Well, that's fine and dandy if you make it to lategame intact. She's an unpopular pick now from being a previous top pick because Riot over-nerfed her, plain and simple.

Excellent wave-clear with tornado for pushing and an AD steroid on shield for pushing tower - I think Janna's actually pretty great at 2v1. She also won't be popular in a 2v2 context because her laning is outshone by Blitz/Leona/Zyra.

Her late game is her ult. That's it. Her shield is like one shot from an ADC, and her q is all right against channeling ults but that's it.

Morello says Janna is still fine and viable.

Shows what he knows.

I guess the only one performing as intended ATM is Taric, maybe Nunu.

Edit: Didn't include Leona, Blitz, Voli, etc because they are closer to Zyra than true supports, they CAN support, but I don't think they ARE supports, most are actually tanks.
Or...you know.
They are both?

Alistar is a tank with tons of CC. Aka, tanky support.
Taric is a tanky support.

Leona IS a tank, just with CC.
Most tanks have CC that is how they tank.

Nami is just salt to the wound, her ult and Q are both knock ups. Nami's ult size (from what I've seen) is damn ridiculous, you could just baron and ult down the river when they come...

Lulu took away Janna's kiting role, they nerfed Janna's ad buff on her shield on the same patch they released Lulu which is no coincidence. Kinda the same deal with her Zephyr compared to Glitterlance and Lulu's instant heal opposed to Janna's channeled one albeit AoE.

Theres just nothing particularly advantageous in picking Janna anymore.

While Mistake the team captain of TPA says otherwise and is also his favorite champ, but Morello is right and the team captain of S2 champs are wrong.

About the only thing is the passive move speed buff... which lets face it is not enough to counteract the utter thrasing janna faces in lane.
