do you have any plans for intermediate buffs until her rework arrives? she's in a pretty horrible spot.

Testing at the moment to see if we can add one of the things from the rework to her current kit. Initial testing suggests it may not function well enough without other corresponding kit changes, looking into it though in case we can give her a bit of help sooner.

At least she's still useful in ARAMs.

We're testing nerfs to all 3 (guessing only the Nami ones are on PBE from your question), along with some buffs to other supports.

didn't you even see the pbe changes, braum is getting nerfed on the passive again I believe, and his ult slow is getting lowered, knock up duration lowered and slow duration lowered.

How lovely. Thanks for the response even if that doesn't turn out well. It's nice to know that there's actually been progress on her rework and that she hasn't just been left aside.

Soraka desperately needs to see some buffs, she's been sitting in the gutter since SEVERAL patches now - anything to bridge the awful wait for the rework, really.

She's almost unplayable in her current state, it's beyond me how this can be considered acceptable from the balancing team. Her mana-costs are overbearing and her damage is non-existent. Combined with her lack of cc & mobility, she's the worst support this game has ever seen so far.
