He has a plethora of other issues too. Why does he HAVE to build CDR, I really hope the CD's are lowered a bit. There is literally no other way to build him if you expect to do absolutely any damage. A major problem is he has a "vicious circle" effect. He needs CDR to be useful, but that means he can't rush AD items that all his abilities except his ult scales from. He can't build AD items because he dies from Annies auto attacks, so he has to build Tank. Oh, wait, he is bugged. So glass cannon? Do I get lower CDs and sacrifice damage? What to do, what to do.

Honestly at first I thought he was super balanced, but that was because no one knew how to counter him yet. Then it became common knowledge he was bugged. His passive was changed from bonus MR / Armor to double fury under 40% hp. Ok, that's decent I suppose, but what about the fact that his fury generation was cut in half? Good thing I have to push the lane in order to get fury, which is ridiculous. I just don't understand how you can have a dedicated experienced team of people who specifically balance champions, but realize he was too powerful a few hours before his release? Was there any internal playtesting? This time around I think it would have been better to release him in the state he was shown and then tone him down. I haven't insta-bought a champion since LeBlanc, and for good reason. There is always some kind of problem with them on release. It hasn't changed since Lux.

TL;DR Renekton sucks hard on release and no it isn't "because I haven't learned him" it's because he is broken and bugged.

He is already outshined by Xin Zhao. So up. While they are totally different champions, Xin seems to bring everything to the table and is widely regarded as the best melee in the game.

You'd think so, but TF red card has been bugged for god knows how long, and Riot shows no intention of fixing it.

I can do very good on a broken inline-skates, because i'm professional at it. Doesn't make it enjoyable, or fun.

Next patch, yeah, wait 2 weeks to finally play that champ you bought?
He'll be free that week too, so you'll be competing with everyone else to play him. Better to wait 3 weeks.

All this thread makes me do is laugh a bit

"OMG I instantly die when focused on my melee dps champion"

Well duh, It works like this for "any" melee champion, I believe Guinsoo when he says there is no bug, I have played against several Ren players that stacked tank and did fine. Building a melee AD champions requires a delicate item build stacking defense and offense, too much offense, and you drop dead, to much defense and you don't do damage.

Personally, I think all of Ren's problems stem from him being a melee champion, and this games bias against them.
