Truth. Riot went out of their way to develop a new mechanic (conditional duration knockup) just to nerf Janna there, and her new instant-cast Q is only good for interrupts. For CC, it's a mosquito bite and won't save anyone.

That said, I wish they'd buff her ult range back too.

Also, fair warning, I really wanted a conversation about janna, but Im not really willing to slog through the 40 pages of replies to get to it.

If I missed something earlier in the thread, let me know.

When was the last time you saw a Janna in a competitive game?
That didn't get wrecked to a point where you wondered why the hell pick her?

Exactly.

To be fair, she can be pretty silly and effective in casual games (the tornado wave clear is fun). Of course casual games have no bearing on competitive viability, and obviously I support the buff Janna cause as I've been bumping this thread for a while now :P

Janna is fun kind of, but whenever I play her I lose. I'd like to see an alternative to Lulu, really I would.

I sense the revision of the shield nerf.... If the high knock up with q instantly is replaced.. that'd rock, too xD

Okay I'm talking SUPPORT Janna in casual games not ARAM or AP Janna mid or whatever. Support Janna maxes Q last and can't clear waves worth ****

I don't know how you build your casual support Janna, but I build her with a Deathcap

And of course I max the W first for maximum casual fun. W > Q > E.

<3 and TY. She's my favorite support by far, and one of my overall fave characters.

Any chance at giving some of her damage ratio's back? I miss being able to go mid and feel effective as AP.
