They wanted to create a melee ADC, ideally one that works.

That was the intention. The results, well...yeah.

Fiora is a math problem. Most champs are just 'deal X damage uunti you take Y damage', with 'deal CC every some seconds', where X is based on your gold/items and Y is based on theirs. Some are specialized, 'Deal X damage to one champ in one rotation' (assassins) or 'survive until tteam fight ends (cleanup)

Fiora is 'deal X until you take Y, then become untargetable for 2 Seconds. if the teamfight is over, clean up'. A fed enough fiora will survive for Y = (team fight length - 2) seconds, then cleans up. She's both a squishy high damage carry that deals as much damage as possible, and then someone who mops up a mostly-completed teamfight. Because her role is split to very start and very end of a teamfight, she rarely does both her jobs.

If a fiora deals enough damage or survives until there's enemies with 1/4 health or less, she's played optimally. And she's terrifying. Everyone else has jobs that only happen at one point in time, or recurring over intervals (start of fight, end, every CD seconds). Hers is both a start and end, so her use is directly tied to teamfigt length.

MAAAAAAATH

They wanted to shut the "WE NEED MOAR MAYLAY CURRIES" crowd up.

To make money and scam their loyal playerbase/suckers out of money.

They weren't thinking, they were too busy staring at her ass.
