Even with the nerf, I still see him as a common pick, and he still rocks lanes.

Because he still has unique things. Its not like morgana would suddenly become a different champ if you nerfed her dark binding duration till rank 4 and her tormented soil damage got worse. It would just mean she became a worse pick for a champion. Champs get nerfed by how common they are so instead of balancing the game? Not sure how that makes sense. They don't want you to bother playing champs you like?

Taric was too much of a low-risk-high-reward champion during laning phase and had game-changing auras into the late game. I have known that forever (as in since i picked him up in season 2) and played him because of it. Now that he is more in line with the rest of the league I don't even touch him because hes boring as hell. The only reason I ever put up with his ****ty boringness is because he was so strong. He's now a champion that is really easy to play and isn't ridiculously good in invisible ways.

After his nerfs other supports can provide even better buffs and auras than him to allies and still be effective late game. The early game Taric nerfs made him equal in lane to other supports. So after 2 nerfs he's not in line with other supports he is outclassed by other supports and is weak and unbalanced. Just because a champion is easy to play doesn't mean the champion can't be good. And just because a champion is hard to play doesn't mean its going to be op. And yes I picked him up in season 2 also.

He's way worse than other supports now.

There's a difference between trying to balance the game for fairness and making a character so ineffective its insane.

I agree that the eve nerfs were totally unnecessary and riot just killed eve. I did play a few games right after the nerfs for eve but I stopped because she is just too weak and broken. I think before riot nerfs a champion they should consider the general play style of the champion. For example, xin is an all in champion. Meaning that when xin charges at a group of enemies either:
a. Xin dies get no kills
b. Xin dies but gets kills
thankfully the nerfs didn't completely destroy him as he is still a strong jungler and top lane.
