Im currently diamond 5 in the east server, and played more than 200 games with Azir. After the nerf, Azir's damage mid game is just awful, I played a few games already post-nerf and I just can't do damage to anyone. I played with Lux against a Azir main in ranked, and I could go all in on him, get the kill and survive with more than half hp before level 6, after level six I still could go all in on him without even needing to hit my ult. Eventually, he went out from lane when he was 0/5. So please Riot, maybe Azir needs a nerf on his soldiers, but not that huuuuge damage reduction, you could nerf Q, instead of W.
