Should Riot use their Ranked ban list to know when to nerf/buff champions?
I just want to hear the communities opinion?

On one end, you should respect the communities opinion to know who they do not like playing against. If a champion is banned 90% of ranked games, there's probably a reason

On the other end. You don't want to buff certain champions, 'cause they're never banned, 'cause these champions are pub stompers, just counterable in ranked play.

Bans are merely champions that a captain finds un-fun to play with. It doesn't mean they're necessarily overpowered though.

I ban WW and Udyr because I don't want to deal with decent junglers :P. No, I don't think they should =3

I wouldn't base it off of bans myself.
There are champions that are/were banned because they were absurdly overpowered (Heimer, Shaco etc.)
And there are also champions that may not be overpowered, but are extremely annoying to play against (Rammus, Evelynn etc.) Both of which require you to be cautious during the laning phase, especially Evelynn, but neither of which I believe are overpowered.

No please. From what I can tell the banned champions are currently just the annoying to play against ones. Pantheon? annoying ****ing jump. Eve? annoying ****ing stealth and counter jungle. Malphite? annoying lane phase with his Q spam. Shen? annoying global ultimate. Shaco? annoying early game ganker. Amumu? annoying AoE ultimate. Rammus? strong jungler and amazing gankers from jungle.

There are quite a few champions that are banned a lot so Id say LoL is pretty balanced right now. I think there are UP or poorly designed champions but usually they aren't gamebreakingly OP/UP.
