Mundo and Shyv are not, and have never been as strong as Renekton

Yet they're the only ones who get nerfed as Renekton stays the same.

Mundo was actually the least of a problem yet he was nerfed the hardest.

I swear everyone at Riot is an ADC main (specifically Jinx and Lucian) and know nothing about their own game.

Renekton is the scapegoat for much larger issues in top lane. There's a reason Riot hasn't nerfed him yet, it's because they really need to rework the top lane / jungle interaction as well as how the 1v2 meta impacts champ diversity.

It isn't Renekton that invalidates 80% of the potential top lane pool, it's the 2v1 meta and ability to towerdive with your early game jungler at 6 with no risk vs anyone not building full tank.

Yes he appears to be the obvious, most blaring issue but Riot needs to fix the underlying issues first.

wrong, Mundo and Shyv were WAY better in s2.

Renek was borderline trollpick.

They were at the beginning of Season 4, when the Perseverance mastery was much stronger and the Doran's Shield wasn't nerfed. Sure Renekton benefited from that mastery too, but he didn't need it and it boosted Shyvana and Mundo to the point where they could reliably survive Renekton's early/mid game. After that Shyvana and Mundo outscaled Renekton because of their percentage damage.
