I hate to be one of those people who complain about the lack of innovation in new champs, but this trend has been going on for a while now. Are % health damage abilities and mass hard CC the only ways you can come up with to keep champions relevant late game?

I also do not like % hp autoattacks. Makes me sad.

Vi will be irelia 2.0.

I was starting to notice the trend, too.
It's a shame. Those abilities are really annoying.

Irelia 2.0? Riven 2.0? Neither of these have %hp attacks...I am confused.

except VI is all physical damage.

Armor FTW (supposing they ever get new black cleaver under control)

Theorycrafting like you guys are doing is going to get you nowhere. In the end you have no idea if the champion needs the %health, you have no idea whether it's going to be any good on Vi, and you have no idea how to simply "shut down" a champion you know nothing about.
%health is simply a good mechanic. A huge problem with this game was the fact that a lot of people were too innately tanky and would buy 1 tank item with a bunch of offensively based items and be unstoppable. This game has been called the game of Bruisers for quite some time and honestly bruisers ruin a lot of people's viability when they are literally the most efficient champion to pick every single time.
Hell, bruisers are so effective now that even APs and using sustained AP damage with tons of survive. Burst damage for them has fallen out of favor.
