How does Poppy place in the Dominion metagame now?

Compared to SR, she keeps all of her good points and loses all of the bad (hard to farm, terrible laning phase).

She has decent mobility and burst on a relatively short cooldown. It's easy to get her stun off during jungle skirmishes, and her ult is quite nice for stalling or eliminating important targets.

I was hoping to pick her up again after not playing Poppy for about a year. How does she fare in the current metagame now? I would love to hear the community's advice and insights.

BFT hurt her a little. But higher prevalence of squishies helps her a lot. Just underplayed probably because is boring.

More like her Noxian Skin just scares the living daylights out of me...

I sometimes wonder why riot gave such giant fricken manacosts to a champion that is NU tier in SR. I feel like Riot is afraid of what will happen if they try to balance her, since her ult can be used kind of like Olaf's but you can't kill her.

They said their desire is to balance her ****ty early game (which is further gated by her mana costs) and her monstrous late game if she can get there.

Zekent got to high Elo in Ranked on an account spamming just Poppy, and like Nasus the goal is "Get to late game."

Seems to me Poppy was never really popular in games I've played - people who liked Poppy still play her, but most people just don't play her much.

More boring than Vi? More boring than Katarina? Wouldn't say so.

I don't see her much, but she usually does fairly well when I do. I've done the Karma/Poppy combo a few times and it's worked quite well. Karma and Poppy just roam around the map together killing people and never dying.
