I see people saying she needs buffs, out-classed, etc etc but I don't see it...

I've noticed myself even being behind in lane, able to win trades, and the sustain you get in lane is insane, better than Lee sin. Once you get bork you are set to win lane, also much like vayne the later the game go's the higher it is in your favor.

Can someone go into detail about how Irelia sucks?

She's a bit better now. Sucked massively at the start of S3

Morello would say the reason is that if she's buffed a bit, she'll be too strong. But she's a bit on the weaker side now.

The tough part with balancing her right now is the fact that she can build full tank and still do fair amounts of damage with the passive True damage. So if they lower the True Damage, she'll be not that great even as a tank. If they buff other things of hers, she'll be too strong.

She's just like every other champ, if you are good with her then she doesn't suck, but when it comes to a certain level of play where you are evenly matched in skill against your lane opponent Irelia is at an extreme disadvantage due to having no escape and almost all of her damage comes from autoattacks, which are countered by tabi, dorans shield, randuins, and frozen heart. There is just simply too much itemization available against autoattack reliant champs, and on top of this she needs farm to get going as she is fairly level and item dependent.

She was nerfed because how strong her items were in S2, on top of what she gets for free in her kit. Going into S3, attack speed items got hit hard, Triforce was horribly outclassed for the longest time, and she didn't really excel in any of the major "League of Item" 'metas' that occurred while Riot tried to figure out how to balance the mistakes they made. Now that some of her major items have been rebuffed, she isn't that bad anymore. If anything she's just an average melee bruiser, stuck being outclassed by ranged alternatives and champs with insane initiation ranges.

Her itemization had taken a big hit
She's probably due for a comeback soon with the phage changes
