Astronomical AoE: check

Touché my friend, touché.

But, Syndra is way harder to play and labd the stun than Veigar and Veigar has probably double of Syndra's single target burst

However to be frank 90% of the time the damage Veigar does to a single target is overkill.

Syndra's stun has more range, is a LOT easier to stun and gets even easier if you set up for it, and difficulty is never an issue if you master/learn to play the champion.

Plus, there's no difference between doing 300% of a target's health and 150%, they're dead either way.

Syndra probably has even more AoE too since she has 3 abilities that are AoE as opposed to Veigar's 1.

You must be the true Jesus because whenever I play Syndra I miss attempted stuns about 27 times per game (I dont play her often btw) as apposed to Veigar where you can almost never miss if you have half a brain then you just press Q and R, no skill required, twice the damage :D
Thanks for the sig Emi!

That doesn't make any sense. If anything, Veigar's Event Horizon is one of the hardest stuns to hit in the game. Granted, it's fairly huge and you can get it with practice, but still, Syndra's Scatter the Weak has to be one of the easier stuns to hit. I literally picked up Syndra for the first time ever a couple of weeks ago and hit her stun consistently. It's not that hard. You just line up your target with Q and immediately E. Problem solved.

If you want a super easy champion to play, don't play the people with no mobility and no escape mechanisms (i.e. Syndra and Veigar).

If I helped you, click that +rep!

Guess its just personal preference, anyways, I make my exit from this thread now.
Stay classy San Diego

Veigar's major issue is his early-laning phase and the fact he's a one for one champ. After he bursts, he's virtually nothing and that's what makes him an overall poor pick.

Not saying he can't win games but he's very underwhelming atm.
