this is partly due to power creep, partly due to the way AD works compared to AP, partly due to item costs, partly due to overarching champion design philosophy shifts, partly due to player perceptions, partly due to a lot of things.

with so many things to fix, you really have to wonder why it is that Riot isn't even trying any of them.

There are a couple characters in game that can burst down tanks fairly quickly, however a lot of them are not used in high elo due to the fact they don't offer much else in the way of team buffs, stuns / cc etc...

It would be interesting to see a champ that does more dmg depending on the enemies armor / mr. Perhaps for every 5 bonus armor / mr you do an additional 3 true damage to that target and put a temporary debuff on them or reducing their armor globally and also per 150 bonus health you slow them by 3%.

To make him viable in team fights, allow him to target the enemy champion and shoot him causing him to "explode" dealing a % of his HP + armor + MR to nearby enemies and himself.

Those are just ideas that would make it a stronger character vs tanks but not as much versus other classes.

Madred's Bloodrazor's + Atack Speed. 4% Max health damage every hit plus whatever damage you usually do. Warwick becomes a pretty nice tank-killer late game, but he's not overpowered at all.

True damage is a very powerful thing. Any champ that can deal a lot of true damage needs to also be squishy as hell to compensate for it, but that just isnt the case right now.

@ The OP: 100% agree with you on how much ridiculous damage certain champs put out, even in 75% tank gear. There is no balance nor fairness when it comes to that.

kog maw with a bloodrazor is a tank killer, while he can stand infront of a tank and take him down the damage from a carry would overwhelm him and kill him before he had the chance to get enough hits off...

Percentage max health means it does more damage to tanks than it does to squishies. 4% of 1850 with 50 armour, or 3500 with 200 armour is still only 4%.

If it was a tank killer based on flat damage then you would have an argument.
