I have a feeling that people will be ahead of the curve this time and play her as a support 1st. The kit just screams support.

Logics.

Though, to be fair, they do all have eerie similarities. All different enough to escape scrutiny, but still...

As a major support player, QQ.
Way too much troll potential

Haha, yea, direct comparison to Morgana is dumb, but there's always these "Y is X 2.0" threads. Started off with Lux is Morgana 2.0, then you had Zyra is Lux 2.0. If you logically went down the list, then Lissandra is Morgana 4.0 =P

Has a root, has supportish ability (lux and morg shield, zyra) and was intended to be a mage but is played in support role. There's a lot of similarities between the 3, and if lissandra is zyra 2.0 and zyra is lux 2.0 and lux is morgana 2.0, that makes lissandra morgana 2.0. There's also the large multi-target CC they all seem to have. Only zyra and morg have it on their ult, though.

And then off to support she goes
She's sooner go top, her kit is amazing on a tanky champion and is basically a weak leona for support.

My thought exactly. Her support kit actually looks really strong. As a support she can initiate in the middle of them and be able to ult an enemy instead of herself as having an APC charge in the middle of the enemy team might not be essential if she doesn't ult herself. Lissandra support on the other hand...

Oh please, Lux is blatantly Morgana 2.0.

The big difference is their Ult and that one's shield blocks only AP and status while the other blocks any HP but not status.

Slapping a new Ult and passive on a champ doesn't make it a new champ. No, not even if you make it better by making Q hit 2 targets instead of 1, or W instant damage instead of damage over time.

They won't let her cast ice tomb on allies, simply because it could be misused to troll.

There is no ability in the game that actually hard cc's an ally in any way. The closest things are anivias wall and trundle's pillar.

Even thresh's lantern requires ally participation.

Kind of a shame, but totally understandable in a team game where you're usually matched with people you don't know. It would be pretty annoying to have a troll cast this on, say, a melee bruiser in the middle of a team fight to prevent him from doing anything.
