I wish riot would address this.
Whether you agree or disagree about how broken he is, there are probably more threads about him than anyone else. possibly more than the next 5 most mentioned champs combined.
On lolcounter, if you look up darius, there are thousands of votes for his counters, for both up and down votes.
people instantly FLIP OUT at the mention of his over poweredness.
it instantly becomes a "you suck you can't fight him" or "darius more broken than everything to break in the world"
So if riot would at least address this situation: is he broken? if so, how will you fix? if not, why do you justify his power, durability, lane strength, late game, and why his only weakness is kites?
also, the thing is is that Darius is anti-fun. If you're up and coming in this game, you probably don't know what's going on half the time, but hey, it's a game. People freak out hard sometimes when playing this and they forget it's a game. It's not only about competitive play, what about about those casual players? For those many guys who aren't tryhard ragemachines, sometimes they just want to have a match they can fight in. Most guys you can fight and sometimes you win, and sometimes you lose. But the fact that there's a character that can crush with such a low learning curve, it's not fun.
