Only similarity to lux is passive (not so similar, but kinda) and her E (it's a slow/speed up though :3)

I kind of had a similar thought, being a lux player, when I first read her skill set. Different, but meh.

She is not nessesary something new but also not a lux.
She is similar to her but lux focuses on direct hits and she should focus on ball passing by back and forth. Her learning curve is way diferent than lux too XD
1st game with her (unfortunatly had to go double lane) 1/10 2nd game was way way better and i was on mid.
Lux bases on combo. bam-bam-bam than long nothing while she is rather a consistent damage dealer.

Lux is competitive Oriana is more of a "fun" champ.

You can generalize that X is the same as Y on any champ. You can even say that Oriana is same as Xin Zhao... You will always find something similar. This is a MOBA game with over 100 champs? There has to be similarities.
Did i help you? Click that +Rep

You can't just say Lux is better. Orianna's barely been out. She has to establish her role in the metagame before you can say she's bad. Everyone called Irelia **** when she came out because people weren't using her right. Only once people master Orianna can you start making judgments.


Same thing with eve lol, people used to say she was the worst champion in LoL at one point

...how is Orianna comparable to Lux in anyway at all? They have completely different play styles. Are you saying they are similar because they both have a slow? Or because they both have a shield? Might as well say Janna Karma and Lee Sin are all the same too if that's your justification.

she has something that no other champion has... which is the ability to screw up positioning during teamfights at a safe range (unlike taunts)...

I mean, the shockwave is damn annoying. Don't see any other champion with such ability so far. So yes i'd say she's new.

EDIT: I wonder how much damage she can help this combo dish out...

lol throw in amumu and orianna?

trap them-> suck them in-> ashe arrow-> laz3r beam-> trueshot barrage.

I'd be surprised if anyone other than a tank could survive that.
