Faced a bruiser Sona top today as Garen. Her poke was so damn annoying. It was like playing vs an AD/AP Nidalee up top. She had so much sustain, endless poke, and couldn't burn through her after she got her Giants Belt at all.
Massive lane bully...
Ranked game dodged:
In select: tbh the "chat" sounds like a bunch of 12 year olds scrapping in the playground. I am preparing to dodge anyway.
I get support role I ask for - no real surprise. Guy locks ADC and starts spamming very rudely that I HAVE to take Leona, because it's the only support he will lane with. Well, yeah, no. I politely decline and point out I didn't tell him what to play, and that I Leona isn't a support I play well. At which point him and 2 others start calling me a noob because sona is bad (didn't even counterpick myself or anything silly and I main sona) and why didn't I just L2P Leona. Really...
Also another surfacing trend is first picks who lock a random support without asking and start screaming at me when I either don't have what they want for a trade, or that I point out that I don't even own those supports (taric / alistar). I wouldn't dream of locking in a role without consulting the person I wanted to swop with, then throwing a hissy fit at them when they don't want my choice or don't have my character to swop. It's something I see often enough I fear it's becoming a "thing" though. If people want to trade with a support to avoid counters, ask your support first, don't just lock a random support without asking, and presume they have what you want. That ain't how it works.
Ahhhh Sona. Favourtie support by far. Get dat philo stone, and atleast another faire charm + mastery mana regen and you've got enough mana regen to spam all your spells into a Q+passive AA for massive poke on the enemy. All of this without going oom aslong as play smart.
By taking Q>W>E while getting all three at lvl 3 you can do so much dmg and healing.

Been number 1 in my division for 2 wins and still not up for promotion? In fact no-one in my division has been up for a promote for an hour or more...

How badly is Vi getting nerfed in the next patch? I know its still in the PBE, but it seems like they're hitting her hard, from base AD of 58 to 50, and the % on W. Anyone knows?
That next patch will bring about Garen, Taric, Riven and Vi nerfs, which is coincidentally the heroes i play most.
Anyway, even if you leave W on level 1, how is this nerf (2% of max health as phis. damage) is gamebreaking?
If you assume that target have 2k health at level 11 (mid game with sunfire) and 100 armor W will deal:
Pre nerf: 120 damage (66,6 after passing dented armor)
After nerf: 80 damage (44,4 after passing dented armor)
You can add AD scaling on W here, ArP marks+quints, ArP items and so on, but still, this nerf won't make Vi useless.
And since when bruisers started to be a pure DD? I always thought that Vi is picked for her disrupting Ult, ArP debuff, not being useless while skills on CD, but not for damage from W.

If you miss it/got blocked/enemy flashed away from it, you are fucked, and have only Ult to catch him, you don't have time to wait for Qs CD. Currently, you need someone else to keep your target in place (or your target don't try to get away).
