I agree that we need to keep our eyes on this sort of thing. We certainly would like to tune it to be more and more fun in any future iterations. If we came to believe that Soraka is as OP or frustrating as Karthus or Teemo were, we would certainly ban her out at some point. I know the team is monitoring all of this closely. In the meanwhile, I'd recommend running executioner's calling vs this -- it works pretty well.

That being said, mode is not supposed to be the pinnacle of competitive gaming, it's supposed to be fun. Some match-ups, much like aram match-ups, are a little one-sided, and balancing them all is just not feisable -- but we think the mode is a good fun for a bit nonetheless.

Thanks for the response, yet all of what you said can be applied to Teemo and Karthus(different items of course).

Ty for telling them to build around their opponents. Common sense is no longer so common.

Could you ban Nidalee from OFA? Playing against her isn't even fun, the optimal range to fight her is between two horrible killzones and she's ridiculously mobile. Better yet, you could completely rework her so she no longer has obscene damage at ultra long range AND at melee range AND tons of free movespeed from bushes. I don't know how this champ has escaped nerfs for so long, but she's been one of the most bullsht champs in League since season 2.

Ban Nasus from the game while you're at it.

5 Nasus w/ teleport, Ult, Q, farm.. Too brokenly strong.
