If everyone in the game had full builds what was your team doing? Any ADC in the game should be able to shoot someone to death near instantly with a full build.

Lol @ "jax isn't OP"
Riven isn't OP because none of her skills are actually really good by themselves.
Q does little damage and the gap close is short and slow
W requires you to get close enough to use it, which is difficult without a good gap close
E's gap close is really short and doesn't shield much damage.
The ult is great, but she's still melee and the range is pretty bad for the single cast you get with it.

A good Riven is good because that player actually knows how to play Riven. She suffers immensely from a lack of range and gap close. Yea, once she catches up she can be a nightmare, but she's so easy to counter just by moving around and maintaining distance, which frankly, is a good idea for ANY tanky-DPS, 1v1 or teamfight.

How is Riven doing this any different from an Irelia/Udyr/Malphite/Etc from doing the same exact thing?

- Who doesn't have CC?
- 4 Gapclosers that reduce her DPS and add up to about the length of a max range Lee Sin Q
- At least her ult doesn't refresh on kill
- She has no sustain outside of shield

Xypherous already admitted Riven was OP.
If a champion is "perfectly" viable top-lane right now, they are probably overpowered.

That's what top-lane *is* currently right now given how snowbally the lane is.

This holds true for pretty much anyone who is viable top-lane as a generalist pick - and no, having one hard counter doesn't make you any less of a generalist pick.

ok if you want an explaination as to why she's not OP:

1. if she uses her skills to close teh game, that means the damage of the skills isn't hitting you.
2. She can be either a bursty AD caster or a good tank, going hybrid doesn't work as well as some other champs.
3. If she does not have a good early game, she will fall flat, and hard.
4. All her skills are AD, she has no magic or true damage, build armor and she falls flat
5. Xypherous said "snowbally" and that is not a word, which upsets me greatly.
