quote InuyashaI do like Karma mid, as she's easily one of the best farming champions (I can get ~200 @ 20). She's also one of the less susceptible champions to ganks, especially if warded up properly. The only reason I can think why Karma isn't played mid much in ranked is because her roaming potential isn't great, and she only has one damaging ability. I'd recommend playing her against Nidalee in mid though, since Nidalee's melee form gets ruined by Karma (hence why I wouldn't recommend picking her as a support vs Nidalee).I've faced countless Karma's as support or mid since the re-work, but she's a joy to play, and I'm surprised I don't see her mid more often against assassins. Her shields, mobility, ability to heal/root, and just overall damage is fantastic.
quote InuyashaDoes this mean you'll get a name change to Best Karma NA and only play Karma?Really never knew how much fun Karma's rework was until just a few games ago. Leveling up my smurf and it's Karma free week, so I take her as support. Level 1 bring the enemy Nami to half health through trading, and level two get a double kill, although I did have ignite.

quote captain booMorgana isn't a great support, but in the Sivir lane, she has more to offer than Karma does. As we've both noted, she's a strong counterpick but not a great partner pick. Personally, as an AD carry, I'd prefer to have Morgana's 2-3 second snare + 1.5 second stun + cc invulnerability than Karma's hyper mobility and kiting.But Karma is a better support than Morgana in almost every way. Karma+Sivir is so mobile it's funny.
Karma does do certain things better than other supports. She's competent by herself and her build is so flexible that it's unreal. As a support, she can build meta things like Shurelya's and Bulwark, but also excels with Twin Shadows, Athenes, Rylai's, and even Iceborn Gauntlet. Her kit and playstyle is highly adaptive to special circumstances in any game.
Karma keeps my interest for so long because she is the best support of the support-mages and is extremely versatile with complex mechanics and incredible capability to pull of elaborate plays.
Karma's E2 is probably one of the best spells in the whole game. Defiance is one of the best supportive spells available to any champion.
Karma is also the best support at kiting. She's so good at it that she can help your entire team kite better with all her AoE slows, snares, and speed buffs.
