During development, we actually had a very powerful version of Madred's called Tankbusta that completely destroyed the Bruiser meta (yes, it can be done!). However, we found that there was a lot of crossover between Tankbusta and the S3 items, so we scrapped Tankbusta and brought over the S3 items instead.

BotRK is definitely weaker than Tankbusta, but we'll separate them out again and give TT its own replacement if necessary. Also note that this was the plan when we were launching TT. I don't know if they're still going to be on SR as-is, if they're going to get changes, or if they're scrapped from the map altogether.

When you say destroyed the bruiser meta, do you mean like thornmail destroyed or more like zhonya's ring destroyed.

Last thing I want to see is that ****ing Hatchet make it to Summoner's Rift. Completely ruins champions like Mundo, Volibear and Swain unles you make it an active with a cooldown like Executioner's Calling.

Alright, I'm bumping this thread just for all of you that didn't get it. It was Panzerfaust's Tankbusta. How ALL of you missed this, I don't know. He practically gave it away, I mean, look at his post.

Still don't believe me? A panzerfaust is a disposable recoiless rifle developed by the Germans during WW2 for knocking out.. Wait for it.. Enemy tanks.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panzerfaust

Go on then. Learn you some history.

EDIT: For those of you who don't feel like checking wikipedia, Panzerfaust literally translates to "armor fist" or "tank fist".

Because if they were allowed it will ruin the tanky bruiser meta that has been created.
