I remember not too long ago when the common bans were most of the AOE initiator champs such as Amumu, Kennen, and Galio.
The three of them are still very strong champs, and synergize well with any champ that has AOEs as well like Morgana, Zyra, Fiddlesticks, etc.
I always thought that the AOE team comp was quite... well... OP! If not for the fact that the champions are great, but also that it gives a team really great team fight potential rather then individual strength.

But this comp seemingly disappeared. I don't see bans for Amumu and Kennen lately. Morgana sometimes but not as often as she used to.

Lately, most bans are on initiators or "annoying" champs like Malphite, Blitzcrank (undersandable), Shen, etc.

What happened? Was there some sort of weakness to AOE team comps that was discovered as crippling? Or maybe I'm just not seeing teams that take advantage of strong AOE champs like Kennen when I soloQ?

That's the most irrelevant picture you could have posted. Unless Brock's dance has something to do with how to counter an AOE comp.

AoE team comp has a counter.
Even after all the nerfs, Global ult teams have no counter.

My guess, The more champs riot pushes out with annoying mechanics the more we are forced to switch bans.
