Then I highly suggest you nerf Zyra's damage, and not her range. You guys ****ed up bad on Urgot because all his ranges got hit.

Frankly Morello I appreciate the work you guys put into this game. A lot of people give you guys **** but there is a lot you have to deal with, And as much as I love Zyra she is too strong and a nerf will be good for her. So thank you. (Going to be hated by every one for being a fanboy.)

So if Zyra's getting nerfed, does that mean Karthus, Ahri, Morgana, Ryze, Anivia, Kennen and Cassiopia are getting nerfed too? Doesn't make sense to nerf one character who's among but not past the top APs.

The top players in the game disagree with you that Zyra is weaker than said picks.

Morello, if you read this, I feel it is Zyra's Grasping Roots is the problem.

Being a linear-outward-shooting AoE snare, Zyra is near impossible to gank in lane. Any attempt to approach her is blocked by that E.

On top of that, her E hits about as hard as her Q ability.
On top of being an AoE disable, this damage makes it feel ridiculously powerful. I've seen Zyras max E first, and use it to farm minion waves!



In short, I feel Zyra should be encouraged to use Grasping Roots only as a disable and not be a major source of damage.

Grasping Root's base damage should be reduced significantly to weaken her early game safety.

If necessary, increase her Q's AP ratio to compensate.

A lot of the players on PBE are new players that didn't want to level to 30, people that wanted the free IP/RP so they don't have to grind for anything and people with between low and average ELO.... I honestly don't think general feedback should be taken with too much weight there =x

I wish everyone understood this idea. Everybody wants to change the game to the way they like it. I personally prefer games crafted by the creators, designers, and artists who actually make the game. I've said it before: You wouldn't tell Leondardo da Vinci how to paint the mona lisa.

Of course community feedback, input, suggestions, etc are all great! But this community has too demanding of a voice.
