So if you think Xerath is weak, consider that you can almost certainly get better at last hitting, positioning, etc, to climb in elo. If a pro plays a champ in a tournament, you can bet that champion has strong advantages. Pros aren't stupid, they're picking the best possible champion for that situation.
Also there are some champs that you overlook because everyone only looks at patch notes and nerfs. But there are people who find ways around that. For instance when I started playing I only played Volibear top lane, and after playing for 200+ games I've discovered I can play him anywhere (except mid) decently because I've learned his abilities and how they work.

Riot NEVER listens to the important things that the community wants except for champion balance changes.

I'm getting sick and tired of waiting for you guys to come through with what we need rather than what you guys want to give us and what you think we need.
We won't miss you.
Bye.

fair enough, I'll actually read it right now...

Galio is one of my favorite mids and, Karma is my favorite support and carries your carry harder than taric.
The only thing about teams is you need to have those particular people there (or some subs, I guess); with the addition I propose, you can queue with randoms in a team-like fashion as well. I don't think implementing this queue would be too outrageous (lol, taric), since they already made the new queue for twisted tree line and that's worked out fine.

EDIT: Honestly, my idea came from how the OP had mentioned MMOs and I recall LFG generally having better success in terms of cooperative teams than this.

Just saying - there's so much being limited by assumptions on balance.
Your assumption is that because something that was relatively unused gets picked up and wins a game, then maybe the players have been missing something.

This is false.

What's really happening here is a lack of exposure. When something is practically ignored for awhile, you start to forget the little things about them. Exactly how much burst Xerath can put out tends to be one of those things, and he ends up killing you at 6. He does this 3 or 4 times in various lanes and you reach the point where it no longer matters what your AP champion is because it's fed, built the right items to kill things even faster, and you just can't keep up anymore. In a team with coordination, this just becomes even more true because full-out diving the fed AP becomes next to suicidal.

If you want a more extreme example, look at some of the attention Karma has been gaining recently. Karma was always in her optimal position on a bruiser team that's building lots of HP. Guess what the meta is right now? Karma still needs work, but she's currently enjoying a metagame that plays directly into her strengths and her lack of play prior to this has people completely underestimating her ability to "carry" a team of bruisers, especially if she can hover around 40% HP safely.

While this really has nothing to do with the actual thread at hand, I felt I had to point this out. One of my major contentions with you is that you seem to put too much weight on balance direction/concerns based on one pro tournament or even one game.

Unfortunately, I don't really have anything to say about this thread's topic beyond what's already been said.

Ok, now that I went back and actually read your whole post... I am forced to say I agree with you and you even merited an up vote. I said something along the same lines the other day actually, I pointed out that I don't think most people start out as ragers and trolls but that the more you play the more you become those things...

Yea it's a very good idea, I play WoW and i'm a healer and can't tell you how many people whisper me as soon as I enter that chat. Haven't played 3's this season yet so i'm not too knowledgable there.

My main account was banned until the year August 22, 2285. I was not sent an e-mail nor was I notified by phone or any other means of contact. Not sure how Riot operates... but I was threatened by a 'red' on a forum page that if I did not stop 'debating intently' on the forum than he/she would make sure my account is terminated/perma-banned. This is complete malarky and I demand justice.

EDIT: I like how I am INDEED completely innocent and had my liberties stolen by an egoistic 'red' on forum pages yet here lie the untargeted people down-voting me for what reason..? Innocent until proven guilty, and I've already submitted screenshot of the incident to Riot support. Hope the red gets fired for breaching contract.. I've literally not broken a single rule on the Summoner's Code and I've upheld the ToA. I think this is a rather unique case and should be taken care of immediately; not cast aside by some children who cannot comprehend a vocabulary larger than their own.

This might be the most civil thing i've ever seen on the internet!
