Care to back that up with anything relevant? I am open to the idea but you simply telling me you think she's "downright terrible" doesn't convince me.

She succeeds at what she was intended to do, imo.


She doesn't succeed very well anywhere.

Her heal costs an absurd amount of mana and scales poorly as you level it.
Her Q costs an absurd amount of mana and scales poorly as you level it.
Her E costs an absurd amount of mana and scales poorly as you level it.
Her Ult is a simple 1.5 second AoE stun with some damage tacked on.
She has to gear for AP because of her terrible base healing, which is too costly for a support to do.
She has to farm to gear for AP.
She sucks at farming.
She can't hold a lane.
She can't solo a lane.
She can't push a lane.
She has no lane control outside of harass the first 1-3 levels.
She can't babysit a lane because of these problems, causing her to fail the role a support must take.
In team fights she can't choose who to heal.
In team fights she can't choose who to damage.
In team fights she can't move up to exploit her passive, which becomes useless after laning phase regardless.
In team fights she has no escape-abilities, stick someone to her and she'll die.

I used to main Sona. Was she overpowered? Yeah, she was. Then they nerfed her Q, W, and E, along with her Ult and passive. Then they nerfed her Q, W, and E again. Then they removed Innervating Locket and left her bruised and broken in the corner.

There's no reason to use her over any other Support right now.

Perfectly stated. I support your analysis...wish she wouldn't have been nerfed so hard. I used to main her but my friends don't let me play her because the game drags on too long when we do win-and it's super hard to do usually, and when we lose, we lose really hard because Sona...well just refer to the post above :/

or we could just buff her a bit back to where she was or a little below that, cause she doesnt really need a rework

The only thing bad about Sona is that she's super easy to kill low level. She's one of the easiest supports to harass the enemy with, her sustain is pretty cheap compared to other supports, and her movement speed steroid has a lot of uses. Oh, and her ult can win a fight and her passive is like having another couple abilities if you put some forethought into it.

So except for her squishiness she's in a very competitive position right now.
