Except for the fact that you can't shut down darius ever, because of his ultimate. I will never forget the ranked game where I was 5-0 against a Darius in lane by 17 minutes, with twice the cs (I was Xin Zhao, mind you). At around 19 minutes there was a fight over dragon. Darius gets a triple kill with his ultimate, and then promptly carries his team to a 32-minute victory, finishing 13-7, and this was an AWFUL Darius. The rest of my team hadn't fed, we finished the game ahead by 8 kills (despite losing), because in subsequent team fights, Darius just got kill after kill. In the final fight, around Baron, he got a Quadra-kill.
Darius will always be able to do massive amounts of damage in any teamfight because of his ultimate (and passive), and is able to do so by building tanky. This, coupled with the fact that his ultimate is the only cooldown-refreshing ability in the game that can't be countered by building Armor or MR, is what makes Darius overpowered, and is what detracts from the fun of this game.
