I know I'm not 'exceptionally skilled' and teamwork isn't always optimal (or even 'above average') in my ranks; so I think it's simply the champion's built in power. The S3 changes are treating him very well.
I would say the same about the Bot lane Tier list simply because I trampled a Nasus down there today but I almost never play Bot with him (only doing so because there's be an unusual rash of people just outright refusing to Bot; even with extremely powerful Bot champs).
Sauron kind of stop doing those upgrades for now, until the item is balanced out for s3
I personally think with the new boots, Hecarim could even be considered t2
