Long cooldown

LONG COOLDOWN

Really though, I thought everyone already knew Soraka and her lane partner are sitting ducks when her heal is on CD.

If you mean teamfights, I'd rather have slightly less armor from Taric along with his stun. And damage Aura. And Armor debuff. And I'd say, after Soraka, he's probably the least effective at protecting a carry in team fights.

Nerfed and WEAK in lane and situational in teamfights.

How many times was soraka picked in the most recent tournament?

You lost all credibility when you cited that as correct supporting. The only reason he didn't feed first blood was because Corki screwed up his autoattack after his flash (if you watch closely, Corki auto'd a minion after flashing; if he auto'd Aphromoo, Aphromoo would've been dead and then it would've been 2v1.

That said, I think Soraka's still really strong late game. She doesn't really have peel, but having 2 heals and good sustain makes her very good for those late game dances around objectives. Also, Soraka doesn't become useless when her team is significantly behind. When Leona's team is significantly behind, however, she can't initiate without getting blown up, and if she tries to protect her carry then the enemy team will just blow up the rest of her team.

Though you're trying to compare a sustain support whose role is to make the lane more safe, have global presence post-6, and sustain her team in drawn-out objective dances to an aggressive support whose role is to stun-lock an enemy, have really strong lane pressence post-6, and initiate or peel for her team. Apples to oranges.

Soraka's long auto attack range makes her the third best harassing support after Sona and LuLu.

Make her Q lower her heal's cooldown by 1 second for each champion it hits.

Yes. And her silence is actually surprisingly strong as an offensive or defensive tool. She actually can win some lane matchups. She won't win them hard, but still come out ahead. The problem is still the late game, though.

Well, that, and most Soraka players (especially the ones that main her and cry that Morello hates their healer playstyle) are beyond bad and don't understand how to do anything except sit there and press W.
