During development, we actually had a very powerful version of Madred's called Tankbusta that completely destroyed the Bruiser meta (yes, it can be done!). However, we found that there was a lot of crossover between Takbusta and the S3 items, so we scrapped Tankbusta and brought over the S3 items instead.
BotRK is definitely weaker than Tankbusta, but we'll separate them out again and give TT its own replacement if necessary.
I guess I'm not really understanding how they are good against bruisers. Brusiers tend to have more health, but they also have more defensive stats making any on-hit proc effects do less damage.
Theres just something I'm not getting, cause I only got BotRK on brusiers on TT, especially for the spider guy and its slow for my trundle.
