Yay, a response form Morello himself!
He got used recently in tournaments, but that doesn't ensure that he is fine. The only reason he gets used is because of his strong early game and how he can counter specific champions (hello, irelia) in the top lane. But compared to them he falls off so much lategame, you have to win the game early with him, or it will inevitably backfire to you and your team.
He could need a bit help for his really weak lategame, there are dozens of suggestions that change his strong early game in no way but would be a great help to keep up with other bruisers in lategame, I linked to them in the main post, be sure to read through some of them if you have the time!
I highly anticipate the new ad-caster item! I can understand if Riot wants to wait for it to see how it will ultimately work out for Renekton, bad itemization is after all one of the reasons for his bad lategame.
