After winning a game with Sivir I checked the stats on her from Lolking. She has a 7% pick-rate, and a 53% win-rate.

I'm wondering why her pick rate is so low when she is very good against many of the highest rated supports, such as Taric and Sona, as well Blitzcrank.

If anyone can help me understand why she is rarely picked, I'd appreciate it.

Low-range.

People over-estimate the weakness of that range.

They exaggerate the weakness when they describe it to others.

The others hear and proceed to not pick Sivir.

The others proceed to tell others about Sivir.

High skill cap. High mana costs - most players have poor mana conservation skills. (Working on mine lawl)

Mostly not screwing up your spell shield.

Too early and you lose out on mana regen and screw your self with incoming CC.
Too late and you die.

ehh,i don't like her range.

There's no logical reason where Sivir should have a range lower than Graves when he is a close-quarter champion and Sivir isn't.

She constantly looks like she's running in slow motion like this game was based on baywatch.

Very short AA range for a ranged carry. You need to be clutch with the spell shield in teamfights. Also she has mana problems early game if there isn't a reliable source of mana (think Cait traps to shield).
