Does anyone else think that tanks need to be revamped?

I have an idea... and here it is...

Lower all damage all tanks do. Make them support worthy but not dmg dealers. Use a modifier for minions so they can still push well. Make them tank WAY WAY better. The reason you would want tanks to tank would not be so much for heroes, but for towers. This would change the entire gameplay and strategy. If you had someone who could tank a tower (similiar to dota's siege heroes) then that would force people to stay on defence. Now all of a sudden you don't have to 5 man push mid to the win, instead you have to play attack and defend a lot better. Now the game isn't so much about "ganking" and more about cooperative team play in strategical map placement.

This would make tank heroes much more effective and much more useful, while also changing the all imposing 5 man mid strategy. What do you guys think? Revamp the tanks for siege options, or just up the affectiveness of armor? Anyways, tanks need to come to their own rather than just surviving longer than the squishys in team fights.

Actually, that sounds like a good basis for a new champion. poor dmg scaling, miserable attack speed, good armor/magic resist stats and a skill or passive that reduces tower dmg significantly. Don't do this to ALL tanks tho, that's just silly.

Or it makes sure nobody ever plays a tank because everyone will ignore them.

Cept when the tank can take out your towers in a matter of moments, you know, to win the game.

there's already enough champs that can tank a turret backdooring while the team takes it. A tank that can take hits from a turret AND a whole team is just terrible. it adds no strategy, just more backdooring (i'm not against it, but every push is just unstoppable with an invicible tank). Defending turrets is one strategy, a 5 man ganking is also another strategy, doesn't mean you have to remove one so teams have to resort to the other.
