Why Do You Capitalize Every Word Of Your Thread Title When It's A Full Sentence?

Also, because she's INCREDIBLY risky, has relatively low utility, and doesn't even have a higher payoff than most other supports.

Because Thresh/Lulu/Sona/Blitzcrank exist.

Answered your own question, it's a title.

She also doesn't provide any sustain or additional support for the carry aside from the stuns. She is also easy to kite and if she misses her E then it's easy to dive back onto her carry.

Because she's an all in support, and competitive supports never build anything more than their boots and a Ruby Sightstone, so she would just explode every time she tried anything.

great pubstompers aren't necessarily the best picks for organized competitive play

Most supports are capable of poking. She's forced to all-in if she wants to do anything to the enemy.

Because of the all-in nature of Leona, it's a very risky affair playing her at the competitive level (setting up a jungle gank with Zac/J4/Elise is really easy, you just wait for the over extension).

Because it's a title. That's like asking why Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl is all capitalized.

Thanks for the answer, though. I was just wondering, b/c she's a pretty popular pick in solo queue.

Titles have every word capitalized except small words (specific name I don't remember) that include things like to, and, in.

Also, no Leona because she isn't ranged or has pulls. Ranged support means poking in lane. Blitz has pulls. Alistar (which isn't even used much) has heals. Leona just has all in which can easily be counter initiated with a good jungle gank.
