When I see Corki, I see 300g with a hat in a gyrocopter

Valkyrie was overnerfed. The range is so small, there's never a situation where it will actually be useful. Can it escape? Not really. Can it be used as an initiator? Not really, and why would you want to go melee range with a ranged DPS character? You're better off with Flash.

I agree. It's only good at killing minions, sometimes.

It doesn't scare anyone, and it doesn't help you escape...

Valkyrie has definitely helped me escape and chase even with the nerfed range.

It's not so much the range of Valkyrie that's the useful part of escaping with it (though it's still good for distancing). It's the fact that he can go over terrain with it. You have to be smart with how/when you use it. There's places where you can Valk over a wall and whoever is chasing won't really be able to do anything about it. Presto, you're safe!

I've been in a bit of a Corki phase myself recently. He's definitely not up, at all. I would consider myself to be a pretty average player. Almost 170 games played now, and stay a bit above 50% win rate. Records from recent match list where I've used Corki (only first one was a practice):
21/7/23 (win, though it was a practice game)
19/5/12 (lost this one somehow!?!?!)
2/7/6 (we were utterly destroyed this game)
3/1/5 (win, other team surrendered asap)
1/3/7 (win, another fast surrender, I helped our Poppy get fed)
6/1/16 (win)

It's kinda funny though... I've heard a lot of this whole "I've never seen a good Corki" thing lately, and I don't really get it. That 19/5/12 game that we lost... one guy on our team said "No, anybody but Corki" as soon as I chose him, claiming that he'd never seen even a decent Corki. Somehow I don't really think that loss was my fault.

he is not a good carry but a smart champ to have on a team. corki is very reliant on having a team with him, he can't really pull any amazing solo merlini moves out like yi can.
