Why is Blade of the Ruined King not available in Dominion, but the AP equivalent, Blackfire Torch, is?

I want to see BotRK in Dom, who's with me?

as far as i recall, when S3 was starting, pretty much all of the higher elo players agreed that bortk would be really OP and be a must buy on all champs that could possibly use it. Blackfire torch on the other hand, was let through because towards the end of S2, bruisers were getting way too strong and bft was a way to give AP champs a way to deal with that. But if botrk is brought back in, bruiser meta returns and APs dont have the item advantage that they need to survive against the bruiser generally superior base stats. Thats how i see it anyway

Dom needs botrk. Adc's need all the help they can get here. Isn't that class that it helps the most?

The issue here is that it is very difficult to create an item that ADC's want that Bruisers do not.

The real question is, why must you resist calling it BORK?!

I'd much rather call it kingblade than BORK.

I also want to play around with a ranged only version of this item.

item is designed to counter health stacking which doesnt rly exist on dominion on same level (in fact dom often has mass armor stack).

not to mention as much as it would conceptually help ad carries, every bruiser can build this item too and i think ad carries lose out overall so gggggggg

even at low hp levels the passive still makes it the best, even over infinity edge for 1000 gold less.

riot did zero balance testing just like the black cleaver release.

The real reason I want it is because Dominion gets absolutely lulzy when an OP item is released here.

Now SR gets to have the fun borking everyone, while we watch from the side and have a sad. By the time Nome agrees to port it here, SR will have balanced it into boringness.
