Why does Riot want to nerf Lulu?

...yet continue to ignore Taric who while other Supports have gotten many nerfs hasn't been touched in forever. Seriously, wtf, why are we nerfing Lulu and not nerfing Taric who is played in half of ranked games and has a winrate of above 55%? Nope, gotta nerf the 47% winrate Lulu who is one of the least played Supports, she is the 7th least played.(I get she is played quite often in tourneys but you can't seriously think she is OP) Like why?? At least buff some of the weaker Supports! Here is a list of nerfs to Supports in the last few months.

Sona- nerfed
Nunu- nerfed twice
Lulu- now nerfed
Janna- nerfed into people not even playing her anymore
Blitzcrank- constantly nerfed
Soraka- nerfed
Alistar- constantly nerfed until they gave him a slight rebuff but it hardly makes up for the nerfs
Zyra- nerfed(heck you don't even see her anymore since the nerfs)

...yet I seem to see a big lack of buffs. Considering Support is the least popular role in League of Legends why does Riot feel the need to punish the few people who actually are willing to play the role?

Cause the scaling on Pix went up? The range is 5-107, compared to being 87 at lv18.

Ya she gets less damage in the early game and late game she gets a little bit extra damage that won't affect anything because she will be played as a Support.

Blame the Asians. Don't forget that they are looking at the game as a whole instead of just NA.

Tourneys is what it's all about.

Sona did good in Kiev, got uber nerfed.

Janna did good in whatever tournament followed, got uber nerfed.

Lulu doing good in tournaments lately = incoming nerfs.

It sucks but it's Riot's take on balancing supports.

Also the winrate is hardly a indication of balance, Lulu is a pretty high skillcap support and a cute champion, which means she attracts a good amount of players but there must be lots of noobs Lulu out there.

Because they already released a new skin for her, so time to nerf her obviously.

It saddens me. Lulu is one of the supports that actually takes skill. All you have to do with Taric is stun, use shatter and ult and heal your ADC if they need it. Lulu has such skillful kit and this nerf it just stupid.

Taric is nerf proof like Kat.

Then where are Riot's buffs to non-played tournament Supports? It seems they just want to constantly nerf, nerf, nerf, them. One gets played in a tournament then they nerf it so a new Support becomes strong and they nerf that in the next tourney never thinking to buff the weaker ones.

Like in the past few months Nunu has been nerfed twice, Sona has been nerfed, Lulu has been nerfed now, Janna was hit with major nerfs, Blitzcrank is constantly nerfed, Soraka got a pretty big nerf, Alistar was constantly nerfed(he just got a slight rebuff but it hardly makes up for his nerfs) and Zyra was nerfed. Where are the buffs to compensate?? Heck ever since the Zyra nerfs you don't even see her being played at Support

And Lulu is only the 7th most played Support in ranked, she is hardly super popular and is one of the harder Supports to play, the only ones I'd say are just as hard as her are Janna, Zyra, and Nami.
