AP Alistar that is.

1:1 Ratio nukes, natural tankiness, good farming with some AP on, good ganking ability, easy to get and keep stacks, leads team fights, feeds allies.

Why's he hated on so much?

More so in ranked, from what I've seen, but he's hated on compared to other tanks.

I get frustrated by ignite going through his ult in a big way (as it's his main way of surviving teamfights), and the 15 second base cooldown on pulverize.

Headbutt is 12 seconds and rarely can not be used without pulverize first.

Essentially, he gets stuck in a "dead zone" where all of his offensive options are on cooldown simultaneously, and stay that way for 7-9 seconds.

Eh, feels like a weaker hitting version of AP sion, with a bit of utility thrown in.

This, for the most part. I still rarely play Sion as I prefer the feel of Alistar and still being able to reliable initiate.

I've been playing alistar a lot in ranked lately, I build him tanky with aegis.

I personally find him a great tank built char since he brings dominance in fights as a frontliner and can also sit in the back and babysit carries if you have like a mundo or cho gath to frontline.

He is just not meant to be a nuker. Idk, I might give it a shot, how do you build him?

Sion's not a tank though, and his initiate has an effectively massive cooldown, as you can't initiate without flash.

He's still my main tank. The only thing i can't stand about him is his movement speed. It drives me nuts how slow he is.
