Phreak said they're planning on nerfing Jax again.
He's already pretty much the only viable melee DPS character in the game.
Yes, he needed the AP ratio nerfs because he had like 3 1 per ability power skills.
He needed the intitial passive nerf because it was just too good.
But again? Jax can be shut down pretty easily by CC. Not as easily as the failtastic other melee DPS Champions, but it's a perfectly good strategy.
It seems like Jax is going to be the new Udyr or Tryndamere - buffed to godhood, then nerfed back down into a joke.
I want to have a playable melee DPS character in the game, ****it.
I want to punch you.

Instead of nerfing Jax, buff:
Evelynn, Tryndamere, Yi, Pantheon, etc
Um, no. I've tried attack damage Jax, and he's only barely decent.
If you end up facing off against 2 characters with good CC, you will get reamed early game.
Is AP still the only viable way to build him, even after the nerfs?
People are afraid of Jax - is there any other melee DPS Champion in the game that people are genuinely concerned about? Because I can't think of a single one.
Have you ever played against him on TT?
Jax is *pretty good* on SR - as you said, and if SR was the only map I would be wary of (although not totally against) nerfing him.
However, now that TT is in normal games, there is absolutely no question that Jax needs nerfing.
