he got popular because
a- people figured out how to build/play him right and what his role was.
b- other adcarries got nerfed and stopped being played as much due to metachanges. Both corki/vayne got nerfed hard.

I think the biggest things were his Q actually hitting people and Corki getting nerfed

Mana helped a bit too

He was good when he was released, but a lot of players with limited knowledge of the game spammed threads about him being completely awful and unplayable until Riot decided to buff him. The buffs made him go from balanced to overpowered.

Now that he's being used and is popular, he's getting nerfed as per the test server patch notes.

Riot is great at ruining and destroying fun, like Sony is. Not really sure what they're logic is, or if there is any at all.

This. He was balanced on released. Those idiots got him buffed when he wasn't supposed to be!

He got a lot of attention after Samsung Blue's AD carry Deft started to play him in OGN and do really well. He got several changes to make him a bit more stronger and Corki got nerfed pretty hard, so he just naturally became one of the top ADs. People just didn't realize it until a couple months ago because the popular picks at the time were Vayne and Corki, so no one really paid attention to him.

nerfing the ratio on Q is a big mistake. The best nerf would be to the ratio on his passive early game, scaling back up to current 50% at level 16.

This post also proves that best people to "fix" or "Correct" a champ aren't the people that created them. It's the people that actually play them, in the trenches and suffer the poor design choices made by the folks rolling in free money.
