They feel atad delicate compared to ranged in situations involving towers or big aoe spells.

Like around ranged can sit around their tower and harass oncoming enemies, and they can harass enemy towers without too much risk unless the other side is loaded with all ranged. Towers are also brutal here compared to dota

Alot of big aoe spells like blizzard/storm of crows/veigars stun drop melee into a situation where they are probably best off getting out of the way(which usually means dropping their target) until the hazard clears by. Range can just move out of the aoe and get focusing on the enemy.

They could use something as little like +3armor/spellblock.

Yes, this is a problem everyone has realized - Jax, Tryndamere, and Master Yii are mostly endangered species right now.

you can't really fix this... that doesn't mean melee are useless, they just take a different play style. Hang back and go in right after the tanks. Most melee are "mop up" champions as they have to hang back and let the casters nuke each other then go in, and "mop up" the remains of their HP while the enemy is waiting on cooldowns (their spells to come around again).

Well thats the problem there, non-tank melee have hazards to worry about and avoid. If they're spending time avoiding hazards that leave most of their team dead after wards, they contribute nothing to the fight till their team is basically wasted. Which would be a different story if they were playing a tank/ranged hero instead.

Mind you this is only really applies for mostly aoe ults(and veigars stun).

Tryndamere just needs a rage bar system instead of that horrible cast from HP system. Don't get me wrong, I love the idea of Champions with multiple ability systems. But cast from HP is more fitting for a magic-wielder who can hang back and do serious damage and have a chance of getting away. For a melee DPS, it's not exactly a great idea.
