Orianna: A Wonderful Balance

 

Very recently, I started playing Orianna on Summoners Rift. During my time in the mid lane I began to realize just what a unique experience playing Orianna is. Looking at her champion page, one can note her difficulty rating and it sure seemed intimidating to a silver player (me). This however, should not be a reason to shy away from her. Needless to say, she’s among the best champs in the game. Of course this is nothing new, as she is played in the competitive scene quite frequently. But there are many things in her kit that make her incredibly unique. 

1) Balance: Everything in Orianna’s kit is perfectly balanced. Success with her in lane depends on how well you can manage your trades and how well you can escape and block off damage. Her Q provides a great harass tool in the form of poke damage and her E makes it possible to out trade your lane opponent. What’s more significant is her W which is both a defensive and offensive skill. The AOE damage makes it possible to farm and harass while at the same time enables you to dodge skill shots. Not to mention the utility is provides when setting up or escaping ganks. All of this is balanced by the significant mana cost on her abilities and her positioning. With Ori, you must have flawless positioning. Are you trying to poke out your opponent or are you trying to maximize your creep score. All this means that you must have a game plan with Ori and execute your moves while at the same time plan out your next moves.

And then comes the team fight, where Orianna really shines. Positioning is more critical than ever for one pixel can separate great success from total demise. The amount of damage and utility that Orianna brings to team fights is incredible but again balanced by how well you can not only position yourself but the Ball as well. Because of this, Orianna’s team fight experience is like no other. Not only do you have to concentrate on your damage output, you also have to focus on supporting your allies all while juggling the Ball. It’s insane.

2) Poetry in Motion:  Every movement of Orianna’s character model and attacks are poetry in motion. And so is her play style. The  way you weave auto attacks in between spells is a thing of beauty. And we can’t forget the frightening Command: Shock Wave. Seeing the enemy team spin around uncontrollably as their health bars disappear is one of the greatest feelings in this game. The way the ball moves to deliver oblivion unto the enemy team, amazing. Seeing Faker, Toyz or Hai play Orianna is not enough to understand the true beauty of every attack and power up, one must experience it first hand. But like a true poem, not void of drama, missing a Command: Shock wave is one of the worst feelings (guilty of missing some myself =[….)

Orianna is by no means an easy champion but she is a pleasant experience. I’m personally happy that I gave her a chance and hope to master her to the best of my abilities. Finally, I really want to thank the person (or group of people) that came up with her kit, overall aesthetic and play style. She is truly unique and satisfying, something different. Try out Orianna if you have the chance and if you’re a seasoned veteran, stop and appreciate how great of champion she is. Now if you’ll excuse me, time to play some normals and continue to learn Orianna. 

See you on the Rift.
