He has been getting through almost every game - the heck?

Edit: I clapped when Shen wasn't picked or banned during CLG vs Dig game

Because in tournament play, teams ban the other team's preferred champions rather than traditional bans.

Yeah, people are so scared of him in solo q, but that's really the only place he is that feared. In tournaments he's well dealt with.

No big deal outside of Solo-Q.

Also he's been nerfed to an extreme amount now.

Likely because the teams have been practicing their comp to not include him being that he's already permabanned as it is in ranked. So now they probably aren't picking him because they haven't been refining their strategies with him in the formula. Well that's my guess anyways, I could be wrong though. Also as others have said above me, there's a huge difference between solo queue and team matches - solo queue is often heavily divided and people can't be relied on to deal with things the way they should, whereas full teams know how to handle almost any situation.

Because there are to many other important bans to deal with first, also why a lot bring the argument that the ban number needs to be raised 1 or 2.

Shen's strength is split push. Teams have practiced beating split push. And it's easy to punish Shen for leaving lane if he ulti-ganks early/midgame. He's been overrated in pro play for quite a while.
