Ryze has no realistic way to flash farm, and extremely limited AoE. It's understandable that he'd be more scarce in team-oriented gameplay. Sure, he has brilliant scaling and single target damage, but that's not gonna save you when the enemy pushes you down in 25 minutes or less, and can appropriately communicate your location. Really, all it takes is coordination and common sense to deal with Ryze.
