This is assuming you are an AD build, which already puts you at a disadvantage. If you are focusing on attack, I doubt you have the mana to rift around the map which will keep you from being caught.
Kassadin can't just jump into a fight whenever, it has to be planned to hit as many people as possible with Force Pulse, then a strategic silence on their main caster/disabler, then rift walk away. If you pop straight in, you will get focused, and you will die.
I will agree that Rift makes Kassadin very viable on TT, but for none of the reasons you stated.
OK, here's what I meant, I built an AP kassadin with some CD so what I did was when i port in, i got the attention of a jax, who stupidly tries to follow me every time i port over the wall.
So basically, here's what happens:
1 I port in and start attacking their nexus, i catch the attention of Jax.
2 When he's about to do leap strike I port back out.
3 Jax follows me
4 I repeat until their nexus is down
As someone else said that the team would have killed me, they were in a big 2v2 crucial battle as all of our and their turrets were down. So if they did what you said, our team would still win.
