantly because people say he's overpowered. well guess what, he's still overpowered. if they won't nerf his meditate much then why are they so willing to nerf janna's ult. it's not even reasonable anymore.

Bump for plenty of Janna love, from a support main. <3

I don't usually play support...

But when I do, I play Janna. Buff her now! The mana cost reduction on her ult is not enough!

Oh look, another issue related to bruisers with gap closers. Seems to be the trend, along with tanky supports being better than most other supports.

Yeah I agree totally on the ult issue. Even if you do push a bruiser out, he will jump right back on you or your carry. Or if he doesn't, another bruiser will

If I want to win, I go janna because I know she has the most influence out of all the supports in winning a game.

Im not sure why pro supports dont pick Janna. Maybe they do think she needs to be buffed or she doesnt go with their strategies. Either way I side with the live team in thinking she is balanced. If she does get buffed, great I'm all for it. I just wont be surprised if she doesnt.
With all those pure AD things going on
With all those bruisers and assassins comps going on just diving straight for the carry
With all those aggressive bot lanes (which Janna used to control pretty well)
With those "poke-push-gtfo" comps

I just can't bring myself to think that Janna isn't picked because she does not fit the pros' strategy. And it's true that before the nerfs I wouldn't see a LOT of others Janna due to her skillcap but I'd see SOME at least, now it's me or nobody. You don't just need to be a very good Janna to win your lane now, you need to be a better player overall than the enemy.

Good luck justiying Janna in a team just because you can interrupt Zenith Blade with Howling Gale (and inb4 Riot removes that from her too).

I love how if you make your post long enough you will get upvotes regardless of the content.
If you didn't bother to read my post then why do you bother with RESPONDING to it? You have no idea what I'm talking about and what arguments/ideas I brought to the table. Get out.

And I'm pretty confident not everybody is as lazy as you are.

Bump!
Yes. Hardly a relevant point though.

They said that about Sona and they ended up being able to balance her, I'm confident they can do it with Janna.

Also, ADC & Jungle Janna are fun. They really WTF'd when I flashed into the pit to steal dragon, then ulted them out of the way for a clean getaway.
Yeah I saw. That's cool but it's not the issue with Janna (although it is pretty swell that they're realizing that the mana cost on that is ridiculous).

Also different builds are cool. Like I said I did everything with Janna. But the fact of the matter is that she's mostly supposed to be a support and she can hardly do her job well recently.

Janna has more starting armor than Sona (and possibly Soraka I don't remember). Of course tanky supports have better base stats but among squishy supports, she's fine in that department.

Apparently. I did that thread before that though, and ontop of that I believe her mana costs are the LEAST of her worries. Riot isn't looking at this on the right direction.
