Can you allow us to **** bricks for Renekton now?
Problem is that Renekton is already strong in lane, buffing him would just make him a nightmare. Also, CLG.EU runs him frequently in tournament play, so he's good enough for them.

Their passives.

Speaking of which, can we get an actual passive on Renekton?

Then accept some nerfs elsewhere for it.

If Renekton is fine for CLG,EU, he's more than fine for you.

Being strong in lane and being able to carry a game especially a long match is a different story. Renekton will hit a wall in late game if the match is not over early. As many have seen he cannot handle the likes of a Olaf which is a constant pick now as the laning phase ends if renekton isn't just insanely fed or even if he is he won't or cannot go the extra mile late game. I think until people see renekton be a constant pick in other regions and more of a tourney champ the debate will continue and also when riot will expand or reply to the many postings about him many will say renekton not prime time.

Last time I checked they don't win games because of renekton. Renekton gets beaten by most toplaners of equal skill level. All you have to do is stack armour vs him and his laning is finished. Everybody who actually plays him knows that even if you are 6-0, you still lose vs a 0-6 olaf post level 9 no matter what items you have. Same goes for Irelia, Warwick, Yorick, even Nasus (insert any toplaner). His cooldowns are so high lategame and his earlygame isn't all that it is made out to be when all the enemy has to do is sit at the tower and let his jungler gank, because renekton's skillset makes it such that you have to push as well. Even then, once the enemy gets chain vest have fun dealing 100 damage with non fury abilities, and with fury max like 200. During laning phase, he is good in the sense that you can go in and go out without taking damage, but bear in mind if you make a single mistake, or stay one second too long, then boom there goes half your hp (because your base stats are pathetic). And lategame is just terrible. You literally do nothing even with a high damage build. Basically:

1) Semi decent earlygame - easily countered
2) Ok midgame - Does well vs squishies but there are far better options (olaf, irelia, Ww etc)
3) Worst lategame ever

Agreed renekton was already handicapped in some ways. The change to atmas hurt him probably more than some that's for sure. Again I don't know what it is about renekton but it will be nice to hear from Morello or someone about renekton at some point.

All they have to do is rationalize how he gains fury and he will almost no longer need buffs. Also maybe make the armor shred on his E more accessible.
