Her strength comes from Hiten style, great innate sustain on top of 75 true damage per AA. When all Irelia needs to dominate is a Trinity Force and GA, you know you know you have a powerful Champ on hand (her passive plus Merc's is a nice addition as well)

I sort of figured it was an "OH WAIT, IRELIA IS NERFED INTO THE GROUND LOLOLOL MORELLO SUX" thread.

I'm curious because of one of my preferred champions, Shaco, and the ire he seems to have been treated with over time. Someone told me that there was a red post somewhere in which it was basically stated that he was nerfed for being anti-fun, which seems a rather strange concept to me..
It's largely based in superstition. They poke and prod the numbers by 5s and 10s until people play the champion always/never, and the cycle begins on another.
