People realised she's not the end-all-be-all of top lane. She is strong but has her counters.

When Riven gets countered, she gets countered. She relies on snowballing her lane or getting good farm.

Because Riven's good in lane, but bad in teamfights, and has ridiculous scaling if fed, but **** scaling if she gets behind. Like Darius... but 500x worse.

I used hear GD complain about Riven all the time. I haven't seen her in any tournaments and I have seen no Rivens in ranked for over 70 games.

No changes at all.

Edit: A lot of meaningful suggestions, but power creep has really killed her viability. She used to be one of the most annoying tops to gank since he has an aoe stun a dash + AD scaling shield, and a weird gap closing knockback.


Riven was never really good in tournaments. She is good in solo queue, and that is all.

Riven works well against uncoordinated teams. ( solo Q )
but she can be shut down...

riven is like kat, or even stronger, EXTREMELY OP in pub ( unorganized match ), but no so much in competitive ( where people actually protect ADC )

some champions are just like that

What's funny is that Riven was FOTM for a while and GD was filled with "nerf Riven" threads. Then she fell out of favour when people figured out how to beat her and the pros dropped her.

WHat we have is the classic nerf bandwagon cycle. A new champ comes out, some people play her well, general population hasn't figured out her counters yet, scream "nerf" on forums, then she either gets nerfed or ppl figure out the counters and she disappears from pick/ban list and becomes consigned to the place where all unviable champs reside. Hopefully, Riot might notice and buff her.

She's seeing less and less play.

Nerfs won't be justifiable anymore or she might end up like Tryndamere (who?).

Riven is good in solo q but heh...there are better choices for solo top.

in this thread, people trying to protect riven even though she's still mechanically broken.

Face it, she's going to be nerfed after this tournament simply because of her solo queue dominance, whether or not she's good in tournaments is irrelevant.
