ap he have a burst dmg that can be cut to half by destroying his shield.

ad just works if he gets farmed (he can be ****ed by a lot of tops)

He's not viable because he's easily stopped by crowd control. You'd have to give him range to fix that. At that point, you might as well play an AD carry. He would have to be reworked to be an AD carry. Either that, or you have to completely rework his shield...but it still wouldn't stop him from being stunned, silenced, knocked-up or feared.

Edit: I forgot to take into account the fact that his stun is a lot of mana early game and his movement speed is agonizingly slow. He's got no gap closer which stinks when you're a melee champ.
I suppose you could rework him from those angles, but I feel that riot deliberately made him that way so that he wouldn't be completely unstoppable.

since when is he no longer viable? You have anything to back up those fallacies?

^^ above post are you kidding me? I think you can say that about ANYONE who isn't Tryndamere, Morgana, Olaf, etc

All champs are affected by CC. However some more so than others. Various factors can cause this.

For Sion, like some others champs, it's because the CC actually lasts longer than just the CC. Sion has no gap closer so even when the CC ends his dps still doesn't start again until he runs to close distance. Sion is doubly affected because he also falls into the category of champs that rely on Lifesteal for their survivability.

I would recommend giving Sion's shield some for of CC reduction or even the ability to ignore slows. However this would require nerfing the AP side of Sion for balance reasons. Though given the way the character looks and his ult it is clear Sion was intended to be AD anyway.
