Did he suddenly stop being OP because nobody knows how to play him efficiently as a top laner?

He was never OP.

Everyone just thought he was OP when they started the game, because they were like, "OMG I CANT KILL HIM BCUZ HES INVINCIBLE"

When people get better at the game, they realize he isn't OP at all. That's probably your case.

He stopped being OP when people realized that they had ignite as a summoner spell =p

In seriousness though, I did enjoy playing top lane and jungle Tryndamere, but as far as a champion, he feels to much like an impromptu ADC wildcard. Sure he can build tank but people fear him for his team wrecking ability when fed, not for his tankiness, cc, or anything that contributes truly to a team fight. I'd rather have a good Tryndamere come shouting outta jungle then having him waste time top lane.....

he stopped being op when people realized they can silence him before he can activate his ult and kill him

Clearly you don't know how tryndamere works.

He stopped being op because he got nerfed to oblivion and since he was overplayed people learned how to counter him easily : kiting,ignite,not letting him farm do any of those 3 and you deny him, do more then one he's ****ed.

Tryndamere was never OP and is still extremely viable with the right team composition. Pair him with a Lulu and Kayle which is very viable now with Kayle being a beastly mid and you can imagine how the 3 ult combos would work out in a team fight. Tryn gets low, and bam lulu ult, now he is ripping apart the enemy team with them all slowed, then kayle ults him, he is still low life and doing massive damage, then he ults himself, still low life doing massive damage. Clearly a bit more challenging than other ult combos such as Katarina or MF ult in an amumu/sona stun, but equally if not more insane. Tryn can also wave clear and backdoor extremely effective. I'd like to see him used more in competitive play personally, but right now champs like Olaf, Kha, Shen, just bring to much to the team to pass them up.

Trynd was never OP. You just got enough better at LoL that the matchmaking system is pairing you with people that know how to not die en masse to him.

Trynd was never OP. If you used to play him pre-nerfs in S1 he was easy to shut down. He was a pubstomper at low levels because people didn't buy defenses and didn't know how to kite. He has plateaus in his build and you just had to capitalize on them and in lane he could get bullied hard. Also, with the game evolving CC became a must and that hurt his viability. Then the lifesteal nerfs came because "AD carries could get their hp back too fast" and Tryndamere died with that. The only reason he was semi-viable was because if you didn't ignite him he could heal himself to full with lifesteal. Now you ignite him he barely gets hp back and then you turn and hit him once after his ult to kill. Tryndamere's biggest problem is the game changed and his kit doesn't bring anything to the team at all and that is why until they rework him or buff melee AD carries in general (which all melee AD carries aren't viable) he won't be played and will suck.
