@RIOT, why does every new ability need to do 10 million things?

I've noticed a trend in newer champs, most of their move set do several different things.
Jayce = do i have to explain this one?
Draven = knock-aside + slow, movespeeed and attack speed buff that resets wiht a bouncing axe minigame
Darius = On hit attack and movespeed slow that lowers cd based on prior hits, AoE pull that gives passive armor pen, single target nuke ult that resets on kill and scales with prior auto attacks
Varus = Auto attack steriod that can be proc'ed on enemy's to deal damage based on spells cast, AoE nuke slow with healing reduction, long range skillshot snare that spreads

I could go on for almost every recent champ. Why? why does every champ need to have a whole bunch of ability's with side effects? Is it just to make them more interesting to play? To sell more? I mean complex ability's are fine and all, but why does every single new champ need it? It doesn't even raise their skill cap most of the time, it just makes it so newer champs are harder to balance due to all their side effects.

so you spend $15 on the new champion and their skins, and in 4 weeks they will nerf him into the ground and release another one just like it.

if i was a new player who just joined this game, yes i would. Note that newer champs aren't even particularly difficult to play, just over complicated,

because they are more fun.
They have a LOT of older champs that have simple abilities *wukong, annie* so ether they rehash some old ones or add a bunch of cool ways to get off those abilities.
I prefer the latter.
