happened 2 of 3 games i played her. and the 3rd is the one where i stomped my lane but they heavily lost the others. i feel like it's something you can only do in diamond without people assuming you're trolling and going "yolo i'm gonna troll too"
stop beating around the bush and just name me.
And yes I will call it a troll pick. The day I see it work in the LCS I'll say "OK maybe it can work in certain situations".
It's a crappy pick compared to other strong top laners. I'd even welcome a Poppy before Soraka.
Also it's a massive difference between picks working between elo levels. Just because you see Meteos destroy on Nidalee jungle doesn't mean it's a good pick for jungling in low elo.

Actually Soraka is more of a "cheese pick", but that's almost equivalent to "troll pick".
Man next people will say Teemo ADC is great.
Nidalee was a random example I saw him play it once.

Meh I don't agree with the Raka argument. This is pointless.
I don't really know about Jungle, since it's less gold. But Soraka Top can work well. You're unkillable, you can dive in situations you usually can't, because of her heal. She can give more mana, heal, and bonus armor for teammates for even greater amounts because she builds more AP than a Support usually would when you get something like Chalice/Morello's and Rylai's. More AP also shreds MR with her Q. The damage with her E also scales with Mana, so Frozen Heart is a perfect item on Tank Soraka. Despite she being a wake laner, she can push really quickly and abuse the right match-ups if played correctly. The problem is getting her through the laning phase and that she can't really initiate fights as much, althought Rylai's slow on her Q can work decently. That's why it's something you probably won't see in competitive...that and she probably isn't good in 2v1 at all. It's incredibly annoying in teamfights, since normally you would kill Support Soraka ASAP because of her heals, but you can't because she's a Tank. Focus her and the fight is lost...then that Ulti Heal boosted by her actually having items. SOOOO annoying.
I know it sounds silly, since she isn't even a good Support really, but it's nothing like Teemo ADC. The only thing with that is Teemo scales decently with Attack Speed, but other than that, building AD does nothing for him. THAT'S trolling, Soraka Top isn't.

Doesn't really make sense to me that Cyanide wouldn't go full tank there. He's the teams entire intiation...you can't go that build on Wukong in that situation.
