Even if you just create a new item that substitutes as a weaker version (i.e. 70 armour and 15% damage return).

1) I used to main Rammus until this disaster happened. And I tell you, he has feelings, too. Thornmail for him is like boots for anyone else. It's his precious.
2) All the Vaynes, Kayles, and Jaxes I have come against - I don't even. Even as Malphite with 400+ armour and 3k+ health, I just melt (Yes I am exaggerating, but it's still true. With no thornmail, they just focus my DPS's then when they're all dead they have no fear to attack me, and in due time I die).

riot pls

You're aware that ranged AD is currently the worst class in 3s, right?

At the moment I would disagree, but that is possible (with the exception of melee AD at least). But there are other methods that they could have used to make AD more viable in TT, such as simply weaken Thornmail, not completely remove it. Because there ARE some champions out there who benefit very greatly from Thornmail, whose usefulness is shaky without it, such as Rammus, Galio, Leona, even Cho'gath and Malphite. Especially when against a team of more than one ranged AD.

Ranged AD is so terrible on 3's, they removed thornmail so the tanks didn't have a hard counter to carries anymore, which is fair considering you can usually 3 shot them.

If you're playing Malphite with Randuin's and Frozen Heart... no ADC should even have a fighting chance if you are present to add Ground Slam to the mix. Those two armor items have always been superior to thornmail.

Also, Frozen Heart is arguably a better buy on Rammus because max CDR is so potent on him.

Rammus, Galio, Leona
These are very situational picks. They aren't bad, but they also aren't champions you should be blind picking.

Quote:
Cho'gath and Malphite
These two are exceptionally strong picks, but I can't say I've ever seen Cho or Malphite take thornmail over Frozen Heart.

I completely agree I used to main rammus untill i branched out a little and Malphite my friend is unstoppable you just have to learn your build but, yes Thornmail is to rammus as Guinsoo's Rageblade is to jax it really isn't fair
