-Melee carries can not attack ryze while they are rooted. Ranged carries can.
-Melee carries can not flash out of danger then still be attacking (they have to run back into danger.)
-Melee carries can not attack garen, ever. (They will be judged then ulted.) This means when garen initiates the melee carry has to stand back and wait, where as the ranged carry can open fire and force him back.
-Melee carries lane very poorly.
-In a team that includes 2 AoE ultimates melee carries never have to be attacked once, they will die by ult power alone.
-Melee carries spend the majority of team fights trying to get into range. Ranged carries spend the majority of team fights forcing their opponents to try to get out of range.

Why melee carries are UP:

Oh look, *root of choice* has NEXT TO NO COOLDOWN WHATSOEVER, and we have three of them.

Looks like he'll be sitting there being useless as anything besides a CC-cushion.

Don't give me that 'escape mechanism' bullcrap. Casters nowadays have more health than any melee carry thanks to Rod of Ages, and still do more damage simply because they don't have to close distances ever -.-

Very few melee carrys are viable anymore. Xin/Prolaf/Yi/WW are the only carrys that should be used.JMO.

Nowadays? Rod of Ages has been in this game forever. It's not like they threw it in a few months ago (unless you're citing the recent adjustment to its initial bonus health, but the amount is negligible to any point I'm sure you could be trying to prove).
