Sanguine Blade, instead of Bloodthirster, reinforces all bruiser meta?

Why no Bloodthirster? Think about it. Sanguine Blade is only good if you can land the attacks to farm it up, which AD bruisers always can. AD carries MIGHT be able to use it effectively, and AD casters definitely can't. Alternatively, Bloodthirster is about equal on all of them. Farming some minions isn't a big problem for anyone.

Sanguine Blade makes sense on Dominion, obviously, but I just don't see any reason why it's used here instead of Bloodthirster. Should this be changed?

And here I thought that the whole point of playing an adc was to land attacks....

It isn't meant to be an AD caster item, but it's fine for anybody else. AD casters losing that item is being addressed with new items specifically for them.

The entire purpose of TT is to be fast paced action, anything that slows that down (such as having to farm stacks every time you die) is detrimental to the mission.

Riot is promoting fights, not just staying in lane right clicking for 3minutes. . . Sanguine is a good substitute

Sanguine blade on ranged ADs is extremely good and there are no stacks to lose on death. Evaluate the item sensibly. IF as a ranged AD you can't land a series of attacks in a row, you are doing something desperately wrong.

It's indirect nerf to AD casters. Only champions with decent attack speed can utilise it fully.
