Everyone always complains about darius and how broken he is...which he is...how come noone ever complains about the most broken champ in the game fiddlesticks...fiddlesticks' ult does way more damage then it should, and along with being able to fear and silence for extended periods of time while healing for a ton of health he's unkillable solo...needs to be fixed

Fiddles is the unsung god of TT. It's not so much his ult as it is his silence and (godforsaken) 3 second fear. I've had a lot of success building him off-tank recently. (Boots, WoA, Spirit Vis, Ryleis, Randuins, BFT) He is ridiculously overpowered in ranked if you use him as a last-pick if you notice their team doesn't have any displacement abilities.

he is definitely overpowered if played well but he takes too much skill for him to be a common ban, thankfully. there's no room for error in his gameplay, unlike the popular "OP" champions in this map

If you don't like going against him, play him. Pick him up for the 1350 IP he is and learn him. I learned him and never regretted it. Seeing when the other team doesn't have any sustain AP champs is like.. Slapping them across the face when you pick Fiddlesticks.

I hate going against Fiddle on TT.

Recently had a match against Fiddle, Nocturne, and Shaco.

Such an annoying match.
I love not being able to control my champion for over half the duration of a teamfight (even with Merc's).

If one of them gets you, they all get you... no matter where you are on the map.

I emboldened the important part here.

Why would you 1v1 a heavy controller? He is squishy enough if focused, but 1v1 is a silly silly idea.

Overpowered implies that it takes no skill to play the champion well. If played well, many champions are as great a threat or a greater threat than Fiddle.

Countering Fiddle is as simple as purchasing tenacity, focus firing him down, and building MR/HP items on your bruisers or tanks.

Overpowered implies that certain mechanics/abilities/champions are unfairly strong, not that they're easy to use.

And if you're building all this tenacity/HP/MR just to counter fiddles then he's already hurt your team by making you divert gold from damage to counter one of three champs. Also if I remember rightly, even with tenacity and #/21/# masteries for extra tenac Fiddles' Fear at max level will still fear you for 2.2 seconds. That's a long time to have 3 guys beating on you for free.
