Black Cleaver Needs to Be Nerfed
Now Riot I have never complained about anything in this game being overpowered or had any problems with items in the past but last night I was playing a 3's ranked match, was playing amumu and got pretty tanky but found out that there was no point in building armor because the enemy team had completely stacked black cleavers, a wukong and a nocturne stacked as many as they could. Now I switched my build from being tanky to ap because the point is stacking black cleavers will drain a tank in seconds and becomes pointless to even try to tank. Check out the team CaseoTeemo. They've done this black cleaver stack for there past 3 games. I'm assuming the tank on the other team felt the same way I did because it's impossible to get anything done against someone who when has 4 cleavers has 200 extra ad, 40% cd max, 60 flat armor pen, and to top it off a passive that lowers your armor by 7.5% for any PHYSICAL damage that had been dealt stacking to 4 times, I don't know if that means only basics or if its also rivens q or nocs q or anything like that but all I can say is, Riot if you dont fix this item there will be no variety just one item being built on every bruiser. Please Nerf the Black Cleaver because all its doing is ruining tanks and the options of different builds because they won't work against this new meta that I'm sure will happen. A suggestion to fix this is to make the flat armor pen and cd a unique passive than this item is balanced again thank you if someone actually does read this and take it into consideration.
