(Especially glass cannon burst mages, I presume.)
It sounds like you want nothing but tanky dps in the game.
Anyway, back on topic, I agree with Riot's logic- tanks don't need a superheavy MR item because it is such a massively hard counter to mages.
Tanks can still counterbuild mages, but they just have a harder time getting to the ignoring them durability level.
but, tanks SHOULD be the counter to burst mages. Tanky champs were the counter to akali,, leblanc, etc. Now a Leblanc would eat a tank in seconds even if that tank has MR in its build, because the game has so much more magic pen and the tanks have so much less magic resistance.
2 seconds fights are not funny except for the luls. Burst mages shoult NOT be able to kill in ONE burst, fights should take long enough so burst mages can drop their burst more than once per fight, THAT is interesting gameplay.
If a tank can counter a Leblanc, then who, an assasin? SO the whole game is reduced to who initiates first? Oh, my talon jumped on your leblanc first, she is dead. Look, now my leblanc jumped firsr, you are dead.
That is lame design.
