Hey all,

With the continuing goal of making Support players have more meaningful gameplay and enjoy their choices throughout each game of League of Legends, weíre looking at making sure Sona feels as awesome as possible.

Things that are already pretty awesome:

Sonaís role as a buff/enabler support is solid and rewarding.
Sonaís ult is impactful and allows Sona players to make big plays that they and their team can appreciate.

Things that need to be more awesome:

Sonaís auras are powerful, but not satisfying to use, and create very little interaction.
Sonaís basic abilities donít have as much skill expression as many other supports.

These are my current thoughts, as a dude who has been thinking about Sona gameplay a lot lately. I want you to tell me where Iím on track, where Iím wrong, and where Iím totally missing something.

Other things I want to hear from you:

What do you love about playing Sona?
What do you not like about playing Sona?
What decisions are most interesting to you when you play Sona?
What moments of a Sona game make you feel like youíve made a play for your team?

What do you love about playing Sona?
Her utility in all aspects: heal, damage,
What do you not like about playing Sona?
So squishy.
What decisions are most interesting to you when you play Sona?
When to use ult for a penta-Cresendo.
What moments of a Sona game make you feel like youíve made a play for your team?
Penta-Cresendo

Instead of E giving aoe speed boost, it should give a shield or armour buff for a few seconds. It could be clutch shield or armour on the most damaged ally. The closer Sona is, the bigger the shield(Cuz if ur closer, the song is stronger.)
If you apply this idea, it could give bonuses for Sona being close to her allies/enemies when using her abilities so she can heal/dmg/shield/armour more. But it also include RISKS because if Sona is closer to her enemies/allies, she also risks aoe damage/cc, or weaker positioning since she's so squishy and all.

Sona seems like she's just not up to par with other top tier supports right now. She lacks the kind of heal that Soraka can bring, she lacks the amount of CC that Leona or Thresh can bring, and she lacks the poke and MS buff that Karma can bring.

She just feels like she doesn't really have anything that can be used as a niche for her other than her Crescendo.
