It's not her lack of ability that makes her rarely used (and thus seen as "underpowered") but the fact that she has no real position on a team. Lux has the same problem - there are more viable mids, and she's a combat support, not zero-CS.

But no, she's great.
Yeah, thats what I was thinking. I don't think shes weak at all, its just her Spirit Bond is so hard to use, I would argue its the hardest skill in the game to max its potential on.

The popular champions are ones that fit into any comp. Karma needs a particular team to function well and people aren't willing to spend the time to develop a new strat that utilizes her because building a specific team comp is easily countered via bans.

except shes consistently last in every sample since ever... you can deny it as you like but karma has a consistently poor win ratio which is as close to proof as you can ever get in a video game such as league of legends

your opinion does not trump math ever

and who cares if she cant carry? you know who can? GOOD CHAMPIONS

people who play LoL have this idea that champs can be OP, but they can't be underpowered.

I have never played Karma myself, but a friend of mine mains her and i can say without a doubt she is a beast. if for nothing else but her OP shield that damn near gives you double health.
