By this logic everyone should be afraid of Sona's ult.

Much harder to dodge Malphite's ult than Sona's ult. His also hits harder, and he's harder to kill.

Because people do things out of habit. It doesnt matter if malph is relatively balanced. Hecarim is far stronger. Give it time...

They're still banning shen

Because he screws over ADC. People are just afraid of making their overrated trump cards useless. I can't wait until the meta moves away from ADCs.

Really strong ultimate that changes the course of teamfights, current team comp's are uncreative and don't include hybrid champions, or melee ADC's.

He ruins AD carries pretty unavoidably for a long period.

Other then that nothing special, but hes a safe carry neutralizer who also is invincbile to most ADs and has a top tier init

Since they nerfed all attack speed reduction items, you could conclude that his attack speed reduction is even more valuable.


How about think about it this way. HP stacking is more effective than armor in season 3, and Malphite is dependent on armor stacking. Armor items become more expensive. It's more like a nerf.
