You also don't ban Kayle at all. Which seems pretty funny to me. No one thinks she's good lol.
You're saying you get away with leaving Kayle legal? I ban her almost every game, unless my team is freaking out about Heimer in vent or something.
The way I see it, Xin is an auto-ban. If I have first ban, I ban Kayle, so that if the other team thinks they can get Xin first pick and leaves him legal, I ban him last. That leaves Heimer available for first pick, so it's a little rough. If they ban Xin in the middle, I'll ban Heimer last. If they ban both Xin and Heimer in the middle, which I've seen a bunch of times, I'll usually ban Soraka or Taric, depending on who's picking 2nd with me and which of those two champs they want to play, if either.
All of this is based on the fact that I don't have access to Xin and I don't really want to play Heimer.
Anyways, I'm shocked that people don't ban Kayle more in your games, Elementz. She's obviously top tier, and a game changer.
The reason I don't ban Shaco ever is because there are lots of carries to replace him with if he isn't used, so I'm not really hurting the other team that much by removing him. But there's only one Soraka, you know? There's only one heimer. There's only one Shen. You can't replace those characters with someone just like them. Shaco is more versatile than his replacements, but they out DPS him so it's a tradeoff that's not too hard to handle.
