Ill try to keep this pretty simple, I'm just curious, with the current melee characters like Yorick, Gangplank, ect. Will be seeing any Olaf love anytime soon? I'm not trying to say Yorick or Gang are op but I can't help but feel that the current state of the game could allow Olaf to get back a little more of original power.

Yea I realize he is still pretty viable in high elo matches of played correctly however, I can't help but feel that compared to champions like Yorick and or Gangplank Olaf is a bit lacking in damage, lifestealing capabilities and durability, comparatively at least.

Does anyone else feel this way? Or is this just mainly because I have seen much high tier play?

I feel the same way.
Olaf has felt outdated for a long time now.

Although according to Morello he's in their radar. Hopefully he will get a few nice buffs.
The "45 minute Timebomb" doesn't even have that much meaning anymore in the games I played.

If you do not think Olaf is overpowered, you are not playing him right.

Or you're fighting competent teams.

Meaty/lifesteal DPS that relies on being close and has no gap closers to get to the whole meaty DPS bit.

Normals mean next to nothing when it comes to champion balance.
