I know Riot doesn't want to raise the number of bans... but with 100+ champs there are more than 6 champs that "need" ban in a game. It's less about banning strategically than it is about banning because particular champs just shouldn't be allowed in a game.

Even if there's 5 Must ban champs... out of over 100... that means only one team gets to actually ban someone based on the team comp they want to run and strategy they want to employ because the other slots are taken by the ones that are ban/picked every game.

What can be done about this? Anything?

I've seen a strat where one team didn't ban anyone and picked up the leftover OPs... I plan to do that the next time I play XD

So, there are no must ban champs
you ban what is good against your planned team comp
the reason you see shen banned out alot is because people are too lazy to take his ultimate into account when planning team fights
same with nocturne
same with karthus
Morg gets banned cause people are bad at dodging skill shots
same with blitz
Malphite gets banned cause he exists in a grey area sitting just outside of the meta, making him very difficult to counterpick, because he could go a variety of route with builds/runes/masteries and be viable
None of them are broken, just champs people dont want to have to deal with

6 bans with only 6 picks is a lot more than 6 bans with 10 picks.

Do you play 3s?

Never seen a Noc ban. Never seen a karth ban. Never seen a blitz ban.

I'm assuming he's talking about singed/jax/darius/rengar/riven/shyvana/yorick/a few others.

You've never seen a Blitzcrank ban? I find that hard to believe. Aside from that, out of all those champions you've listed the only one I've ever seen banned is Darius. You might as well list lulu/sion/jarvan/ahri/rumble/mundo/lee sin.
