Then everyone stopped complaining as they realized he's not actually that great due to lack of good gap closer or ranged option.
This is actually why I LOVE playing Volibear. I don't get to all the time because he is easily countered by speed or ranged CC, but if you put a Shen in lane against me I'm going to laugh as I Q him out of his attempt to ult and then eat his 4k health before he can make it back to his turret. Most people build Voli in a way that I'd have to agree he's pretty useless. Thankfully this means when I build him most teams ignore me not realizing that late game I can pull nearly 30k dmg off his ult alone to a team. Voli is a sleeper team buster, and most teams don't realize it.
tl;dr always have hard ranged cc or else you too will QQ about Volibear.
