Yeah, now compare that damage to any other carry, including ranged carries - and it no longer seems spectacular.
Tryndamere previously had a critical damage steroid for a reason... His kit was built around having to get in an opponents face to deal damage... He has no hard cc or ranged attacks... Getting up close and personal has a downside - it makes you easy to focus, puts you in range of your opponents, and creates the situation where cc is extremely detrimental...
He was considered a less viable choice previously, before the "rework"... His damage potential was reduced, and his utility was not increased...
Can we at least call a nerf a nerf at this point, or are we still dancing around the "it was a rework" line?
