Why does no one play Rammus anymore?

I think Rammus potentially could have a spot in the support role. His jungling just feels so weak, he's obviously not an AP or AD carry, and I don't know how he fares as a solotop.

However, as a support, if you level something like E-W-E-Q-E-R through the first 6, you might be able to shut out the enemy ADC. I dunno though. You'd need a lot of assists so you can build armor and not just pure gold items.

And, I'd only want to be picking him later in a draft pick after the enemy team has shown AD solotop and AD jungle to go with the ADC.

Thought:
Uh.. 3 second taunt in the mid - late game on your AD carry is nothing to laugh at. No reason? The only reason why you wouldn't pick him is how easily he gets counterjungled.


3 second MELEE taunt. No instant gap closer. WIth how ridiculous kiting gets these days and how retardedly powerful exhaust/flash are he'd be lucky to get off one good taunt past lane phase the entire game.

His jungle is also too slow and boring to play

I've had to deal with someone playing "support Rammus" while I was the AD carry. The entire laning phase was us getting poked by both their support and AD as Rammus powerballed in a warded bush and proceeded to -not help me at all-. He can't protect me from damage with a shield (Janna, Lulu), he can't heal me or sustain me at all (Soraka, Taric) He can't poke them down from a range at all (Sona) And he can't hard initiate right away (Leona, Blitzcrank). There is no reason to ever play Rammus in the support role when these other choices are both better and scale better into lategame without being as gold dependent.

Nomnom hes fun to play basically full tank so you never die and taunting, knocking down towers. He cant jungle and his
spinning move just annoys me how it just STOPS when you come withing a 50ft radius of a minion. I think they should at
least make his power ball not stop at minions. Hes still worth the money i liked him hes easy to play. Didn't you try him
during free week?

They nerfed his jungle too hard.

He's still a great ganker and initiator, but he's just so unsafe.

Hes a lot like Amumu, if you can jungle safely you will be godly later, but good luck jungling safely.

Funny thing, Amumu clears faster and his ganks are better.
