Because it shuts down all ad users ultra hard.

Edit:You can always try alternatives, they have high attack speed? Randuins/frozen heart shuts dem down.
High ad burst? try a more hp/armour approach, sunfire cape and randuins does wonders.

problem is nothing counters blade of ruined king xept thornmail, and thats just a retarded excuse to not have thornmail no offence, simply dont play triple bruiser, thats the problem people play triple bruiser/ad and then complain about thornmail, removing thornmail is not the way to go about it.

+1 thornmail is needed in this meta especially in 3v3.

that is false.
Randuins/frozen heart are direct counters to blade of the ruined king.
Armor and reduced attack speed counter are the perfect counter for on hit effect physical items/abilties.

In fact Thornmail in no way counters blade of the ruined king as it does not actualy return the damage you dealt with the passive. Sure, it has 99 armor, but frozen heart has 95 reduces attack speed by 20% AND gives you 20% Cooldown reduction.

Not to mention there are quite a few champions that have inbuild defenses against attack speed based mechanics. such as gragas/malphite/lee sin.

Blade of the ruined king=phisical damage=armor reduces the damage=recent patch made its active to give less hp according to enemy armor (removes some damage, same with heal)

So... It isn't THAT op, though they nerfed it already

Thornmail in the start of the New Twisted Treeline was the best! Good times
