What we got:

Thresh/Leona/Annie being the only supports in the game.

I'm just as surprised at the number of people complaining that I chose to label Annie as a "Support."

Admittedly, she is basically a Support at this point, though it is a shame, especially given that she is Kayle's hardcounter, and has the chance to put an end to the Kayle FotM, if only people would give her a chance at Mid.

I dont even care what Riot does say about this, i just wish they would comment, especially given there are like 3000 upvotes lol.

They made these changes the entire focus of S4. Promised to keep a very close eye on how things worked out.

I know they can see that so many games have only the supports that didnt take a nerf (+annie). I know they can see that regardless of support champ most summoners are not building AP but usual support items.

I know they know all this, i just wish they would say something at all. Either we know and we are thinking about it, we know and we like it the way it is, idk, something.

This champion's too strong, reduce base damage and increase ratios a little.
This champion's too weak, reduce base utility so you do nothing for your team until you have a Deathcap, and decrease damage ratios because Deathcap on supports is OP.
Riot logic.

As a season 3 Janna main I agree with you in so many levels. Right now Janna's passive is horrible. Locket's active has a longer range. Also I find myself losing trades early one because of how much weaker she is in lane.
