i dont inderstand why sona/soraka/janna/lulu got nerfed to oblivion and leona/blitz are still there untouchables (i'm not saying they are op but i'm pretty sure that they can ebat all other ranged supports on lane easy after the 839478243724724 nerfs)

Because Morella is a punk. He despises the role supports play. All he wants are kill lanes.

Yeah they want to promote a more aggressive lane by nerfing all "traditional" supports. I still play Janna from time to time as she's one of my favorite support champs but the nerfs depress me. Aggressive supports like Blitz and Leona only promote passivity on the opposing bot-laner; it doesn't make both sides aggressive. So what's the point, Morello?

Janna hasn't been seen much because she doesn't excel at the 2v1 matchup that is very popular in the pro meta right now. If we get a switch back to regular 2v2s, then she will see more play.

Or... she got nerfed to hell along with Soraka because Morello is a punk.

^ Every team seems to be picking supports for the early game and especially for the 2v1 situation. Soraka is an excellent counter to Master Yi or Katarina when she's just stacking Mpen and chaining kills/assists. Janna's late game is one of, if not, the best, but her lane phase is abysmal.
