He is still consistently used in ranked matches. If what you're looking for is an op champ for a default ban list on ranked matches, you're heading the right way.
You know, i do agree with you. i love the armored bear and he is a great pick that makes the game fun. I like his jungle and im happy with the recent buff to his attack speed that helps him get halfway decent clear times. i always have a fun time playing Volibear and im sure he has been used in ranked matches and has seen a decent amount of tournament play.
Besides the fact that his late game is amazing if you get a decent farm, im not asking for buffs that would completely change him. what I'm asking for are small buffs. 0.5-3.0 to his base armor, the ability to use his slow more often by a 1-2 seconds. the thing is, he is a decent
jungler and deals decent
damage. the entire opening rant was me comparing the numbers of other
tanks. hes not a tank and hardly a bruiser, he has to build to that. put him up against a ranged that has access to grievous wounds or ignite and how easy is it to shut him down? Even with flash AND using his Q you're still taking a decent amount of damage just to close the gap and add the ignite or grievous wounds to his passive, whats the chance you're going to get away from a player that knows what the're doing?
