What I don't get is why Riot keeps on nerfing the "squishy" supports, like Sona and Janna, whilst the tanky permaban supports, Blitzcrank and Alistar, still remain untouched.

Don't touch Sona! She's my favorite support! ._.

Just wait til Support Zyra catches on (Though it already is) - Pokes as hard as Sona, with a team-fight breaking ult...

Though I guess Zyra doesn't have a heal as strong as a regrowth pendant...

There are always nerfs after the tournament.

That said, where's the quote/link?

Just asked about this.

You guys ready for super downvote power?

Sona too strong, elbows out others. :x

Morello said it in his "Lead" designer thread. Red response 37 from memory.

Shen'd with the actual quote- good work sir.

I don't even play Sona.

I'm just flabbergasted that Riot is continuing to gut the support role... ****ing MAGES and TANKS are better supports than supports are at the moment. I've seen support Fiddle, support Zyra, support Naut, support Syndra

You know your support class is in trouble when...

Thing is that all this non supports are starting to get treated as if they were traditional ones, pretty much like Leona who's supposed to be a tank. Some people start saying this is "diversity" in the suport role, when it's actually the worst case of powercreeping in this entire game.
Apparently now supports have to be on par with the non supports, and if a natural suppot does the job better than an outsider, it's overpowered and needs a nerf.

It's the smallest champion pool with most of it's (traditional) members already overnerfed. For God's sake balance team, get a ****ing clue.

Honestly, I think that's what they're aiming for.
