A bunch of us play
Pretty much any game that exists under the sun, someone at Riot is probably playing it. Warmachine does shields pretty well, with the 'step in and take a shot' style shielding and the 'shields are weak to things that get around shields' chain weapon rules.
That 'step in and take a shot' style thing is the core fantasy that I think would be cool and fun! Really make you feel like a tank/defender. But I am obviously not a champion designer
