The title pretty much says it all. And note that the why is the important part. What makes them worthy of being banned?

I don't necessarily mean draft either (if that makes any difference), just that they're worthy of being banned if they could be. I can't even play draft because queue times.

thanks

Sauron did update his Tier List though on his return, so that is up to date.

they are still ban worthy though, even if it's outdated, Urgot's changes were reverted back and Yorick got hit on his Minion heal on Minions he still can scare people away from lane. Jayce and Lulu haven't been touched and well Diana is sort of new. Kassadin got lower base damage but-20 damage is hardly noticeable compared with his i'm everywhere thing that defines him.

Wukong is seriusly ban Worthy because his armor reduction is a Targeted armor reduction meaning that everyone on your team benefits from it and it's not a small amount it allows tanks to be tanky dpsers, tanky dpsers to be really damaging and full carries to be walking nightmares of doom if you don't take them out soon. also when the Crushing blow+Cyclone combo together with a character that has enough damage it can sweep your whole team.

I'm not sure if Jayce is a must ban, but he's very strong top and bottom lane. He can gap close, kite, has steroid, has range, 20% hp dmg (more than poppy gets), has team speed boost, has brush check, has armor reduction, does magic and physical damage, a speed boost on his ultimate, and is naturally tanky.

The only thing he lacks is a global. He has mobility, damage, range, tankiness, utility.

The only really must bans imo are Kassadin and Urgot. Yorick is marginally close to it though. The rest I don't really care much.

Kassadin Kha'Zix and Nidalee are still your 3 must bans.

After that it comes down to what you know the other team can play as well as preference. Teemo, Urgot, Lulu, Jayce, Wukong, Zyra, Kayle, Brand, Maokai, Janna, Talon, and Leona all regularly see themselves being banned.
