Kinda stupid that he's either first pick or ban(For over a year) And before that, He was first pick or ban for about a season and a half straight, and the team that gets him wins teamfights hands down no matter what.

Riot has been baiting nerfs, then retreating their attempts.
I honestly think Amumu is overpowered.

Almost three years of solo queue domination by now.
Played a lot in competitive scene.

Then you ask why Elise is being left alone and Hecarim is getting a huge nerf.

What he needs? He has already counterplay on early game (taking his jungle xd), reducing his W damage maybe? Increasing it mana cost? Because is hard to balance some champions whitout breaking them

IIRC some veteran players have cited that he's a top 5 win ratio champion consistently in every season.

Except players know his weaknesses. He's usually a well protected jungler by his team. Even in spite of this massive weakness to his early jungle, he dominates. It's really to the point that you must shut down his first blue or be punished for it. And that taking blue does more along the lines of "making the game even" rather than giving you an advantage.

I'm still confused as to why they'll nerf some things within weeks of it being discovered, but leave Amumu untouched for years now.

He hasn't been banned and picked every game for a year, only since close to the end of Season 2. The newer S3 meta hasn't done wonders for him, but he still does well in the right hands. Sightstone was also a very large indirect nerf, so they need to be careful that he doesn't become another Sejuani. The ult radius nerf is pretty substantial as it actually does knock down that teamfight presence he has a good amount. Also, you can autoattack and whatnot in it now, so all it really is is a snare.

Tl;dr Amumu has been indirectly nerfed already, they need to be careful not to overdo it.

It's a kit problem, mostly his ult. They don't want to nerf or rework his ultimate, so he'll never be fixed. He's not the only champion where the problem is in the kit, not the numbers.

and Amumu is not one of them.
Taking his jungle is not that easy, and requires more risk from the enemy team, and isn't even as rewarding as it seems.
He needs to have reduced bandage toss range and AOE ult radius, He also deals a bit too much damage with his Q.
