Shouldn't Draven be kind of a mediocre fighter?

No ADC does that really well. Possibly Graves, but not really.

Draven hangs back in the group and hits people in the nape of the neck and then takes all the glory. Sounds like Yoloqueue ADC to- um, sounds like Draven to me.
Are we talking about the same Draven, strongest AD Carry in the game damage wise, that dumps on everyone early on when they get too cocky to trade?

In what realm of LoL do you play? Under ELO Hell?

No, just no.

Gladiators were a valued resource. Would you kill off your way of making money? Fights to the death were very uncommon for gladiatorial matches.

I expect that most of the prisoners he kills are trying to run up and wring his neck.

If lore dictated actual ingame strength Master Yi would be the most overpowered champion in the league.

This was true of long term, trained gladiators, but the majority of "gladiators" were just slaves who nobody wanted any more. They were thrown out into the arena to die to animals or other, trained and well equipped gladiators. Those few who prospered and survived were the ones who became the people you are talking about.

No it basically says they are just trying to run away from him.

People tossed into the ring to fight AS a "gladiator" were prisoner/slaves, they werent 'real' Gladiators, not like the Veterran ones that massacre them, that's the attraction, throw in basically peasents with a weapon to fight a match against a goliath, they'd die, hence the analogy as previously stated.

you mistake is putting draven onpar with some peasent farmer that was caugth as a prisoner made to fight

I would assume that sometimes he gave the prisoner a weapon, just to make it more interesting. He was also a soldier before he was an executioner anyway. They probably gave him the job because he was so good at killing people in combat.

Isn't that what he is? Other than the basic stats, doesn't he has 0 defense mecanism aside from his slow and speedboost (both of those who are also part of his offense) and the fact he can possibly busrt you faster than you can do for him.
