You guys are just paying your time by putting things out like this... aren't you...

Zyra, just like Leona when she was released, is taunting everyone that wants her by being in the list but not being buyable.

She’s so open-ended, since she doesn’t bring the same guns to the fight like other AP champions. She’s not going to go toe-to-toe with other pure APs – she needs to use her abilities and combos to dish it out. Her play is important.
I was stoked for Zyra, but this kind of concerns me. I've seen this go both ways, where they either aren't tuned enough to actually fill the multiple roles intended (See: Leona and how she's outclassed both in top and jungle, which were initial options for her, and relegated to being stuck as support), and some that are overtuned and not only fill many roles well, but one or two *too* well (Such as pre-nerf Nidalee or Gangplank, who could overdominate their areas and still have a ton of utility).

Not saying the broad focus is bad, but I know from seeing it in action that it's extremely hard to balance, I'm hopeful that it can be pulled off with Zyra, but we'll have to see.

We're really going to have to have a talk, Morello about your analogies.
Fitting nowhere != open-ended.

I read all these and upvoted them, but I didn't even read the main post in this thread. XD
