So if they want to nerfbat Alistar out of oblivion, they will just go ahead and do it. It really sucks. He was a blast to play with.
I really hope that's not the case. Why wouldn't they want to see him in tournaments?

He is one of the most action causing champions in the game.

I guess it's more fun to see Cho solo top and run away from ganks all game...

And he's not broken. He's solid. He has some tools you want on any team. Thus, he will always appear in tournaments.
And with every nerf he also gets less frustrating to play against.

I agree with this he was hit really hard on his R and it becomes pretty useless until max rank because the damage it reduces isnt enough.

Nerf lane sustain, said Janna and Ali are ideal supports, then nerf Ali again and again until he is no longer fun nor viable, wtf?

Every properly played champion is frustrating to play against. The anti-fun argument is only valid against facerollers that have flowchart gameplay.

Somehow I have the feeling you're right...sadly.

Tryndamere and Poppy can tower dive even better.

Katarina can also tower dive at level 6, just pop ulti and shunpo out.

Lee Sin can also tower dive and knock you back out so you are no longer in tower range.

Caitlin, Kog, Corki etc. don't need to tower dive due to their long range poke.

I think it is safe to say that Alistar is not unique in his ability cause grief even when tower hugging.

It is also weird since Riot wanted a more dynamic game and as such tower hugging should not always be a sure fire way to stay alive.

They are trying to prevent you from building him pure ap and nuking like a caster yet being tanky as **** with your ulti, now going full ap builds or similar style builds will hurt way more on your tankyness.

Or you can stop trying to be a carry with him and build him tanky anyway and disrupt fights like he was meant to be played

I hope Riot doesn't expect anyone to buy Unchained Alistar. I don't even understand why this nerf was needed. They already nerfed his ratios immensely. It seems like Riot wants most champs to have only one way to be built/played.
