35-40% win ratio, 1% popularity.

You nerfed a champion that needs a buff. Took away aoe dmg and give her skillshot with tragic range, took away heal etc etc. Nothing else have to been added, this rework is a total fail.

Funny thing is, her win rate and play rate are still higher then before, ha.

She was at 2% pick rate and 37-41% win rate for several months when I played her so... Not really.

It's actually the exact same as it was before

...but new Karma is less unique as a character and lost the things that made old Karma fun, namely the baiting potential from her passive and heal. I would still consider it a failure.

So if it's exactly the same, then Riot failed with the rework...

Except now they're buffing her post-rework. Thus giving players incentives to play her more often. And giving her a higher chance of success.

So the rework was a failure. And buffs will fix her...
Why couldn't they just buff her original kit?

What would you have buffed on Karma's original kit?

Her spells already had relatively low cooldowns, the mantras were useful enough without being too strong, her scaling was alright, but her problem was that she had no early game value and she fell off late game.

At least, that's the problems I had every game I played with the original Karma. Having no easily applied CC besides a 10% slow until post-12, having a shield whose only special shtick was a damage AoE if she used Mantra, having a very short range cone spell...
