Basically Iceborn Gauntlet was meant for front line bruisers, however one ranged champion uses it too and that is Ezreal. Now T-force does do more damage and gives more stats, but No ADC should have a 1100 (mystic shot) range aoe 2.25 AD ratio slow. It also gives him CDR, some AP (scales alright), and a ton of Armor (lets him crush the opposing ADC). Basically a guy who was really hard to deal with when he had a RnG slow on t-force, is now inescapable and uncatchable. I mean he has a better flash and an 1100 range chasing/kiting machine.

The solution is simple, it is not modify the slow or the damage for ranged, simply just make it like tiamat/RHydra and make it melee only. First off Ez is pretty much the only ranged champion who uses it, and he abuses it. It was not meant for Ez, and Riot has tried adjusting the slow, but to no avail. Simply the best solution is to never let him get it in the first place.

Either make it melee or reduced effect at the very least. Ezreal, GP, and other ranged Champs get the bonus of having a ranged AoE slow, they shouldn't get the same strength as melee (look at Phage and its decreased effectiveness on Ranged, seems reasonable to me)
