Orianna is a champ very original and very fun to play, but still, she needs some small fixes to be a real competitive mid. I am making a poll in LoL EU West forum, to try to make riot see this. If you like this champion, it would be amazing if you help me support it. For more info, read the thread: http://euw.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=567738

Thanks 4 your time!

Perhaps we could have a discussion about it here to rather than the EUW forums for those that don't have accounts.

Yes, very lackluster champion. Not very strong in terms of damage, pretty much unable to be a viable support, she has great utility to a team but not strong enough to be considered a desirable pick. Hopefully they undo the nerfs and allow her to be a strong laner as before. Maybe increase her damage, slightly and leave the range untouched, who knows

I made the poll on the EUW forum since i tought it was the best place for riot to hear us, but i am not so sure. I think the damage is ok, except for the ultimate, however an increase of the range and on the ball's speed will make orianna much more pickable. It is well explained and proposed here http://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/oss57/some_orianna_changes_i_wanted_to_suggest_what_do/

I disagreed, she is fine as she is. Her range is even with the nerf pretty long. She can also be a great support, I don't know why you think she is medicore. She is medi-core ap rating but in trade-off of her Cd's, utillity and still that good range. And then I don't even count her Inniate.

She isn't really a viable support pick. Her utility is much weaker than Janna or Alistar if thats really what you're looking for. I'd even say Fiddlesticks or Gragas have as much utility as her (even when played as support).

Also her AP mid is pretty weak, especially against champions that can push the lane; i.e. cassiopeia, karthus, sion, morgana, etc. She isn't really able to keep up with their push and is forced to fight under her turret alot. Aside from that her mana costs aren't exactly the best, even if you can get blue buff at ~8:00

I think she is an extremely viable support pick... and just fine the way she is.

A team chose her in Kings of Europe, she can't be too UP :/

Ehh. I don't know a ton about Orianna as I've barely played her so far. She's on sale and I considered buying her but idk. I never see her play anymore, but last time I did a week or so ago she completely stomped face.

As for her supporting though, I don't think so at all. Maybe a counter pick for mid/solo top. I feel like she's weaker than other ap mids, but her zoning is amazing still. But like I said, I don't know much about her.

If she is supporting, maybe it would work for an aggro lane bot. I didn't really think of that a lot, I feel her sustain is lackluster but her zoning enemy ad carries in bot and slow, shield and ulti flip would probably make a good aggro support.

She is still pretty good. If you throw her ball behind the creep line in mid you can zone the enemy unless they want to take a really easy to land attack -> dissonance. The worst part about her imo in lane is how slow the ball moves. Makes it very easy to dodge if you try and hit someone at max range.
