I started this thread (http://forums.na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=4452848) on GD, but being a noob, I didn't realize that this would not allow our international players to give me their thoughts. So let's talk here. :)
Re-post of the basic questions:
With the continuing goal of making Support players have more meaningful gameplay and enjoy their choices throughout each game of League of Legends, we’re looking at making sure Sona feels as awesome as possible.
Things that are already pretty awesome:
Sona’s role as a buff/enabler support is solid and rewarding.
Sona’s ult is impactful and allows Sona players to make big plays that they and their team can appreciate.
Things that need to be more awesome:
Sona’s auras are powerful, but not satisfying to use, and create very little interaction.
Sona’s basic abilities don’t have as much skill expression as many other supports.
These are my current thoughts, as a dude who has been thinking about Sona gameplay a lot lately. I want you to tell me where I’m on track, where I’m wrong, and where I’m totally missing something.
Other things I want to hear from you:
What do you love about playing Sona?
What do you not like about playing Sona?
What decisions are most interesting to you when you play Sona?
What moments of a Sona game make you feel like you’ve made a play for your team?
Edit to fix my link.
