He's bad...

Bruisers go top, Bruisers beat talon. Talon is bascially hard countered by ninja tabi, so almost any bruiser beats him (not accounting in player skill)

His real only place in lane is as a counter pick to mid. (Counters kass if he's good, a lot of AP he's pretty good at) but he has no "Official" place in lane... he's too easily shut down with the littlest of armor. That sucks, because I LOVEEE talon.

People aren't smart enough to pick him mid and send Rumble/Vlad/Swain/Kennen top.

He doesn't do well until 6 and it's not fun waiting 6 levels to be useful, especially as a melee who will likely be denied or ganked.

Because we can't send anybody but AP's mid. The meta God has decreed this....

He can counter most mid lane champions. The one second silence/gap closer followed up with the rest of his combo can decimate anyone who doesn't build armor.

However, his burst is best at around lvl 9 or so, so early armor can counter his early-mid game advantage.

Most AP mids beat Talon in lane. Talon needs a lot of help from the jungler early on.

But you keep going on about the Scary Evil Meta, I'm sure you'll convince enough people who also don't know what they are talking about, to your way of thinking.

@OP On the note of why you never see Talon anymore, he got over-nerfed, which gave him crippling mana issues if he actually wants to harass in lane.
